I have been asked by my good friend, Joy Tracey, to do a review on the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and bundle that you can get exclusively through Close to My Heart. I have only had a little bit to play with it but so far I have LOVED it!! This cartridge has absolutely everything you can think of all wrapped up in one cartridge! That alone is worth purchasing. They are doing a special promotion for the month of September so be sure to click on all the links below!
This is what Joy had to say about the cartridge...
"Here are some quick facts and info about the Artbooking cartridge:
1) What I most like about the cartridge: I like that it has 10 themed mini-books in various sizes with inter-changeable pages. Also, the cartridge is chock full of layouts that you can create by just setting the dial at one size and then all the related elements (titles, borders, photo mats, overlays, etc.) all cut out at the appropriate proportional sizes. Making a layout is a snap!
2) Top 3 features this cartridge has:
a) 10 themed mini-albums with one touch sizing
b) beautiful, thematic overlays that can be used on layouts, card, mini-albums, and as masks, too! Great for home decor.
c) Easy layouts ready to cut in 15 different layout themes, including holidays, baby, wedding, love, sports, just because, etc.
3) Here are some unique projects I have made:
Glittery background to Christmas card using packing tape and overlay: http://www.

Overlays create a graphic look in 2 different color combos for Christmas:
Different colors to the overlay background - using Cricut Craft Room (I have one that uses hand piecing also):

Here is a video I made that may help you with the sizing on this cartridge because as soon as you aren't making what's in the upper left corner, it can be hard to get the sizing correct: http://youtu.be/dMdqER4g7Xs
