Add Cricut flair to any workshop

You all know that I love to make the most of my paper, stickease, and embellishments and still offer creative, and artistic layouts with my kit of the month groups. Well that has gotten even easier with my Cricut and the Art Philosophy collection. Take a look at this video and get an idea of how you can take your layouts to the next level just by cutting out some shapes from the Art Philosophy cartridge.

If you are excited as I was to start creating with the Art Philosophy collection and that beautiful Dreamin' paper, then please contact me at or go to my website and place an order now and get started creating your own beautiful artwork with the help of Cricut and Close to My Heart!

Flowers How-to video

I am loving my cricut and the sound of chirping can be heard through my house all day long :) I wanted to share with you a video that shows how to make some fun flowers using the exclusive Close to My Heart Z1686 Art Philosophy Cricut collection, D1491 Hooray Bouquet stamp set, and X7141B Elemental Level 2 paper pack. What I am loving the cartridge for, is that I don't have to cut out my stamped images anymore. I can just program my cricut to cut it for me and in just a minute I can have as many flowers as I want cut out. Then all I have to do is stamp them up and start creating and decorating.
