I have 2 of the scalloped circles, I bought them maybe 1-2 months ago. Luckily, I got them from my LSS with a 40% off coupon, so at least I didn't pay full price for them. I can't wait for my Mini-Monograms to get here!!!

LOL... I had two carts when I first chatted with these ladies, then I shot up to 14, I am kind of in hole there. I am being much more picky about what I get now and seeing the carts priced so Low I am waiting for the ones I want. Except paperdolls I waited for it since Aug. so I am getting it in Dec. Soon maybe next weekend I'll be using it depends on when its released.

Okay, I just started a project and I need help! Which carts have a music note?? I have Stretch Your Imagination on preorder and I know that has one but I need one today!!! Locker Talk has one but it is grouped with a large square and I don't want to waste paper.

Thanks girls!

I too have wanted a music note. The new Christmas one has some with the "pipers piping" I think, but you probably can't just cut them. BUMMER!!

Robyn just thought about it wont it cut the note shape first. Then you can hit stop and you have a note. Then you would use the least amount of paper and have pieces to amt with or big enough for cards. HTH

Boy, I agree about justification with the dies. I also own a Sizzix machine and have several dies. I intend to keep them for now, but honestly I think the Cricut is by far the best thing that has happened to me. Not only a space saver but cost saver too.

I usually have to make 80-100 cards, and I think this year I'll only have to do about 30 in addition to those I've already made. Gives me time to work on other things.
Now that is a lot of cards! Isn't it so much fun though?

It doesn't cut the note first. I tried it already. Nuts!! You would think it would from the way it looks in the pic.

Oh well. I'm making an album for my little sister but I am just going to make it super simple. No musical notes for her!

I have All Jazzed Up, the matching Jazz wheel, and the music set from the mini a year or so ago. Want me to stamp some images and put them in the mail?

I think that Michaels has some music note brads, too! And I think they're on sale this week.

Duh! I have the stamps!! I have both those, too, but since I got my Cricut a year ago I never use my stamps for scrapbooking. Okay, that totally makes sense! Thanks so much for the kind offer. You rock!!

Hi all! I just had to share that I am the proud new owner of the eBug! I got the ACM bundle and got it with a 50% coupon....only $ 190.00 for it, the 4 carts, markers and mat! I was shocked when my husband came home with it! I am subscribing to this thread so I can get some ideas and tips! You all are great for the ideas you share!

I was shocked when my husband came home with it! I am subscribing to this thread so I can get some ideas and tips! You all are great for the ideas you share!
Congrats and welcome! This group is really on the ball with ideas!

Okay, I feel like a total dork!! I tried to make those ornaments by using the Accent Essentials cart. I cut out 3 of the pointed circles and slit them halfway then I tried to put them all together. What am I doing wrong??

Don't you know since this morning it's back to $49.99!! So I call the number again to say I saw it this morning for the lower price and I am still getting the same recording as this morning. I guess I missed out.
Bummer that you missed the sale! Michaels has cartridges on sale this week for $45 which what I paid with shipping for my cartridge from Custom Crops.

Thinking for next time if I don't have a lot of pressure maybe I'll be able to get the paper off the mat a little easier. It's a shame cause it cut great lines but as I've been peeling the paper from the mat my paper in the center is just completely being ripped. I'm mainly using the scraper to try to get the paper off just so I can reuse the mat but that doesn't seem to be it's purpose.
The pressure is for the blade. My ebug mats have been really sticky lately too, but I haven't had that much difficulty getting my paper off the mat. I have had trouble with getting the sticky to stay on the mat and not transfer onto the plastic cover sheet.

Good luck!
Thanks Robyn. I need to remember this for the future.

Use 6 or 8 full circles. Fold them in half right sides together. Glue wrong side to wrong side of 2 together matching the points. Add then next one, glue wrong side to wrong side. On the 6th or 8th one add the string and glue together.

Does that help???

Yippeee that your wait is over! The ebug is great isn't it? I don't think that I say enough that I love mine! LOL (And I used to say that I didn't need one and my baby bug would do just fine for me HAHA). Have fun playing with your new toy and make sure you share what you make. We love to see them!
