you can certainly break up your strength training that way- it's quite common. i would make sure you do flexors and extensors back to back- so that would mean doing a set of bicep curls then go do triceps... repeat as many times as you like.
i personally tend to just do super slow sets to exhaustion with weights heavy enough that i last about 2 min. on a typical day i do biceps/triceps, shoulders, and chest/back. i just do it a few times a week after cardio.
i don't use machines or weights for lower body or core- i do situps, squats, lunges, etc- since i do machines for those with my trainer once a week and it's easier for me to mess up with poor form and aggravate my back injury.
you can break up your st however you'd like- it's just a question of how much time you want to spend. i spend about 15 min after cardio with my superslow sets and i've been seeing and feeling results faster than the traditional 3 sets with 10-15 reps i was doing before! it's been about 2 1/2 months since i switched methods and i am seeing more definition in my arms- and as a woman it's definitely motivating!
