This last weekend my sisters, mom, and myself got together to scrapbook and play with the Cricut. I usually don't create scrapbook pages. I got my Cricut to make cards and use for other projects. This was one of the best weekends that I've had in a long time. We went to a friend's cabin and spent two days scrapbooking all day and night. It was here that I was able to continue exploring the new cartridges that I have acquired for my collection. I fell in love with Storybook
cartridge and used this font to create titles for my Grandma's old fashioned tea party photos. I used Graphically Speaking
to create quotes and phrases to add to my fourth of July photos. I discovered the joy of the Paper Doll Dress Up
cartridge as my sisters made paperdolls for their Halloween photos. I had forgotten how many wonder things you could do with all the different cartridges.
In this exploration I will focus on the new cartridge, Wild Card
, and share bits and pieces of what is in this cartridge. Everyone at the scrapbook party checked this cartridge out and fell in love with it. Almost everyone of them exclaimed that they wanted to purchase this cartridge. This cartridge is all about creating cards and envelopes. There are some adorable images that are to hard to describe. You can't get
a very good feel for this cartridge just looking at the back of the cartridge box.
The creative features that come with this cartridge are: Frame, Phrase, Icon, Liner, Blackout, and Alphabet. Some examples of images that are in this cartridge are: argyle, scallop, booklet, leaf, and wave. Each of these images will have the topic designed in the card and the envelopment. There is even a cupcake, baby pin, a present, and wedding style card and envelope (see pic).
The creative features--Frames are: rectangle, square, Fleur De Lis, square, triangle, flower rectangle, leaf, tweedy on a branch, buttons, ovals, phone cord, and rocket ship. A lot of the frames have an image placed on top of the frame to help give it a different look. This feature is great for finding a way to accent a photo on your scrapbook page. The blackout feature give you the ability to cut a different card or envelope as a sold items, so you now have a way to add accents to each of your envelopes or cards. The other feature that I love in this cartridge is the Alphabet feature. Just think now you get one cartridge with images, cards, envelopes and a font all on one cartridge. Yes I am stating the obvious, this features give you upper and lower case letters, symbols and numbers.
