Artiste Collection - Pictures!

Woo Hoo! I got my Artiste Cricut Collection today!!! Can't wait to start creating! But first I thought I'd take a moment to show you the stamps and describe the package contents to you.

First of course there is the cartridge and the normal trimmings: keypad overlay, handbook and Cricut Rewards (90 points, woo hoo!).

There is a second booklet about the same size as the handbook of Assembly Instructions. Next to the 3D images in the handbook, there is a green circle with the page number in the Assembly booklet. In the picture below, the handbook is on the bottom. Can you see the green circles with numbers (25 and 26) next to the picture of the pop up cards and the mailbox? The booklet in the foreground is the Assembly book turned to pages 25 & 26 which shows the assembly of these projects. Isn't that nifty?

The kit comes with the three stamp sets shown below: Kudos, Birthday & Word Balloons.

Cricut Artiste -- Kudos

Cricut Artiste -- Birthday

Cricut Artiste -- Word Balloons
There are are also three sheets of 12" x 9" sheets of chipboard. Like the stamps, these shapes correspond directly with images on the cartridge. You will be able to purchase additional sheets of these shapes from the Idea Book.

I'm really excited about the last sheet. You can cut your papers to match the shapes on the Cricut then assemble into a quick mini-album. Dress up as much or little as you want. You can even cut out a cover with a closure flap.

So there you have it. Let me know if you have any questions about what is on the cartridge or how to use it. If you are ready to purchase, you will want to check out my July special on my Cricut page.

Time for me to stop talking and start creating. Happy Times!
