February Cricut Mystery Box

You guys know I love a mystery box and not just beauty boxes. I recently discovered cricut also sells mystery boxes and this month it contained cartridges. Cricut is a personal electronic cutting machine used in card making, scrapbooking, and crafting of all types. I have a cricut and I don't use it enough but when I do use it I also think to myself "This thing is amazing, I need to use it more often." The cartridges that are needed to use the machine run anywhere from $30-$60 a piece. As you can see, adding to your collection of cartridges can add up quick. So when I saw cricut had a mystery box deal that has three cartridges for $30 plus shipping I jumped on it. I actually ordered 2 boxes because I wasn't sure if they would be different or not. I  have a couple of dozen cartridges but there are hundreds of them out there so I hoped I wouldn't get any duplicates. After tax and shipping the cost per cartridge ended up being $12.25 each which is a bargain for any cartridge.

These are the three cartridges I received. Space Party, Sugar and Spice and Chic & Scary. I don't have any of these cartridges so I lucked out. I can't think of any project I would use these for right away but I did see some designs on the Sugar and Spice and the Chic & Scary cartridges that I'm sure I'll use. I don't think I have any need for Space Party but I think I'll hold onto it for now since it was such a good deal. I had ordered two boxes and they had the same things in each box. I'm not too worried about it because I'm sure I can sell the dupes for what I paid since they are so inexpensive.

Verdict: If you are into Cricut and don't have a lot of cartridges this is a great deal. Can't wait to see what next months mystery box has in it.
