January Use It or Lose It Challenge

Good morning and Happy New Year! Hope you all have had a wonderful time spending it with loved ones. We will be having our Christmas get-together with my family today because my BFF was on call during Christmas. Really didn’t want to have two separate parties.

Last month, despite it being a very busy Holiday-month, I did pretty darn good using my stash. Here is what was used up last month:

  • Cloud 9 Design Rain Dots
  • Basic Grey Christmas brads
  • Basic Grey Fact or Fiction banners
  • Heidi Swapp paper pack
  • Making Memories metal words
  • Bella Blvd “Just add color”
  • CTMH collection pack

What I didn’t get a chance to use but will try it ONE more time this month are:

  • Pebbles gold glittered chipboard words
  • Reminisce “Its a dogs life” stickers

There was a couple of items from November that I got to use up as well:

  • Bling – different shades of purple
  • pre-made white bow

What I didn’t use and will be put in the bin is the LYB pocket with strips.

Okay..so new month AND new year. I have decided to pull my Cricut Carts out and challenge myself to use them. Now…I won’t “lose them”, but I do want to try my best at using each cart at least 3 times.

I counted and I have 12 physical cricut cartridges! Perfect! One for each month!

My physical Cricut carts are as follows:

  1. All Sports
  2. Freshly Picked
  3. Paper Doll Dress Up
  4. Storybook
  5. Opposites Attract
  6. Printing 101
  7. Picturesque
  8. Phrases
  9. Pink Journey
  10. My Quiet Book
  11. Creative Holiday Cards
  12. Bridal & Baby Soirees

I also have digital cartridges available via the Cricut Craft Room (CCR). Those are as follows:

  1. Cricut Alphabet **
  2. CCR Basics **
  3. Cricut Font/Basic Shapes **
  4. Formal Occasion
  5. H2O
  6. Life’s a Party
  7. Mustaches/Glasses
  8. Paper Pups

The digital carts marked with ** are the ones that automatically come available with CCR. I didn’t buy them. Also, Cricut will offer a free cartridge digitally for a week or so. Those are listed as they differ all the time.

So for this month, I’m pulling the “All Sports” cartridge and will use the Cricut Alphabet also.

Wish me luck and as always, I’ll try to stop by periodically throughout the month to showcase how I used those carts.

  1. Inspired to use more of my stash and try to combine lines as successfully as you do! Your Cricut work is great, especially the alpha font you used. Fun and cute LO.
