New Idea Books
September 1 brings us not one, but two, new Idea Books.
2015-16 Annual Inspirations
The 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations book is valid from September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2016. It shows the core products of Close To My Heart, including inks, re-inkers, cardstock, albums, tools, etc. as well as six new My Reflections collections and a variety of new stamp sets.
A note about the four previous Cricut® collections: Art Philosophy, Artiste, Artbooking and Artfully Sent. They have been re-packaged and have new product numbers. Each will now include a package of colored cardstock instead of Dimensional Elements (or White Daisy cardstock which was included with Artfully Sent). The images on the cartridges and included stamp sets have not changed, only the consumable products included with it.
Also, Artistry is available digitally if you use Cricut® Design Space with any of the Cricut® Explore machines. The item number for the Cricut® Artistry Digital Collection is Z3190. You will still receive the stamp sets and cartstock as if you had ordered the collection with the cartridge, but rather than a physical cartridge, you will receive an online code and instructions for redeeming the code to link the images to your Cricut® account.
The Holiday Expressions book is valid from September 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015. It includes two new My Reflections collections and a variety of stamp sets which focus on Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Holiday Expressions also shows the Stamp of the Month stamp sets.
When you place an order on my OBA on or after September 1, and have not already taken advantage of an offer for a free copy of 2015 Holiday Expressions, you will be prompted to add a copy to your cart. If you already have a 2015 Holiday Expressions, please take advantage of the offer and share the copy with a friend or family member.
If you are ready to place an order or would like to research any product, the Shop Now button will take you there.
