Copying this from my original thread lol- http://www.cricut.com/messageboard/tm.aspx?m=3286622


THANK YOU to my boyfriend for making me look for his stupid pen or else I would not have driven down that way tonight!!!

So I saw the Ms sign and was like WHAT THE CRAP ~car proceeds to turn into parking lot~ I'm already freaking out that there is a Ms SO FRIGGIN CLOSE TO MY HOUSE!! So I walk around, of course scrapping department is the first stop. Looking around, walk over to cricut stuff and what do I see.. CALLIGRAPHY COLLECTION!! Of course I pick that up. And of course I heard about Cars and Tinkerbell being in stores soon, so I look if they have it out and only tags are out.. =( sigh ok. Walk around some more.. get nosy "Hmm I'll ask anyways, can't hurt =)" So 3.. THREE.. people, including the manager start running around trying to look for it. Now I appreciate just one person helping but 3.. WOW!! I apoligize for having 3 people run around just because I asked if they had Tinkerbell and Cars and no one can find it. Lady says.. No problem it's our job! =) "... uh.. wow.." LOL. SO after about half an hour.. THEY FOUND IT!!!

I NOW OWN CARS TINKERBELL AND CALLIGRAPHY COLLECTION!!! I will not complain anymore when I have to stay in the city =) LOL


I forgot to mention I'm going to be tortured everyday (depending on which road I take) going to school and work >.<

Target Itso storage cubes

So I wanted the storage cubes that everyone raves about but I had no where (permanent) I'm allowed to put them. These are from Target, Itso storage cubes. They have shelf and door attachments (which you can see both in picture). Their accessories also include drawers and bins, both plastic and fabric, and more colors. These were easy to put together and light enough to move around whenever needed. I also love how the doors are dry erase, I can remind myself of upcoming swaps and such I made to the board and/or daily life =)

When I first joined the Cricut forum, swaps sounded so fun!! But I stayed away from swaps for 3 months because I was, actually still consider myself to be, very new. I wanted to see what people made in swaps, maybe my simpleness wouldn't matter but going through every thread trying to look for pictures is very time consuming =( So an idea crossed my mind today.

I'm going to start posting the finished swaps I participate in :D. Then other people who felt intimidated, or was it only me?, can see everyone has to start somewhere =). There are 2 lists in the right hand sidebar, one is current swaps (just to remind myself) and completed swaps. Links to original thread and completed swap pictures will be attached to both =)

Enjoy! =)

cartridge organization

Posted on a thread that asked how people organize their carts and here's how I do it =)

Just a basic tackle box from Walmart. Labeled by type in alphabetical order.

Since I have CDS I don't need the overlays much. Original books and overlays are stored in photo boxes. Booklets were printed and organized (again in alphabetical order) by type =)

I have labeled the carts and tab dividers in my binders. If anything is missing, I can tell right away by flipping through =) Very proud of my collection here hehe.

bookmark swap

My first swap! I felt like I didn't do my best on my bookmark, so I apologize to my group =( But it was a GREAT experience for me!

MarciaBorer- GREAT hostess =) Always kept us updated. Went beyond her duties and made extra bookmarks to cover for missing bookmarks. She even made stamped images for people!

vacation layouts

This was my first try at scrapbooking. =) Family vacation to Ruby Falls, Rock City and WDW summer 08. I am not done with this book yet.

There is a cut out with flowers, creator is OBXlove, member of Cricut messageboard. I used it to test out my E when I first got it, so thanks OBXlove =)

Last picture I made from a random idea. My mom LOVES purple so I thought I'd make her some kind of scrapper's "peg board". I am plannig on putting pictures of my brother sister and I.. couple family photos =)

Winnie the Pooh cart creations

I wanted a decal off ebay for my car but didn't want to pay so much for just a sticker that my boyfriend will "accidentally" wax off again. Much to my excitement, my Pooh carts arrived today from Qurbis(ebay) so I made my own! What I like best about this is that it can be taken off the car and reused, unlike actual decals. I share my car with my boyfriend and whenever I'm out of state, he usually throws everything girly-like out of my car, so now.. it can be taken off and just as easily put back on whenever I like!

I played around with DS and finally figured out how to resize and layer correctly SO I made this..

Then it crossed my mind that this could be something like a door hanger, the type little kids have, wooden, hanging outside their bedrooms. I wanted a cursive type font but haven't received my Jasmine cart yet so I created it using DS, here's a screenshot..

Now I just gotta wait for Jasmine to come in! It's about 5 1/2" inches tall so it wouldn't be a bad idea as a book/scrapbook cover as well!

Birthday dinner today so I threw together this card.. No more spending money on cards and it's more personalized =)
