New Cricut Products – Fall 2022

Fall 2022 and Cricut releases many new products. Some will make you say “Didn’t that already exist?” so I suggest you read carefully to understand the subtleties!!!

Watercolor markers and cards

Of all the products launched this fall, this one is without a doubt the one I was most excited about!

I was so eager to tell you about it that I already have a complete post on the subject as well as a video showing you several special techniques.

Basically, Cricut launches watercolor markers and cards. The markers come in two sizes. One for the Joy and the other compatible with the Explore and Maker families.

The idea is that the Cricut draws with the markers. Then, with the help of the brush provided, you add water to “color” the image.

I will not say more, I will let you check out the full post by following this link… but not right away! There are still several other new products to see!

Glow-in-the-dark vinyl

We asked for it and had been waiting for it for a long time, the one and only “Glow-in-the-dark”.

And there is not just one type of Glow-in-the-dark vinyl, but two: removable vinyl (for walls, etc.) and Iron-On heat transfer vinyl (for clothing).

Under each new product, I will put you the same information in the same format:

Smart labels, writable vinyl, permanent and removable

Ok, that’s where it gets tough and you’re going to tell me it already exists! Yes and no.

Smart Labels in writable vinyl, permanent, sold in a roll and for the Joy only already existed.

Cricut is launching the same thing today, in an improved version!!

For the Cricut Joy

For the Joy, this vinyl will no longer be sold in a roll but flat.

In addition, it will be available in black, matte and transparent. These three colors will also be available in removable and permanent versions!! Did you follow me?

If like me you are a little lost looking at the packaging, I will draw your attention to the small logo, it helps to understand!!

On the other hand, you will have to look on the back to find the color of the Smart Label 🤷

  • Compatibility: Cricut Joy
  • Mat : no
  • Size: 4 sheets of 5.5″ x 13″ (14 cm x 33 cm)
  • Colours: Black, white, transparent
  • Price according to your location: Permanent, Removable

For Explore and Maker Families

Yes, there will now also be a version of the “Smart Label” for the Explore and Maker families.

Most of what was written for the Joy is also valid here with the exception of the format which will be in rolls!

You can also check the logos to differentiate them, but again, you will have to turn the packaging to identify the colour!

  • Compatibility: Cricut Explore 3 and Maker 3
  • Mat : no
  • Size: 13″ x 3 feet (33 cm x 0.9 m) roll
  • Colours: Black, white, transparent
  • Price according to your location: Permanent, Removable

Cricut Joy Smart Vinyle Matte Permanent

Now you tell me: “Now Natalie, this vinyl really already exists!!!”

Euh, nope!

In fact, the ones that exist are removable Matte vinyl and permanent glossy vinyl.

Cricut is releasing today the permanent matte 🤯 version in the Smart vinyl for the Cricut Joy. And not just in one color, in 14 different colors!

If you’re use vinyl frequently, you’re going to enjoy the matte finish, for real. It gives a completely different look!

Smart Vinyl, Matte Metallic, Removable

Here, what’s new is the “removable” part. Because yes, this vinyl already exists in permanent. Having it in a removable version allows you to use it in places where you might want to remove it one day like…

  • Compatibility: Cricut Explore 3 and Maker 3
  • Mat : no
  • Size: 13 in x 3 feet roll (33 cm x 0.9 m) and 13 in x 12 feet roll (33 cm x 3.6 m)
  • Colours: Silver and Champagne (gold)
  • Price : depending on your location

Cricut Joy permanent Markers

Yes, I did say permanent markers. That, too, we had been waiting for a long time. Unfortunately, they will only be available for the Cricut Joy (sad) and only partially available in Europe (doubly sad for my European friends).

Is Cricut doing a test to see if it’s worth offering for the Explore and Maker families and also outside the Americas? I can’t say, but I very much hope so!

But if I can comfort my European friends, it is the most beautiful colors that are available in Europe: metallic!

AND combined with the black Smart Label, wow!! 😍

Image courtesy of Cricut
  • Compatibility: Cricut Joy; Can be used on Smart Labels
  • Size: Sets of 3 markers (3 packs available)
  • Colours : Black, red, blue, green (available in Canada and US only) and Metallic available everywhere.
  • Price : depending on your location

Opaque gel pens

Can I do a little dance here? Yet another product we’ve all been waiting for!

Who doesn’t love having the opportunity to draw on dark paper? The opaque gel pens will allow you to do this and give a really great look!

Like all pens and markers, two formats are available. One format for the Joy and another for the Explore and Maker families.

  • Compatibility: Cricut Joy, Explore Family, Maker Family; Can be used on Smart Labels
  • Format: Pack of 3 markers for the Joy or pack of 5 markers for the Explore and Maker.
  • Colours: see the image above, it’s simpler 😉
  • Price : depending on your location

Glitter gel pens

These really already exist. Cricut was on the other hand aware of the “failures” that glitter gel pens sometimes had and therefore launches an improved version in more attractive colours, at least, in my opinion!

  • Compatibility: Cricut Joy, Explore Family, Maker Family; CANNOT be used on Smart Labels
  • Size: Pack of 10, 5 and 3 pens.
  • Colours: see the image above, it’s simpler 😉
  • Price : depending on your location

Phew, that’s it! So, what is your new favourite product?

Very nice BUT I am so very disappointed that Cricut does not have their faux leather any longer. At least I have not found it. I loved the colors.😭

Matte Permanent Vinyl is the best new product! I've ben frustrated before wanting a permanent label, but not glossy.
