  5. Way to score!!! I knew all of your hard work and dedication to the Cricut and your fans would pay off. They should supply you with lots of goodies for as long as you do this!!
    Congrats to YOU!!! Good things happen to GOOD people and you are Good person.
    I am grateful for all of your hard work, and the understanding that some of us are inventors and some of us need to see something first in order to create, which by the way includes me.

  7. Cannot wait to get this cartridge

    I do the local Marine Corps League
    yearly scrapbook. This looks like
    it will make the pages reallly "pop" and save me alot of
    money as I buy too many embellishments.

    Thanks again and keep up the great
    work.

  8. Wow!! Congrats on getting the cart early! It looks like you can do so much with it. I can't wait to get it!

  9. Great Job Pinky! Maybe PC should give you commission, as I'm sure your videos will be making lots of sales for PC! Thanks for all your great videos!

  10. I am so glad that Provo Craft is rewarding you for all of your effort! You, after all, do a great job of promoting their product for free!
    I was looking at that cartridge on a website that is taking preorders. I thought it would be great for little boy scrap pages. If I remember correctly, there are a bunch of guns and planes. It would also be great for Memorial Day scrap pages. We have a big parade for Memorial Day here. Also, a trip to Washington, D.C. I think I could find a lot of uses for the cartridge.
    Once again, I just want to say that I am thrilled for you! I am glad to know that Provo Craft is rewarding you! Your videos are often the reason I decide to purchase a cartridge. I bought both Hello Kitty carts, the Storybook Cart, the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cart, Wildcard....you get the idea...all because of your videos!

  11. That is wonderful! They have made a lot of money via your enabling us! LOL I am glad to see that they are showing appreciation for that :)

  12. Congrats Robyn! So glad that PC recognized the great job that you do with their cartridges! I was thinking that you could also laminate this project and make great placemats for the 4th of July! Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and videos...you're the best!

  13. Oh my gosh, lol! You are, like, officially the coolest person I know! :) That was so awesome of Provo Craft!

  14. Robyn - I am elated that you are getting some "perks" to work with for Provo Craft. They should hire you because you are an amazing instructor! I can't wait for this cartridge as our son just got out of the Marines after 13 years. He is a single Dad and it was getting too hard to raise a 5 year old being in the military. I have tons of pics and this cartridge will be great. Looking forward to what you are going to show us next. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. I am so glad that PC let you show us the new cartridge. You really deserve it too for showing us all the cool little tricks for our Cricuts. Will you be previewing Simply Sweet also?

  17. You are a lucky duck! I was even thinking that you could probably laminate the flag and make table place settings...

  21. My 5yo son is obsessed with all things military! I would love to be able to create things for his scrapbook pages! Also, if you have some pictures of your sons, you could scrap the song "Lord's Army" with some cute boy pics using this cart!!

  23. Love the flag! What about making invites for Labor Day cookouts, July 4th, Memorial Day, etc. You could also use it for scrapping pages about parades or vacations to other states. I'm glad you got the chance to preview the cart - good for you!

  29. Robyn, I want to give you a big congrats, too! I am so glad that ProvoCraft realized that you are a great critcut teacher and enthusiast. You are not afraid to try something and if it does not work out or you need to adjust it along the way you take us through the thought process of how to make it work. I love that about your videos! I hope PC gives you ALL of their new cartridges because the more I see you use them, the more I buy of their cartridges.

  32. PC sure have their head on straight. They picked such a helpful person for this job. I don't know if I want this cartridge but if I keep looking at your projects I may sway over to the got to have it catagory. I love the trucks on it. OH! pls make us a fathers day card using this cartridge using a plane, truck or soldier. That will be nice.

  33. Yay! PC is giving you product to show us! Love your blog and videos. If I may, I'd like to make a request. Could you show us how to make 12x12 borders and maybe some cool backgrounds like all of the lazer cut and lace papers on the market? Thanks so much and have a great week!

  34. Robyn, The great thing about you, is that, you make things that we all feel we can make. You are simple, yet your projects are so cute. I always think, "why didn't I think of that". I am so happy that PC sent you the carts. That is wonderful. I am gonna have to add this one to my Wish List. I am super Patriotic, so this will be so much fun! Thanks for your hardwork and indspiration.

  35. You are so deserving of previewing a cart! Hope PC keeps doing that for you. Already preordered S&S, so excited about it. I was thinking you could laminate the flag you made for place mats for July 4th, Memorial and Labor Days, Veterans Day, etc.

  36. Wow, that is awesome. We have always said that PC needs to pay you for the business that you bring them. Congrats.

  47. Congratulations on getting Salute Flag & Simply Sweet carts from Provo Craft. Thks to your videos, I am now seriously looking at ordering both of these carts pre-order & online, as my hubby, dad, uncle & grandad were all ex-service men, and I also luv butterflies.
    Thks, also to Provo Craft, for letting Robyn, get to play & do demo videos of these carts.

  48. Robyn, thanks for showing this cartridge. I hope you'll be able to demo it many more times. My son is going into the army August 30th so I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of it, mine's on preorder.

  49. I love the idea of this cart...I jsut with PC researched the US flag a little better and put the stripes in the correct place. The Union us resting on a white stripe, not red! Maybe it's the Star Spangled Banner though, which ahs the union on the red stripe. Still looks like a cute cart though!

  50. Wow I didnt realise I NEEDED this little machine until I saw your blog. LOL.
