A fabulous Cricut & Silhouette storage find
Wednesday, September 11, 2013
Hello friends. I wanted to share a fabulous find I picked up last week at Michaels. I get the email alerts and saw there was a 20% your entire purchase so I headed off to pick up some much needed cardstock. I was happy when I came upon this craft cart from Recollections that was on sale for 29.99 (regularly priced at 79.99). I was even happier that I could add my 20% off coupon to the purchase and walk away with it for about 24.00.
The box wasn't too large or heavy and I was able to carry it to my car on my own.
My sweet son assembled the cart for me and it did take him about 45 mins but well worth the wait. I love the height, storage drawers and the fact that both of my machines fit perfectly.
The 3 8 1/2 x 11 deep drawers are perfect for my tool kit, USB cord and extra blades and accessories. I was easily able to get 6 cartridges in the second drawer with room for 2 more behind them.
The 6 13x13 drawers are perfect for storing your cardstock and my favorite part about this cart. You can really fill those drawers up with cardstock.
The cart is on wheels so it's easy to roll around when using it and the back is open so it's easy to plug your cords into the nearest outlet.
The shelves to have a nice large space for storage of both machines but when you load the mats, they do hang over the front. It was easy to make the space functional for cutting by simply turning either machine at an angle to allow the mat to glide thru the machine while cutting without being obstructed by the side rails.
When using the Silhouette you can easily roll the cart over to your PC to plug in the USB or if you have a laptop like I do, I simply removed my Cricut and placed my laptop above for use.
This item has a great design, perfect function and the price was awesome. I would recommend this cart to anyone with these machines looking for a great way to store them. Previously, both of my machines were sitting on a book case shelf and this set up makes them easy to turn on and get cutting.
I love that I now have an awesome place to use both my Cricut Expression 2 and Silhouette Cameo plus tons of storage.
As I mentioned, you can pick up this cart at Michaels Craft stores. Prices may vary for your area.
In case you are wondering, I didn't get anything out of posting this review, I just really loved the cart and wanted to share my experience with other die cut machine owners.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a creative day
