Your Story Bundle

I mentioned in yesterdays post how I got a Your Story Bundle and thought I would explain that a little. I know a lot of you took advantage of the fantastic price that was available a few weeks ago. There were several ladies who got 2-4 of the bundles so they could give as gifts. I don't know anyone crafty enough that would want to use this so I just got one for myself.

This picture pretty much represents what was included in the Your Story bundle
Provocraft was running a great Green Wedneday special a few weeks ago where you got an extra *okie tries to remember*, I think 20% off but it might have been 30%. If you were a Cricut Circle member you got another 10% off. They were also offering free shipping at the time. The bundle was on sale for around $17 or so and after all the discounts it was less than $12. My friend Amy, aka Scraparazzi, kept telling me about the bundle and about the trimmer. I wasn't sold on the Your Story machine but was intrigued by the trimmer so I took the bait. I had $60 credit on so figured I would get that and stock up on blades. I ended up ordering 7 packs of blades *okie is so thankful she did since she can't seem to find them locally anymore*.

I am not sure what I will make with the Your Story but I did ask around about it and a lot of people love it for laminating things. I did hear that you can use the Scotch laminating sheets in the Your Story and they work great. I guess I will have to find something to bind or laminate soon just so I can use it!


  1. I used mine to laminate the nametags for our Croptoberfest weekend crop. Worked great! I'm sure you will use it and it is soooo easy to use.

  2. Interesting, I wonder if you could just purchase the trimmer separately?

  3. The machine is great for making holiday gifts. Only had mine for a week so far and already made 3 mini brag books and one notebook. My original attention of buying this was to make photo books for family members. All I would have to do is copy the layouts and put them into the album covers. I am making my own hard covers out of chipboard and pattern paper.


  4. I don't have one but have seen where they make some great little photo albums as well as picture books for little ones to learn the alphabet.

  5. I missed out on this,never even seen it! Guess I should have stay in the Cricut Circle.
    Looks to me you got a really good deal!!

  6. I have one but haven't used it much since I seem to like to layer things and this doesn't work with laminating ! I'm Really looking forward to seeing what all you come up with to use this for though !!

  7. I'm still on the fence about this machine. I just don't see myself using it much. Can't wait to see your review on it. Smooches... Felicia
