I would have bought them also for that price!! I have Thanksgiving and trim a tree. Have used both but trim a tree has intricut cuts and takes forever.

Mine is Opposites Attract. I got it because it seemed so popular that I thought I must be missing something. But, I wasn't - its useless (at least to me). It's still unopened and I'd love to sell it, Anybody interested? Flapper

I love Designers Calendar! If anyone is interested I have a few cards made with it on my blog - all my cricut cards are in a gallery, or listed by name in the sidebar of my blog. I used the shirt and tie just last weekLaugh

I don't think I have a worst. Now, don't ask me how many I HAVE NOT USED. Scared Scared Blushing Blushing That's a whole other story!

I've seen Jasmine mentioned here several times as one that is hard to work with and I can't recall using it, so now I am going to challenge myself to make something with it. Thanks!

Opposites attract is another one I bought the first time around but not the 2nd time. IF I remember correctly, when Cricut first came out, most of the carts released were alphabet cartridges. Weren't they? So between 2007 (when I bought and sold my first machine and 12 carts) and may 2011 (when I bought the E) they came out with lots of image carts. I'm pretty sure that was my biggest draw to buying another machine.

Coah'sNana-I'd love to see what you made using Folk Art.

Enfy's...I'm heading to your blog to see what you have made with Designers calendar. I am sure awesome things can be done with it if the inspiration strikes me upside the head.

I don't have Jubilee (although I've eyeballed it in Rewards). Have Opposites Attract, but I'm afraid it's on my NEVER USED list. Blushing Blushing

I haven't been around much this week, but I did hear you (and a few others) have been banished! Scared Scared WHEN DO YOU EXPECT TO BE BACK!?!?!?!?!?!? How will I ever know what NATIONAL DAY it is???????

I usually research carts very closely before I buy. But some times I find one cheap enough that it's worth the money JUST IN CASE I might need it some day. Glare

Please share what you know about the disney carts. I have them and never regretted buying them at all (buy one get one free deal).

Joyce



I really like the Designer's Calendar cart! There are tons of extras, and I've actually used the calendar numbers for my calendar at school.

I bought Freshly Picked off of ebay and have no clue why... I gave it to my mom who just got a Cricut a few months ago.

I regret buying new cartridges lately.... I have an 18 month old, teach full time, and have zero time to craft. And I just had to have Edge to Edge and Create a Friend. I've opened them but that's about it.

Great question!!

The cart I find was a waste...is FABULOUS FINDS. Got is for a xmas gift but have never found a use for it.
I love most of my carts though.

I'm a font junkie, so my stash is made up of font carts. My favorite at the moment is TYPE CANDY. Played with it when it was a free teaser on CCR and had to have it.

I'm also in agreement with the other regarding JASMINE.

Can you go back into the SHOP like you're going to RENEW and add that code in? I'm trying to remember, myself. It seems like that's what you have to do. Why don't you give PC a call? I'm sure they would help you a little faster than me "just trying to think" how you can get back in.

Sorry for all those who got kicked out who shouldn't have been kicked out.

Momtozsm....would love to know what your kids' names are; I'm assuming they start with "z", "s", "m"!

I loved reading through the posts here (just took time to do that today and have been passing over it).

I would encourage anyone wanting to sell their cartridges they don't especially like to FIRST go down to the FORUM JUMP drop down arrow and EXPLORE those cartridges you're not so in love with.

It never fails to amaze me what is on some of our cartridges. I LOVE CCR in that even if you don't have it downloaded to your computer to actually use you can EXPLORE all the cartridges and all the different tabs/layers that are on them.....like some have ICONS that show cuts you wouldn't expect to see on the BASIC tab, some have FRAMES, some have CHARMS, etc.!

For me, I wanted to see what was on FABULOUS FINDS. I have heard of the cartridge, but I don't have it and it's probably pretty impossible to find (maybe on eBay). DID YOU KNOW there's a really cute PAPER CLIP in Fabulous Finds?

Check out the various cartridges you "don't like" just to see if you can get a little inspiration from the posts others have made and their creations from these cartridges we don't think we like.

Hope you get some inspiration there.

I might have a few cartridges of my 65 or so that I don't particularly USE or LIKE all that much; but, when I go back to review all the cartridge has to offer (by using CCR tool....you can use the WEB VERSION (that allows you to play in CCR without downloading CCR to your computer) that PC gives to us FREE. LET ME WARN YOU, THOUGH, if your computer setup allows you to use CCR effectively, you will probably decide to keep those cartridges you liked in the first place. Of course, you can use them on your manual setups, also, without downloading CCR.

What a fun question. The one I thought I would love but struggle to use is Florals Embellished. Want to use it but it's quite labor intensive and the cuts are so...flat. Of course probably the WORST purchase was spending way too many Rewards Points and FAR too much in shipping costs (some of you remember the early days of the Rewards site) for Daisy Chain...I did use it once though LOL

Any of the imagine Texture and Patterns cartridges....but for regular, the Mickey Mouse images...you can never cut the images to fit correctly to make the elaborate layers of the characters. We are big Disney Fana and go tot he parks, thought it would be great to us in scrap booking but not what I expected at all. :(

Hiya Flo.

Have been hearing lots of great things about you and Madge. Glad your weekends are doing well BigGrin

Will be in touch soon... I just like to have a bit of a grumble about poor customer service now and again on these message boards. Maybe one day it will be read and dealt with. LOL
