My favorit procduct from Close To My Heart :Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

I have been using my Cricut Art Philosopy cartridge so much lately to cut cards and embellishments. What I love about this cartridge  is that it is versatile, I can cut basic shapes, letters, 3-D items, flowers etc.This card was entirely cut with the Cricut and the Art Philosopy cartridge.

Tips: Did you know you can use our Bounding Memories Glue to revive your Cricut cutting mat?

When my Cricut cutting mat is not sticky enough to hold the cardstock in place, I clean it with a cleaner (I used Lysol for kitchen) and a microfiber cloth. Once it is dry I apply a thin coat of Bonding Memories Glue. I let it dry very well so it become a temporary bond. The first few times you use it it will be very sticky so do not put too much pressure on your cardstock.

Have a great day!
