New Stuff

**For the Shaping Up Blog Hop and Giveaways please scroll down

Sometimes I am so excited to get new goodies, that when they get here it's like I have writer's block. I kind of stare at the stuff and can't figure out where to start and what to do.

That's kind of what happened when my magical box of new CTMH stuff came yesterday. Thankfully I seem to have gotten over it.

This is just a simple card that uses one of the word bubble stamps that comes with the Cricut cartridge.

The candy stripe and chevron strips are stamps from the double stamp set that is available as a special starting August 15th called It's Your Day.

The set is so much fun and you can buy it for $5 with a $35 purchase between August 15th and September 30th. BUT, I'm going to offer a special to my readers and customers. If you purchase the Cricut Artiste Cartridge Collection set between August 15th and September 30th, I'll cover the cost of the double stamp set.

The Artiste Cartridge Collection ($99) has 700 images (you can see the handbook here) including interactive cards, three dimensional items, party favors and decorations, coordinating stamp shapes, a new font, rolled flowers, and much more. It comes with a separate booklet that provides step by step instructions for assembling the three dimensional pieces. In addition, you will receive three D size stamp sets that coordinate with the cartridge as well as three sets of coordinating dimensional elements (chipboard pieces).

Note: You need to order the cartridge directly from me so that I can apply the discount. You do need to wait until August 15th for the stamp set special to go live. If you can't wait to get the Artiste Collection and want to order it before the 15th, I will still cover the cost of the It's Your Day set when you place a $35 order between August 15th and September 30th. If you'd like to take advantage of my special offer, just shoot me an email.

Hope you have a great weekend!
