Cartridge Showcase: Sesame Street and Friends


Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone has been enjoy this warm weather! Today Chef Madison from Funky Cards has cooked up some really fun and cute cards to share with you today. Madison is so insightful and is going to share some neat tricks and tips with you! So without further ado, here is Madison:

Hello, I'm Madison and Today I am showcasing the Cricut cartridge, Sesame Street and Friends. I will be sharing with you several cuts I made, several reasons why I enjoy using this cartridge, and finally sharing the cards I designed with the cuts.

These have to be three of my favorite all time characters from Sesame Street- Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and Oscar the Grouch!  When you see them you cannot help but think of the Friends of Sesame Street.  Each cut was made at 3.5 inches.

What I love about this cartridge is that each page tells you exactly what paper you will need for each item that you are cutting. There is no guessing! For example, you can see that it tells you when to use the blue paper and when to use the black paper to get the correct cut out.

Another reason I love this cartridge is that is has numbers! While that may not seem like a big deal because you have tons of cartridges with numbers, I like it because I use this cartridge to make birthday cards for kids. It is so much easier to cut out the numbers using the same cartridge rather than switching to a new cartridge.  I am currently making birthday cards for a project that I will be telling you about soon.  I do not currently know the ages for the recipients of these cards, so that is why I left them off.

Sesame Street and Friends Cricut Cartridge

Quick and easy and totally cute:)  Cookie Monster can brighten any card.

Once again, using the Cricut cut out on this card made this card quick and easy. A paper flower was added for a bit of dimension.

Oscar the Grouch's card is made from recycled wallpaper.  
He is inked for interest as is his garbage can.  

Quick and easy cards can come to life with this Sesame Street and Friends Cricut cartridge.  It can also be used for scrapbook pages for theme birthday parties:)  I really enjoyed making these cards and I can't wait to send them in the mail to some very deserving children.

Thank you for stopping by.
