Can't make it that day?  No problem, there will be a replay for a limited time afterwards.

Finally, do you like Star Trek? I love it and I just saw the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie and it was fantastic! Lots of links to older Star Trek themes but with a new twist.  Loads of fun.  I probably will only see it another 3-4 times in the theater - LOL!

Have a great weekend!

  13. LOVE the layouts!! LOVE LOVE LOVE these cartridges. I WILL own them somday. Not so fond of CCR. I will not be dependent on my computer and internet to make cards and scrapbooks. I am an AVID Gypsy lover, and I hope that someday PC is able to bring out a new one. But is really, really nice of PC to put these layouts free on CCR for a while.

  16. I have not used the Craft Room as yet. I have SCAL2 and once I learned you could use both I was happy but still have not found the time to check it out. Maybe someone could tell me what the advantage is if I don't plan to buy cartridges. Love to try it if it would be worth it. thanks in advance

I would love to win the Teddy Bear Cart. That is my next cart to buy. I have seen many projects with that cart and I just have to have it. It would be great to win it. Thanks, JoAnn

  26. So excited to see the follow up to the First Few Years . I bought it as soon as it came out and I absolutely love it. I made my granddaughter a baby album with it. I think I'll have to get When I was a Kid, too.

  43. I love the layouts! I always wonder when I see 3D embellishments like buttons though, how do they work under a plastic page protector?

    As for Cricut Craft Room--I just logged in for the first time this Friday night! I actually hadn't been interested before because I have a Gypsy. Then I got an e-mail about Gypsy linking with the Cricut Craft Room and getting $20 free credit. So, I gave it a try and got the Destinations cartridge for free and can now use it on my Gypsy! I had also selected 2 individual images and can't seem to find those on my Gypsy though. I guess I still have some learning to do!

    Thanks for the layout inspiration and the chance to win a cute cartridge!

  44. FIANLLY, I am excited about these 2 newly released cartridges. They have wonderful images and sentiments and I wish they would come out with more along this line. The lay outs are perfect and I'll be checking them out this evening. Thanks as always for sharing the "good stuff"!

  50. I love both of these cartridges. I would probably get the "My first few years" because I'm working on a scrapbook for my niece. I think it's awesome that Cricut is giving us layout ideas (I always have a hard time with that). I'm definitely going to try the free cuts today. These on my wishlist for sure.
