Can I just ask....how cute is the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge?! This is not a cartridge that I own as the girls and I are really not into the whole Hello Kitty thing. I borrowed this cart from a friend to see what the big deal is, and I have to say it has some cute cuts on it such as this adorable cupcake! It also has the most adorable strawberry, cherries and other big chunky puffy shapes. My only complaint is that I tried the "card" feature on one of the cuts and did not like it at all. My card looked lop sided and slanted on the hinge side. I don't think this is a cart I would purchase, but if I could get a cart with just the cupcake and fruit shapes I would be in LOVE!! Speaking of fruit shapes...anyone know which cart I can find a pear shape on?

I whipped up this card for my mom's birthday tomorrow. The background paper is from the DCWV Sweet Stack. I cut the cupcake at 6" and stickled the frosting. I used a random button from my button jar and cut off the cherry stem. The word "birthday" is a rub-on and the word "happy" is cut using my Quick Kutz Calvin font. Pretty simple. Now off to look for a pear.


  1. Very cute... perfect stack for this cut/card and I like how you varied the sentiment with a cut and a rub-on.

    I agree with you, not totally into the cat but love the fruit and other chunky cuts. (I think there's a pear on AE.) Cute! Cute!

  2. Cute, yummy card!


  3. You are right, this is a really chunky cut. I love the card. I have the cart, but just haven't found time to play with it yet.

  4. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Great card - I want to eat it!!! Btw, doing a search on DS, it says there's a pear on Joys of the Season (maybe with the partridge in a pear tree?) and one on Home Decor.

  5. Scratch that - it's Home Accents. Not Home Decor.

  6. Love the way you put the button for the cherry on top!!
