I love my cricut and my carts but sometimes I get caught up in the "hype". I see people rave about one and see some awesome projects but have trouble admitting that it is not for me. I see amazing things with Happy Hauntings and I have actually bought it twice but I am debating returning it. Does this happen to you?

Thanks,

Several of them. I don't get it. But then I'm not into Cutesy stuff. I'm more of a distress it and mess it girl. So the Carts Like Pagoda, Cindy, loo, I don't get em.

But that is why we have a gazillion carts so we all can have our styles represented. Time for some more serious, realistic, cuts :D

There are plenty.... like the newest holiday solutions carts, the fall carts, create a critter, once upon a princess, paisley, I could go on and on but these are just ones that don't interest me. But that's why we are all so versatile and make some fantastic things with carts that don't interest us per se, but others who love the cart will come up with something cute. I like looking at what others come up with even with the carts I'm not interested in. It's really fun an interesting.

Hi!
I agree, I don't find any interest in Robotz, Mini Monsters, and several others. I ended up with Once Upon a Princess because it was part of a Costco package, the castle is neat.

I am glad there are so many choices out there.

You mean your suppose to USE them?! Uh oh... Knew I was doing something wrong. I just look and drool alot.

See, I have this problem... I don't like or want alot of them. Then I "see" something someone did and convince myself that I do indeed "need" it...

So to answer your question, yep! I have lots of them that I shouldn't have bought but now have.

I don't necessarily regret them, just that I get a chuckle out of not using them like I thought I would. Guess I get caught up in the fever.

Have you guys seen all of the extras on these carts? I don't cut out the actual paper dolls, but I love the extras!

Paisley. I've had the cartridge since Black Friday because my daughter thought it was cute. I don't think I've ever used it. I keep looking through the book, but I always end up picking a cut from another cartridge.

Yes, and for Happy Hauntings! I have tried multiple times to buy it and I just can't get into it! I don't really like scary Halloween stuff and am not convinced about drippy fonts, so even though everyone seems to love it, this is the first time I have not wanted to run out and get it!

Everyone seems obsessed with getting 3 birds on parade. I don't get that. A whole cart full of birds doesn't appeal to me, no matter how cute they are.

create a critter. I don't get it. The carts I love never seem to be used though. A child's year is my favorite!

Those silhouettes remind me of horror films for some reason. Creepy little soul-less children

Simply Charmed -- there's a whole raft of stuff on that cart that should NOT have a face!!!! Creepy! (I may end up buying it, and I'll just give the hide/contour button on the Gypsy a workout!) I wonder why they gave all those great images FACES????? Somebody in the design area is absolutely certifiable!

I stayed away from the Paperdolls ones thinking I would never ever make paperdoll but ya gotta go look at the book it has tons of really awesome things, clouds, frogs, potion bottles that could be used for pottery, great trees, haunted house/castle, dog, cats just lots of unrelated paperdoll stuff.

They really should have emphasized what is all on this cartridge as I think many would use it more picket fences, haystacks I could go on and on. Love it alot!

I don't have much use for Pagoda, Destinations, Robotz, Superman, Blackletter, and some of those older solutions carts. And, dare I say it...TBBM. I got it from rewards but sold it on ebay. I really don't think I'd ever use it for anything.

I love this thread. First of all I drool over all my carts. Most of them I use- some more than others. My favs are create a critter and life is a beach. So what do I not like. Well it would be blasphemous (please correct spelling if necessary)to dislike any of them. The only one that I like less than the others is opposites attract. Maybe I should make an effort to use it next. Not likely when I have 174 that I like.
