Cricut: The Official Blog
Sunday, January 23, 2011



This week's blog candy is... a CARTRIDGE!!! Woohoo!! It's the Winter Frolic cartridge to help you scrap a few more winter pics before Spring arrives. To enter, just make sure you're a follower of this blog and leave a comment on today's post. Plus you can come back every day through Friday for more chances!


Check out this brand new layout kit by the one and only Bling Queen - Wendy Lawrence. Rainy Days sure wouldn't get me down if they were always this gorgeous, that's for sure! See below for details and ordering info...


This layout would be so fantastic for pictures of your little one in their rain gear, stomping in puddles, or even playing in the garden. And it's gender neutral too, which is always helpful! Included in the complete kit will be all of the patterned papers, cardstock, ribbon, etc that you need to create the layout. Plus you'll get our detailed yet easy to follow directions with Cricut Cut Chart and well-organized written instructions, with plenty of color photographs.


To complete this project as shown, you will need the following supplies: Cricut Expression and mat, Simply Charmed cartridge, brown chalk ink, white gel pen, 3D pop dots, Diamond Stickles, plus basic tools and adhesive. Cuttlebug with Distressed Stripes embossing folder is optional.


The complete kit is $25, or you can order the directions for $10. To order, just email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com, and include your state and payment preference (PayPal or check). This kit will be ready for shipping on February 25th.


Shipping is available as always.  Shipping in California is $5, and ranges from $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location.  We're always happy to combine shipping when ordering multiple kits, and you'll never pay more than $10 shipping, even if ordering several.  Keep that in mind because we're going to have this Rainy Day kit and 3 others available for shipping in February!!


Don't forget to leave a comment on today's post to be entered for this week's blog candy!!


And be sure to come back tomorrow as I will be showing pictures of the brand new "Tuff Girl" layout kit that uses the Rock Princess cart. This is my come-back project, and it's ENTIRELY a fundraiser for Team Monique for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Want a sneak peek? Here ya go...
