Hello Thursday Walmart cartridge projects are coming...

Hello, everyone!!

Well, I just talked to Provo Craft and they are going to allow me to give you a little inside information. On Thursday of this week they will release 24 new cartridges that will be released at Walmart!!! When I get the ok on that day I will post all of my projects that I have been solidly working on for over a week now. Which is why I have not been posting much else. Twenty-Four cartridges means of coarse atleast 24 projects from me. So, hold tight and on Thursday you are going to be on inspiration overload!! Oh and we will have a few awesome prizes as well!

They also are having an additional release on the regular Hello Thursday day, so this month will be chocked full of fun, inspiration, and a little enabling!

Have a great day!!!

So thats why everything is on clearance at walmart and they are reworking the shelving. the lady there last night said something new is coming so they are getting rid of a lot of the old scrapbook stuff. Cricut carts for 34.00, lots of martha stewart on clearance also. Mindy1qc@msn.com

Melissa said...

I thought it was odd how quiet your blog has been...this explains it all! Can't wait to see your creations!

Angie said...

I am not happy about the idea of only getting from Walmart and for $39 each. I can't imagine there will be sales either unless you by multiple carts....

CuttlebugCourt said...

I'm so excited!

Carol said...

Great! It will be fun to go down to walmart and take a look at them.
Thanks for the info.

Dawnica said...

How exciting! I can't imagine how busy you've been! :)

Tammy said...

This is wonderful news...Can't wait to see all the wonderful things you have come up with.
Patiently waiting.
smiles...Tammy

Sandy Bayles said...

Releasing to who? Cannot wait...
My wish list just gets longer and longer....

Sandi Clarkson said...

Heard all about this and I see that people are buying even at that $39 price. Hope they will be released elesewhere at some point.

Kate said...

I'm so excited - and keeping my fingers crossed that one of those cartridges has the little nativity on it! I'm also hoping that the cartridges will be available in Canada too!

Sandy from Ukiah said...

How exciting...

Sassy Scrapin' said...

YAH! Come on Thursday, can't wait to see em!

pcrusberg said...

Thanks! I only wish that it wasn't a Walmart exclusive. Mine is so lame that I know they won't have a single one. Waaaahhhh! Can't wait to see you projects though. Pam

Grammy GG said...

Oh Melanie, you work too hard for us. I at least hope school is through for you or I know you will be one worn out lady when this is over. Take care and please know that there are many of us who so much appreciate all you do.

yvette said...

I am gonna get myself a job with provocraft UK or something, how on earth are we gonna afford 24 new cartridges?? Not to mention there is no walmart in the UK .....

Amy said...

This is all the talk on crafting blogs! I can't wait to see what you have created.

Kim. said...

Apart from the hard work for you how on earth do provocraft expect people to afford all these new carts they keep producing. Will these only be available in Walmart? We don't have one of those in the UK so where could we purchase these, any ideas?
Thanks for all your hardwork it is appreciated, I love to get ideas of what the cuts actually look like before buying a cartride.
Kim xXx

Grandma Nancy said...

A LITTLE enabling????!!! What an understatement!!

Kel said...

There's some great stuff on those cartd. Can't wait to see what you make!

niaggi said...

Is that going to be at all Walmarts?? The closes one to me usually has about 3 cartridges! It will be intersting to see how many they will have!! Thank you for the info!

Isabel Z said...

Yipee, I can't wait to see what is coming. I'll have to put my sister on Walmart alert since there isnt' one near me.

love2create said...

That explains why I got such great deals on craft stuff at Walmart this past week. But 24 new cartridges at once?! Looking forward to seeing your creations!

jules p said...

Holy Cow! 2-4 cartridges. That is neat. Which may be bad for my Wally credit card! ;);)

I am like the others...I am going to need to go back to work if I keep this obsession going!!

**Treefrog** said...

It's very exciting but wish they would have made them more price friendly for a minimal cart, you can buy a full cart for less than that, and only at WM, they NEVER have a sale on their craft things let alone Cricut stuff. I guess PC doesn't know what's going on in the economy. :(

I am so excited. I can hardly wait.

Wende said...

So excited! 24 at once! WOW!!!!

Works From The Attic said...

Thank you for the head's up! I guess that is why Wally World is clearing out their old merchandise.

Barbara said...

Thanks for the "heads up" Melanie. I also wondered why so much Cricut was on sale at Walmart. I can't wait to see your new projects!

pcmom114 said...

24 cartridges??? I wonder if the bank will give me a loan with the cartridges as collateral?

Kelly said...

Thanks for the heads up Melanie! See you all at WalMart on Thursday....LOL

Karen said...

Excited to hear they'll be in Walmart. Hopefully in the Canadian WalMarts, too and at a decent price. Most carts there are $90 currently.

Crafty Sue said...

Wish my WM were closer, it's 1 hr away.

Anonymous said...

Yay. New carts. I only know of 22 of them. Wonder what the other 2 could be.

Dreama said...

Waiting (not so) patiently. LOL
How exciting. Thanks!

I live about 45 min. from 3 wal-marts. They NEVER have any of the cartridges or scrapbooking suppllies that people say "their" wal-marts have in stock. OK, maybe they will have one or two things.

I have to buy things online if I want them. I am not happy about all these cartridges being sold "only" at wal-mart.

Jennifer said...

Yikes!!! I better go crawl under a rock and not come online anymore! This is way more enabling than my budget and space can handle...24 cartridges & other new releases?! This is exciting & scary at the same time! : 0

Thanks for all of your hard work, Melanie!!! :) You must be creating night and day. You know I won't be able to resist seeing your awesome handicrafts!

