No one will ever come between us. I will love you always for your generous spirit and your strength..not to mention you look so darned good..

Now and forever yours,
Katie ;)

Vicki said...

My Dearest Cricut,

I have been looking for you for so long. I can't believe I finally found you. What did I do before you came into my life? You have added so much color and dimension to my world. I truly love you.

My darling Big shot,
You shot an arrow through my heart and made me yours forever. Indeed i feel i should truly die if you should ever leave me.

Samantha-Leigh Smith said...

Oh how I love my cicut,
It makes scrapbooking so fast,
All I have to do is press cut,
And my memories are there to last!
Oh how I love my cricut and all of its possibilities! <3

Monica said...

Oh Big Shot, let me cut the ways. You have brought me flowers and hearts and top notes too. I love your quiet peaceful sounds that hum into something beautiful. You are my sunshine, or at least you can create one for me.

Love you always,

Stephanie said...

My Dearest Cricut

I am not creative
I am not stylish
I am not one to embellish
But since we have met
I have become crafty with cards, scrapbooks and more!


Katie said...

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

Lori - kustomade4u said...

Oh cricut, oh cricut
How I love thee
I know we've just met
but without you I cannot be!!
You cut & cut & cut some more
and turn an uncreative person like me into a super scrapbooker, designer & more, so much more!! :)


Jana-Michel Westall said...

Dear Cricut,

I love you much,
even when I'm away
Thank goodness for Gypsy,
I can always play.
I design all the time,
even in the car
My pages look fine,
with a moon or a star.
When I come back,
And plug Gypsy in,
Red paper or black,
Let the cutting Begin!!!

Love, Jana-Michel

Sheila said...

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,

Love Your Cuttlebunny!

Michelle said...

Oh Nesties,
Oh Cricut,

Wish I could have more,
But Santa left me no dough.

Dearest Cricut,

Our love affair is still so young, but growing by the cartridge! Oh, how I love the way you make me feel so creative inside! Let's face it, a life without you, just wouldn't CUT it!

Ode to my Xyron:

Oh Xyron
How I love Thee
You make everything
oh so sticky

From the smallest micro dot
to the largest of cardstock
no feat too great or too small
you will stick them all!

Oh Xyron
How I love thee!

Dear Craft Corner,

I love you all so, how can I choose! Rubons, ribbons, xyrons and cricuts. If I must pick just one, cricut, you are my one and only!


Robin* said...

Tools, tools, how I love my tools
They let me be free to break creative rules!

They’re round and straight and curvy too
To my tools I say…I love you!

They help me cut and help me crimp
With my tools I’m not a scrappin’ wimp.

There would be no way to pick just one
So I’ll use all my tools for continuous fun!

My punches, my cutters, my tweezers, my cricut,
My sizzix, my xyron, my tools are my ticket!

I have many tools that I keep so neat
I love them all, cause they are sweet!

So to my tools, I have to say…
They will help me create the very best Valentine’s Day!

Beki Ward said...

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

One Cuttlebug, two Cuttlebugs, three Cuttlebugs, four...

Cricut Expression, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways....
I love the detailed cuts you make on plastic, vinyl & paper.
I love the cute little cartridges designed with such favor.
The cute little shapes that decorate my pages.
The boxes and cards that will last for ages.
Smiles to save, memories preserving.
My love for you, dear Cricut, is forever enduring.

Priscilla said...

Cricut, how do I love thee. Let me count they ways.
I love thy cartridges and thy shapes.
My creativity can reach new heights
For the cost of owning, no price is great
I love thee to the end of days
Most women need to own you and the gypsy
I love thee freely, even when you are not
I love thee purely, as rightly so
I love thee with a passion put to use

Love you always

Tracy said...

My Dearest Snip-its,

I love how you fit perfectly in my hand. . . you bring me such happiness with your cold steel and sharp blades.
With you, it IS the small things, it IS the details. Your strength has never failed me. . .

Eternally devoted,


Sentiments said...

Oh my cricut how I love thee,
You have made crafting so much easier for me.

The warm glow from you lights oh so green,
Puts a glide in my stride, skip in my step, makes my heart sing.

You cut fabric, chipboard and card-stock with ease.
Your chirping sound makes me so weak in the knees.

Oh cricut expression, create and baby bug,
You deserve every accolade, every kiss and every hug.

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

Dear Stickles,
Love Always,

There once was a Cricut named Bug
Who could cut with nary a Chug,
On papers of blue,
Red and orange too,
I say thanks with a great big hug!


Kathy said...

Francis said...

Just makes me want to squeal.

You make scrapbooking such a dream.

To my most beautiful Rose!

I hope I never run out of you!

Amy Genn said...

