New Cricut Artbooking Cartridge Collection from Close to My Heart

I received my preview copy of the new Close to My Heart exclusive Cricut cartridge called Artbooking, and have been playing around with some of the features.  So far I am loving this cartridge!  It is really easy to create super cute 2 page layouts using one key.  The cartridge has 700 images, so there is so much to use in my scrapbooks, on cards, and in my home decor items.  (That is a whole new area I am venturing into!)
Here is what the bundle looks like:
It includes the cartridge with case & user manual, 3 stamp sets that have images that fit perfectly on the cuts, and 3 sheets of chipboard dimensional elements that also coordinate with the Cricut cuts. Cost of the stamps & chipboard is $68.70 when purchased separately, so that means this fabulous cartridge (with 700!!!! images) if it could be purchased separately would only be $30.30!  With waaayyy more images than "normal" Cricut cartridges, Close to My Heart shows again why they are leaders in the papercrafting industry.  I love this company. 

The cartridge will cut 10 mini-albums, and 30 2-page layouts with embellishments for each.  They will be complete after you cut and put them together.  Just add your photos.  How simple is that!

I will be posting some of my artwork samples as I finish them, so check back.
