  19. Wow, this layout is incredible and you sure used a lot of cartridges! From what I can see, you used PDDU for Santa & the bag, Create a Critter for the reindeer, Christmas trees and the lights, Winter Woodland for the sleigh, Christmas solutions for the wreath & bow, and Celebrate with Flourish for the Merry Christmas. So I'm guessing five. Now I'm not sure whether the photo corners are a punch or cricut, but I'm dying to know because they are gorgeous and I would love to use them on some pages! Again, awesome job and this guessing game was fun :)

  28. I am no good at guessing, because I think your genius art is incredible and I can't imagine being able to create things so gorgeous, but I'll guess you used 4 different carts to make this.

  29. Melinda I'm just amazed each time I see your beautiful creations. I've owned a machine since black friday and only tried it a few times and have never achieved a fraction of the results of your creations you create. Girl send some of your creations to some of these layout/pagekit places. You would be hired in no time with you creating your own designs (not using the Cricut carts). As for the number of carts used...........Paper Dolls, Create a Critter, Picturesque, Winter Wonderland,

  37. I just love all your layouts. You do amazing work. I know you used at least six, PDDU, Christmas Cheer, Winter Woodland, Celebrate with Flourish, Create a Critter, Christmas Solutions, and I think at least two more. Lacy Labels or Cindy Loo, Joys of the Season. So my guess is going to be 8 cartridges. Eight!

  38. Wow you really used a lot of cuts when you get to trying to find them all. Very inspiring. I couldn't find them all but I'll take my guess I think you used 6 carts. PDDU, Winter Woodland, Create a Critter, Celebrations, Picturesque, and I can't find the merry Christmas but know I've seen it. I'll keep looking. I'm probably missing some but I had fun exploring the cartridges.
    thanks

  39. Melin,
    I am just getting into your files and stuff. I like your dress form enchanted page and the other detailed flowers. I need to learn a WHOLE lot more to do as beautiful job. I am eager to learn from you.

    Question to Melin and others: Do I need the largest Cricut to do most of these of can I do it with the smaller first cruicut? There are so many computer assisted programs out there it is comfusing to get started.

  40. Melin, you are way too clever. This double layout is totally amazing, you have just the perfect eye for detail - I LOVE it, and would be proud to display this in my home with photo's of my gorgeous Granddaughters on it - You have used SIX cartridges, with a VERY clever use of two of them - don't want to say too much here - they are Winter Woodland, Paper Doll Dress Up, Create A Critter, Christmas Cheer, Picturesque and Celebrate with Flourish - I wish I had half your talent.....

    Hugs xx

  48. What a great layout. I have searched the cartridges and this is what I came up with, PaperDoll Dress Up, Clebrate With Flourish, Christmas Cheer, Winter Wonderland, Create-A-Critter, and I think Picturesque, not sure about that one, and possible George and Basick Shapes for the photo matts. That is a total of 7 cartridges. I sure hope I win it as it is adorable.
