I love to make wall art and I thought it would be fun to use the new Cricut Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and assorted Close to My Heart papers and embellishments (including the "Express Yourself" stamp). I picked up this 8" x 8" plaque at Hobby Lobby during a recent clearance sale and got to work.
The "Express Yourself" stamp is framed by a Close to My Heart metal frame and then mounted on two layers on chipboard shapes. The beige and blue shape was cut with the Cricut and then mounted on the matching chipboard.
Here is another close up of the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge bundle:
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 dimentional chipboard for $99. 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)
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.
The bundle sells for $99 (item # Z1686) and considering the stamp sets alone would retail for over $17 each, this is a great deal.
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...
You can only get the Art Philosophy cartridge in this bundle and through a Close to My Heart consultant. If you do not have a consultant and would like to purchase this cartridge bundle, head over to my Close to My Heart site by clicking HERE.
