More new cartridges -

Six new Cricut cartridges were announced on Thursday - the second of three "Hello Thursdays" for the month of June. These are all full cartridges. 

The six new cartridges are 

Sophisticated (designed by Teresa Collins)

and Traveler  (exclusive to Creative Memories). 

The first five cartridges are already available on the site for $59.99, click HERE to go to the page (Phrases is showing out of stock at the moment).  One cartridge (Traveler) is exclusive to Creative Memories.  I have ordered this cartridge (consultants can order one of each new item early) but it won't be available to purchase on my Creative Memories website until July 1st.  I'll post a review once I have received it and have a chance to try it out.

If you click on the colorful names of each cartridge, the link will take you to the product page for the cartridge.  There do not seem to be any "Look Books" for these cartridges.

You should also visit the Official Cricut Blog to see more information and projects featuring the new cartridges.   Click HERE to go to the post for Hello Thursday.

You can see even more projects on the Hello Thursday blogs:

Retiring Cartridges

Six more cartridges will be retiring.  These are all on sale for $34.99 on the site right now (click the titles to link to the site) and can probably be found at other retailers for competitive prices.  If you want to see the full content of these cartridges you should go to the Cartridge Library on where you can find PDFs of the full handbooks.

When I checked Thursday night, the new cartridges had not been added to the Cartridge Library and there was not an update for Design Studio to include them.

I have just assembled the information and links for you in this post - I haven't really had a chance to look over the cartridge images in detail.  The Creative Memories cartridges have been excellent so far and it looks like Traveler will also be very good.  Ornamental Iron 2 is just the sort of thing I like and the designs on Sophisticated look useful to me as well.  The Summer and Autumn Celebrations cartridges and the Phrase cartridge will probably be ones that I'll need to see in detail to decide if there are enough images that I would use.  The style and type of layering on the Celebrations cartridges doesn't appeal to me at first glance and I am not sure how many of the Phrases I would use - I like to make my own phrases and word art.

(Can you guess where I am from the photos?  I am sure that a few of you can!).

Here is a sneak peek at part of the project I was going to post today (until I remembered that this was a month full of "Hello Thursdays").

  1. I was disappointed there were no look books available. You can never judge these carts until you see all there little secrets. Love to know what you find on you Traveler cart. I have a photo of a badminton birdie to go with you bow and arrow (from KC) ;- ) I don't know where you are though. Have fun!

  2. Have fun in the home of the Golden Gate bridge

  3. Hi Diane! Let me know when you are in town again. Would love to catch up like last year! Best, SF Pam
