Cooking with Cricut Cartridge Showcase

Hello Bloggy Friends!!!  Today is my turn to showcase a cartridge for Cooking with Cricut and what did I choose?

***  Hello Kitty Greetings ***

Can we say cuteness overload. This cartridge is obviously full of the lovable Sanrio Kitty but it also has the cutest little accents and an outline feature is perfect for decor making. For my first project I used this feature to make a cute little onsie:

It cuts so nicely and pure simple cuteness!! I normally like to "color" the image with shirt paint, but in this case I wanted to keep it simple. Instead I just added some bling with my I-rock and voila from simple white to fabulous Kitty. I made a pair of these as part of a gift for my little niece. I did not used the HK cartridge for the second one but wanted to show you the pair of them so you can see how easy and fast is to create a personalized gift that new mommies just LOVE.

For my second project I used the card feature, I didn't even realize it was there until I started doing this project!! The card feature cuts some awesome shape cards, it takes card making to such a basic level that is great for kids projects, and you know how much girls love Hello Kitty. For my card I did the basic face card. The trick to the cards is to make sure to cut the card base, but also cut the shadow portion so that you don't end up with a part of the face cut off. 

For my next project I made a cute little gift purse, perfect for a little gift for that special HK lover. The purse is made using TBBM but he accents including the little flowers were made using HKG. You can make the flower look 3D by cutting multiple flowers and layering, it looks really neat.

For my last project I made a layout using 2 of the kitty cuts along with a title cut. 

Thank you for stopping by I hope I have inspired you to dust off the HK cartridge and start filling your craft room with kitty cuteness from this cartridge. Hugs, Xochitl.
