Cricut Country Life Cartridge Project #1


I have to say, that I love my Cricut!  I love its ease of use, and I love all the wonderful cartridges available for it.  I have to say, that I own quite a few!  That is why I have decided to feature a  cartridge every month.  I want to give eveyone  a chance to see how very versatile this machine, and these cartridges are!  So this month I will be starting with the Country Life Cartidge, and I will show one every week for the month of April.  The following month will be a new one and so on. 

So I chose Country Life because it is all about farms, and growth, and brings to mind warm weather.  The Lord knows how desperate I am for warm sunny weather.  It feels like Winter in Ontario, Canada is to long, and hangs on and fights to the bitter end.  So for today I created a card using these gorgeous beets/radishes? .  The background frame was from an exclusive Circle Cartridge, but can easily be replaced with any Spellbinder or Cricut lace cut cartridge.  The inside greeting was also cut from the Country Life, and the bee is a stamp from Lockhart.Hope you enjoy!

  1. I love my Cricut too! I use it mostly for alphas – I don’t think to use it for diecut shapes… Looks like I’ll have to do more of that, lol! Thanks for sharing.
