Best Girl Cricut Cartridge of 2010

For this category, I was looking for the cartridge that has a font or great word art, girly images and any extra fun items that are particularly girly.

Here are the contenders for the category of Best Girl Cricut Cartridge of 2010:

1) Cricut Rock Princess Cartridge:  Funky girl meets rock star in this tween girl cartridge full of word art, fun images, and two fonts (heart and skull).

2) Cricut Once Upon A Princess Cartridge:  I do love this cartridge.  The layered word art is amazing and the tag section is great for making journaling boxes, decorative elements, etc.

3) Cricut Slumber Party Lite Cartridge:  This is such a cute, quick and easy cartridge to use.  Only a few layers and all of them backed by a fixed shape.  Lots of things that would be perfect for a girls' slumber party!

Let's hear a drum roll, please.....the winner of the Best Girl Cricut Cartridge is the......

I chose Once Upon A Princess because of the sheer volume of different items it has!  Here are some of the things this cartridge has:

- Paper Princess Dolls plus many other layered images
- 2 Fonts
- A whole layered Tag Feature key (100 images)
- 50 layered word art images
- a 3-D castle
- 2 party invitations with envelopes
- a wand and two crowns for the kids to wear/play with

  2. based on these three, I must agree with your pick!

  3. My favorite girly cartridge is "Tie the Knot" - I know it's not on your list, but I'm a girl who just got engaged and that cartridge is alllll I play with right now. It's soooo cute for the "grown-up" girls who've dreamed of thier fairy tale wedding!

  4. I only have boys so it's hard to have anthing girly, but am so glad to know your picks.

    Was "Forever Young" a 2010 or was it 2009? Anyway, I loved the purses on that one.

  9. I'm totally loving your best of the year aseries. Some of these cartridges I didn't give much thought to but now, I think they are all must haves :)

  10. Yeah, the girl carts are hard. I don't have girls so I can't say I have used any of them. But I am going to get Sugar and Spice to make into boy things!


  11. Great choices...have all but slumber party but the graphics on this cart are also on forever young the only one you didn't mention that I love is Sugar and Spice...but for the best one overall is Once Upon a Princess.
    Tnx 4 all of your outstanding ideas

  15. I agree with you. Once Upon A Princess has it all and lots of it. It is another that I haven't purchased yet but plan to. I have lots of little girl pages to scrap. She is 11 now and it still works for her some of the time although I see Rock Princess in my future as well.

  16. My 5 year old granddaughter LOVES princesses so of course the "Once Upon a Princess" wins hands down! I don't have this cart,,,,,,,, YET!

  17. I have all three,and love them,but I think I am tied between Forever Young and Rock Princess, as my favorite. I have grown daughters and lots of diva girlfriends, so these two have been great for cards.

  18. Well I don't own any of them because I have ALL BOYS! But if I had any girls I probably would pick the Princess cartridge too.... It looks perfect for the girly girls of the world! LOL :o)

  19. that is the one I would of picked!
    Happy New Year!

  20. I'm finding this information so helpful. I agree with all your choices. I've often wondered about certain carts, if it is worth the money. I'm now looking for Give a Hoot and Happy Hauntings to purchase. I bought Oct.31 but I was disappointed.I wouldn't have bought it if I saw your recommendations. I faithfully read your blog.

  21. Wow, who knew that Once Upon A Princess had that much to offer. I thought it was just images. Guess I need to take a look at some of these carts with my gypsy. Excellent choice!

  22. I bought Forever Young for my "Girlie" cartridge. I don't need a cartridge for "little" girls anymore so more the young lady type was what I was looking for.

  23. I only have grandsons so I don't get to play with little girl images much. All these cartridges make me want a grnaddaughter but I don't think my daughter and son-in-law agree.

  24. Unfortunately, I do not have any little girls, but if I did, I would choose this one. I have a grown daughter and daughter-in-law and use the Forever Young Cart. to make most of their cards. Especially love the purses to hide little gifts inside. Sandra
