I have looked at this cartridge before at the store, but I didn't think I would use it too much until I used it at my sister's house. It is so cute. It has the sound each animal makes as well.
I held off buying this cartridge for a long time, until recently I couldn't figure what I would need it for. Well after a few trips to the zoo and some farms this spring I decided to to take the plunge.
After using it, I started to see all the things I could have done with it when my boys were younger, like an animal book with the sounds. However I am finding different uses as well like a pumpkin patch layout.
I like that the each animal also has its sound. I can also just do the head or cut the whole animal and then put in a different color paper, press shift and get detail cuts for dimension. For example I did the cow border in white and did the spots and hooves in black. This also does book marks and borders.
This is good for anyone who has kids, teaches, likes animals etc. Really fun cartridge.
I don't get a lot of use out of this cartridge. I guess it's because I don't know how to "dress up" the cut outs to make them look better because they are mostly one color and it's difficult to see the detail in the animals. I wish someone would come out with a cricut idea book so that I could see how to best use the cartridges on certain projects.
