I just realized that I got 9 new Cricut Cartridges, a Cricut Expression, and a Cricut Cake Mini since November. Between the Black Friday pre-sales, the Black Friday sales, the Christmas sales, the after-Christmas sales, and the New Year's sales, I went entirely crazy. To be fair, three cartridges came with the new machines I got. Still, way too much excess. Thus, my goal will be not to buy another cartridge for at least a month or two.
The list, in approximate order of purchase, appear below. My fingers are crossed that I don't like any of the Hello Thursday cartridges for this month.
Nifty Fifties - I'm sad to say that I haven't cut anything with this cartridge, although I have
Sesame Street Seasons - I have big plans to make kid-themed stuff using the Sesame characters, but for now I've gotten tons of use out of a couple of snowflakes on this cartridge.
Cake Basis - This came with my Cake Mini, but has some really cute snowflakes that I used on my thanks you cards.
Plantin Schoolbook - This one came with my new Cricut Expression and has a nice font and some basis shapes.
Potpourri Basket - Along with Plantin Schoolbook, this came with my Cricut Expression.
Seasonal Cake Art - This was a favorite with my holiday card-making this year.
Winter Frolic - I waffled all fall whether I wanted to get this cartridge, but finally could not pass it up when the price fell under $20. I think I may have only paid $14.95 or $16.95 at Cricutmachine.com. While some of the cuts have many layers, for the most part, I'm loving this cartridge and am looking forward to scrapping my holiday pictures with it. I've already started a mini album. Good word art too.
Happy Hauntings - Unopened, but I still haven't finished my Halloween exploding envelopes house, so I am sure this will come in handy.
Straight From the Nest - Unopened, but this should be great for spring.
Best of Pixar - This arrived last week and is still awaiting pickup at my aunties. Monsters' Inc is my favorite, however, so I can't wait to play with this cartridge.
Pack Your Bags - Along with Best of Pixar, this one is at my auntie's waiting for me to go over and pick it up. I love the summery images on this cartridge, so hopefully the cuts will be simple.
