CTMHTX Convention recap- Day 2

Markers, Inks, Papers oh my!

Cover of the new Idea book

Workshops on the go

There are now 13 WOTG's. 8 of them are for scrapbooking, 2 are aimed at home decor, and 2 for card making.


New cricut cartridge is coming out! It is called Artiste. It has over 700 images with new layers, boxes, and projects. This includes things like cupcake wrappers and pinwheels.
 It coordinates with the Halloween WOTG (workshop on the go) to do party favors/decorating for a party of 8. 
The cartridge comes with coordinating diecuts and stamp sets, making it a $125 value for $99!

This is a  look at the new cartridge and the Halloween workshop on the go that is themed with the cartridge.


Earlier this year it was announced that our markers would be retiring.The markers are new and improved in the new Idea book, and are alcohol based and still have dual tips.


There are 6 not 4 new colors coming out and here are the names: saddle, whisper, slate, ruby, champagne, cashmere.
They are neutral colors, and look great.
24 colors are retiring, putting the number of colors at 42.

There will now also be pigment inks available in a mini pad.

Studio J

There is a express collection for the busy person! These are pre-made pages in different themes. All you have to do is put in your photos and journaling. 60 different layouts and 20 new patterns.

Other great things

  • A new double scrubber for cleaning stamps that is designed to get both our current water based inks and pigment based inks.

  • New organizing containers

  • 53 new accessories
the new markers and the new spool to create with.

Retiring items

With all these colors retiring I would suggest if you like the color, buy the re-inker for it before it's gone!( I would like to note that from some it has been said that it was never said that these are going away permanently. So they may perhaps one day return. However they will not be in the next idea book, which does put them on the retirement list.) Retired stamps have a tenancy to return several idea books later, so you may see revamped versions of these colors later as they are making the hues better and keeping what is in style.

Below are the following colors that are leaving:

Grey wool
Grey Flannel
Vanilla Cream
Brown Bag
Baby pink
Key Lime
Heavenly Blue
Lilac Mist
Holiday Red
Sunny Yellow
Dutch blue
Vineyard berry
Garden Green
Spring Iris
Pansy Purple

Current papers that will still be around
