Joy Christmas Layout with Close to My Heart CTMH Art Philosophy!


Today's one page layout was made using the new Cricut Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and Close to My Heart Christmas papers and accessories (flowers and brads).

I loved these Christmas trees and wanted to use them as accents to my large 5" x 7" photo mat. I love the swirls in them. The upper right hand corner of the photo mat is a corner piece cut from this cartridge. (see top photo)
These swirls on the photo above are also from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge - I love how swirls can add so much detail to a page.

Below, you can see the two fonts layered on one another. They can work in conjunction with one another (as shown) or alone (bottom layer).  The tag section is also from the cartridge. You can see a bit of the semi-circle journaling tag - I also cut this from the Close to My Heart CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
Here is another close up of the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge bundle:


The cartridge is a full size, includes two fonts, as well as many tags and layered images.  Not only that, there are other stamp sets in the Close to My Heart catalog that coordinate with this cartridge, redefining the idea of stamping and then cutting out your image.

If you are still on the fence because you need more information, let me help you out with that. The cartridge is only sold as a bundle at this time which includes 3 full-size stamp sets and three sheets of dimensional chipboard for $99 (item # Z1686). Not a bad price considering the stamp sets are typically more than $17 each and the chip board is about $5 each. (click image below to see larger)

Not a stamper but still would like the cartridge?  Don't forget that the stamp sets included in the bundle are exclusive and there may be others who would like to just own those...
