Coming to you August 1, 2012!

Earlier this month I was in Dallas, TX for the annual CTMH Convention. It was my first year going to this event and the most fun I've had in years! We learned about all the new products that will be available August 1st and some great new techniques. The color palette has condensed from 60 colors to 40 with 6 new colors Saddle, Slate, Whisper, Cashmere, Champagne, and Ruby. In addition to our already awesome ink pads we now have pigment based inks that offer intensely vibrant color and are specially formulated for projects that will be out in the open, like home décor projects. That’s because pigment ink is super colorfast and light safe. It’s one of the best archival solutions around. You’ll get a stacked tower of 10 colors for just $19.95. We have new marker sets! That's right, 2 markers in each set. One is the color that matches the ink pad and the other is either a shade lighter or a shade darker. They have alcohol-based ink for better blending and smoother color. We even offer a new alcohol blending pen to help you blend with ease. Also, Studio J memberships are going away and everyone now has access to all the fabulous patterns and kits for free! Instead of a 2 page layout costing $13.00 and only getting jpg's with purchase of layouts you now pay only $6.95 for a 2 page layout with a free jpg or you can purchase jpg's stand alone for $2.95 each. A jpg includes one 2 page layout. Thats not all though... Studio J has an awesome new addition—the new Studio J Express Collections! These allow you to create 10 professional-looking, themed layouts faster than ever—just add your photos, journaling, and you’re done! We now have a total of 13 different Workshops on the Go kits! We have our core of eight great scrapbooking kits, plus we’re introducing two cardmaking Workshops on the Go kits and our first-ever home décor kits—a scroll album and an advent calendar. And what was that last Workshops on the Go kit? It’s called the Spellbound Cricut® kit and is an entire Halloween party complete with papers and embellishments that works hand-in-hand with the new Artiste cartridge! Yes, another cricut cartridge. With 700 images, the cartridge features themed projects, interactive cards, awards, and more. From robots and spooks to weddings and valentines, your cupcake liners, invitations, and party favors will coordinate and come quickly together for any celebration! Cutting and assembling the numerous 3D items is a snap using the project reference chart and separate, step-by-step assembly booklet. The Cricut Artiste collection comes with three coordinating exclusive stamp sets and three Dimensional Elements 12" by 9" sheets that will help your artwork come to life!
