A new era of scrapbooking (and cardmaking)!

In May I received a Cricut for my birthday. I thought, "great! I'll finally be able to finish my X scrapbook!" (see next post). Once I got my Cricut, I signed up for the Cricut message board and began talking to a lot of cool ladies who showed me the ropes. Robyn the Pink Stamper has been a HUGE inspiration to me. Her site (now known as My Pink Stamper), has hundreds of videos on card making and scrapbooking and teach you how to use the Cricut as well! Her cards are the reason why I began cardmaking and enjoy it very much (perhaps even more than scrapbooking)! Her blog is linked on the right hand side.

Since joining the MB and watching Robyn's videos, my supplies have increased quite a bit. I now have a Cricut Expression with five cartridges: Plantin' Schoolbook, Life's a Beach, Walk in my Garden, and more recently, Storybook and Wild Card. I have a Cuttlebug with 8 embossing folders, blue, green, and aqua skittles, Marta Stewart glitter, varying shades of Bazzill cardstock, tons of embellishments (including rub-ons and stickers), clear stamps, ink pads, ribbon, and rulers and adhesive. I'm sure this list will continue to grow! Everything you see on my blog is made with these supplies.

My favorite is the framed one. I need to use this cart more myself. Thanks for the inspiration. Please check my blog for a surprise.
