Cricut Artiste Lucy Purse

darling purse made with the new Cricut Artiste Collection by Close To My
Heart. I have yet to count how many 3-D projects there are on the Artiste cartridge. You can view the full booklet here.  The Artiste cartridge features 700 images, the same amount of images found on the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Before the Art Philosophy cartridge, I owned a vast number of cartridges…the Art Philosophy cart rarely left my Cricut.  Until now, the release of the Artiste Collection has finally bumped the Art Philosophy cartridge from my machine.  Both cartridges are unique and are must haves for your Cricut collection.  Here is a close up of my bling-

I placed a velcro closure on my purse tab, so that it can be opened and closed.  My purse was created with the Lucy Paper Collection.  The Lucy line of paper products will be retiring 7/31/2012.  If you love the line, you need to order prior to 7/31/12.  Here is another view of the purse, just because I could not get a perfect photo tonight!

My purse was cut at 5″ on my Cricut Expressions machine.  The cartridge cuts all the score lines for you.  A book of detailed assembly directions is included with the cartridge…easy step by step photos on how to assembly the 3-D projects.  Easy Peasy.  I added a little trim to the bottom of my purse and then added some pom poms.  This purse also has the option of adding a pocket to the front, which is not shown here.
