Published: Thursday, June 27, 2013

Well I just got out of General Session at the Close To My Heart Convention (Day 1), ate my lunch quickly in the Directors Only section and now back in my room blogging to all you fabulous customers who are dying to know what new products got revealed at the Close To My Heart Convention. Are you seated? Are you ready for this... 

I want to start out with the best for you all but I truly think it's all the best. Seriously amazing new products that I'm thrilled about and know you all will LOVE them too. Ok so let's just say get ready to PRE-ORDER cause we have a NEW Cricut Collection called Artbooking. There are oodles of images... 700 to be exact. There are 15 layout themes, you can create several coordinating pages for each theme using just TWO keys and one dial size. Images include accents, borders, titles, overlays, photo mats - in standard photo size... and more! Now how cool is that? The keys are optimized for creating 12" x 12" pages but get this... there are also 10 themed mini books (various sizes). You ready to hear the different themes that are on this cartridge? Birthdays, new baby, vacations, friends, sports, Halloween, Christmas and so much more! Once you're done with cutting it even comes with 3 coordinating stamps and dimensional elements to spice up your projects.
