My Favorite Cartridge Blog Hop













Please Note: Most other sites on the hop will be live tonight at 7:00pm. I am early as I have cub scout outing!



Welcome to the "My Favorite Cartridge Blog Hop!" Thank you to Erica for putting this hop together! So, are you wondering what my favorite is? I actually wrote Erica that I would take Storybook and if that was taken, Straight from the Nest. So, she let me have both! Well, it is too hard to chose one favorite! And I think some of the newer carts I don't even have yet could be my new favorites (say Damask Decor).



I am sharing a layout I made for my Grandmother-In-Law's 90th birthday. The center medallion is cut from Straight From the Nest at 10". I love cartridges that had shadows of the images so I can pull all my colors together! The brown card stock had a pearl finish and was quite heavy. I had to cut it with my heavy duty blade at a 6 on the blade housing. You may find this true of glitter card stock too!



I used Storybook to cut my journaling block and stretched it in my Design Studio to fit my Lil Davis Designs stamps by Fiskars. I am loving these stamp sets for journaling! Seems a small spot stamped helps me to get my journaling done, and I got the whole set for $3.00 on Scrapbucks.


Flowers are Prima, paper and pearls are Close to My Heart.



Now, how about some blog candy? I am offering a $15.00 gift certificate to either of my Etsy stores: Scrapingcovers and Scrapguild.etsy.com, and FREE shipping of your item to the US or Canada. I welcome entries and winners outside the US and Canada and ask that you pay any difference in shipping. So, here is how to enter my blog candy drawing:



Visit my stores above or my video at YouTube about my scrapbag and tell me what you like best in a comment on this post. You can find my video here. Be sure to leave a method to contact you in your comments and in a safe manner! For instance, jsmith at hotmail dot com is safer than typing in your actual address.


You do NOT need to follow my blog. If like what you see, please follow but I don't believe in requiring this for an entry! I am attaching a picture below of one of my scrap bags and one of my Cricut dust covers. I do make covers for other cutters such as Pazzles, and Silhouette. Custom orders are welcome! Winner will be drawn on Monday, May 2, 2011.

  1. I like your creations. I have a question: I am getting the E2, and I also have the Expressions. How much are your covers for the Expressions machine, and are you going to be making a cover for the E2 machine? You can either email me at plogan@columbus.rr.com or convo me at www.etsy.com/shop/plogan721. Thanks.

  8. Visited your Etsy, I'm like the chocolate expression cover. Looks like you may have to create one for the E2 or maybe the regular one will fit?

  24. I love the colors in your project. I'm sure your grandmother in law will also love it, 90 years is a remarkable journey and I believe these types of gifts are the best. Memories are priceless! I love your bag/ cover. I am always afraid I'm going to get a scratch on my Cricut and with one of these I wouldn't have to worry about that! Not to mention keeping the dust out! Thanks for sharing this.

    I'm a new follower and would love to have you stop over by my blog also.

    Thanks much!

  29. I love both the Cart Caddy because I'm always in need of more storage space and it's a great storage design. AND the Blue & Black scrap bag. I love the scrap bag because I'm always having to clean up my scraps from everywhere & the scrap bag would allow me to have a confined area to clean up my scraps w/out having the cats chase me all over...LOL...
    you can contact me on Erica's FB page, I'm Michelle H___ or you can e-mail me through g-mail, I'm following you as well. broknwing75 at gmail dot com .

    Thanks for sharing! I'm having so much fun on the blog hop & getting great ideas!
