Updated Cricut Cartridge Checklist

I have re-updated my Checklist because there were two cartridges that were missing from the original list. It was thanks to someone, from the Cricut MB, who brought this to my attention.

I am so sorry that you have to re-download the Checklist. The cartridges that were missing were:-

* Hello Kitty® Font Cricut® Cartridge
* Hello Kitty® Greetings Cricut® Cartridge

The reason they were missing is because I remember having a problem w/ deciding where to put them on the Checklist. Because Hello Kitty is the actual trademark, instead of Cricut, I have now decided to place them just after the Disney carts. :-)

Here's where you can find it:-

Christmas in July

Well, I finally did it! I actually made a Christmas card before Christmas ---- and in July, yet! LOLInside:-

I absolutely fell in love w/ the Cricut Lite Jolly Holidays cart. But, when it first showed its face here, I missed out on getting it. :-( Then, just recently, a gal from the Cricut MB didn't want hers anymore and was willing to sell it to me. So, it was only apropos that I used it for my "first" Christmas card. :-)

Isn't the Santa and the li'l crow just an absolute hoot??!! :-)

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Cartridge – Cricut Lite Jolly Holidays
Martha Stewart Punches – Snowflake corner punch; snowflake single punches
Cuttlebug Folders – Divine Swirls; Snowflakes
Stamps – Stampin’ Up "Alphabet Soup"; Hero Arts – inside sentiment
Glue – regular;
ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock –
white (base); red; blue glittered; white (for the Imagine, snow and sentiment bases)
Stickles – Frosted Lace
I was considering Cuttlebugging Santa’s beard w/ the Divine Swirls folder but I thought it might conflict w/ the snow and/or be too much. The sky is Cuttlebugged w/ the Snowflakes folder. Then I punched out individual snowflakes from the MS punches and pop-dotted them. I thought they complemented the Snowflake folder. :-)
Stickled both Santa’s and the li’l crow’s hat.
I’m still in shock that I’ve actually accomplished making a Christmas card in July. LOL That is definitely going to go down in history! :-)

Lookie see. . . who has new "duds"

Why, it's li'l Cricut! He has a new night shirt. He was feelin' a bit of a draft at night. Now, he'll be toasty warm --- even his li'l antennae will be warm. :-)

These clothes originally belonged to Silvester, the Cat. . . . .
It's actually a win-win situation cuz li'l Bailey now has Silvester to play with. :-)
Hope you're all having a nice day! Thanks so much for visiting!! :-)

Card for Angel's Momma

Made this card for a friend whose li’l Chihuahua has a broken leg, because it was attacked by two larger dogs. The dogs’ owner didn’t even apologize or help my friend w/ her li’l pooch. The nerve of some people!!

Oooops, I stickled "hugs" after I took the picture. :-)

Because I don’t have the “Four Legged Friends” cartridge, I had to improvise. I utilized my Cricut Design Studio, got the design/layers for the li’l Chihuahua; copied/pasted them and then cut out the design/layers with, you ready for it??? ----- scissors. Yeppers! --- the cutter prior to the Cricut. :-) Even tho it wasn’t a REAL troublesome design, I still really missed my Cricut cutting it out for me. And now that cart. is definitely on my “wish list”. :-)

Li’l Angel has a white spot on her forehead that looks just like a heart, so I had to put a heart on the li’l pooch. She also has a pink cast, so that’s why her hind leg is pink. She must love pink because she has this beautiful pink bed to rest her li’l body; hence, the pink pillow.
