Cartridge Showcase: Love You A Latte


Welcome to CookingWithCricut.com and today's Cartridge Showcase! Chef Nita is taking over the reigns and sharing projects she has created using the Cricut Lite Love You A Latte cartridge.  This cartridge will wake up your imagination!  It is filled with coffee and tea-themed images, such as coffee beans, espresso machines, mugs, pots, breakfast foods, and more.

So without further ado . . . here's Nita!



Hi Everyone! It’s Nita from Nita Notes. I’m so excited to share one of my favorite cartridges with you today! Those of you who follow my blog know I’m a wee bit of a coffee fan.  When Love You a Latte was first released, I was so excited I (literally) did a little happy dance. I HAD to have it. I called my husband over to the computer, pointed at the screen, and he said “You HAVE to have that. You should order it. Now.”  He’s a keeper, I know. :)
As soon as it arrived, I eagerly tore open the packaging (like a kid at Christmas), and immediately created this thank-you card combining two of my favorite things:  coffee and puns.



A punny birthday card followed:



This next card is one of my favorites. There is just something about the creamy texture of that ribbon, alongside the creamy coffee in those cups, which makes me smile. And crave a Starbucks.



This next project I’m going to share with you is a sneak-peek of a work-in-progress. When we travel as a family, I like to have copies of our favorite recipes with us. And, instead of just scribbling them down on plain old recipe cards (like normal people would), I decided to use all my crafty supplies to create a special recipe book (because I have SOOO much free time. HA!). Here a couple of pages I made using the Love You a Latte cartridge. The first is the cover page for the Drinks section of the book. I wanted just the silhouette of the “coffee shop couple”, so I used only the first layer of the cut.


The second is a page showcasing one of our favorite smoothie recipes (the instructions are on the back).



These pages will be laminated and placed on a binder ring with all the rest, and eventually I’ll have a durable little book of recipes that travels with me.
I hope you enjoyed a quick look at Love You a Latte. It really is a fun cartridge, and not just for crazy-coffee lovers like myself. Thanks so much for letting me share it with you! :)


Great projects, Nita . . . I think I've even got a bit of a caffeine buzz and I don't even drink coffee!!  LOL!

Make sure you visit Nita's blog for more details on her wonderful projects -- don't forget to leave her a comment and let her know how much you liked her showcase.  We'll see you back here Wednesday for our weekly challenge and Chef Debbie will be showcasing her favorite cartridge on Thursday.
