I’ve been creating with something super fun and new, the Close To My Heart Flower Market Cricut Cartridge. With 700 new designs, including two new fonts, I am finding so many possibilities for papercrafting fun. There are lots and lots of fabulous flowers, everything you could imagine putting flowers in, and oodles of die-cut shapes that have nothing to do with flowers at all. (Wait until you see the typewriter.)
As I sat down to experiment with this new cartridge, I could not resist making a little red wagon first. It’s fabulous, and I just had to share it with you. Here’s a layout I designed using the wagon, a clay pot, and some flowers. It’s a super simple composition with a fabulous splash of color and shapes from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge Collection.
Working with this new cartridge has been great. The handbook is easy to read and shows you all the parts and pieces you need for each die-cut. This wagon can be found on page 3 of the handbook and looks like this.
The layering pieces are all sized and scaled to make cutting simple. For example, I wanted a wagon that would be 5-inches tall (that includes the handle) for my layout. I set my Cricut machine to 5-inches and left it at 5-inches while cutting each layer. The machine automatically cuts each layering piece to the right size so the pieces all fit together. For the wagon on my layout, I cut the base out of White Daisy Cardstock, the first layer out of Black Cardstock, and the top layer out of Poppy Cardstock.
Then you just glue them together, one layer at a time.
So cute and so easy, right? The flowers and the pots worked the same way.
Now you might be wondering about all of the fantastic bright, bold colors you see on these pages. Several of the papers I used for this layout are brand new Close To My Heart colors. There are actually seven new colors in the Close To My Heart Adventure color group, and the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge Collection comes with a combo package of the Adventure Cardstock. That means you get two sheets of each color and 20 sheets of cardstock all together. There are also three exclusive stamp sets that come with the collection, making it a really great bundle of creative goodness.
You can get all of that beautiful paper, all three stamp sets, and the new Flower Market Cricut Cartridge for just $99.
Now if you are a digit Cricut crafter, there is also an option to purchase the Flower Market Cricut Collection in a digital format for only $79. You still get all of the paper and stamp sets, but instead of a physical cartridge, you have an online code to access all 700 designs online. This is perfect if you use a Cricut Explore machine.
Well, I will be sharing many more projects down the road that feature more great designs from this cartridge. It truly does have die-cut shapes to take you through all of the seasons of life and the seasons of the year.
