Cartridge Showcase: Straight From the Nest

Welcome to Cooking With Cricut's Cartridge Showcase. Chef Jill has taken over the blog today is sharing with you some beautiful projects she has made with Cricut's Straight From the Nest cartridge.  You can create projects that celebrate the naturally beautiful things in life with this cartridge.  It is filled with images of birds, butterflies, flowers, cupcakes, branches, swirls, and more.  Straight From the Nest includes: Layer/Shadow, Corner, Slider, Border, Phrase, and Phrase Shadow creative features.

Hi everyone! This is Chef Jill and today, I'm going to try to do my favorite cartridge justice and showcase it! Straight From the Nest is a cartridge I won in a giveaway! This cartridge is my favorite because of the versatility of it. There are sayings, corners, images, borders, and layers! What a great cartridge!

Here are the projects I came up with:

This is a birthday card I made for my friend. The chickens are the border option on Straight From the Nest. You can check it out on my blog here.

Here is a topiary I made using the little flowers from Straight From the Nest.

This is a card I made for my husband, but the cool thing about this card is that instead of using paper as my card base, I used a transparency! The shape behind the eyeball is from Straight from the Nest.

The "Fall" is a corner feature in this cartridge but I enlarged it up and used it in this sign I made for my home. You can check it out on my blog here.

Here is a Christmas Card book I made. The green border is from Straight from the Nest. You can check it out on my blog here.

This is a gift I made for my friend. The owl is actually a corner option, but I cut off the sides so the owl would fit. You can check it out at my blog here.

Thanks so much for checking out my showcase! Like I said . . . this cartridge is amazing!
Smiles, Jill
