  5. I purchased a Cricut, but I didn't use it for quite some time. So I had just George, since it came with the machine, but when I used it for the first time on a few pages for a baby book, I was hooked! My first official cart was Forever Young. Thanks for the giveaway, Suzyque! This is the first time I've participated in trying to win blog candy! =D

  6. Hello, I just got my Cricut cake just before Christmas and did not have time until just recently to to use it.

  17. My first project was a card and I ended up not sending it - I keep it on the wall in my craft room to remind myself "how far I've come", lol. It was awful! The first cart I remember buying was Accent Essentials, when you could only get it with the Expression? But I already had my bug so I bought AE on Ebay for ALOT of money! ;)

  20. I've had mine for about a year and a half. My first project was a baby shower card, which regrettablly I forgot to take a picture of. My first cartridge a bought was I think Paper Doll Dress Up. I went on a cartridge buying frenzy at first so I'm not real sure on that.
    Thanks for the opportunity... Betsy

  21. I love my Cricut! A friend allowed me to borrow her Cricut to make words and pictures for portfolios I made for each of my students at the end of last school year. It was less than 2 weeks later that I bought my own Cricut! I think the first cartridge I bought was Sans Serif.

  22. My first project was for a friend who was getting married. We cut a million numbers out (her wedding date) for a "Save the Date" card. And we were using my cartridge that came with the Cricut, Don Juan.

  23. Shoot.. here is my email just in case

  24. Wow! I can't remember back that far LOL! I had my baby bug for a while before I had my Expression and it did not come with George... it came with Printing Press & Cuttin' Up and maybe another cartridge. The first project I think I made was a card... I make a lot of those ;)

  25. I just got my Cricut for Christmas this past December. The first cartridge I bought was Indie Art. My first project were random cards. I am making a box of different occasion cards for my mom for her birthday! :)

  26. The very first cartridge that I purchased was celebration and my very first project was a LO of my brother-in-law James retirement celebration in July 2006.
