The Very Versatile Cricut Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge

Cricut Stretch Your Imagination CartridgeWith Easter just around the corner, I thought that now would be a good time to discuss the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. Although this cartridge has die cuts for just about every season and special occasion, it also has some that would make the Easter Bunny especially "hoppy", including musical chics, Easter eggs and baskets, and of course, bunnies.

The Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge really lives up to its name - you can make "regular" die cuts, or you can hit the "Shift" key and stretch them out. Now, if only I had a shift key when I looked in the mirror (but I suppose that's a story for another day!).

Anyway, the characters are designed by David Walker Studios. In addition to this cartridge, David Walker Studios has done the artwork on some of my other all-time favorites (and probably yours too), including Joys of the Season and Paper Pups.

Getting back on track, the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge gets an A+ in my book for versatility. Here are a few of the die cuts you will be able to make with this in your scrapbooking library:

* For spring, there is a good selection of Easter die cuts discussed earlier, as well as bird houses, caterpillars, watering cans and flower pots.

* For summertime scrapbook layouts and cards, there are bicycles, ice cream cones, watermelon slices, honeybees, grasshoppers, turtles and sand castles.

* Autumn-inspired die cuts include Halloween favorites, such as smiling jack-o-lanterns and creepy spiders. There are also school busses, autumn leaves, turkeys, and even squirrels (with their acorn stash, of course!).

* You will also find a nice selection of characters for wintertime and for Christmas, including snowmen, sleds, snowflakes, Christmas trees and holly.

In addition to all four seasons, there are cutout shapes for special occassions. Champagne glasses and cakes for weddings, baby buggies for baby showers, and balloons and presents for birthday parties.

In addition to the versatile selection of die cuts that can be made with this cartridge, it is also great for making cards. A foundation key for cards and envelopes is included, as well as card and card frame creative features. Other creative features include layers, silhouette, shadow and blackout.

Whether you are someone new to the Cricut scene, or have an overflowing collection of cartridges, the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge is one you won't want to be without!
