Funny Donna! I'm afraid Sandra's dh would get tired of me and my dh would get tired of waiting on me. So, that leaves only one other option.....get a Cricut.

sure thing. thanks for running this! Juanita and I scrap together almost daily, and most of the time my cricut is running too!

tip i learned today: with carta bella papers, they are quite thick, run your cricut, unload the mat, reload mat, and repeat last. sometimes the cut doesn't go all the way through on my create on max pressure!

On the Cricut Expression you can also use "multicut", it will repeat the same cut without having to unload and reload mat

Hi Dawn, welcome! All tips and hints are welcome.
I too used a create for several years, I still have it but it is beginning to gather dust.... If you don't use Cricut Craft Room to do your cutting, then an easier method of getting the mat to cut in the exact same spot it to click on load instead of unload at the end of the cutting cycle. That way the mat will go back to the beginning and when you select cut, it will go over the same lines. I don't know about you, but I always had a tendency to miss the original cutting line when I unloaded then reloaded my mat. I do know how frustrating it can be to have to re cut and image with papers that are thicker/tougher then expected.

Hi Jeanette!

You can read all about this challenge in Norma's first post but to answer your question:

"All cricut projects are welcome to be posted here by participants for sharing ..... but 3 (three) projects are required to "complete" the challenge.

All projects MUST include something cut with your cricut .....please remember to let us know what cart you used!"

Hope this helps!

Yea, I use to have a lot less than 30 carts until I joined this challenge. No pressure to get more, just seeing all the beautiful work being done with a cartridge I didn't have was enough to send me shopping!

Thank you so much for making an exception for me. You are right about this challenge and buying more and more. I saw one of Michelle's LO and a flourish and I went out and bought the cartridge. Just so you know...J's still have their sale on the cartridges for $19.99. I am going on Sunday to the BIG J's across town to see if they have Outdoor Man. I can almost bet I come home with a few more. Enablers!!!

Thank you so much for making an exception for me. You are right about this challenge and buying more and more. I saw one of Michelle's LO and a flourish and I went out and bought the cartridge. Just so you know...
J's still have their sale on the cartridges for $19.99. I am going on Sunday to the BIG J's across town to see if they have Outdoor Man. I can almost bet I come home with a few more. Enablers!!!




I'm not listening, fingers in my ears!!!! I will be good, I will be good!

If it's not too late....I'm here!

Thank you all for your love and prayers last month. However, my mil was only with us for 4 days before she passed away. Lots of family in and trying to catch up with the housework and normal day to day life. But I think I am ready for some creativity.

Have several projects on my desk calling out my name.

JCI and getting ready to "fire up" the cricut.

Becky - I am so sorry for your family's loss. I will be praying for God to help lighten your heavy hearts. Glad you are back to play this month. Hopefully the distraction will be good for you.

Good morning.
Lots of snow here, and still snowing.

Becky, glad to see you back here, sorry for your loss.

I am tempted to stop at Joann's on my way to work, I am thinking about the Edge to edge cart. Not that they would have it in stock, but I could try! I looked online and seems all their carts at $19.99 too, but then there's S&H to pay.

I am old ! I cannot think of who else hosted this challenge.
But maybe I didn't participate then. That's going to be my excuse!

Updated to here, let me know if I missed you. We are already at 25 so I will be closing signups tonight at midnight.

Becky it is so good to see you here this month. I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.

Michelle thanks for answering Jeanettes question. Jeanette post your project to the thread and I will put it on the front page. I know there is a challenge thread but I'm old school and this works better for me. One of these days I am going to bite he bullet and come into the 21st century.

I just checked, my first month to take over the challenge in it's new format with RAK's was in September 2011. I think it was about a year later that I started giving away the Cricut cartridges. And that all started when I made multiple bids on evil bay and won duplicates of the same cartridge. Instead of trying to sell it I decided to give it away. Then I started to see how low I could get cartridges for. About 85% of them I have been able to get for less than $15 with shipping. HL and J's have provide a few steals for me too. A few of the cartridges have been given to me by friends who did the same evil bay duplicate thing! DH knows how much I enjoy this challenge and indulges me (he's a keeper).

Great to see the fast start, thanks Sharon and Melanie.

Okay off to get my Saturday started, be back later

Good morning all, I have my DGD up and deposited at the skating rink, roller, not ice.... My bedding is washed and hanging on the line. The temps are more Florida, in the 60's with plenty of sun. In fact I might air out the house while I'm at it.

I have 9 more pages ready to go so I better start up the Cricut. Good February to all! Oh, did I say I need more coffee??

I have to agree with Laura, I miss way too many when I have to refer to a challenge thread and the posting thread. Not everyone posts to the chatting thread too and I much prefer finding my spot on in this thread to comment.

Norma is the only host I've known!!

I just joined last year so Norma is the only host I have known too and she does such a fabulous job!

I also like when the posts are just in the thread - much easier to keep track of who I have left comments for. I run my challenges that way too!

Becky - so sorry for your loss. Glad to see you back though and looking forward to seeing your pages.

Well I only started with this challenge a couple of months ago but I think Norma does a terrific job hosting. She is the best I ever had!!!

Oh Becky, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I'm glad to see life is getting back to normal for you. Have fun scrappin'

Work is boring today. Chinese New Year started yesterday and it is dead here. It is the year of the horse!!! Wish I was at home scrappin'!!!

Have a great day.

P.S. Sharon, really airing out the house??? Lucky girl!

Jeanette, Looking forward to seeing some of your Cricut work. I'll check your gallery for earlier work.
Yup, airing the house..... I went off to watch my DGD perform in a brass band day and forgot to close the window. aahhhh fresh, sorry ladies I complain about the weather in the summer.
Like the mail carrier said this morning, "Our weather is like comparing Miami to Alaska, this last week!"

Kathy - so glad you're back and thanks for the gallery love!

Terri - I think I've got you beat I've only got 15. I guess you need to be a better "encouraging mentor" to me

Can't believe 12 hours at As scrapmania and only 3 los! Only 1 will get title made and added tomorrow. Managed to grab more pps and another Spellbinders, but should have grabbed the other one too!

ACU

Have fun watching the game everyone - and good luck to our FANatics!

Cold, crisp morning here, only 12, but the sun is shinning bright!
Nerve wracking day for me ( and Sonja ) - thankfully I have to work, but as there will be no customers in the store, I will be able to watch the game, but I won't ! But I will keep checking to keep updated on the score.
I have 1 LO done, but won't upload till maybe tomorrow.

Trish, on my layout titled, Sweet Pea, you said it looked like I had embossed the swirl, funny you mention that! I didn't have stickles, but had cheap glitter from our stockings this past Christmas, so used that in it's place, I wasn't satisfied with the bling factor, but it brought the swirl up off the page making it a raised embellie. I haven't really done much embossing, but would like to eventually.
