It’s Here! Update Artisan & Use CM Content!


Click on the link in Artisan to download the upgraded version!


This is the prettiest thing I've seen in a while!


If you encounter an error when trying to install the upgrade (I did - most are, I think) just uninstall Artisan then install the upgrade.

My activation codes didn’t transfer over with my content.  Here’s the easiest way I’ve found to bring those in. 

If you open the text file of codes into a spreadsheet you can do this much easier. I still get a ":" at the end of some of my activation codes that needs to be deleted but that's easier than deleting the whole kit description. Here's how to import a text file into Excel. http://office.microsoft.com/...

Be sure to tell your computer to open a text file (select "text files" from the dropdown menu


Choose the "fixed width" option then click finish. Your codes will be in one column and the description in another. You can then copy & paste the codes into Artisan. Delete the : at the end first if that came over with the activation code.


There has been quite the fuss made from many well connected to CM about switching over to Panstoria. It seems that now that these programs are out of CMs hands certain people seem to think the program isn't as good as they had said it was just a short time ago. I disagree - and will add that it's even better now! Sadly, this attitude is nothing new - we were warned not to be swayed by "shiny objects" some time ago. The CEO of Panstoria ironically gave this freebie and I'm happy to share it with you!! It's the 'Shiny Objects' kit, complete with twelve shiny objects and one shiny (silver glitter) alpha set. Enjoy, and feel free to share the link

Don’t have Artisan yet?  Click here to purchase it!  It's like SBC+ only better!! Artisan has fantastic photo editing tools within the program and you’ll be able to upload directly to Panstoria’s Print Shop soon!!

Remember – SBC+ and MM is not being supported by CM any longer and Panstoria will only support them until the end of this year. 

You can get more information about why you should switch from SBC+ & MM to Artisan & Historian in this post.
