What cartridges?

The Cricut owners thread got me wondering what cartridges everyone has and what ones do you just love and wouldn't be able to live without? I have several cartridges but have only used a couple of them. I finally cleaned up and organized my scrap area so that I can have my Cricut out at all times so that it is easier to use. I have Plantin Schoolbook, New Arrival, Stretch Your Imangination, Stone Script, Walk in my Garden, Teardrop, Alphalicious, and then the two that came with my Cricut, George and Keystone. Wow, I really need to get my butt in gear and start using all of these! I didn't realize I had so many.

Wow, you do have a lot. I have George, Alphalicious, and Cursive 101, and Doodlecharms. I love Doodlecharms for it's basic characters. I did T.J.'s bug themed birthday with it. My next got to have is Paper Dolls. It makes so much more than just dolls.

I am waiting for Doodlecharms to come in at Michael's, I have a raincheck for when the cartridges were $39.99 and they still haven't filled all the orders for it from then. I have a lot of people say they want Paper Dolls, I haven't ever seen anything made with it so I don't know how cool that one is.

Paper Dolls might be fun for your daughter to use! (Or is she over that stage?)
I don't have a Cricut but I'm drooling over all the cartridges you have Lol

  • Alphalicious
  • Jasmine
  • Fabulous Finds
  • George

Just 4 so far, but I find I can do so much with just them, that I am not in a hurry to get more. But Doodlecharms, Opposites Attract and Accent Essentials are at the top of my list.

I have:
George
New Arrival
Doodlecharms

I want:
Christmas Cheer
Walk in my Garden

I definitely use george A LOT for titles and shapes, etc. New arrival I am using a lot too, since I am currently scrapping DS's early pictures. Doodlecharms I use every now and then, but since it has different seasonal and holiday stuff, I will likely use that more little by little.

Actually Amy, if you hadn't, I was going to. I'm very curious. It's just got me thinking what I'm going to do. Now, I even have a new camera. It's not a great one but it was free and it works. So I'm happy with that.

I have: Accent Essentials, Alphalicious, Animal Kingdom, Christmas Cheer, Doodlecharms, George, Mickey and Friends, New Arrival, Plantin Schoobook, and Teardrop.

I haven't had a chance to use all of them yet, but right now I'm using the Doodlecharms cartridge to make Madison's birthday invitations.

I also really want Dreams Come True, Happily Ever After, and Pooh and Friends, but I haven't seen them cheap enough yet.

Lisa, do you not have a Michael's close to you? A little over a month ago they had all carts for only $39.99 (when I went the only ones left at my Michael's was all the Disney ones) and then 2 weeks later they had them for $45.99. I ended up getting rainchecks for the ones I wanted that weren't in the store.

Try ohmycrafts.com. They have a lot from around $33.00 to $45.00. I think I'll be ordering from them.

Yes, we have a Michael's nearby. I actually got most of my carts there when they were on sale for 39.99. I actually had the princess carts in my hand, but I convinced myself that I needed the others more. I've also bought a few on Ebay, but I won't pay that much on there. If Michael's sells the carts for 39.99 again, I probably will get them there. I haven't paid more than $43 (after tax) for a cart and I keep holding out for good deals.

Ahhh, see I had to do the same thing because even though it was a good price I couldn't afford to buy all of the carts I wanted at that time. I was lucky though and got a raincheck for all of the carts I wanted and they have all been coming in little by little so I was able to get them all that way.

I am so bummed because I got a raincheck at Micheals for Paper Dolls and I have lost it! So bummed!

They never asked me for my raincheck because they kept a copy and then called me when the items came in. Does your Michael's keep a copy of the rainchecks?
