Great news! I'm glad they were great to deal with, and that it was just the cart instead of the whole machine - you waited so long so patiently to get it!!!! :)

I like to lay my letters out on a craft mat where I want them to be in relation to one another. The tails will be all over the place. Then with a craft knife cut through both tails (one for the letter on the left and one for the letter on the right). Then, when I lay them on the paper I just line up the cut marks (they match perfectly) and you can hardly tell that they're not one solid piece.

Hi Ladies! Thanks for starting a new thread. I am just starting to really use my Cricut. I have the WIMY, BB, TBBM, MM and of course George. I hope this thread will make me use it more. I am more of a card marker than scrapbooker, but I love to give scrapbooks as gifts. So I've mostly been using my MM cart for those scallops.

I just finished a wedding scrapbook and I used the MM scallop, the words "love" "blessings" from BB for a few layouts with mats from the CB emossing folders. I used mostly black, white, silver and real red from SU for color pallete. In case that helps at all!

Does anyone know if there's any wedding-type anything on any of the carts? I have Doodlecharms, but there isn't anything on that.

Check out celebrations, it has a cake and a saying that reads it's your day. Tell me if you like it and what colors you would want and I can send them to you.

It has a pic of a cricut on there...so I have been saying cricket. But I know some people that call it cry-cut.
Hubbies all think they are too smart!

caitlinstamps 04-11-2007 02:04 PM

No I have got to get better at taking pics of my work. I am far too lazy to hook up my scanner, but I'll work on pics.

good luck!

Welcome caitlinstamps! This thread should help you start using the little bug more. We are all rabid Cricut lovers here. Your wedding scrapbook sounds pretty. The colors sound great. Let us know if you upload pictures!

Hey, no problem. Just let me know. I have (cough, cough) most of the carts, so I can probably set you up if you find other stuff you like. I can do SU cardstock colors easily.

Top 3??? Can we do a top 10???!!! I am going to think on this one for a while.

loricabo 04-11-2007 05:49 PM

OK, I need your help. I need to make 2 wedding cards. I have never made a wedding card, and am debating just buying them. Can you share links to any great wedding cards? I don't have any of the traditional SU wedding stamp sets. I do have tons of flower sets, backgrounds, Cricut and Cuttlebug embossing folders. Thanks for any inspiration you can offer!:)

Molly out of that list the ones I have that you don't are mini monograms and opposties attract. That should help cut down on what you need her to cut for you. I guess we need to schedule another crop day.:D

hart2heart 04-11-2007 06:27 PM

I just got back from Michael's and I am a bad, bad person. I called today and asked if I bought cartridges and they went on sale, could I get the price difference. She said that if it was in the next ad cycle (which Sunday will be) then I just needed to bring in my receipt for the difference. I am not going to open them just in case because I am NOT paying $90 each for them. Anyway, I got Zooballoo, Walk in My Garden, and Base Camp. I may decide to get Jasmine on Sunday if they have any left. I couldn't swing 4 cartridges. It was hard enough choking down the total for 3! I have to keep telling myself that I didn't really spend that much. I am just borrowing the money until they go on sale.

I did the same thing and all the people at Michael's looked at me like I was crazy. I eventually found it, but they had no idea what I was talking about.

There's no way I could narrow it down!! I'll try, though, lol. Right now I'd be desperate without my Jasmine, since I've used it for every title in my SIL's wedding album, lol! And Christmas Cheer, since I've been working on Christmas pics, and Zooballoo, my favorite font! ;)

I finished another layout tonight, and then my internet was down forever so I had to wait to come here!!!!!!! Stupid storm! :roll:

danssister 04-11-2007 08:18 PM

I uploaded a few more layouts that I did for my SIL's wedding album. Here's one of them:

//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/527722?nocache=1

I hope she likes them! It's so hard to scrap something so important and not totally do it "my way" you know?