My Darling Stickles,
My life was not complete before I found you. I don't care if the bling trend might be over....I'll never get tired of you!
I'm always able to find a place for you on every project, and I thank you for your faithfulness!
Wherever I go, I know you'll be right beside me!

Angela said...

How I love thee Papers, let me count the ways.
I love thee from Bazzil to Basic Grey to Anne Griffin to Fancy Pants and 7 Gypsies,
I love thee equally,
I love thee when not in sight
Most quiet and underestimated, but the foundation for all I do
I love thee purely, the simple plain to the glittered and flocked,
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee and entrust my cherished memories
Smiles, tears, of all my life!

Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug,

All my days would be full of dismay!

You are the best thing in my life!

Rachel Mach said...

To my gorgeous Jimi, the baby bug,
Oh, my loved Cricut, how I sing to thee!
Thine presence fills me with utmost desire:
Creativity flows from you to me.
With you by my side, I can ne’er go wrong.
From cool cards to pages to home d├ęcor
So many projects inundate my soul.
Time I spend with you is never a bore.
If ever I were to lose your kind touch,
My world would implode (seriously, dude!)
I would have no more crafts, or things to do!
Now as patience runs thin I must conclude.
Jimi the Cricut, I sure do love you!

Written in iambic pentameter. We're studying one of Shakespeare's plays, so that's why I did that. :D I'm such a nerd.... :)

Danelle said...

Dear Cricut,
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! With SCAL I can Cut any fonts and clip art I want. With the carts it's a snap to cut things quickly. You made card making fun again. You make my future scrapbooking possible...maybe. I love you, never change!!

From, Moi

Mrs. Jones said...

Dearest Embossing Powder,

Oh how I love your sparkling and your glowing. The way you glimmer just melts my heart...oh how I love thee!

Anonymous said...

I own a Sizzix and I own a Silhouette,
But, oh gosh, oh dear, I wish I owned a Cricut.
I'm a gadget girl, I can't help myself;
I love paper crafting so much that I have no room on my shelf!

Robin said...

Scal is my Pal,
Where have you been all my life.
My Cricut has been lonely, now it has a Scal Pal.

Shannon said...

My dearest Oh My Crafts....

You have no idea how much you mean to me....I believe my heart skips a beat each and every time I receive one of your e-mails....I covet your website....

Love you forever

Anonymous said...

Cuttlebugs are GREEN,
My Cricut is CREAM.
What would I do if I didn't have both of you.
People mutter about the Zutter,
O do I need one of those.
The Glue Glider Pro makes everything a GO. O how I could ever live without one of those. The thing that would make all my needs complete, is to keep things neat and keep the kids watching thier show.


Peek at My Paper said...

Pretty Papers - what would you be?
I am so sorry they cut you from that tree.
But, without your pretty prints & colors
I wouldn't have fun crafts to do with others.
You cut, you fold, my favorite pictures you hold,
All those memories for me, when I get old.

Thanks for the chance to win! :)

JoanieB said...

My Dearest Cricut,

They said we'd never make it, that eventually our love will fade. But over time we've proven, that for each other we were made.


W. Wallerstein said...

Dear Cricut...
Come grow old with me, the best is yet to be!!

Deborah Chesney said...

My Dearest Slice,

So small, green and light,
but for cutting you are just right.
One small card inserted gets you going,
and then my projects start glowing.
It was love at first sight, of that I am sure.
So Slice you will remain, forever, my paper cutting cure.
With love,

Karenduch said...

My Cricut Expression,
Life was so two-dimensional before you came into my life. I could not possibly scrap again with out! The way you embelish my pages, make my crafts sparkle with pizzaz! I truly love thee.

Oh Cricut, Oh Gypsy, Oh Cuttlebug and More
Now I can Scrapbook, Make Cards, Even out of the Door

No store bought items for Birthdays, Christmas or Valentine's Day
Now homemade, Embellished, Embossed is definitely the way

Without you my life would just not be complete
Plus I wouldn't be able to win prizes as I could not compete!!


Shannon "cargirl" said...

Dearest Cricut,
You came into my life at a truly fine time,
My wrists hurt so bad from cutting with scissors, all I did was whine.
I thought I'd have to quit,
But you wouldn't hear of it.
I press cut after I pick a font,
And you give me just what I want.

Yours now and forever,

Joyce said...

Dear Cuttlebug,

I don't know how I functioned before you came into my life. I never make a project without you right there by my side. And those nesties {sigh}, we all make such a great team together. Anything is possible when I have you to help me.

Oh my darling Zutter

It took me so long to pluck up the courage to touch you to caress your one strong arm but now that i have i will never go back to binding with ribbons or rings.
