Guess who's now a Cricut Affiliate?

Shop new arrivals from Cricut!

I am so excited to share such wonderful news with you! Check out what's new at Cricut

So, not only was I a part of the 250 attendees of bloggers, influencers and consumers that were invited to such an exclusive event, but after the huge announcement of the new Cricut Maker, the CEO, Ashish Arora, told all of us during the closing ceremonies that we would ALL get a FREE Cricut Maker delivered to our home before in-store availability!

When he said that, I almost lost my mind! The room started spinning, I had happy tears running down my cheeks, and I was doing a happy dance! I felt like I was going to pass out from excitement! Is that even a thing? Can you imagine?

So, once my Cricut arrived, I immediately began creating several projects... oh yes! I need to post those! (you've gotten a few sneak peeks if you follow me @ScarletteDesigns on Instagram or if you're a part of my VIP Create & Craft with Elise Facebook Group)

Well, I had to share the news with you. Make sure to follow my blog because you know I share Friday Freebies, and it's usually Cricut Design Space cut files of something that I've created or currently working on. All links on my blog contain trusted affiliate links, and I receive a small portion from your purchase. So, just like when you purchase from my Close To My Heart online store, now, whatever you decide to purchase from clicking a link on my blog to any Cricut product, I will receive a small percentage!

I appreciate you taking the time to share in my excitement!

Don't forget, Close To My Heart has exclusive Cricut Cartridge Collections available! Each collection contains over 700 images! Take a look at our newest collection, "You Are Here" (seen below)

I hope you've enjoyed my current blog post! More to come, so stay tuned!

Cricut Mountain Make-A-Thon New "MAKER"

The new Cricut Maker, Available starting Aug 20th
(Save the Date for Oct 3rd to get yours on HSN)

Are you a Cricut Lover? Do you love to make things with your Cricut, be it papercrafting projects, DIY home décor items, party planning decorations, vinyl crafting on t-shirts or mugs/cups?

Well, I just got back from Salt Lake City, Utah! Only a handful of Makers were invited to this special event where they did the big unveiling on the new Cricut Maker, the Cricut Easy Press, and the Cricut BrightPad (of which if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen me using the BrightPad to make my Cricut "Poodle" Skirt)

Me and Kylie just before the 50's Theme party and Sock Hop!

Yep! I made that one! :)  A little something special for the event.

So, what's the big deal with the new Cricut Maker?

  • It cuts materials such as Leather, Balsa Wood, Felt, Matteboard, over 100 different fabrics (up to 2.3mm thick!)
  • Cricut and Simplicity partnered together so now you can draw patterns and cut them out with one machine! No more pinning and handcutting!
  • Rotary Blade allows for fabric cutting with ease, and the Knife Blade (due out Oct 2017) knows the exact pressure for different materials depths! So, basically you'll use the blade for the right material, select your material in Design Space 3, and pretty much "Set it and Forget it!" (not really, but I like to call it "Idiot Proof" only because I was able to cut fabric for my cosmetic bag without having to figure out how thick my material/fabric was and it automatically determines how many passes/cuts and how much pressure to apply! YAY!)
  • There is a slot to put your tablet or phone AND it comes with a charging slot/plug so you can connect your electronic device and use Design Space without your device losing its charge before you finish your project!
  • Many, many more features!

And, bonus? No matter what you use your Cricut for, I love the fact that Cricut and Close To My Heart have a wonderful relationship, and honestly, that was the other reason I decided to join CTMH! Of course the unique high quality clear MyAcrylix™ Stamps, but the fact that we carry Exclusive Cricut cartridges and digital collections!

Thank you for joining me and what's coming soon!

Creatively Yours,
