Each key features its own unique theme, so you’ll find a wide variety of choices within this extensive 700-image package, from maritime adventures and camping trips to newborn celebrations and holiday parties—and then some! In addition, the cartridge’s unique font will add visual spice to any project you create.

For those of you who own a Cricut Explore or Cricut Explore Air you can purchase the digital version for $79.  Instead of a physical cartridge, this version of the Artistry collection includes a card with a digital activation code for using the cartridge’s images with Cricut® Explore™ and Cricut® Explore Air™.

So lets get to the artwork….

Artistry ~ Fox ~ CatScrapbooking.comI love foxes and was so excited to see this cartridge had a cute on on page 14, I cut him at 2.4″ high.   The trees I cut at 3.33″ high; are also on page 14.  I cut the trees twice once in Saddle and once in Topiary. The hugs & kisses and banner are on page 23 and were cut at .72″ high.  The background was created using my All Purpose mat, ink pads, spray pens and CTMH Stamp cleaner.  I used New England Ivy, Topiary and Sweet Leaf for the greens; Saddle for the brown and Glacier for the sky.  You can check out a great how to for type of background on Close to My Heart’s blog ~ Make it from Your Heart.

Happy Crafting!
