8 Best Cricut Scrapbooking Tools ...

By Jennifer

I am currently coveting my friend Michelle’s Cricut die-cutting machine. She lets me use it when we’re scrapbooking together, but I truly want my own… though I’m loathe to spend the money on one. They’re expensive, but they’re so… cool! Michelle also has all kinds of tools for her Cricut, all of which she stores neatly in a cute little tote. Does my jealousy stem from the Cricut, or the tote, or a combination of both? You decide. Here are the 8 best Cricut scrapbooking tools. Which makes your heart go pitter-patter?

Let’s face it — our Cricut machines are heavy, and you don’t want to risk dropping them from a standard tote bag, or lug them around without one! This rolling case is designed to keep your Cricut safe and also makes it completely portable. I love the purple polka-dots, too!

8 Cricut Doodletype Font Cartridge

No Cricut tools list would be complete without at least one marvelous cartridge, and while this isn’t my favorite, it’s probably the handiest, with a super-cute, versatile font. Use it to make letters in any size you like, from one inch to 5½ inches.

And sweetie, these are just the tools for the Cricut machine… it doesn’t even include the fabulous cartridges for images and fonts and stuff! See what I mean? Are you coveting a Cricut now too? Or… do you already have one? If so, which of these Cricut tools do you like best?
