See the Cricut Soccer is Life Sports Gift Bag!

So, yesterday, I told you guys that I just joined Close To My Heart.  

Guess what I found out?  

Close to My Heart doesn't retire any of the stamp sets that go with the Cricut Art Philosophy or the Cricut Artiste cartridges, 

   - as long as they aren't a "stamp of the month" or "special purchase" or "in a workshop to go kit".  

That means there are many more than are just listed in the current Close to My Heart catalog. 

Currently, there are 61 sets available - not counting stamp of the months, workshop kits, etc.

I have found a handy link for you to go see them all - click HERE or on the badge below.

Just thought I'd share that with you - I was astonished at how many cool stamp sets there are that match these cartridges.  Read under each stamp set closely in the link above to see which cartridge they work with - sometimes it's even both!

Now onto today's project - A sporty gift bag for dad or any soccer loving person you may know!
Pin It
 This bag was made with the Cricut Sports Mania cartridge.  You need this cartridge if you have any athletes or sports fans in your life - it's incredible.  I love the graphic design feel of the cartridge.
I cut the "soccer is life" at 2-1/2" and the soccer ball graphic at 7".  Quick and easy!

This week's giveaway is the Cricut Create A Critter 2 Cartridge!
How can you win?

1) Leave a comment below (or by clicking HERE if you are seeing this in email) letting me know if you like linky parties.  Those are blog posts where people can add links to their own projects.  Click HERE if you don't know how to leave a comment.

  7. Love your cute gift bag! I DO like linky parties...as long as there are not too many to hop through...just like blog hops. Once you have to hop through more than maybe 8, I find people loose interest, the last links don't get visited or commented on!
