Cricut Artbooking and Artiste birthday box

Hello, friends!

Before I start blabbing about today's project, I want to announce the winners of last month August specials!

Cricut machine: Aida Pampo

Ink pads plus caddy: Joan Peters

All 6 Stamp of the Month sets: Kathy Unger

I will be emailing you all today giving you shipping details! Congratulations! Thank you all very much for your continued patronage! I have the best customers and followers of any blogger out there and YOU ARE APPRECIATED! You guys make all of the hard work so worth it! I love you all!

Now lets talk paper crafting! Today's project is a project I made using the Artbooking and Artiste cartridges. It is for today's bitten by the bug challenge which called for something made using a 3D box from any cartridge. This box is from Artiste and is one of my favorites. It is super simple to assemble and just looks great!

Just a reminder: if a word is highlighted you can click on it and it will take you to that item on my website.
I used Lagoon, Creme Brule, Sorbet, Smoothie, and White Daisy CTMH cardstock.
The stamping done on the sides is done using one of the stamp sets that come with the Artbooking cartridge.
This week's prize is the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland cartridge! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 8th.
To win:
1) Follow this blog or subscribe via email.
2) Leave a comment under one or all posts this week for maximum chances. See HERE if you don't know how to leave a comment.




If you order the Artbooking cartridge in the month of September you qualify to get four extra stamp sets! That's right four! Let me explain, any order over $50 entitles you to get a limited edition triple stamp set for only $10 and the stamp of the month for only $5.

Here is how it breaks down:


- Artbooking Bundle (includes cartridge, 3 coordinating stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard A $125 retail value) for $99
 

- Stamp of the month (a $17.95 retail value) for $5

- Triple Stamp set ( a $47.90 retail value) for $10


That is $190.85 worth of things for only $114! A total savings of $75.85! For $114 you get a cricut cartridge, 7 stamp sets, and 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard! This is the best deal there is going to be all year! Get your's today!

 ADDED BONUS: The first 20 people who order in September get an additional stamp set from me!
