'CINDY LOO' cartridge release June 2010 was originally aimed at providing a whole host of images and borders to finish your projects based on other cartridges.
The creative features are:- 'layer', 'border', 'frame', 'font', 'font layer' and 'shadow'. I think this cartridge is a GREAT one. I love the whimsical images that are not too complicated but have a big impact. There are some lovely floral designs and some art deco styled borders that would look lovely on any project. The font is great and the frame feature is very, very versatile. There are Cuttlebug Companion embossing folders available for this cartridge and you can even purchase individual images from Cricut.com using the 'Cricut Craft Room'.
My View... this is a great cartridge for both beginners and more advanced crafters, the frame feature alone will be used again and again! I'd wanted this cartridge for a long time, when I finally got it... I was not disappointed. There is a nice variety of words available from p. 65 onwards, making this a good all-rounder. It also has some lovely doily shapes which are very 'IN' at the moment. The cartridge has an envelope cut and a gift card cut, both of which are very handy.
My Verdict... Get it, you wouldn't regret it. This is one of my top 5.
Here's what I'd like to share with you today, a very simple but stunning card...
