Close To My Heart Convention, New Idea Book, New Products, and MORE!!
I have been a Close To My Heart Consultant for two years now and I just attended my very first Convention in Dallas, TX! I had so much fun that I have already made plans to go to the next one in Orlando, FL! I may have gone alone, but I met so many wonderful Close To My Heart sisters, and they made me feel right at home. One of my favorite things I got to do there was participate in the card swaps. I only got around to making 75 of them...I know sad right? But I brought home 75 new cards with all diferent levels of talent. Next year I will make more!

* Cutting and assembling the MANY 3-D items is a snap using the projects reference
* There is a sepperate step-by-step assembly book.
* Each key has items that work together. For instance, if there are things that
work together, they are on the same key. If they layer with eachother: same key!
Get the idea?
* Many keys are themed for different things. For example: wedding, birthday,
* If you have your 'Real Dial Size' off, all layering pieces will automatically
cut to fit the bottom image, without having to resize.
* Many of our new stamp sets coordinate with this cartridge. As you go through
the new Idea Book (which will go live here on my blog on August 1st), you
will see many sets that have images the are outlined in red. Those items
coordinate with Cricut images. It will specify which cartridge (Artist or Art
Philosophy). When you receive your stamp set, you will see that it also tells
you what size to cut the image as well as which page to find it on the
