Cricut July Mystery Box

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Hello, friends!  Who out there has a Cricut Electronic Cutting machine-- craft accessory extraordinaire?  I do!  This month, Cricut has an awesome deal--a a MYSTERY BOX!


Circut cartridges and other crafting supplies are in the MYSTERY BOX, which is a $124.94 value!  All for $29.99--who doesn't like a surprise!  Well, I guess it will be a better surprise if you actually have a Cricut to use the cartridges in:).

I use my Cricut to cut lettering for my scrapbooking projects, home decor, cards, and even plaques for my home.  I love my Cricut--I remember when my family bought me the original Cricut for my birthday.  My girls told me that I needed to come now as there was a cricket in the house!  I was forever having to gently remove house spiders from their rooms and couldn't believe they had to ask me to take care of a cricket!  Lol, they played a pretty good prank on mom, as did their dad.  There sat my Cricut and was I pleased!

Have a wonderful weekend.
