Which Christmas Cartridge for the Cricut is Your Favorite?

Well, my craft area looks like a tornado hit, and instead of cleaning it up (like I should be doing), I decided to get online and find out which Christmas cartridge for the Cricut is everyone's favorite.  I know, it's tough to pick just one, isn't it - especially after all the additions that the Provo Craft Company has made to the collection just in the last year!

I think if I had to pick my favorite, it would be the new Winter Woodland cartridge.  I keep reaching for it when I have something to make.  Here's a picture of one of three tags that I made with it last night...

Christmas Cartridge for the Cricut

The other two tags look much the same - just the snowflake cut and the initial are different.  I'm using these tags on my nieces' presents.  They were super simple to make.  I just used Winter Woodland's tag and font creative features, did a little embossing on the top layer, glued everything together, and added a heart fastener for a little bling - that's it!

As a side note, I made the bow on this present using a Bowdabra maker.  If you don't have one of these gizmos yet, get one!  They're not expensive at all (especially if you can use a coupon at Michaels or Joanns).  I love mine, and have been going "bow crazy" this year.  I even made the topper for our Christmas tree this year with it.

Well, I'm quickly getting off track, so back to the topic:  which Christmas cartridge for the Cricut is your favorite?  

As I already mentioned, there's the new Winter Woodland.  It's getting my vote!

There's also the new Seasonal cartridges - When It's Cold Outside, Snow Friends, and Very Merry Tags.  If you're not familiar with these carts, they offer a limited number of cutouts, but they are very affordable!  I don't have any yet, but I have been debating picking up Snow Friends, just because I adore snowmen!

There's also two oldies but goodies - Joys of the Season and Christmas Cheer.  I love both of these cartridges!  Joys of the Season is more traditional, while Christmas Cheer takes a more whimsical approach (or should I say "Who-ville-ish"!).

There's also the Cricut Solutions Christmas cartridge.  I don't have this one, but it looks like it offers some good traditional style holiday cutouts.

Of course, there's at least a dozen more carts I could name (A Child's Year, Stretch Your Imagination, Designer's Calendar, etc.), but I think I have rambled on long enough.  Anyway, if you have a little time, leave a comment below naming your favorite Christmas cartridge for the Cricut...

  1. I love Christmas Noel…especially for the santa’s sleigh flying over the moon

  2. Hi Celina,

    I don’t have Christmas Noel (yet!), but from what I have seen, it does look like it has some beautiful images.

    I love Very Merry Tags! My family spoiled me this Christmas with a Cricut Create which they allowed me to use to decorate gifts for the staff at the kids’ school! I created tags, which I thought turned out just fabulous (matching in color, theme and scale) and I had a blast doing it! Who can say that about small gifts for about 15 people that took days to create?

  4. Hi Ruth,

    It’s a gift that keeps on giving (in a good way!). It sounds like it didn’t take you long to become hooked. Enjoy your new Create!
