I have been playing with my new CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge and I am having a ball. I don't even own a Cricut, but a friend of my keeps hers here because she doesn't have room for it. So I decided to buy the Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart. It has 700 images on it. You can make all sorts of cards, boxes, envelopes, sacks, etc. The list seems endless and it is so easy to use.
Also when you buy the cartridge for $99, you get three CTMH acrylic stamps sets that coordinate with the Artiste cartridge and you also get coordinating chip boards sets that match the cartridge and the stamp sets. Not only do you get a booklet that shows you how to cut, you also get a booklet that shows you how to assemble everything. There are also how to videos on the CTMH website and You tube.
I am a newbie and have never used a Cricut before and this has been so fun. Here's a couple of the things I made this week. I made a whole lot more and am not thru yet.
You can order the Cricut Artiste cartridge from my Close to My Heart website www.meemee.ctmh.com
You will not regret it. I was only going to buy 1 cartridge. They have 2 others. Art Philosphy and Artbooking, but if they are as good as the Artiste, I will have to have all 3.
