This is going to be a challenge for all of us. We all have carts we have not used in a while or new ones we have bought and have not used yet. I am guilty on both! So lets all try and use some of those cartridges.

We will have a project due every Monday. We will use the letters of the alphabet. Use a cartridge closest to that letter.

Let's have fun and see what we can come up with! BigGrin

I'm game!!! Does someone choose the weeks letter? or Do we choose? Either way-choose a letter. I haven't used my Cricut much till the last year and really making things these last six.

Choose a letter???

Baxter, I took your idea and figured we would start with A and use what ever cartridge you have named close to that letter. I also named the thread A week. Is that ok?

This is going to be so much fun. I really think I am going to get more use out of my carts now.

I needed to make a card for my niece. I probably would have gone to one of my normal carts, instead I thought out of the box because of this challenge and used a cart I would never have before.

I used the tag from All Mixed Up including the shadow layer and circle. The scalloped circle is from Easter 2010.

Julie, ACY is one of my favorites! Love I can't wait to see what you make. If you need help posting, let me know. This actually the first picture I have ever posted here on the cricut boards. It was not too bad. Flapper

Sounds interesting. I am like many others in that I so need to use my cartridges. I read the post on the main board. As of this writing it is Wednesday. So would this be for Monday 9/12 or would that start the next letter?

I am going to do this as well. I will be using the Accent Essential cartridge to make a With Sympathy card for a friend that lost her 45 yo husband on friday. And I am also going to use Animal Kingdom to make a bookmark for my 7 yo daughter who loves to read.

Are you going to set this up as a Blog Hop or is it a challenge and we'll post our creations here?

I had a few minutes last night so I sat down with my Gypsy and created a card using Alphalicious. Then I started scheming and dreaming up ideas for the B cartridge week! It was awesome to look through some of those cartridges and see what they have on them. I guess I just bought and then thought "I'll use it later" and now it's later!

Lori, I saw your post on the main board. I signed up for that also, but this challenge originated from a different post on the main board. JJMM had posted about she wanted to use the carts she had, instead of buying more. (bascially, I think? Blushing ) I suggested starting a challenge for this because I know I needed this and figured there were more like me! LOL So this here is for the challenge to use a cart, closest to the letter of the week and then post your creation. I am hoping the OP on the blog hop still does it because I would like to join that also. BigGrin

Looking foward to your creation. BigGrin

I am in! I started by seeing what I had for the whole alphabet, the only letters I don't have are J, K, Q, U, V, X, Y... but I have plenty of multiples to make up.

I will be doing All Sports for "A"

Lori, the cards came out adorable! So jealous you have Art Philosophy! Laugh

Mandy, I know there are some letters we are obviously not going to have. But I was looking on my gypsy today and I have 4 or 5 C carts!Blushing Flapper I think I will be able to fill in somewhere. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

So far I have made 2 cards. I used the Accent Essentials for the With Sympathy card. I used the Accent Essentials and Alphalicious for the Birthday Card for my niece that turned 12 today. I am still working on the bookmark for my daughter and will post this later on tonight.

Ok so as I was posting happy birthday to my niece on her fb wall I saw that she turned 13 and not 12. What a bad aunt I am. I thought she was 2 when 9/11 happened but she had turned 3 when 9/11 happened. So I made another card for her so here it is.
