quick! favorite Cricut cartridge (again)

I know this gets asked frequent. But customcrops.com is having a sale until tomorrow and I'm buying a cartridge. But I can't decide what to get. I like Beyond Birthdays but am thinking about Plantin Schoolbook. Ack!!!!

Which one(s) do you totally LOVE?!

(take pity on the sick mom to newborn and reply)

LOL! I *still* only have 4 cartridges,:( but I use Alphalicious so much, I guess that would be my favorite. I just made two more cards today with it!

Storybook is not on sale (since it's new) but after just checking it out, I will HAVE to get it when the price goes down. Wink

I'm leaning towards the Plantin Schoolbook due to the end caps feature, I love that feature!!!!

I have Alphalicious and that and Cuttin' Up are my two current favorites.

Well, I have used Doodlecharms the most, but when I get a chance I will be using Christmas Cheer and New Arrival a lot. If I were buying a cartridge now, I would get Paper Doll Dress Up, Pooh and Friends, and Tags, Boxes and More. I can't wait until Sesame Street comes out later this year.

oh, I just looked at the Plantin Schoolbook and love it! I would go with that! I just saw it has scalloped edging.....that's the NEXT one on my list for sure.

My absolute favorite after checking ALL of them out on cricut.com is Zooballoo and I tried to win one on ebay for $35 ($5 for shipping) but got outbid. Though the seller sent me a 2nd chance offer and I can still buy it at the top bid I made. I got 12 hours to decide if I want it. Just also picked up a Fabulous Finds today at Michael's for $40, I tried to find a Stretch Your Imagination, but I they had none in stock! Sad I might have gotten that one instead of Fabulous Finds if they had it.

I wrote a list of 16 different carts I wanted and neither of the ones you stated, I wanted, but if I had to choose, I'd probably do Plantin, a lot of the font carts have birthday related "sayings" on it, I guess not necessarily shapes, that you probably or might want.

Sorry if I confused you! HAHA! I'm so into these darn carts myself! HAHA!

I went ahead and got the schoolbook. Wink DH and I have a deal, I have to pay cash for my scrapbooking stuff, so that purchase just came out of my allowance. I can't wait for the day that storybook is $38.99!!! when I got paper dolls, it was $55. I have Zooballoo, and it's really cute. I think I have 8-9 carts now.

DH just said I can go ahead and buy one too! YAY! I'm using my card money to buy it. I just sold two more yesterday, so I have enought. LOL I'm sooo confused now though....ugh! I want Plantin and Home Accents:
http://www.customcrops.com/home_accents.html

It's not near as expensive as Accent Essentials, yet has some cool cuts. Buuuuut, it doesn't have the scalloped edge and I'm getting tired of hand-cutting all my scalloped edges!! Which one would you think?

Yay, a lot of us are getting new carts. I went ahead and took the 2nd chance offer on zooballoo, so I'll be getting that soon. Oh yeah, and DH doesn't know nothing about either carts I've gotten in the 2 days. LOL Shhhhh!!!!

Lol Aja! Good for you! hehe

OK, I ordered the Home Accents cart! I can't wait to play with it. It will be good for the cards I think.

I liked home accents too ... but then I wondered how much use I'd really get out of it. You're selling cards, so you'd probably get more use than me. So maybe you buy that one ... and if I need something cut, I can email you and you could cut and mail me something. ha ha ha And I could cut for you on Plantin and mail it to you. Man, I hate that you live so far away!!!!!

I think we should all be in an agreement, that those who have a cricut and might have a cart you don't have, you can ask them to make some cuts for you. LOL I'd do it for anyone who wanted a cut!
