Help celebrate Cricut's 100th cartridge—Winter Woodland! That’s right, they reached 100 cartridges. As a thank you, they want to give away 100 cartridges over the next five weeks (20 per week).
Here’s how it will work.
Each week they will be posting a thread. When you respond to the thread you will be entered to win. You can enter once by replying and you can enter a second time by posting on your blog about the celebration and linking back to the cartridge product page. Here is the link to include in your blog. Once you’ve posted on your blog with the link back you can post again to this thread.

Here's a card I made using my new Cricut Weddings Solutions cart. I embossed the cake using the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder and I think it was cut at about 3" twice, once in white and then in black. I cut the cake stand off of the white layer and placed the cake on the black layer. I added some faux pearls, heart brads and ribbon, and used my new Swiss Dots folder as well. The cake was adhered using dollar store dimensionals and the stamp is also from the dollar store. I lightly inked the cake edges with black and added some Icicle stickles to the heart. I can't wait to make more of these!

I recently returned to work and was pleasantly surprised to receive a greeting card with a gift card from my staff to celebrate the birth of my son. I made this card as a thank you and was so happy to make use of one of my latest purchases, the Cricut Beyond Birthdays cartridge. I love that it has "Merci" since I am the French teacher! I can't remember the size I used but I'm guessing it was 2". This was also my first card using the Quickcuts A2 embossing folder called Polka Dots that I ordered off of Ebay. Isn't it fun? I used the Fiskars Threading Water border punch and recycled the bow from a treat bag. I love how this card is so simple and fun!
