Cricut Cartridges..My Complete List

Below is a list of all the Cricut cartridges that I currently own...
New cartridges are being added all the time.
As you all know craft supplies can be quite expensive especially these cartridges
so finding amazing deals is how I save money. I NEVER spend more then $15.00 on a Cricut cartridge, even if it is a brand new release or even a retired cartridge. There is one place that is my go to place when purchasing cartridges and if you are interested in learning how I save so much money leave me a comment and I will reveal my secret shopping spot. Well it's not a secret per se' but you know what I mean! <wink> Honestly I cannot tell you how many times I have bought a brand new cartridge and literally spent less then $5.00 and every single one was brand spanking new still in the clam shell. Sounds impossible doesn't it? Well I am here to tell you that it is not impossible. Not at all!

Have you all wondered what a Cricut cartridge looks like on the inside? I know that I have wondered that myself so I found a photo that shows what is going on inside...
Pretty neat...right??
I hope you all found this as interesting as I did!
Thank you for stopping by today and if you would like to know how I save money when purchasing these cartridges leave me a comment below. How do you save money when buying cartridges or craft supplies? For me it is alot of fun to save money when  purchasing a cartridge,  great craft supplies, or anything actually, and use that saved money on something else!

My Top 4 Favorite Tools

So, my most favorite tools besides the Cricut and Gypsy are #1...My Pink ATG Gun...#2...My Martha Stewart Scoring Board (I also have the Scor-Pal but do not like it nearly as much) #3...My Xyron Sticker Maker..#4...My Cricut Cutter. There you have it..these are my most favorite go to tools. If you want to add one more it would be my Zig Two-Way Glue Pen. What are your favorites?

Here is a link to my you tube video showing some of my cards live. You will be able to see some of them better here. Enjoy!

My Pink ATG Gun..

This is my new Pink ATG Gun!! I added some Black & Creme Polka Dotted Paper from Die Cuts With A View La Creme Stack Pack to spice it up a bit. It makes it so much cuter and plus, I don't have to look at the spool of tape when I use it. All I did was trace around the outside and cut to fit. Very simple yet so cute.

A Child's Year Wagon Card

So this morning I was looking to make another card but did not know what I wanted to make. I decided to use my A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge yet again. This is my favorite cartridge so far. It has so many images of so many different things. Too cute! This is how to make this simple yet adorable card.

Your finished card size will be: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
If you take a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of black cardstock and cut it down the middle you will have enough for 2 cards. This card opens like a book, from left to right.

This image is on page 45 in your handbook.
I cut out the image at 2 1/2" in black and the shadow at 2 1/2" in white cardstock

The red mat is cut to size 4' X 5 1/4". One of my tips is to cut your mats 1/4" smaller then your card or other mats.

I then embossed the red mat using my Cuttlebug. I chose the Stars embossing folder.

The black polka dot paper is from Die Cuts With A View and is cut at size 1 1/2" x 4".

I used black ribbon and adhered it to the black polka dot paper then adhered the polka dot paper to the red mat. After that is when I taped my red mat to my card. Easy peasy!

The little Cherish tag was in my stash from along time ago. It is from Elements by Creativity Inc.
There were 4 sayings in the pack. Love, Celebrate, Cherish & Friend. I chose Cherish & Friend for my 2 cards. Another tip is when I make a card I always make 2 at a time. It is just easier to cut everything out at the same time and put them together at the same time. Then I have 2 cards to use whenever.

Well, that's it! This was a very simple card to make. It only took me about 20 minutes from start to finish to make the 2 cards.

Materials used:

Black Cardstock
Red Cardstock
White Cardstock
Black and Cream Polka Dot Paper
A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge
Cuttlebug & Stars Embossing Folder
Black Ribbon
Cherish Clear Acrylic Tag
