Going, going, gone...
About a week ago, I posted about the re-released Creative Memories cartridges. These cartridges were originally sold exclusively by Creative Memories consultants and the regular price was $55 for most of them. They are now available on the Cricut website at a sale price of $29.99. You can find the re-released Creative Memories cartridges HERE.
With the current sale offering of 30% off all images when you use the code SPRING30, the cartridges are only $20.99. This is a fantastic price for these cartridges. Be sure to shop for as many cartridges as you want in one order since this code can only be used once. NOTE - If you have a problem applying the code, make sure your shopping cart has only cartridges or image sets in it and then do a separate order for any other items (see the tips about clearance items at the end of this post!).
These cartridges are sold only in physical form, while supplies last, and won't be available as digital cartridges or as a part of a Design Space subscription. So this is your last chance to get these images (and the price with the sale is great!).
Several people asked me which of these cartridges I like the most. The cartridges tend to be very topical so it would depend on how many other baby, wedding, sports, holiday, etc. cartridges you have and whether the images on the Creative Memories cartridges are different from the things you have already.
My personal favorites are:
The Reminisce Accents cartridge which is elegant and classic. It is something like Damask Decor in style. It is lovely for heritage scrapbooking projects but also great for cards. I used it for this page showing three generations in my family.
I think 'Tis the Season is a wonderful Christmas cartridge. It has about half traditional images and half more whimsical holiday designs. There are quite a few phrases with images like the one on this card.
Stork's Delivery is a nice baby cartridge if you don't have many baby images. I like Tiny Treasures a little bit better because it also has lots of 3D items, like these cute elephant favor boxes (but the font on Stork's Delivery is really nice).
Divine Wedding has very detailed and lovely layered images that are not too hard to put together.
Traveler and Total Sports are two that I haven't used as much, probably because these topics are ones that I need less frequently. Be Young and This and That are popular with a lot of people but don't really fit my family as well.
All of the cartridges have fonts - some have multiple fonts and there are some really nice fonts that are a bit unusual. If you want to see exactly what is on the cartridges, you can check out the handbooks HERE. They are all listed under "C" - the names start with "Creative Memories" on each cartridge.
You should know that the Best of Times cartridge is much smaller than the others. It was a limited edition cartridge that only came with the Cricut machines sold through Creative Memories. There is no overlay for this cartridge since it was meant to be used with the Expression 2. It is a "rare" cartridge, but there is not a lot on it.
Two of the cartridges (Cheerful Seasons and Holiday Frames and Tags) have already sold out. I do not know how many of the other cartridges are left to sell but if you want any of them you should order right away!
Once again, these cartridges are sold only in physical form, while supplies last, and won't be available as digital cartridges or part of a Design Space subscription. So this is your last chance to get these images (and the price with the sale is great!).
