I cannot wait to get my hands on this awesome cartridge! This is only one of the great new products in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book.

Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection

Cricut® Cartridge Creativity

We’re delighted to introduce the exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy collection! We’ve worked with Provo Craft* to bring you a Cricut® cartridge filled with 700 shapes hand-selected by company founder and CEO Jeanette Lynton. Simply insert the cartridge into your Cricut® machine (sold at retail stores) and you’re ready to cut any of the shapes with the touch of a button! Choose from stunning rosettes, unique gift boxes, elegant doilies, crafty banners, and more. The exclusive images are incredibly versatile, and many are designed to be used with specific My Acrylix® stamps for real eye-popping power!

Cartridge & More

Bring your artwork to life with stamps and chipboard Dimensional Elements! When you purchase the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge,** you’ll also receive three exclusive D-size stamp sets and three sets of Dimensional Elements designed to perfectly coordinate with images on the cartridge. That’s a retail value of over $120 US / $140 CAN for just for $99/$109.95! Stamp on your Cricut shapes; cover your Dimensional Elements with a Cricut shape; or cut, stamp, and then cover!

Numerous My Acrylix® stamp images in our Idea Book  pair wonderfully with images on our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

A little bit of Spring

Here, in Alberta, we still have lots of snow and cold days, not too many warm days for this time of year. The girls are asking to go out without their jackets and say "well it's Spring"... but not the normal kinda Spring/April weather we normally have. 
So to bring some Spring like looks to us, we purchased these cute little bird houses from Dollarama. The girls painted one each and the others got modged podged. I think they turned out great! 
We wanna do some more of these. I will be on the search for a rub on that says "every birdy welcomed" for my next house :) 
Hope you enjoy!

New Altered Items

Found these great little holders with dividers at Dollarama (love that place!). 
Added some paint, paper with mod podge, bling bling, flowers and ribbons.
I also altered a clipboard for my desk area at work :)

The one (below) with yellow paint, white rose flowers and blue, yellow and brown pattern paper is altered by one of my talented daughters. I think she did an awesome job!

 Hope you like!