I was in my WalMart late last night & went by the scrapbooking area to see if there were any more markdowns. (I've gotten some great deals on their clearanced items!) WHAT did I see?!? 24 NEW CARTRIDGES that I had NO idea were coming out!! Talk about excited!!! My husband had to PRY me out of there! And since I wasn't allowed 1-2 hours to thoroughly check them out, I was hoping to see them online. Alas, they aren't there yet...
My WalMart usually carries only 5-6 carts also, so I was excited to see that there were 86 available at walmart.com! Hopefully the new carts will be available online for those of you not close to a WalMart.
Happy Crafting!!

Luv 2 Create said...

Oh no, I'm so excited - 24 new carts? WOW !!!! I definitely need a job to keep up my addiction now. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us either. Will I be shopping til I drop or glued to your blog come Thursday??? Probably both. Thanks, I think!!!!

ckeller219 said...

Can't wait to see all your hard work. Thanks for all you do.

Jingle said...

Are they the Cricut Lite carts? I think some stores already have them!

Connie said...

How exciting!!! Choose your poison wisely!! Can't wait to see everything!

mdog said...

Do I dare look!?

Angela said...

No wonder you're stressed! But we appreciate all you do and share. Can't believe there are so many new carts that I will want and obsess over.

Lissy said...

I wish you could give us more information. I did read on someone else's blog that they had these cricut lite cartridges that were all based on a team. I cant wait!

4kids4 said...

24 carts?? That's LOTS of enabling!! Can't wait!

Ms. Jen said...

Great news Melanie! I was hearing that people were seeing all the scrapbook stuff going on clearance at Walmarts throughout and thinking they weren't going to continue to stock stuff. So this is great news! I just wish Michaels would open an online store! It's so hard to get anything local here. 99% of my scrapbook shopping is done online.

Ann said...

WOW! GUESS YOU HAVE BEEN ON OVERLOAD! WE ALL WILL BE TOO! LOOKING FORWARD!

cardchick said...

exciting news....had a sneak peek already..where some carts are out already at a few WM's.....I want the florish one....

Jodie R said...

I can't wait! You know if you buy all 24 carts, it's only $936.00 plus tax. However, in California, tax is almost 80 bucks! Yikes!! Who cares! I can't wait!!

Crhiga said...

Yeah!!! Can hardly wait!!!

Carol

Dawn Edwards said...

How exciting I can't wait.

Nancy said...

Oh boy! Can't wait!!!

Got2BCrafting said...

Actually saw ONE Cricut Lite at Walmart today. (Baby theme one) Cute, but for $39 I would rather spend my money on a full cartridge. Of course I may suckered into one or two anyway! LOL Can't wait to see all your projects.
Thanks.

Beth said...

Wow, so many new carts. Very exciting.

tonka50 said...

I guess I'll be going broke soon.

Cute Cricut Corner said...

Can't wait They are killing me with all the new cartridges. LOL

Mary - Biker Granny said...

What an exciting month...ProvoCraft is really on the ball with all those new carts! Can't wait to see your projects...c'mon Thursday!! :)

June said...

WOOHOO - can't wait to see all of your gorgeous creations!!!!!!

Carla said...

More cartridges, what will we do with all these?!!!

Carla from Utah

JenE said...

Thanks for the update!

mahuntington said...

It will be interesting to see if the $39 price sticks for their new Lite carts. It's not like Wal Mart to sell something that's overpriced. I'm excited to see your projects. You must be exhausted!

Linda L said...

Wow I am looking forward to seeing what is new. Are they the Cricut Lite? What is that all about?
Is it WalMart only?

Janice M. said...

I'm so excited! I can hardly wait to see not only the cartridges but your awesome projects too!! Thanks for the info!

Grandma4Five said...

Can't believe it's a Walmart only line. Walmart has been closing many of their craft and sewing departments across the nation. Provo Craft knows best, so ...
Blessings, Donna

I just wanted to say that you did an awesome job on the spotlight of Picturesque in the Chirp today! I have had that cart since Christmas and have only used it once but you have given me some needed inspiration!

Carole N. said...

Hi Melanie! This is my first visit today. I saw your review of Picturesque in the Cricut Chirp and followed the link to your blog.

What a great card and scrapbook page you created. I LOVED both of them and boy, do I want the cartridge. LOL

Thanks for sharing all the great info about the new releases. I'll be back.

Hugs!

PB + J Designs said...

Wow I hope my Walmart gets them because where I live is alittle bit off the beaten path and sometimes we miss out on those things. Can't wait to see what cartridges they come out with.

Lori with: SimplyMadeScrapbooks said...

I'm so excited to hear about the Walmart release, It's not always easy for me to get to a craft store...so to think my 'down the street' walmart will soon have cartridges Hooray. thanks for the info.

Lori

Melissaward said...

PattiB said...

I'm will be so happy when Hello Thursday is here. I already bought 5 of the new cartridges from my local Walmart. They are so cute, but I can't link them to my Gypsy and hope that update is coming soon.
I can hardly wait for your card samples. I know they will be wonderful. Thank you.

Wife2TJ said...

How exciting!!! Can't wait!!! I am hoping to see something made from the Meow cartridge, I want this cart SO BADLY!!! lol! :-) Can't wait to see all your creations :-)

ScrappinT said...

I love all of your cards! I am going to have to see what my Wal Mart has!

I'm anxiously awaiting the big reveal!

KimberlyGrommes said...

Interesting to see all the comments here. While all the carts look so cute, I won't shop at Walmart even for these. I don't agree with how they do business.

Bytesprite said...

just viewed them all. Awesome carts. Kudos to Cricut for this round of new carts. Affordable and adorable!
