Oh dear. Cricut has two new cartridges and I want them both!

One is Monster Bash - cutest little Halloween things on it. Gotta have it. Also has Halloween-themed doily images. Too cute! http://www.cricut.com/shopping/detail-depar tment-Monste...

Edge-to-Edge is the other new cartridge. Much like the lace one or Elegant Edges only it covers a full 12 x 12 - that is my understanding and the cuts are beautiful! That one is only available at Joanns. http://www.cricut.com/shopping/detail-depar tment-Edge-t...

I hope it is okay to link those here - I'm just showing what they look like!

I am wondering if that means the other cartridges with 12x12 cuts will also now cut a full 12x12? I am not sure how they can do this if the machine is limited. I am curious. Are you gonna get them Henri?

Yeah - I probably will. I linked above and the description says it cuts edge-to-edge so the entire page will be filled. Interesting. Look at it and see what you think but that is how I read it. Is the machine really limited or has it been limited by the programming on the other carts?

Since I got Cricut Craftroom I have gone crazy over carts - For the first time since I got my Cricut 4 years ago - I'm having fun with it!

It may be a limitation of the programing, not sure, but it would be nice if the programing applied to all the previous carts as well.....

Henri is evil and must be destroyed.

I need and want the edge to edge. It is about time they made one that could. I agree with Gwynn and hope the other cartridges could be. Even using the fit to page feature doesn't get the full 12 x 12. Do you think we will have to buy a new machine to get the full 12 x 12?

I cannot buy a new machine! Headed out in a few minutes to Joanns to see if they have this cartridge!

And will check out the haunted fences MS punch I want and the Monster Bash cartridge.

Got the edge-to-edge. It's $24.99 on sale at Joanns instead of $29.99.

However, they had the label that hangs from the peg but it is yellow - because it is a seasonal or special cartridge (goes away the end of 2013).

My Joanns had the label but couldn't find any cartridges. When checking they found that there were two in the store that Cricut sent but they were only able to locate 1 of them and that was after looking for 15 minutes and finding it in a box.

Like all the new Cricut boxes coming in - the new packages is about 4 x 4 or 5 x 5. It does not have the big spiral book or the keyboard overlay like the carts always have. Even the cartridges which have been out for a long time are coming in that size on reorders.

They sell a generic overlay for $2.99 and the package of the edge-to-edge said everyone needs that. When I got home I stopped to think - I don't need it! I am using it with Cricut Craft Room and I don't need the overlays with the CCR.

They did not have the Monster Bash yet. Didn't have the haunted fence punch yet. When I get those two things - my wish list is complete.

Yes you can view them there Henri Jean but you have to buy them from Close to My heart. Warning they are expensive but you get two fonts and about 200 images on each. I've used so much off of the first two that I'm seriously considering the last one.

I use philosophy the most, hoping to get the newest one next month.
I think I read somewhere they have over 600 images on them.

I've got to check out Close to my Heart, although I keep saying I'll quit buying them! I'm just getting worse!

I've heard philosophy is very good.

have you tried the edge to edge yet? I want a FULL review! I am skeptical because Cricut has advertised their previous carts with these types of papers as doing the full 12x12.... one of my biggest complaints is that the cricut advertised a full 12x12 and can't go to the edge...... Come on Henri, I want a review girl!

Thanks for educating me on the CTMH cartridges! I've seen Philosophy mentioned in different threads but had no idea you had to buy them through CTMH. I didn't even know CTMH made cartridges!

That didn't take much convincing, Sneezy! Love your page and all the embellishments! I assume that I will have to contact a CTMH rep in order to buy a cartridge. Is that correct? Or could I luck out and find a new one on some of the other sites?

yes you do , I forgot that part.
The cart comes in a kit so that you can stamp items cut with the cart.

Can you buy just the cartridge. I'm not a stamper. All I would be interested in would be the cartridge.

When I stamp I just make a mess. I have one stamp that was custom made - a drippy one and I treasure that one but other than that, not into stamping at all.

Linked the edge-to-edge cartridge and will play with it after I get these 7 Herculaneum pages off my desk that I started a few days ago. I think I can get them finished and ready to glue today so I can play with my new cartridge. Right now the 7 pages are on my scrap desk and I can't even really get to my Cricut to play with it without putting my pages aside.

One I get them ready to glue they will go in my projects file for the next crop. I just keep adding pages to tweak and glue. I think this will make 9 pages in my project file because I cleaned out my project file at a 3 day crop last weekend.

Glued 116 pages last weekend and got them finished. Next 3 day crop is in January so hope to have a big batch again so I can stay busy all weekend.

Unfortunately, you can't buy just the cartridge, but I love playing with stamps and have been using them a lot. Good luck with the new cartridge and let us know how you feel about it.

Henri looks like the edge to edge is 10 inches Here is a you tube

Was in my Cricut Craftroom account today and they added several free cartridges to my account!

One is called "Gears" - its not a real big cart but does have lot of cool gears.

FRIGHT - a full-sized cart and I love it. Great Halloween stuff on it.

Another - can't think of the name but it is a full sized and has lots of cool things on it.

They also added a couple carts to my account with 2 or 3 images.

I've been playing with those - going to test my Edge-to-Edge too. Just have to figure out what I want to cut and what I want to do with it.

I noticed yesterday that I had Fright cartridge in my CCR as well. For a minute I wondered if I had accidentally bought the Fright cartridge by mistake! I hope they leave them in our rooms and don't pull them back! Sounds like I better go check and see if I have the Gears cartridge and other one as well! This CCR just gets better and better!

I bought the Edge to Edge Cart yesterday at a JoAnn's where we'd been vacationing. Just got home late last night so haven't tried it.

I'm off to watch that utube video..

Henri; waiting to hear how you like it.

For whatever reason, on occasion they add promotional carts and then after a bit they are gone. boo

Wish there was a way to save some of the images on them. I didn't know they went away - just knew several had appeared which are adorable!

I've been playing with it but I haven't tried cutting anything. I have some layouts coming up that I can use one of them on so I'm trying to figure out what I want to do. Soon as I get my layout designed I'm going to use it.

The temporary carts are just that but while they are up you can cut with them. I knew I was doing a lot of halloween stuff this yr so cut a bunch last week.
