Cricut Saturday

Retired Cartridges: 
Well its been really hard keeping up with the coming and goings of cartridges lately from Provo Craft. They have retired 4 cartridges over the past 2 months and one of them is a really big surprise.  Tags Bags Boxes and More has been retired!
Here is a list of all that are being retired. I am not sure when they are going to no longer going to be available, but I have a feeling from what I have read that they are no producing any more of these carts and when they are gone that will be it.  So if you want one of theses I would get on it right away!

Tags, Bags, Boxes and more
Designer Calendar (this is strictly rumor, I haven't seen official word from Provo Craft that this is retiring.)
Street Sign

I think one of the reasons for the Designer Calendar to be on this list (which I found on the Cricut Message Board) is because of the new combo cartridge that  PC is offering. It contains both Christmas Noel and Designer Calender. You can get this directly from PC and they are currently offering free shipping!

And then there are the new cartridges: 

Give a Hoot
"Just Because" Cards
Straight From the Nest (exclusive to HSN) Serenade is getting a wide release!

Create a Critter
Nursery Rhymes
Independence Day (Seasonal) Summer Vacation (Seasonal) Summer in Paris (Seasonal) Elegant Cakes
Holiday Cakes Birthday Cakes Cake Basics (with the Cricut CakeTM machine)

Get out those credit cards and checkbooks ... These are really cute!

Cricut Tips and Tricks

Have you seen this? Its a sheet for blade settings from Cricut.  

You can get a printable copy of this from This is really handy to have. There is another guide available from  On this awesome site you will also find Megan's newest offer.. A FREE ebook, "10 Hot Trends for Scrapbooking and Card Making" This is a great book and there is a lot of good information in it. 

Best project found online: 

I love the Cricut message board. There are so many talented people there and they are always willing to share what they know. The project that I found that I want to share with you so that you can take a look is: A Wedding Cake. This is just beautiful.  I can't even tell you how lovely this is. I want to make one for a friend that is getting married, and so many others for different occasions.

I am off to do some more crafting... It is a grey day and perfect for listening to a book on my Ipod and scrapping!

Please leave a comment... I really love hearing from you!
