This document has been a labour of time, 20 pages and growing! I've been watching a LOT of YouTube, and internet surfing, and had too many ideas rattling around in my head. Immediately I scratch down some ideas on slips of paper, to be over-run with papers. It was driving me crazy the potential creative possibilities Close to my Heart company created with their 3 versatile exclusive Cricut cartridges: Art Philosophy, Artiste, and ArtBooking. And, as of August 2014 a fourth cartridge, "Artfully Sent." My cartridge handbooks are a mess of overflowing notes, those booklets are not very big. As a mental exercise in organization and training out Mommy-brain-fuzzy-thinking I set to work organizing all my bits & bobs of information into a Word document, it just made sense. No one on the internet seems to have this compilation of information, or thought to create such a monster information cashe. I have let it loose to a few friends to proofread and critique. Everyone is so busy that I have to think no news is good news right? I have thought long and hard about this document, how to compile it, how to arrange it, how to share it without offending anyone or infringing. So of course, being not very, computer smart, I can't even get it to post as a downloadable document for you, sorry about that. Maybe one day I will have that figured out. I have split it up into 4 blog posts to get it out there to everyone. I will probably create a 5th post for the fourth cartridge, eventually. Feel free to copy & paste for your own personal use.
I will strive to update this document as I am able. If you find MORE ideas to add, or corrections, please do add them to the comments in this post so I can add them in with future updates.
