nice but confusing
The art is gorgeous on this cartridge. I can see myself making a lot with it but the layering could have been a little easier and the instructions more user friendly. I find that I cut pieces and don't need them or are the wrong color so I have wasted a bit of paper but even with the complications I love it and will figure it out.

Very Confusing Cartridge
The images look pretty, but I just don't understand how to put anything together in this cartridge. Would love to see some examples on how to use the layering.

I found that the pictures are very complicated to put together. I agree that there should be more instructions how to layer. I ended up wasting a lot of paper because I cut items I did not need.

Great Christmas Cart
I love the designs on this cart! I had no problems with any of the cuts or assembly.
Others have noted that there needs to be better instructions for the layers. I found that if you look in the handbook, the images in the top corner are colored to match up with the images for the function keys.

Too difficult, too intricate and not very user friendly with Original Cricut. Very disappointed

I love, love, love this cartridge. The fact that it is so detailed makes everything that much more beautiful. I also love that we can do everything plain or fancy!

plain paper only
I have gone through $20 in paper. This has the potential to cut beautiful thinhs, but anytime I use a textured paper or glittered it destroys the paper
not worth the head aches

Can NOT cut below 5 inches on ANYTHING!!
buyer be ware! All images must b cut above 5 inches or they will not work...like at all! Not what I was expecting or wanting!! This cartridge HAD the potential to b awesome...but all u can do with it really is print large cards. Another disappointing Cricut product!!

Layering and sizing
The layers do not fit together so I can not get a unified design. Sizing is bizarre. At the recommended 5 inches, the border designs are gigantic. If I try to make them smaller the paper rips and the design is not accurate.
This could have been a beautiful set, unfortunately it doesn't live up to its price.

Classic Christmas images and Cards
I love the classic Christmas images in this cartridge. I don't find it hard to put the layered images together. I always have my book open to the image that I want to cut and I cut each layer one color at a time (based on the final picture in the top left). I love the large selection of cards in the cart. I like that I can use the layered images to make cards or decor. I was a bit surprised that there wasn't an envelope cut on this cartridge though. This isn't a big deal for me since I can make one on my scoreboard anyway.

Not for use with original cricut
I bought this to make Christmas cards. Instructions are very difficult, wasted a lot of paper. Lastly, the cartridge recommends making cuts no smaller than 5 inches! I have the first cricut, 6 x 12 size. Now I am stuck with this because I can't return it. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it.

This has to be one of the prettiest cartridges. My mother and I used it to make Christmas banners and they turned out stunning. Not sure why everyone has problems with the layers - it is all color coordinated and we did not waste one piece of paper.

its a good cartridge to add to you collection
This is a very good cartridge, the only problem are the instructions because they are a little confusing. You really have to pay attention to what you are cutting because there are four cuts for each one and if you don't pay attention you may end up cutting different layers. I think Provo Craft should have made the instructions a little bit more detailed.

Deliciously Detailed Christmas Holiday
This cartridge can be use to create as intricate or amazingly simple Christmas art as you want. We have twins and I used my Gypsy to flip and weld little girls holding dolls together. For ease, I used silhouette to cut. Fantastic. I can't wait to create more. Wonderful Nativity to add to my collection.

I really do like this cartridge! I love the simpleness of the people yet they are spiced up! This cartridge has classic Christmas characters!

Looked at this a couple times while in Jo-Ann's. I bought it even after reading 2 existing reviews. The images are gorgeous and yes, a little time consuming piecing together, but the final result worth the time. I like that this cartridge is a little more realistic than others. For me scrapbooking and card making is relaxing and I get lost in it, so I don't mind the little extra time needed to piece together.

This is a wonderful cartridge. For just winter fun and Christmas, nativity is beautiful,and even Scrooge. I'm so glad I have it.
