Here are her answers.

What are your top 5 go to Cricut Cartridges?

Art Philosophy
Tag, Bags, Boxes and more 2
Wild Card 2
Walk in My Garden
Doodlecharms - oldie but such a goodie

What are your favorite adhesives?

My favorite is Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue, never fails. Doesn't buckle card and holds the heaviest embellishments.
I also use Glossy Accents and my ATG Gun.

How do you organize your cartridges?

Stacked on top of one and other at the end of my craft desk....the ones I like to use most are placed easiest to reach! Not the best organization!

What is one of your favorite creative feature key?

The card feature on a cartridge. On my Expression the creative feature key I like most is the multi-cut.....I do not have a deep housing blade but with multi-cut can use my ordinary blade for the same thing.

I do lots of different kinds of crafts, but it is my Cricut I use most. I love using my Cricut and I am so pleased to be part of the FCCB design team.

Lastly  is Judy and her blog is Crafty Jar.

Here are Judy's answers to the questions we asked her.

What are your top 5 go to Cricut Cartridges?
My favorite carts are Create a Critter, Everyday Paperdolls, Elegant Edges, Lyrical Letters and I have been using Stand and Salute a lot lately. 

What are your favorite adhesives?
I have quite a collection of adhesives. 
Scotch ATG - I rave about this so much that all the ladies that come to my Michael's class are getting them.
Scotch Quick Dry - I love how fast it dries and that it dries clear.
Zig 2-way glue pens - For attaching small cut out pieces
I love Fabric-tack its like liquid hot glue, I use it on metals, ribbon or another hard to adhere embellishments. 

How do you organize your cartridges?
I have all my cartridges linked to my Gypsy so I really don't used them except for flipping through the handbooks when I am looking for an image. I do have all the carts in their boxes on a book shelf in my scraproom. The shelves have them 2 deep because I own 97 full carts and 8 solutions carts which I store in boxes that look like double cartridges.

What is one of your favorite creative feature key?
My favorite feature key is the Shadow Buttons. I like being able to use a shadow behind an image, but I absolutely love the feature for making the base for shape cards. I also love any carts that have an Accessories Button.  You get so many more images on carts that have that feature.
Wow, these are some amazing ladies, I hope you get to know better and give them some love.  If you haven't checked out their blog do so you will definitely be inspired. Now don't forget to stop by tomorrow for a new Challenge Me Monday.
Happy Crafting,
