Tree box made using the NEW Artiste cartridge PLUS a video!

Hello, friends!

*caution long post. Also, the first part of this post and today's Everyday Cricut post look the same, but scroll down. I have two different projects posted.* 

Today is the day! Now like I said yesterday, you cannot order the cartridge until 9 AM (MDT). I will add an update to this post as soon as it is live. Also, I will be updating my facebook fan page as soon as I know it is live. If you have any questions please email me at Do not leave questions in the comment section.

*edited to add: the cartridge is on the website and can be ordered. Here is the link ==>Artiste

Remember that if you order through me during the month of August, I will enter you into a contest to win a brand new E2 Cricut machine with purple endcaps!

I have a project made using the Cricut Artiste cartridge today as well as a video showing what is in the bundle. Here is the video:

Here are the pictures of the things included:

Awards coordinating chipboard
Quotes coordinating chipboard

Album pages coordinating chipboard

Birthday coordinating stamp set

Kudos coordinating stamp set

Word Balloons coordinating stamp set.
Today's post is a little early (please don't throw things at me ;-)), so just file this one away for later. This little Christmas tree treat box is just the cutest thing! It is perfect for stockings or children's parties. You could even use it to wrap small gifts.

The box is made using the new paper line called Pear and Partridge.
I used sparkle flourishes from Close To My Heart just to add a little bit of bling.
I used chipboard that coordinates with the Artiste cartridge for my tag. Then stamped it using a stamp set called Perfect Fit -Holidays. It is a stamp set that coordinates with both the Art Philosophy cartridge and the Artiste cartridge.
Now if you are interested in the fantastic Artiste cartridge and/or the current Close To My Heart promotions you have come to the right place!

To break it all down...

Between August 15-31, get your Cricut Artiste cartridge for $99.00. The Cricut Artiste bundle includes:

    * Cricut Artiste (suggested retail price of $ 59.99), Three Stamp Sets (retail value of $17.95 each), & Three Dimensional Element chipboard sets (retail value of $4.95 each). That is a total recommended retail price of $128.69 for the much lower price of $99!

- Because you spent over $50, you can now purchase the August Stamp of the Month for $5.00 a value of $17.95!

YOU SAVE ==> $42.64

I really like both boxes. They are absolutely adorable.
Christmas will be here very soon too!
I think the pink box is simply perfect for when friends have a birthday and you add a gift card! Super cute.
