Exploring Cartridges: Give A Hoot

YAY! Another fun day of EXPLORING CARTRIDGES:) Today Holly and I are exploring the GIVE A HOOT Cartridge!
Here are a couple things I made using GIVE A HOOT cartridge:)

I think I have only used this cartridge once before. Holly and I decided this would be a good one because you rarely see projects made using this cartridge and it is an easy one to forget about. I looked through the handbook and found a ton of ADORABLE cuts on it. I love all the animals and it looked super simple to use. The layering is way easy and would be great for kid projects. This cartridge would be great for cards, scrapbook pages and school projects:) I will for sure be using this cartridge in the near future!

Look at what Holly made using the GIVE A HOOT cartridge

Here is what Holly had to say about this cartridge:

I bought this cartridge because I LOVE owls but after getting it I never used it. I was really stumped on what I should make with it so I put it away and forgot I had it. Once I started looking through the booklet, I realized that this cartridge is very versatile and that I will be using it a lot in many different ways. You can use it on anything from recycling bins to outdoor/camping scrapbooking pages to earth day cards. The possibilities are endless! I did need to make a manly Valentines Day card for my husband because while I LOVE pink he does not want a card covered in it. So I used the Earth cut out and some of my Changito the monkey stamps and made him a card. I really love how it turned out and I think he will too. Since we are exploring the cartridge I wanted to show another way that you could use it. I am teaching my boys about recycling right now and about preserving the Earth so I used the raccoon cut out and phrase and made a kid friendly recycling bin. They will enjoy seeing the raccoon every time they have a can to put in the bin. After using this cartridge I have many ideas of future projects and I think this will become one of my most used cartridges over time. To see how I made my projects please check out my blog at http://recycled-genius.blogspot.com/ and thank you Kassidy for inspiring me to use one of my forgotten cartridges!

What do you like most about GIVE A HOOT?


  1. Thanks Kassidy and Holly....I think LOL jk..
    Love your projects, I have had my eye on this cart for a bit, but not sure how much I would use it... now I really want it....
    I love when you explore the Carts, Thanks Kassidy.....

  2. Very cute. LOve the trash can image.

  3. I love the Tree Mendous card!! So cute. This is a cartridge that I dont own. I had it once and returned it. Maybe it deserves another look!

  4. The trash can is cool and I love your tree card. I have a thing for trees. I don't have many carts since I just started out so I don't have much to add, but thanks for the tidbits and projects!! :)

  5. I love this cart too! I don't use it as much as I should. Thanks for reminding me to pull it out again with these gorgeous projects :o)

  6. The recycle raccoon is great. So cute and sure to reel the kids in to use it! Great idea!

  7. great ideas. I would use this cartridge for my cub scout pages. My cub scout has done a ton of hikes and I haven't scrapbooked them yet. I would use that cartridge for that AND I would see what my son's teachers would like cut out for their classroom.

    As always YOU ARE GREAT!!!
