Cricut Cartridge Showcase: BEEP BEEP


Hello everyone, Becky here with my cartridge show case for Beep, Beep!



OHMYGOSH! (yes, all one word) this has got to be hands down the worse cartridge showcase ever! I have to start out with an apology. I admit it. I messed up. I am sorry. I don’t know how I did it, but I wrote down that my showcase date was April 19th NOT April 9th, so when I got a friendly reminder email that my projects were due, I sort of (totally) panicked!

You know how when you are on a serious deadline nothing goes right? Welllllll, that happened to me! My Cricut was acting up, my blade went dull and I couldn’t find another one, I was doing all my designing on Cricut Craftroom and my lap top decided to wig out on me, my camera batteries died, and to top it all off it is Easter Sunday today and my family is giving me grief for doing crafting stuff instead of family stuff!  ARG!!!…Anyways, rant over…I’ve done the best I can with what I had to work with this time around and I WILL do a better job next time. I apologize to all my other CWC teammates for dropping the ball this time around and not keeping things to their previously established high standard of quality.

Beep, Beep is a Cricut Lite cartridge so there is not a whole lot too it. It is very simple to use but SUPER cute, and awesome for anyone who has a little boy in their life!

My first project is a Name Banner. All of the little machines are cut from Beep, Beep; however the flags came from Birthday Bash, and the Font is from George and Basic Shapes. I added Diamond Glaze to the windows of all the vehicles to make them look like glass windows and I added tiny buttons to look like they were carrying a load.







For my next project I really liked the little train so I made this sweet card for a little boy.  The front of the card has the Choo Choo sentiment from the Beep, Beep cartridge and then when you open it up the inside of the card (sorry I forgot to take a picture) says, “that means Happy Birthday in Train”



Finally, I didn’t have time to make projects out of these little guys but I did have enough time to cut out a few other images so you could get a chance to see some of them.






Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope I was able to give you some ideas for this really great cartridge.

Thanks for showing me that lite carts are so worth it, But I have a hard time buying them when I can get a full cart for the same price. Love all the projects you did with this cart.

Well Becky, even if it was tough getting going on this and all the problems you occurred, it was well worth it in the end.  OhMyGosh!  this is just to darn cute, I love everything about it.  Now no matter what happens I have to get this cartridge.  This cartridge is going crazy on price and I can't find it in the stores for a reasonable price so hoping it will go cheap for me soon.  Thanks for the awesome idea, although my kids are grown up I could have so much fun on their pages of the times growing up playing in the sand pit we made for them.
