Okay, obviously some of you have (or HAVE HAD, Got the Goods Dawn! Wink
a Cricut.

I'm just getting aquainted with mine, and would really appreciate any cartridge
recommendations you many have. It came with Schoolbook, and I got Storybook on ebay, and now am thinking about that Graphically Speaking? I think that's the name of it.

Any favorites? OR, probably just as important, any you would advise AGAINST--through personal use or through the grapevine, whatever.

Joined a Cricut yahoo group, but there are about 6 million people in it, and 60 million posts a day, so it's not too fun trying to wade through that overload of info!

(And no, I will not be cutting any fondant with my Cricut. Will leave that to you, Robin!)

I only have about 6. I love the home accents because I cut alot of shapes. I have several alphabets, but really only use all mixed up most of the time.

Oooh LOVE my bug!!! I have about 30 cartridges and many more on my wish list! Smile

Right now, I find I use Calligraphy Collection, Home Decor & Storybook a LOT! Smile I think a lot depends on your own personal style. I like flourishes & flowers, so those work well for me. Smile

I knew I asked the right people.

Thanks, everybody-you've definitely given me a place to start.

Robin, Storybook has LOTS of flourishes, by the way!

My favorite is Opposites Attract, which has a cursive & print alphabet on it. They look really cool overlapped.

I have the Tinkerbell cart. and can not for the life of me cut one out and layer it right. It always cuts the pieces different sizes. Sad

OK, you probably know this, but I'll mention it anyway... make sure you don't have real dial size selected. Also, if it keeps doing it, you might want to exchange it... it could be defective. I have it and cut out a few fairies for my girls and they turned out really cute. Smile

It's amazing how each cartridge can do so many things, all the variety.

Do any of you have a favorite place to shop for them on-line?
