Cartridge Showcase: Artiste Bundle

Good morning crafty friends,
Today my showcase is on the new Cricut Artiste Bundle from Close To My Heart. I have recently become a Close To My Heart Consultant and got my hands on this new bundle. It is a terrific value for what you get. I know most of us are used to paying around 30 to 35 for a new cartridge, so the $99 price tag seems a bit steep.  But it really isn’t when you consider what you get. You get the following:
CricutArtiste
* Cricut Cartridge: The cartridge is jammed packed with a great variety of cuts including some fantastic 3-D cuts too!
* 3 D-Size Stamp Sets which correspond with several of the cuts on the cart
* 3 Sheets of Chipboard Elements that Correspond with Each Stamp Set!!!!
* Plus!!!! The Cartridge comes with 2 books, one with assembly instructions for the 3-D projects!!!

Okay, now on to my projects!
