Introducing the new CTMH Cricut Creativity Cartridge, The Art Philosophy Collection! The Collection consists of one Cricut cartridge, 3 "D" sized Stamp sets and 3 sheets of 9x12 dimensional elements.

It's so exciting that CTMH has combined the Cricut images with stamps that complement.... making Scrapping and card making... faster simpler and easier. The Stamp sheet will have the best size to complement the stamp.

Paper Packets

Studio J is the new Level one! pages can be done in minutes, without all the materials. Look for the Studio J layout with each kit.

There are eight new kits in the idea book: Typeset, Roxie, Elemental (non denominational), Dreamin, Sonoma, Mischief, Believe, and Wonderland. There is a new look with new paper with each kit. Each kit now contains six sheets of the new B&T card stock... they are double sided and will have a usable "Zip Strip". There will also be 6 coordinating card stocks. One more exciting feature, the price is lower! Level 2 paper packs are now just $9.95! How great is that!!!

Tips and Techniques are always a feature with each kit... be sure to try each one of them! And also check out the coordinating products that your special signature touch! liked Glitz, Bling, Just blooms and more...

Another new and exciting change are the "Complements". Before, they were just my Stickease. Now they are a new way of adding dimension to your projects... some will be canvas sheets, chipboard, stickease, rub ons and stickease as well. they are designed to complement your project! And the good news, they are still just $4.95!

There is also a suggestion for an additional project. For example, Mischief, the Halloween kit includes a suggestion to make a banner, SPOOKY, and it tells you to find hints and tips at (should be available Aug 1st for the new idea book)
