Calling all those who are CRAZY FOR CRICUT!!!  This is for you!

Close to My Heart has taken it to a whole new level! We are the first to come out with a Cricut Cartridge that pairs with clear acrylic stamps and dimensional chipboard. Simply plug the cartridge into your Cricut®* Personal Electronic Cutter machine and you’re ready to cut any of the 700 shapes, ranging from elegant rosettes and lace to trendy gift boxes and banners! You’ll also receive three stamp sets as well as three sets of 9" × 12" Dimensional Elements that work in tandem with the cartridge. On top of that, numerous My Acrylix stamp sets in our new Idea Book pair wonderfully with images on the Cricut® cartridge. They made it SOOO easy…if you look closely at the sets you’ll see that they’ve put lines around the images that coordinate and marked the size setting right on the acetate sheet.

The chipboard sheets are available to purchase separately.  However, the 3 Acrylix stamps sets are only available with this cartridge bundle.

The bag, star, circle and tickets were all cut on the Cricut. Scissors were only required to cut the ribbon!
