Not sure which cartridge to start with?Cricut Collection Collage

There are now four amazing Cricut Collections to choose from.  Each one comes with a stamp set (a $60 value) that matches shapes found on the cartridge.  Art Philosophy, Artiste and Artbooking all come with dimensional elements.  Artfully sent comes with a 24-pack of White Daisy cardstock.  Each cartridge is PACKED with over 700 different images/shapes and a font exclusive to each collection.  These are the largest cartridges that Cricut makes.  Also, remember many of the shapes on these cartridges coordinate with other stamp sets from Close to My Heart.  (click on the name of any of the cartridges to be taken directly to it on my site)


  • ART PHILOSOPHY is more for the all-in-one crafter. The shapes on this cartridge are more general in design and don’t scream one specific theme making this a good all purpose cartridge for scrapbooking, card making and paper crafting. (Cricut Art Philosophy PDF)
  • ARTISTE is more project based.  It includes more 3D shapes, mini albums and layered projects.  Everything is color coordinated and it also includes an assembly guide to make putting your project together a breeze. (Cricut Artiste PDF)
  • ARTBOOKING is all about scrapbooking and mini albums.  This cartridge has everything you need for coordinating layouts including overlays, titles, photo mats, etc. all cut proportionately to each other to fit on a 12×12 layout.  It also includes 10 mini album themes each with a recommended finished album size. (Cricut Artbooking PDF)
  • ARTFULLY SENT is the newest addition to the Cricut Collections and is designed with the card maker in mind. This cartridge features more than 25 different themes and 5 different card formats including dynamic interactive designs it has a card for any and all occasions. Card styles include pop-ups, scenes, sentiments, sleeves and pocket cards (commonly used for pocket style scrapbooking (Cricut Artfully Sent PDF)

Each of these cartridges are amazing and just because it is geared toward a specific style of crafting does not mean it is limited to that.  Many of the elements on each cartridge are very versatile in any crafting project.  For example, the beautiful butterfly on Artiste may be perfect for your card to mom or a sentiment on the Artfully Sent cartridge would be a great title on a scrapbook page.

Don’t miss out on this never before offered ONE DAY sale today.  Make sure you share the news about this sale with all your friends and family members and head on over to my website at and start shopping and saving today.

Thank you for your continued support and a VERY happy Cyber Monday!  Till next time. . .
