Do You Speak Cricut Saturday - Spring Fever Holiday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Do You Speak Cricut? Every Saturday will feature a different Cricut cartridge review from one of the Made Especially For You design team members. This feature was added to the blog in order to give potential cartridge buyers a better idea of what each cart has to offer. Click here to view last week's Pack Your Bags cartridge review. This week, Jessica is going to share her review of the Spring Fever Holiday cartridge. 

Hi All!

This is Jessica from Craftin' and Stampin' and today I am here at Made Especially For You to go over my cartridge review!

Today’s review is on SPRING FEVER HOLIDAY Cricut cartridge. I chose this cartridge because I am OVER winter, but still feeling in a "LOVEY" kind of mood! Here is what the cartridge looks like:
This cartridge is a SOLUTIONS cartridge and was a cartridge made for the Cricut Expression 2 release that you could purchase from HSN.

It has a mix of images (lips, angel, cupid, hearts, etc) and phrases (love, sweetheart, xoxo, etc) from some of the more popular cartrdidges.
The Main Icon shapes are pictured below:

As you can see, there are images from Love Struck, Tie The Knot, Fabulous Finds, Pagoda, Sweet Treats, Mother's Day, Stamping, A Child's Year, Beyond Birthday, Pink Journey, Heritage, Wild Card,Wedding, All Mixed Up, Making the Grade, Printing Press, Doodlecharms, Mini Monograms, Alphalicious, Home Decor, New Arrival, Lyrical Letters, Stamped, Calligraphy Collection & Sweethearts. This cartridge took the best images from the more popular cartridges.
Here’s a look at the Keypad Overlay:
The images are made to be easily created and a quick SOLUTION for you when you need to finish a project in a hurry. This cartridge is also a great cartridge because you have the best images off of 25 cartridges! Could you image how much you would spend if you purchased all of these cartridges?

There is no booklet for this cartridge seeing there are only 50 Images/Phrases.

There are NO Creative Feature Keys – Instead, you will just utilize just <SHIFT> and <NON SHIFT>keys to create your images.
I will tell you that I have already posted one of my FAVORITE projects from this cartridge, and here it is:

I made this image using the <LIPS> + <LIPS-S> cuts on the cartridge. It took no time at all to cut. I was able to make this card in under 10 minutes.
This cartridge is does not have what you think would be on it. You would think with a name like SPRING FEVER HOLIDAY that you would have lots of Spring images on it. Instead, you have a lot of love images, hearts, and love phrases. I almost feel as though this image has images for things you would DO during Spring (Mother's Day, Weddings, Spring, etc).

So, if you are looking for a cartridge that has some really great images on it, and a lot of variety from many cartridges, this is the cartridge for you!

I hope this Cartridge Review helps you in your projects you chose to make with it!

OK guys, hope to catch you all Craftin' and Stampin'!

  1. Thanks for reviewing the carts- it always nice to have an independent review to really see if something would be useful. I would have to think about this one but your review has given me something to think about with it.
