Check out Create a Friend Projects part 2 of this 2 part post.
Here is just one of the many fun images you can cut out with the Create A Friend Cricut cartridge. This is seriously one of my favorite new Cricut cartridges for scrapbook layouts.
This cartridge has the cutest little people on it doing just about anything your heart can imagine and even if it isn’t the perfect one you easily trade their hair or shoes or hats or what ever around and even sometimes just as simple as changing the color of the cloth to make it look totally different outfit to fit your needs.
So if you have kids like me and love to make scrapbook layouts about them then you should add this cartridge to your list of must haves.
I made this card for my son who is graduating from Kindergarten this week and I felt like this cute guy was very appropriate for him, and if your making this card consider cutting out two of the little guys one for the card and other for your scrapbook album. Two birds one stone!
How to Make this Cricut Card
The overall size of this card is 4″ x 6″ the background paper is some corrugated cardstock from DCWV. This is the first time I have used this type of paper and I actually like that is gives the card a lot of dimension without having to add a bunch of extra to it. The down side of this paper is that it only sticks where the paper is raised up. So you do have to use a lot of adhesive and something that will hold really well so it won’t fall off.
All the images are cut out from the Create A Friend Cricut Cartridge the little boy at about 6.25″ and You Did It! At 1.25″. Dealing with small pieces is made easier with the right Cricut tools.
Note: I did use the Cricut Explore to cut these images, if you are using any of the expressions or the personal I’m not sure if the “You Did It” will cut out that small really well, the letters are less than .5″ in height and from my experience with them it tears them up and spits them out, and it’s not super pretty. So you may want to make the phrase a little larger.
