    Hey caro.. if you go to the cricut dot com website and click on products, then cartridges, then choose one and then click more/larger images, it shows you whats on each cartridge.

    How much can you get them wholesale?

    If you have a laser printer you can print on clear sticker sheets straight from your computer. My mum sells A4 sticker sheets of any name you choose, she has the same name on the sheet printed in different fonts and also the name meaning. You just cut out the part you want and stick it on your page. She sells them for $4.95 a sheet. If you want to see them go to ebay and look at this number 270030249187.

    Well I have been dying to scrap and still haven't maybe today !!! I am not holding my breathe though.

    I am not sure bout acid free in relation to toners. I do know that my information on the clear sticker sheets is that they are acid free, coming from the company that makes them. A laser printing like a photocopier basically heat seals the toner and therefore it doesn't smudge. I had to buy a little black laser printer cost app $170 to print name meaning certificates people were buying from me as the inkjet printer ink was smudging no matter what setting it was on, and I couldn't sell them with smudgy ink. The coloured ones are way dearer.
    Don't get me wrong I do take the whole acid free thing seriously, but I also think it is very hard to be 100% sure that what these companies are telling us about acid free and lignin free is true. My other issue with the whole acid free thing is that I like to put memorabilia and other items such as certificates and stuff onto my pages and they are def not acid free. eg things like leaves or feathers, the kids bracelets from hospital, I have put coins of the birth year on a page, Josh's kinder graduation certificate, party invitations. I guess my theory on it is I use acid free stuff where possible and if I am unsure about something I will still use it but not have it touching the photos themselves.
    What does everyone else do?

    I use heaps of different brands.. whatever suits really. I really like the Creative Imaginations (US brand) alphabets.. otherwise i use CM, Karen Foster, DCWV, Frances Meyer and others i cant think of.

    I know ive used normal white A4 paper at times... would that be acid free? would have to look on the packaging but its in the other room and i cant be bothered :P

    Um.. i stuck Jesse's and my hospital bands in his baby record book, but have his hospital card i want to use somewhere.. Ill use bits and pieces i think through time that wont be acid free, if it doesnt last then its a bummer but theyre something i want Jesse to at least have in his book as a memory.

    Ive uploaded some of my scrapbooking to Jesse's website! Just go to the Photo Gallery and theyre in the Scrapbook folder

    Kell and Nic, I love your pages. You've both done fantastic jobs.

    My Mum and I are doing a white on white challenge together atm. It's quite hard. Am finding it really hard not using colour.
