New Cricut Cartridges!

So Provo Craft has announced 6 more new cartridges coming out soon. Some are “I gotta have” cartridges and some I’m a little disappointed in while others are excited about them. I was very disappointed in the Car Decal. There isn’t anything on that cartridge that I’d want to put on any of our vehicles, but I’m sure, there are some who will think this is an awesome cartridge…but how many of those images are you actually going to use?

Now Paper Lace, this is a very nice cartridge and I have seen some already cool projects made with this cartridge…I think this one will be a great cartridge to get…especially for cardmakers.

Sesame Street Seasons, I think it’s an adorable cartridge. It wouldn’t be my first pick, but it’s got potential. I know it would be cute on some layouts, but again, I was thinking of a couple of card ideas that would be cute with some of those images.

Quarter Note, is also a nice cartridge, but again, how many times will you use it? I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but once I cut that Saxophone, that I need for my son’s layout, what else will I use that cartridge for?

That’s why I like Make the Cut and Scal, because if I only need an item I can purchase just the one item or create it myself. I can’t say enough about these two wonderful softwares. With these softwares available, it makes scrapbooking possibilities, endless. I have done so much more since acquiring these softwares. The reason why I say these, is because I originally started with SCAL, but I have to say, that I am only using Make the Cut now. I enjoy this program and yet I have used SCAL for some things as I can do a little better in that program than in Make the Cut, with that said, Make the Cut is my software of choice.

Halloween Ghost treat card and Hanging Out With Layout….

I saw this card on Kelly’s blog and thought it was the cutest little card and I made mine a tad bit different. It was a lot of fun…we did it Saturday morning as a Make and Take at SCRAPS in Houlton…Thank you Kelly for sharing your card with all of us here in Maine.

So here’s our version of Kelly’s card…I only had 2 cardmakers on Saturday, and one was I believe the youngest student we have had so far…He is only 6 years old and he made an adorable card. He definitely has talent, be sure to check out the layout he did on Monday night. Yup, he came back to our class on Monday evening and he did a fantastic job! It’s nice to see the creativity of these young kids. So enjoy our cards and our layouts.

Treat cup is from Stampin Up, stamp is from the G series and instead of heat embossing we just used the versa mark, to create some depth on our card. The ghost was cut from Make the Cut, the RiP was cut from Wild Cards cartridge.


This first layout was the color that I had originally planned to do, but once I had it on my table, I wasn’t sure if I liked it, so I kyboshed it and went with my second choice, which I will be posting below. When I had this paper on the table, a couple of the girls commented on the colors and so I decided to throw it together after all…this layout will be down to SCRAPS for sale for $12.00, all you have to do is add your own pictures and any journaling.

100_6470 100_6471  Isn’t this the cutest little monkey ever? Oops I just noticed I forgot to put the bows on this page, guess I best go do that right now :)

So here’s the page I did for the class, I think I like them both, what’s your opinion. We love to read your comments so please be sure to leave them. Thanks, Enjoy the rest of the girls/and young men’s layouts.
