Do you think Cricut is going to come out with a cartridge geared towards project life?

Every time I browse the silhouette store I just can't believe how much stuff they have for project life.

I wondered that myslef. Tho the last time I looked at their board majority of layouts were traditional style.

"If they were smart they would....."

This made me smile! I hope they make a cartridge...I just want it to be easy without having to think about it. I don't want to have to go into the "craft room" and do anything there.

That is way I bought a cricut, for the CTMH cartridges and 12x12, sometimes I wish I had the cameo, but the original silhouette is fine for now.

I would love if Cricut came out with a Project Life cartridge but I am skeptical. Yes, online Project Life is HUGE and now it's made a debut on HSN and soon in retail stores, there is a better chance but there is a large majority of the scrapbook community that doesn't know what Project Life is.

It's kinda funny, my LSS had Smashbooks before anyone else, they got Sn@p and now "Photo Freedom" from Echo Park but after years of mentioning Project Life to them they still give me a blank stare.

I've got my fingers crossed. Although I have pretty much stopped purchasing Cricut cartridges, I would consider buying one that had a lot of PL application.

However, I must say that I do use the cartridges that I have a whole lot for PL. So, I'm very satisfied.

Care to share what you've been doing? I have just repaired my Cricut and am inspired to use it but haven't used it at all for my PL thus far.

If you need the cards at 3x4 or 4x6 how would you do that on the Cricut? Also if they give some phrases the problem is you don't want to use the same ones over & over in your book. Would love to see what they could do with that type of thing though.

Sure. I have used the following cartridges:

Going Places (I just purchased it for PL) - has the "Potty People" icons, phrases like "Road Trip" and car/travel icons.

Lyrical Letters (Love the "Connected" font for PL)

Art Philosophy (Close to My Heart Exclusive - and worth it) - great font

Artiste(Close to My Heart Exclusive - and worth it)- great font

Tie The Knot (I did a wedding album in the divided pocket pages)

Sentimentals

Stretch Your Imagination

Wild Card


I use fonts to make my Monthly title cards, and the year.
I have cut borders, fishtail banners, quote blocks, tabs, triangle banners, arrows (several cartridges have arrows), stars, snowflakes, hearts, scalloped circles (love to use those then cut a plain circle center out of grid paper to make a journaling spot) just to name a few.

Phrases: Family (Art Phil), I Do (Tie The Knot), Kiss (Tie The Knot), Yours Truly (Sentimentals), Just Married (Tie The Knot), Happily Ever After (Tie the Knot - this phrase is also on the cartridge of the same name), Party (Tie the Knot)

Recently I made a PL journaling card about a tick and used the cartridge to cut out a spider (looks just like a tick) and the word "Eek!" from Artiste.

I pulled out my handbooks and studied them a lot to find cuts perfect for Project Life.

I agree and actually surprised at the scrappers I have met that never heard of it. I am on my 4th year of PL but it seems like it has only started gaining popularity this year.

I would love to see a cricut cart geared around PL
