Live In the Moment Card with Cricut Artbooking Cartridge 24

Hello Everyone!  Artbooking Cartridge Close To My Heart

Yesterday I got to spend the entire day with my 5 year old on his first Kindergarten field trip!  So much fun! I am going to share a few pics at the bottom of this post! 😉

Today though I wanted to share a really easy card that would be a lot of fun to make many of using the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  Do you ever get confused by sizing with this cartridge?  I wanted to show you a few tricks – how to use Fit to Length for the perfect card front, how to use Real Dial Size to make sure your stamps fit perfectly into the cut out image!

I also love this Laughing Lola collection – it’s one that you receive in your goodie box when you sign up as a CTMH Consultant, but also available now in Workshop on the Go kits – sincerely enjoy those quick packs put together as much as I LOVE coordinating and putting things together – its nice to grab the giant bag and have what I need there.

My true love those is just those CTMH Cartridges – Artbooking and Artiste just stole my heart ever since I first received them in the mail and my Cricut friends who still love creating so much with their die-cutters I couldn’t recommend these cartridges more!  AND If you really want to get a special discount on these cartridges let me know – I can show ya how!

    Megan, so glad to see you are hooked up with CTMH! After all of these years, I continue to be impressed with the quality of their products and their innovation. Can you please comment on your Cricut settings when you cut the different shapes out? I do think that CTMH paper cuts better than any other on the Cricut, but I am wondering what settings you use to cut them and if you ever need to change settings based on the shape you’re cutting (like I have found I need to do with other designer papers!). Thanks, and great pics!!

    I loved your card,but I have the E2 and it is much harder (for me anyway) to figure out how to set the machine where you want to start cutting. I have noticed that most people have gone back to their EXPRESSION .What can be done when you don’t have that option?

    • Sandy Redding

      Leah, I use the Cricut Craft Room almost all of the time now as you can put your design ont the screen right where you want it and that is where it will cut. Took a little bit of measuring to be sure your paper is on the correct inch markers on screen to match where your paper is on the mat but it has been wonderful for using scrap pieces.Sandy

    Count me in also – I would totally love that cartridge, as well as any of the cartridges CTMH has. They all look so awesome but my budget doesn’t allow it.

  • Angela

    I love the look of the Close to My Heart cartridges. I also love my Gypsy. Can they be used together? If so, how do you set them up so they would cut out at the correct size needed for the stamps?

  • Kris

    OMG, Benson is growing up so fast!!! That smile of his is going to break hearts! TFS your field trip and the great card. I love all 3 of the CTMH Cricut cartridges, but the overlays on Artbooking are really outstanding! Thanks, Megan Elizabeth!

    Great card Megan! I would love to own the Artbooking Cartridge at a special discount. Please let me know how I can obtain it. Thanks you for sharing your many talents with us.

    Thanks for the great tutorial the tips on sizing were very helpful. I have the Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges and simply love them. How do we get a discount on the Artbooking cartridge?

  • Irene Ryther

    Thank you for the demonstration. I really love the Close to My Heart Cartridges. I
    have all three of them and use them most of all. In fact, we are going to
    Arizona for the winter, and I may just take these cartridges and leave the rest at
    home since we are limited on space. Enjoy seeing the pictures you took. He is
    a darling little boy and has a very cute smile. Hope you will be able to keep giving us
    such wonderful information.

  • Phyllis Wilson

    Would love to have the CTMH Cricut cartridges but just can’t afford them now. Waiting to hear how I can get the discount.
    Thanks so much.

  • Lindsay

    I am interested in the Artbooking or Artiste cartridge. The little I have seen with them, I like them. Not sure on spending $100 for a cartridge. Interested in how we might could get a discount.
