Cricut Lite-Sugar & Spice

I cut the diaper pins at 2 3/4".  Standard size card:  5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I really like this cartridge.  Great for boy or girl.

My 1st Cricut Lite Cartridge Arrived!!

In today's mail my first Cricut Lite arrived I ordered the Sugar and Spice on Ebay.  I got it for 36.99 which was good because they sell at Walmart for 39.00 plus tax and gas to pick it up.  None of our Walmarts have them around here.  Actually the craft departments in them are looking pretty empty.  

 The cartridges have an actual plastic case to hold everything which is great compared to the solutions.  I will post something later today with it. As you can see the have a trifold booklet.  I think the way this is set up is actually easier than the regular books.  I will let you know!

Post it Note Holder

A quick and easy project. This can be as fancy or easy as you want. 


4 x 6 in acrylic photo frame with stand

4 x 6 in. paper for background

1 package of post it notes- when the notes are gone just add a new one with double sided tape.

I used the plantin school book cartridge and cut the word notes at 1"

I had a sticker I used that said Home is where the Heart is.

Really fun to make, there are so many different versions of this.  You can use buttons, ribbon, layer your Cricut cuts, even use the cuttlebug. I made this for my desk.  I have also seen them done with a pen that is called RSVP pens and you cut the paper to put inside the pen that matches the paper background then tie with a ribbon.  You can use your stamps, stickers, even make an initial and give as a gift.

I made a really cute card for the My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge.  I can't post it yet until they pull the 7 names. That is one of the rules it can't be on your blog.  I don't plan on winning I just thought it would be fun to enter.  If you check her website you can enter your own card too.  It is a 3 month commitment.  Check out for more details.  So many of you are so creative who knows you could get picked.  Good luck everyone.  Entries have to be in by June 28th and they are picking the winners on July 1st..

Coming July 19th to the HSN channel---Martha Stewart Crafts

Monday July 19th at midnight  EST  on they are debuting Martha Stewart Crafts.  She will have a Todays Special.  What that means she will have a special price for the day on a selected item. I know HSN always has great craft bundling prices for their Today's Special.  Don't know what it is going to be yet but this is where I bought my Cricut and my Cuttlebug at great prices.  Plus they were on Easy Pay so I only had to pay a certain amount per a month.  Made it alot more affordable.  If I find any more information i will let you know.

Waiting for my Cricut Lite Cartridge!

I ordered a Cricut Lite Cartridge on Ebay.  I paid under 36.99 for the  Lovely Floral.  As soon as it comes I will be making some new cards with that.  I have quite the collection of paper and carts. Now I have to put them to good use.  I work as a hairdresser and my boss was so impressed with some of the cards I brought in that she wants me to sell them at the shop.  I need to package them up. I figured I would try, Thank  you notes, birthday cards, baby cards, and assortments.  Hope I'm not getting in over my head. I'll let you know how that goes.  Working on some stuff now.  Thanks for checking in!! Phyllis

New Cricut Lite Cartridges

I can't believe these cartridges just snuck out.  It seems like nobody knew they were coming out.  At Walmart they have these cartridges, not all are available yet though.  They are like a solutions cartridge but come in a nice box.  There are 50 images on each and they have just a Layer feature from what I understand.  They seem pricey though they are 39.00 plus tax.  Yikes!  But they do have some cute ones. I guess I will have to check Ebay!!

Hello Kitty Greeting Cartridge

I made this card tonight using the Hello Kitty Greetings.  Easy to use Cartridge. I recommend it especially for me it was good because I am a beginner. I used the swiss dots on the cuttlebug too.  The saying is from My Pink Stamper stamp set.
