Cricut Cartridges Still Available for Rental

When the doors of My Creative Clubhouse were open in downtown West Bend, I offered the over 125 Cricut cartridges I had for rental.  I just wanted you all to be aware that this service is still available to you all. 

The cost of rental is $5 per 24 hour period. If you are interested, you may contact me at (414) 640-0412 or by email As I do not have a credit card service anymore, you may pay by cash or through paypal services.

Please let me know if you are looking for any particular cartridge to rent. Happy creating!

As some of you know, I have been a busy girl playing nursing student, Certified Nursing Assistant at Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls, wife, has been a crazy ride.  As this fall approaches, I am extremely excited to be entering the core nursing program at Moraine Park Technical College in West Bend. And, along with starting the new semester, I will be cutting back my hours at the hospital from 40 hours per week to 20 hours.
What I hope to accomplish with this cut back of hours is much more time to study the intense material that I will be learning, AND getting back into some creative time.  I am seriously suffering from creative withdrawal.  Since most of my toys from My Creative Clubhouse are in storage, I need to use what I have, and I cannot wait to get started!  First, I have to clean out our spare bedroom nd make it into my study/craft room! I will be working hard on that before school starts up on August 19th!
Along with the release of the new 2013 Autumn/Winter Idea Book, you will be seeing some great videos. Close to My Heart has released an exclusive new Cricut cartridge call "Artbooking".  I will be posting more information about that soon.
In the meantime, I would like to share a video on the popular Ombre technique with you. I hope you will enjoy this fun video.

If you are interested in purchasing these, or any other Close to My Heart products, you may contact me directly at (414) 640-0412 or email me at  If you would prefer the convenience of online shopping 24/7, please visit my site at to browse the online Idea Book, the clearance items, or just find a little inspiration.

If you would like to receive a hard copy of the most current Idea Book, you may contact me as stated above.

I look forward to sharing some new and exciting products and creations with all of you!
