Cricut Cartridge Organization and Give-away!!

Thanks to HappyHappyJoyJoy and Greenbean on the Cricut Message Board for this fabulous Cricut Cartridge Storage Idea!!  I was one who never wanted to part with the boxes, but they were getting out of control in my Nook!  Ordered some 5x8 bags, a Clip-It-Up system, some pink cardstock and VOILA - my cartridges are organized!!

I LOVE this system - I can easily spin it around to see what carts I have.  The titles are labeled on both sides so I can see them whether I am spinning to the left or right.  If you like seeing the images on the back of the boxes, you can print them out from the Cricut site on 4x7 cardstock and stick it in each bag - I have most of them printed out in a 3-ring reference binder but may end up doing that eventually.

Ok, so here is the deal - I had to buy way too many bags and paper so I have lots left over.  These are thick 4mm bags so they won't rip.  Just become a follower of my blog and leave a comment below for a chance to win enough bags and pink cardstock to hold 100 cartridges (give away does not include the Clip-it-up system, just the bags and pink cardstock).  Thanks for playing along and happy crafting!!

That is a wonderful system--the boxes do take up a lot of room and my scrapbook space is in smaller area. i love to have things organized. Thanks for the opportunity of winning.

grichards06 said...

I have a clip it up for my stamps but as I've only just invested in a pink expression I don't have that many carts yet but I'm working on it! This storage idea would really work for me as I have very little space for the chunky boxes. Thanks for the chance to win. =D

iluvmybugs said...

Love the storage idea! I love your postings on the pages you have created, too, and the info on the Eclips. I just heard about it, I own a Cricut and Cuttlebug, was wondering if I really need another cutter. Sounds fun, though, and tempting! Thanks
