NEW** CTMH Cricut Cartridge ARTBOOKING!

On August 1st Close To My Heart is releasing a new Cricut Cartridge called Artbooking!  It is amazing and a must for every Cricut owner.  Here is a brief description along with the handbook screenshots:

Artbooking is packed with 700 different cuts:
- 30 Themed DOUBLE Page Layouts (total of 60 layouts) all sizes coordinated
- 10 Themed Mini Albums (8x8, 6x6, 5x7) with minimum 8 pages each

Full page and partial page overlays (square and rectangles of each overlay) which can also be used as stencils for inking or misting
- Loads of phrases
- Themed accessory images
- Themed and decorated photo mats
- Font
- So much you won't believe your eyes!
And if you say to yourself, well this one isn't for me because I mostly do cards, gifts or home decor then think again because ALL of it can be re-sized and used as pieces for any kind of paper crafting project!  It has just about every image you can think of.
I am running a PRE-ORDER special!  For any order of ARTBOOKING placed by July 20th, I will discount $10 off the price and sending you a FREE Autumn/Winter 2013 Catalog ($9 value with shipping) right away so you can see all the new stuff before anyone else.  If you pre-order Artbooking AND spend $150 or more I will discount your order $20!  You must contact me directly to place your order,
