Dreamin' Layout with NEW CTMH Cricut Cart!

I have had my Cricut for about 4 years and have been a CTMH consultant for almost 2 years.  I've often thought how wonderful it would be to be able to combine CTMH's fabulous stamps with Cricut cuts that would fit those stamped images.  Well, I'm dreamin' no more!  As of August 1st, Close To My Heart will release the exclusive Art Philosophy  cartridge and stamp sets!

I have never been so excited for a Cricut OR CTMH release.  I received my order yesterday and have been playing with all the goodies every second I can.  This is my first project from the new collection but I promise there will be many more!

I began with the gorgeous new Dreamin' papers.  Another exciting addition to CTMH is that our new patterned papers are printed on a heavier weight paper than before.  Also, the price is lower on the patterned paper packs AND all of our stamps!  The papers cut beautifully in the Cricut.  Everything on the layour was cut with the new CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, including the dimensional flowers!  After cutting the three banner pieces, I used the coordinating stamps to stamp the pieces with the border and words.  Since, I followed the guidelines on the stamp set, the images fit perfectly on the cutouts!

Be sure to click on the photo so you can see all the yummy details.  The "leaves" for the flowers are actually the pieces that were left after the large background "flower" was cut.  I also added a design to the background cardstock using the "star" stamp from the Art Philosophy stamps.

Are you ready to get your own Art Philosophy Set?  When you order it, you will receive the Cricut cartridge (it includes over 700 images and an alphabet), 3 coordinating large stamp sets and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard shapes. All for $99.  Imagine all the gifts, home decor, cards and more you can make with this set!  You can pre-order by contacting me now or wait and order on August 1st from my website:
