I have learned a lot lately about scrapbooking. I recently joined and learned about Inchies/Trinchies/Twinchies. They are one inch squares decorated with at least three layers of embellishments. I have not had a chance to try them out, but plan to as soon as I get some decorative paper to go with my disney cricut characters. The inchies can be as simple as letters layered and placed on a square. These are great for embellishing scrapbook pages and cards.

There is a great section on the Cricut website that is for swaps and requests. Everyone is committed to helping one another by sharing cuts from different cartridges. I have joined my first swap for Disney Characters because I have only gotten the Mickey and Friends Cartridge so far. This way I can get other characters from other cartridges, like the princess cartridges. We plan to go Disney this winter and I want to put together a scrapbook and maybe an autograph book for my kids to take with them. Another great thing about this is this way I get to make ten of one character, using the same shape and colors. If I made one of each character even on my cartridge I would be wasting a lot of paper.

As soon as I get around to finishing my swap, I will post pictures before I send them out.
