Spotlight Sunday

Good Morning Everyone,

We here at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog  have a few more Design Team Members that we want you to get to know better. Like I have said in the past I love to see what other people have for their top 5 go to cartridges. Again I will be spotlighting 2 more Design Team Members and next week I'll share what the overall top 5 or more cartridges are.

 First up today is Nikki and her blog is Crafty Calamities. She has a fabulous blog if you haven't taken the time to check it out I hope you do so, you will not be disappointed.

Here is her crafting space:

Here are the answers she submitted:

What are your top 5 go to Cricut Cartridges?
1 Elegant Edges – This is the only cartridge I have ordered straight from the US on release, it cost me an extra £15 duties on receiving it but it was SO worth it !! I use it all the time it is beautiful
2 Cricut Sampler – Is brill for its random assortment of images – babies etc - my collection of cartridges isn't huge so its a good all rounder for me
3 Paper Dress up  Dolls and Everyday Paper Dolls are favourite's not only for the fabulous dolls who can become who ever I need them to be but also because they are great for using the little extra’s on lots of projects
4 I go back to George and Basic shapes time after time for perfect matting and layering
5 I love the quirky images and little faces in  the Simply Charmed Cartridge – fab for kids cards
What are your favorite adhesives?
I can’t live without Pinflair Glue Gel – silicone glue without any silicone !! – no smell and kind to my hands
I also love photo glue so forgiving if it gets on the papers cause it just rubs back off
How do you organize your cartridges?
I need to work on this as my collection is growing fast, they are in a blue polka dot bag which hangs in my under stairs cupboard at the moment
What is one of your favorite creative feature key?
Bit boring here but I love the shadow key for creating thin borders when matting and layering, HOWEVER, my new expression 2 came yesterday so I have a whole new set of sizes to play with Yippee!!! It’s so big compared to my bug major reorganisation of my craft space coming up – maybe I should do a before and after lol !!
Next up is Kate and her blog is Small bits of Paper. She also has an amazing blog. 

Her craft space which also doubles as an office is being used to store college items for her daughter. She will be reclaiming it soon.

Here are answers she submitted:

What are your top 5 go to Cricut Cartridges?
I use all sorts of cartridges - but rely heavily on George and Basic Shapes.  Lately, I've also been getting a lot of use out of Elegant Edges.  And, based on the counts on the tags on my blog posts, the other three would be Create a Critter, Mini Monograms, and my favourite, Doodlecharms.
What are your favourite adhesives?
Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and Zig Squeeze and Roll pen.  I will use my ATG for larger projects, but am not generally a fan of it for card-making. 

How do you organize your cartridges?
What is one of your favourite creative feature key?
The shadow!  I love using shadows with my cuts.
Well that is all for today. I hope you are having an amazing summer and enjoying the rest of it. Now don't forget to join us tomorrow for another Challenge Me Monday.

Happy Crafting,
