Thrifty Thursday at ScrapTiffany

Hello all!! I am here today doing another Thrifty Thursday with Scraptiffany!! 

How many of you have spent hundreds of dollars on Cricut cartridges?? Come on... be honest.... your hubby isn't reading my blog!! I have, and the saddest part of it all is that I have not used so many of them!! There have been those "gotta have" carts and I go and get it.... and it is still sitting there.... untouched. 

Well, I have something fun (cheap...cheaper than carts!) to share with you. I am on the design team for Cooking With Cricut and Melin creates files that you can either buy as digi stamps or cutting files. If you go to her page she explains a bit more on the different cutting files she can provide when you purchase. 

These are some of the layouts that I have created using her files in SGV format. I cut them using my Cricut and the Make The Cut software. 

BC Awareness Bear

Bear as Elf and Puppy in present

Gigerbread house 09 and Joy sign

Bear with Cider Mill

Bear Baking

Bear and Turkey Friends

Mouse Couple Dancing

Scarecrow Girl on Pumpkin
Under each picture you will find the name of the cutting file I used. You can go here to purchase PAGEKITS
 Make sure you go visit even if you are not buying, she often has freebies!!

Now, I want to make sure you get as excited as I do when playing with these files.... so I am doing a giveaway!!! One lucky person will receive the BEAR BAKING file. Yep!!! Just leave a comment telling me how many Cricut carts you own that you have NOT used! I know..... it's bad... isn't???

Thanks for taking a peek!!!

Those are so cute! I own about 63 or so cartridges but I use them... I think there is only a handful that I haven't used yet... but a couple are brand new :) I LOVE my Cricut!

Renee said...

Abby, your layouts are great! Thanks for sharing!! Oh, I have six cartridges; there is only 1 that I haven't used yet. 'Hoping to find another one that has a shape I want-the famous scalloped circle. Abby, if you know of the cart. that has that shape, could you please let me know? Thanks so much!!

Oh I just love all of these layouts!!!! Very inspirational I want to go make some layouts now. I probably have about 6 or 8 carts that are untouched LOL! I just made a big order and I haven't had the time to use them all yet =( If only there were more hours in the day! Have a great day!


Hola Abby!!! Yo tengo solo 7 cartuchitosss y me creerás que no los había usado porque tenía el scal jajaja, pero se descompuso mi compu y ahora los he usado mucho!!!! Aunque solo los de letras y cajitas :))) Besos, me encantan tus páginas!!!! :)

Super cute layouts. You did a great job! I have 15 cartridges and then I found SCAL and MTC and haven't bought one since. I've even been considering selling my carts on EBAY since I haven't used one except the one in the machine for over a year! LOL... Thanks for the chance to win!

Your layout are absolutely beautiful, I just recently came across your blog and am enjoying it. I have at least 35 cartridges that are still in the package, isn't that terrible?

Brenda said...

I am so bad. I am like you. I have to have, and they still sit in the plastic they came in. I have 35 or moreof them. I also have the expression and have yet to use it. : (

I have around 40 carts and just got 2 in the mail today. I have yet to use 5 carts, not including todays carts that came in the mail, but I decided I am going to give my sister-n-law some as I am giving her my cricut as a gift because I use my Expression.
