Surprise! Introducing Cricut Lite

Remember the sneak peak picture that we saw HERE. Well, apparently, the cat is out of the bag. Thank to Malinda for emailing me and telling me about the new Cricut Lite cartridges at Walmart. I made a Wally run for myself and below you'll see the pictures of the ones my store had. At the bottom of the post, you'll see other titles that are available. As soon as I have pictures, I'll share, in the mean time, check your store as they may have them. Now that's the good news...the bad news? These LITE cartridges are $39. HOWEVER, they don't seem to be as 'lite' as the Solutions cartridges so it may not be too bad after all. To see Varsity Letter, Sugar & Spice, Cupcake Wrappers, Carousel, Cherry Limeade, Bloom, B is for Boy, Splish Splash, Billionaire, Savory, Lacy Labels, Wildlife and Meow, click HERE.

Live Simply is lots of cutesy characters. Not my cup of tea but some do like cutesy.




Lovely Floral appears to have 50 images/phrases and maybe even a font. I can't really tell yet.





Next is Hoot 'N' Holler. Another cutesy owl cartridge. It appears to have a few phrases on it too but no font.




Celebrate With Flourish is chock full of (surprise) Flourishes among other things. All come with jackets, handbooks and overlays.

  1. Wow, I was at my local store today and didn't see anything like these. Beleive me I would have noticed too!
    I'm liking the "Celebrate with Flourish" just from what I see on the front.
    Can't wait to see what "Handy Man" and "Dude" will be.
    Are they in regular cricut boxes?
    Thanks for posting this exciting news.

  10. Wow, quite a few interesting ones! It looks like the cat people are finally getting a cartridge! I hope the price comes down -- kind of pricey buying 6 or 7 cartridges at $39 each! LOL!!

  11. Will these be on Design Studio? Or can you only have the Cartridge? there is no mention of a Design Studio update?

  15. Well this is certainly a surprise! I have been hoping for a cat cart and now I have to wrestle with my abhorrence with shopping at WM for the wanted item. Right now I can say no (but I really want a cat cart!), $39 seems a bit high for a lite cart...I don't spend that on a full cart. Decisions. Decisions. Thanks for the update!

  16. Our WM has all their papercrafting items on sale including Martha Stewart. The only carts they have are really old ones still too high at $60! They are getting ready to remodel so maybe they will be having a new craft section....I hope. These new carts seem a little pricey for what you get on them.

  17. Well Poo...I went to two different Walmarts and mine don't have them in.
    Looking forward to seeing more about them.
    Thanks!

  19. Lois, Maybe your in a 'rich' area? All the reports I'm seeing are for $39. I don't know what gives. Sorry. ~Linda

  20. I haven't seen these yet but hope my Walmart gets them!

  21. 39 seems high to me too. I usually by mine online. Sometimes the solutions you can get for 15 on ebay and such. I do like the new carts but 39 will not even temp me. But they are cute. :)

  23. Lilirose, I was talking to one of the employees at my Walmart and she said to tell everybody that most of the Walmart's are resetting the craft shelves next week so those that don't have them out are probably just waiting for the reset. ~Linda
