    I absolutely love my Art Philosophy cartridge that I purchased from Melanie!! Thanks for showing us how to use the 12 x 24 mat – that is something I’ve not used before with my Expression.

    I love My Creative Time Stamps & Dies – they are so cute.

    Love the color of ink you used….can’t wait to purchase some!! šŸ™‚

    What a beautiful card! I love the demo with the 12×24 mat. I have them but haven’t used them yet. Maybe now I will give them a try. That would certainly save time!

    Still looking forward to the Ink Edgerz! I want to make sure I get them before they sell out, which I’m sure they will do quickly!!!

    Loved the video as always, I don’t have the Art Philosophy cartridge as of yet but makes me want to check it out further. Hope you had a great birthday. Enjoy the moment.

    I loved the tutorial and as always you make it so easy to understand. I don’t have that cartridge but think I need it now. I have a 12 x 24 mat that is just collecting dust, now I can use it. Thank Megan and Happy Birthday!!

    Hi Meg and Ladies,
    I’m new to scrapbooking and am in the market for a cricut. What r the top 5 cartridges that u use? I’ve also never heard of close to my heart, looks like I need to find a party to attend in GA to check it out.
    Thank u Megan for all your tips and tricks. It was very helpful for my first trip to Archivers to pick up the basics šŸ™‚

    Pretty card! If I have many cut-outs for a project and I need two sheets of card stock to accomplish it, that’s when the 12 by 24 mat comes out.

    Way to go with demoing the Cricut “Art Philosophy” Cartridge from Close To My Heart. The Art Philosophy cart comes with 3 stamp sets and three chip board sets that coordinate perfectly together. I have used it more than any other cartridge. Such a cute card and so easy. I have made banners, cards, many wonderful layouts, and other 3-D deco with my AP and stamps from Close to my Heart. Thanks Megan. If anyone wants to know more or how to get the Art Philosophy with the combo pack at 1/2 the price. Contact me through my blog at or email me at Have a wonderful memorial weekend now that Tuesday is nearing an end and Hump day is just moments away.

    Hi! I love using my 12 by 24 mat. This is the one that I could buy at Walmart after I bought my cricut second hand and i love it. I can lay out my main design, my acessories and my phrase and then load it and cut it. I don’t have to keep taking my mat out so it saves me time. Loved the card and i love the CTMH cart. I have it and use it lots.

    Howdy Megan,

    Sweet star card … I will be having to check out this cartridge more! Tomorrow nite I will be learning more on the Wild Card! I have been in this city a year this month … it is still learning what stores have what and where! I was very spoiled in the city prior to this one with over 2 million people vs under 50 K here. All well, I am having learning experience from you and here … Thank you, Shelly

    I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday and they were out of the 12 x 12 mats and I saw your video about using a 12 x 24 mat and you said you could cut them in half–what would you recommend to use to cut the mat with?

  • BethAnn

    Hi Megan! Terrific idea for the star card! I have a couple of the spray inks, and never sure how to use them. I will be giving them a try now! I love the AP cartridge set , that I also bought from Melanie last fall. The CTMH stamps are really great to use, and you are right about the cartridge being so versatile. If anyone is on the fence about getting this one, take the leap and buy it! Have a great weekend, and thank you for all the wonderful ideas that you provide. BethAnn M.
