Simply Sweet & Stand And Salute

Here's a few images for the new Cricut cartridges Simply Sweet and Stand & Salute. (Click on the pictures for a better look). I've noticed in the comments below we're seeing alot of thumbs down for Simply Sweet (I agree...looks too much like a few of the other cartridges) and then several comments about the lack of whatever on Stand and Salute so I wanted to remind you guys that this is just the cover shot. Don't forget that for every creative feature that there is, is 50 more images. I can't wait to see what else is on this cartridge and will be doing a cheat sheet as soon as I get all the images. I personally think that it's going to be a "gotta have"! And not just for those wanting military or patriotic shapes, I'm thinking for little boy layouts too!! Yep, a gotta have!

  1. Oh my goodness... These look so amazing! I hope the rumours are true and PC does another amazing bundle offer :) I've got to get my hands on these. And I am Canadian too ~ I still am wanting the Stand & Salute cartridge.

    Linda, thanks for showing us these pics. It's a nice tease of things to come.

  2. I'm not sure this Simply Sweet cart will sell well. It looks like the same stuff you can get on other carts. The other one looks very versatile and it should be a big seller. Thanks for the info :)

  5. While they are nice, I am not very interested with either, as Simply Sweet has a lot from other carts and the military one is useful if you have someone in the forces which I don't so would not use...thanks for showing these though...you are very thoughtful...Sheree (Downunder)

  6. When I first looked at Simply Sweet I thought, I have seen this before. I just compared my Makin' the Grade cartridge and the letters all look the same. Oops!!

  7. The font is cute but the "extras" on it aren't all that unique. The Stand & Salute cart is cool. That may be a NECESSITY! Thanks for the update

  8. Simply Sweet does nothing for me. Looks too similar to a couple existing fonts and has some sayings from various carts. I love Stand & Salute, though. I hope it comes out soon - and I mean comes to brick & mortar stores soon, not just online.

  9. I am so going to get the Stand and Salute Cart. I am an Army Wife and this is something I have been waiting for to come out. I will most likely buy this at full price. Hopefully there will be a sale right as it comes out.

    I will probably not buy the other one though. Have to many fonts similar to that one.

  14. Ok, I see little boy layouts too but also travel. I also agree...the simply sweet one looks alot like some we already have. But as you said there are creative features to look forward to... maybe there will be other choices in fonts. That would be cool!

  15. I love the Stand & Salute and though I'm sad to that they forgot our US Coast Guard I can still use it for the rest of the family in other branches of service & Boy layouts too!
    Simply Sweet, I don't have alot of fonts so if it's a bundle then I would buy it but not by itself just not unique enough to make me want it like SB or LL.

    Thanks for sharing these pictures and making the S&S a must have in my book!

  17. I can't wait for the Stand and Salute to come out. I have a niece that just came back from Iraq and I've got a lot of her pictures to scrapbook this will come in handy. I might even get out my husband and my Dad's picture and scrapbook them as well.

    Yeah, I can think of a few more things that they could have put on the Stand & Salute Cart. Like the branch logos, branch names, different ranks of the branches, cross cannons for Artillery, POW, MIA, & KIA. Those are just a few of the ones I can think of and then of course, they need to add the Coast Guard.

  20. April, those may be on there...I can't wait to see the whole cartridge! ~Linda

  21. I don't think they forgot the Coast Guard--second row from the bottom, first image, that looks like a Coast Guard boat to me.
