which one do I want???

Tell me what your favorite cart is! My SIL told me last night that my MIL gave her some $ to buy me a new cart. She wants to know which one I want! Here's what I do have:

  • George
  • Jasmine
  • Stretch Your Imagination
  • Wild Card
  • A Child's Year
  • Beyond Birthdays
  • Christmas Cheer

As you can see, I don't have many fonts to choose from. I kind of want one with both fonts and shapes. Let me know what you would get, or what your fav is!
ETA: I also want one with scallops- I don't have one and I would love to. It doesn't HAVE to have it, but it would be a plus!

Well, for fonts my fave is Lyrical Letters. I have been borrowing this cart from a friend for a while and I use it A LOT! So many different looks to choose from! But it does not have shapes or scallops, so not sure if you would be interested. It's on sale this week (weekend?) at Jo-Ann's if you have one of them nearby...I got something in the mail yesterday and was psyched to go buy it but I can't really justify it since I just got SCAL, haha!

Don Juan is my favorite cart that I have with both a font and shapes. It might have scallops; I can't remember! I know I have one with scallops but can't remember if that's it or not. Sorry! I'm sure someone will know though.

How much is it at JoAnns? My sister is dying for it, but she doesn't want to shell out the $. I guess I can deal without scallops.

I am looking at LL & Paisley I guess.

i was able to play with Paisley this weekend and it is FUN, but gosh, everything has tons of layers lol. It could drive me nuts, but I am going to buy it anyway I think. I loved it.

You may be interested in zooballoo. It has images, letters and scallops. I don't have it but I have been looking at the images on a bunch of trying to decide which ones I want to get.

I liked Plantin Schoolbook, but I don't think I like it that much. I also like Zooballo, but I have access to that one if I need it. My sister is thinking about buying LL, which is who I borrow most of my carts from, but she has moved and I think I would use it more than Zoo. I am leaning towards LL. I liked Paisley, but not 100%. I don't know what to do!

I'm a little confused by the thing they sent in the mail...the top says Feb. 21-Mar. 6th. Then at the very bottom it says 3 day sale, Feb. 26th-28th. So IDK about when they are actually on sale. Maybe you can check online? It says "34.99 each Cricut Cartridges. Includes Disney Cars, Tinkerbell, & LL." So maybe there are other ones on sale too, but LL caught my eye. Smile

I love Christmas Cheer but your not going to use it all year. Its nice to have though b/c thats a time of year that we tend to take lots of pics.

Of the ones you listed, I like Wild Card. It has so many different and odd shaped cards on it. I really have fun with them and its not the same old rectangle card.

I just got Paisley and its got cute stuff. I also really like Life's a Beach which has a font on it too.

LL has 5 fonts I believe...love it! But it'd be so hard for me to suggest just one. If you are looking for a Font cartridge, that'd be a great choice.
