I'M BACK!! Art Philosophy review....


The weather cooled down this weekend and I was able to get in my craft room last night. I designed 4 cards using the Close To My Heart - Art Philosophy bundle and was able to get two of them completed. Okay ya'll know how I it was actually 8 cards, 4 of each design. I am going to try and get the other two designs completed today and get posts ready for the rest of the week of the projects.

I was asked by Melanie, whom you may know from COURTNEY LANE DESIGNS and EVERYDAY CRICUT, to do a review on the Art Philosophy bundle. Melanie is also a Close To My Heart consultant and was so excited about this bundle she wanted to make sure all Cricut lovers are aware of this product. Melanie knows me well enough to know that if I didn't like the product I wasn't going to endorse or post about it. Well guess what...OOO EEMMM GGEEE!! I SO LOVE THIS BUNDLE!!

The fabulous thing is that the bundle comes with stamps and chipboard shapes that match some of the cuts on the cartridge and the guess work is taken out for you because the sizes you need to cut are printed on the packaging! I will post more about that later, hmm, or make a video just so you guys can see how cool it is!!

If you would like to order this bundle you can visit Melanie's CTMH website, MELANIEBROWNMYCTMH and order from there. There is a great promotion going on for the month of September if you order this bundle before the end of the month. Check out Melanie's post HERE to read more about the great promotion along with seeing a super cute card she made using the bundle.

Anywho, I wanted to let you guys know that I am gonna be back to crafting and there should be posts each day this week of the cards I am making with the Art Philosophy bundle. Oh and never fear I will be posting links to download the projects in Design Studio format and the Gypsy format!!

  10. I ordered this cartridge through Melanie Brown and I just want everyone to know WOW, she is a fantastic person to deal with!! As for the cartridge, this is my new 'go-to' cartridge for labels, tags, there is some cool cuts for background pages and so much more on there. Haven't tried the 3d flowers yet, but I'm excited to find more time just to play with this cartridge.
