Ten New Cricut Cartridges Just Released from Provo Craft–WooHoo!

OMG!!  I was soooo happy when I saw all the new Cricut cartridges that were released this week!!!  Because I’m a proud member of the Cricut Circle, I got to see them a day early on  “Hello Wednesday”, when Provo Craft posts them to the members-only Cricut Circle Blog.  But now that it’s Thursday, they are all listed for public view on the “Hello Thursday” section on the Cricut.com site on the Shopping tab.
  • Of course I was THRILLED to see another new Imagine cartridge (I just wished there would have been more of them for the Imagine in this release!!)!!    It’s the Cricut Imagine®Art Cartridge, “Greeting Cards Inside and Out” and it’s filled with birthday invitations, thank you cards, birth announcements, engagement and wedding announcements, and cards for all sorts of occasions.  Not only is it going to make it quick and super easy-peasy to make all sorts of cards, but I also absolutely LOVE all the new Imagine papers on this cartridge!!  Take a look:

(FYI, the little Cricut Circle emblem you see on the following Imagine papers is just their watermark to help protect these images on the internet!!  They are not an actual part of the papers.)

Aren’t those papers GORGEOUS and FUN??!!

  • Next up is the Cricut® Ole’ Cartridge” , which is packed full of striking images, Spanish phrases, and a bold layered font.  Wowee, is this cartridge ever overdue??!!  So cute, I can’t wait to make some fun invites for Tacos and Margaritas Night, LOL!!  Here it is:

  • Next is the Cricut® “Type Candy”  cartridge. This sweet Font cartridge features three darling fonts with shadows.  Each font includes uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, punctuation marks, and special characters. I am soooo thankful to see a full font cartridge again!!!  Take a peek:

  • Onto the next cartridge, and I fully admit that I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!  Just wait until you see this one, which is the Cricut® “Giant Flowers” Project cartridge !!!  All I can say is YIPPPPPEEEEE---more beautiful flowers—WooHoo!!!  You can use this cartridge to create larger-than-life flowers for a wedding, event, party, birthday, or home décor.  GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

2001194-Giant-Flowers-web-art- Aren’t they sooooo pretty??  With the larger size of these flowers I’m soooo glad that I ordered the new Petal Roller Tool -Fabric from Imaginisce because it has a much larger slot (wider and longer) where you insert the end of your flower in order to begin rolling it, than all my other rolling and quilling tools!!!  I think that’s going to come in really handy with these!!  I need this cartridge right now!!

  • Next up is the Cricut® “Bridal Shower” Event cartridge which includes a variety of images such as rings, clothing, phrases, 3D objects, and more.  This will certainly be a welcome cartridge with the wedding season coming upon us.  Our own family is having its very first wedding this summer when our oldest son, Matthew and his fiancée, Nancy, get married, so I’m sure I will be getting some great use out of this cartridge!  Let’s take a look while I ponder all the different ways I can use this cartridge:

2001291-Bridal-Shower-web-artOK, my mind is already spinning with ideas!!

  • So, what’s next you ask??  What’s the old saying?  First comes LOVE, then comes MARRIAGE, then comes “somebody” in a BABY CARRIAGE…?? Which means that the next logical life event on our cartridge reveal is the Cricut®  “Baby Shower” Event cartridge which you can use to create unforgettable invitations, decorations, party favors, table décor,  and more.

  • Last, but certainly not least is the latest and greatest Cricut® Circle Exclusive cartridge, the gorgeous “Letter Envy” cartridge which features an eclectic main font, bold crests, and an eye-catching second font with shadows.  Once again, please allow me take my hat off to the Circle folks up at Provo Craft who have really been doing a great job lately with proving us with fabulous content on the Circle Exclusive cartridges.  The Circle Exclusive cartridges are only available to members of the Cricut® Circle, and are automatically sent out to us each quarter (4 times a year!).  I wonder just how many of you who aren’t already part of this crafty club might be considering joining us when you see this gorgeous cartridge??!!

Maybe when I see the Provo Craft folks at CHA I can get a hint as to how soon the new Circle cartridge will land on my doorstep!
