Some examples of the new Cheerful Seasons and Reminisce Cricut – CM Cartridges

I had a little time to play work with the newest CM products and LOVE the new CM – Cricut cartridges!  Most of the cuts on these have just a few layers and only a couple have teeny weeny pieces!  I am so glad for that!  Here are a few cuts I made with CM cardstock and the Reminisce Cricut cartridge.img_0292

When Provo Craft updates their website I’ll be able to link these cartridges to my Gypsy or use Design Studio to weld multiples of the same border together to make a larger, continuous one (vs. putting separate identical cuts together to make a border.)

I did a quick layout with each of the new Power Palettes.  I’m a pretty simple scrapbooker and love using the Designer Print papers from the Power Palettes –I they are very nice on their own and most need very little (sometimes nothing at all) added to them. 

Layout below uses elements from the Reminisce Power Palette and “Cherish” cut with the Reminisce Cricut Cartridge.

Elements used on this page include Designer Print paperpaper flowers, paper frame, paper ribbon, Medium Photo Corners and Foam Squares


Just a few cuts made with the Cheerful Seasons Cricut cartridge.  The little bluebird has a bit of detail added from the new limited edition CM Chalking Inks.


Thank goodness for the Precision Point Adhesive Pen and Pick Up Square…those things are perfect to use with the thin/tiny die cut pieces. 

Another simple layout below featuring the Cheerful Power Palette.  I used Cheerful Tone-on-Tone Paper, paper ribbon and a paper tag.  The page was laid out using the new Page Planner Templates.  “Snow”, the snowflake and “2004” were cut from CM cardstock using the Cheerful Seasons Cricut cartridge!

I will be working more with the Cricut Cartridges but will have to wait a bit to work again with the new Power Palettes.    I packed them up & sent them with Michelle P.  who is having a “Party on the Go” – it’s like a catalog party but with lots of products to see, feel & try out instead of just  looking at the catalog!  Contact me if you’re interested in hosting an event & earn DOUBLE hostess rewards in August.
