Retiring CTMH Cricut® Collections

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that some of the Cricut® collections are retiring on July 31, 2016 and are only available while supplies last.

Unfortunately the Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection has already sold out and there are fewer than 50 of the Cricut® Artiste Collection remaining. The retiring Cricut® collections that are:

Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection
(Z1686) - SOLD OUT
Cricut® Artiste Collection
(Z3170) - SOLD OUT
Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection

Each of the retiring CTMH Cricut® collections includes the cartridge with 700 images, the keypad overlay, the handbook (Artiste also includes an Assembly Instructions booklet with how to put the 3-D projects together), three exclusive My Acrylix® D-size stamp sets (not available for individual purchase) and a package of cardstock.

Here are some 3D projects that I created using the Artiste Collection:

Easter Basket
Christmas Box
Birthday Box
Cracker Box - height set at 5"
Cracker Box - height set at 8.45"
If the Cricut® Artiste Collection (Z3170) interests you, please do not delay placing your order. Once folks learn so few are available I believe they will sell out quickly.

If you are interested in the Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection (Z3168), I have a page devoted to tips and tricks for using the collection with links to the Corporate-produced videos featuring the different function keys on the cartridge.

If you would like to see my other posts featuring the cartridges, please click on the label at the bottom of this post and you will be taken to posts that feature the cartridge.

Thank you for looking at my creations using the Cricut® Artiste Collection. Have a great day!

Retiring Home Décor Items

Close To My Heart is retiring several home décor items on July 31, 2016. Here are the products as they appear in the Idea Book and on my OBA.

5" × 7" Hinged Display Tray
Display Tray
Designed Décor Black Shadow Box
Designed Décor Red Magnetic Chalkboard

I have created a few home décor items using these products; I have other ideas, but unfortunately time is not always on my side and I have not had an opportunity to complete them yet. For example,
my maternal great-great-grandparents had 9 children, so I plan to use the Display Tray (Z1750) for a future family reunion. I plan to dedicate a square to each child and a square to their mother and father.

This is a 5" × 7" Hinged Display Tray I created. It will be auctioned or raffled off at my family reunion on August 6.

This is the left side of the frame. The photos are my maternal great-great-grandparents.

This is the right side of the frame. The photo includes six of their children, including my maternal great-grandfather. I printed their names, date of birth and date of death on the yellow paper and the names of the children in the photo on the red paper.

I use the Designed Décor Shadow Boxes to display layouts I create. This is the Black option.

Unfortunately the Colonial White option has already sold out.

If you are ready to place an order or would like to research any product, the Shop Now button will take you there.
