New Cricut cartridge release!

 If you ask any Cricut fan, they will tell you that without a doubt, Hello Thursday is the best day of the month! What is Hello Thursday? That is the day that Provocraft reveals the upcoming cartridges being released! Now I have to say that having the pleasure of working with a selection of these cartridges is nothing short of wonderful! Its exciting to design a few projects to share with you and get the release party started! To see all of the amazing cartridges and all of the projects the team put together this month please visit the official Cricut blog! That is THE blog to visit for all the Cricut news!

 One of the cartridges I got to work with is Santa's village, its an Imagine art cartridge filled with nostalgic images and a full array of papers! Wow what a fabulous cartridge, this will make you want an Imagine if you don't already have one! Sure to be an all time favorite!!

This 3D treat box was a snap to whip up, let the Crciut Imagine print and cut it and you assemble, fill, and embellish! That's what I call user friendly! I personally love the vintage and classic look of the art images on this cartridge! 

 I added a generous dash of glitter to the snow topped box, and there is a whole page of tags to print and cut! What a great tool for your gift wrapping this Holiday season!

 This card was made using the new Cricut stencil sampler! This cartridge is great for everything from home decorating to card making! The fact that you can make your own stencils in any size you need it really gets my brain buzzing with ideas!

 I used a small cut and stenciled onto watercolor paper with inks, but I would love to see this as a large stencil on a wall with a welcome greeting above it!......may give that a try! :)

 For a friend that is "all that and a bag of chips"

The new fast food lite cartridge really filled a void in the cartridge world! All of us have a love affair with everyday food items like hot dogs, and know you do..admit it!!! :) so how great to have the images to add to scrappy pages and fun cards like this one! I know this will bring a smile, and sometimes that's the greatest part of being a paper a smile to a friend! :)

Small groupings of chunky glitter take on the appearance of sea salt, can you tell I had fun with this one? *giggle*
I hope you are as excited as I am about this months cartridge release! Did you pop over and look at them all? which one is your favorite?
