Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut Cartridge

A few years ago, I remember watching infomercials about the Cricut personal electronic cutting machines. I admit I was pretty fascinated by it, but it didn’t fit in with my college budget (though I daydreamed about all the beautiful posters I could make when I was President of the Math Club haha). Now I am happy to say that I am finally a proud owner of a Cricut Expression Machine — a much larger version than the other Cricut machines. My fiancĂ© actually gave it to me as a gift, since he knows I love arts and crafts (in addition to makeup, of course :) ).

As soon as I got my Cricut Expression, I ordered the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge so I can make tons of Hello Kitty cards and decorations. There are two different Hello Kitty cartridges: Greetings and Fonts. I have the Greetings cartridge that has mostly images and phrases (shown on the right), and I only paid $22.95 + $4.99 shipping for it instead of $89.99 ($49.99 on sale) at my nearby Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store. I’ve noticed that cartridges are much cheaper on Amazon.com (~$20-30) compared to stores like Michael’s and Jo-Ann (~$90 regular price and ~$40 on sale — and the coupons don’t work on them!).

I wanted to share with you the first little project I made using this cartridge — a Hello Kitty Valentine. :) You can actually turn any of the designs on this cartridge into a card, but I just wanted to make one big Hello Kitty holding a heart. The picture on the left shows an icon of the first cut I made, which is the outline of Hello Kitty holding a heart. I used a sheet of black glitter cardstock, and the Cricut cut out the shape on the right. It’s a bit hard to see in the picture, but there are cuts in the middle that help you position the other parts of the design later when you’re ready to glue.

The next step is to cut out all the white parts with white cardstock, such as the face, right ear, and paws. Then I used red cardstock to cut out the bow and yellow cardstock for the nose. The picture on the left shows some of these pieces, and the right shows the top half glued down.

Lastly, I used the Cricut to cut out the heart layer with pink cardstock. I glued the rest of the parts down and ended up with the kitty pictured on the left. The Cricut Expression came with two cartridges, so I decided to use the included font cartridge to cut out “Wycee + Greg” in blue cardstock to finish my Valentine. :)
