There is a new Close To My Heart Cricut® Collection called Flower Market and it comes in two versions: with a physical cartridge (Z3285) and as a digital only option (Z3290).
|Cricut® Flower Market Collection (Z3285)|
|Cricut® Flower Market Digital Collection (Z3290)|
Both collections include the same images and come with 3 – My Acrylix® D-size stamp sets and 1 – Adventure cardstock combo pack (20 sheets of cardstock – 2 each of 10 colors). If you order the digital collection the only differences are you will receive a code to redeem for the images and you will not receive a keypad overlay or handbook (a PDF of the handbook (PDF will open in new window) is now available on the Cricut® Handbooks page). You will then redeem the code online at the URL provided on the card. The product description for the digital version states "Only available for use with Cricut® Explore™ and Cricut® Explore Air™", so plan your purchase for the type of Cricut® you own (see note about my experience below).
The three stamp sets included in the Flower Market Collection are:
- D1708 – Sending Smiles
- D1709 – Line It Up
- D1710 – Playful Patterns
As I mentioned earlier if you order the digital collection you will receive a card with a code on it. You will need to scratch off the coating that hides the code and then go to the URL listed to redeem your code. If you are not signed into your Cricut® account you will be prompted to sign in. The screen to redeem your code looks like this (disclosure: the screen shots are from linking a different digital code; I purchased the physical cartridge of Flower Market):
Once the code is accepted, you will see the message "Promotion Successfully Redeemed!" in a blue bar. Here you may enter another code, if you have purchased other digital cartridges, or move to other areas of the Cricut® website (I looked at my Linked Cartridges list before moving to Cricut® Design Space).
Once your cartridge is linked (redeemed) you will then be able to search for and use Flower Market in Cricut® Design Space. I was unable to view the Flower Market images in CDS until my physical cartridge was linked.
I was able to see Flower Market in Cricut® Craft Room and add images to my mat before linking the physical cartridge, however I did not try to cut any of the images from CCR after linking my cartridge. You may be able to purchase the digital collection and use it with CCR and your Expression 2 (and earlier Cricut® machines), but I do not guarantee it.
If you are interested in purchasing the Flower Market collection, please consider having a Gathering. Your Gathering can be in your home, online or as Facebook party. At $150 in sales you receive $25 in Hostess Rewards; at $250 you receive $40 in rewards AND one item at 50% off. And the rewards can be greater with increased sales. Wouldn't it be wonderful to get the Flower Market cartridge for approximately $50? Details about being a hostess can be found on page 5 of Annual Inspirations 2016-17 or on my OBA here. If are are ready to place an order or would like to research any product, the Shop Now button will take you there.
