Monday Cricut Cartridge Showcase

Welcome to our first 
Monday Cricut Cartridge Showcase at 
Cooking With Cricut







Hi! This is Chef Madison.  I am here today to kick off the Monday Cricut Cartridge Showcase.  Every Monday for the rest of July and for the month of August, one member of the Cooking With Cricut Design Team will be showcasing their favorite Cricut cartridge by designing and creating a new project to share here with you:)


I currently own about 20 Cricut cartridges and my favorite for the moment is Kate's ABCs. I wanted to share with you today how you could use a cut out from this Cricut cartridge to create a home decor project.  For those of you who follow my blog, you know that I love to paint.  Many of you claim that you don't know how to paint.  Well no more excuses!  Here is an easy way to paint!


Start with a blank canvas.  Mine was 11" by 14."


Using white card stock, I cut an image from Kate's ACBs at 6 1/2" and traced it onto the blank canvas.


Now it is a matter of choosing paint colors.  You have transfered this adorable cut out onto a canvas to hang in a little girl's room or anywhere you would like.  You can do this with any Cricut cartridge so you can see the opportunities are limitless.  I added "Love Life" and two butterflies to fill in  space on the canvas.  I freehanded these but you can use Cricut cuts and fonts!


I hope you have been inspired. Time to get out the paints and the Cricut and see what you can cook up:)


Thanks for stopping by!
