Keeping track of all those Cricut Carts

There is a lady that has done an awesome job of making a list for your cricut cartridges. You can go through an check the ones you have or the ones you want and print it off and keep up with it for your own records. After doing this I realized I have accumlated a total of 198 cricut cartridges. Wow!!!!! Maybe that explains why I have a hard time finding things. Thanks for sharing that link with us.

Reused SU Blocks

I saw this done on a yahoo video from Luvleescrappin. She had used a peice of wood and cut down to size. However, I had several Stampin Up Blocks that I had not mounted my stamps on as I've started to unmount all my stamps. I only have a few of the Tim Holtz inks but really like them so I decided to give my SU blocks a new life instead of throwing them away. Luckily I had 8 that were all the same size.
1. First I added some strips of double sided foam tape to the black of the block.
2. I then added the rough loopy side of velcro on top of the foam tape, you can use alittle glue to if you like but I don't use them that much so I will just be careful.
3. Peice of felt cut to size to fit block will attach to velcro.
4. The container is a small DMC thread box that I got along time of go that was sitting in a box, you can use larger ones if you want more blocks.

As the SU blocks have little grooves on the sides so I don't need a handle when I'm using the inks.

I will then label on top which color is on the pad so that when I look in the container I can just grab what I need.

Altered Necklace

I have always loved the monogrammed shell jewelry but I never seem to think to buy it when I'm looking for things, well while out the other day shopping I saw a lady wearing her monogrammed shell necklace which reminded me I need to look for one. Went to Catos and there hanging in the clearance section was a gorgeous pink necklace, and the lights came on. I could make my own. I used the letter B from Splish Splash cricut cartridge. Now I want one in every color.

Mistake turned Good

I was going to print some 8 x 11 paper from a downloadable file that I saved, forgot to write down her name to give credit, however I printed out a 4 x 6 so I turned it into a card.
