CHA New Stuff

Sorry this is a rather long one, I've had to combine several days' worth as internet connection here is really hit and miss. Unless I want to pay $95 a day for an internet connection, at Starbucks in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel! Of course I had to have a white chocolate mocha and a slice of marshmallow dream bar while I thought long and hard over that decision!

Hey look, it's a red Cricut.

Ah, but this is no ordinary Cricut. This is the Cricut Cake. It's a Cricut with all parts being food safe and aimed at the cake decorating/sugar crafters among you. The idea is that you can cut icing based on any Cricut cartridge design, and stick it straight on your cake.
Now I can't see that I'm going to have much use for it but there must be a market out there for it somewhere. At least the cartridges they've designed for this machine are however compatible with the other Cricut machines. Here's a quick sneak peek of some new cartridges coming out (or have already been launched):

Here's some pics of the new embossing folders that Provocraft have/are launching for the Cuttlebug:

Bazzill are bringing out more embossed cardstock and more glazed designs:

but they are discontinuing their Destinations range and some Bling colours, So be warned, if you have projects using the Destinations range and you think you need more supplies, buy now before it's no longer available.

Bazzill are also releasing some new big blingy like buttons (looks more like something you would wear on your finger to me!!)

Magnolia's new collection (that you can already pre-order from our website) is just amazing:

Sizzix are definitely progressing and getting better all the time.
They've teamed up with Tim Holtz and bringing out a line with his designs both in die and in embossing folders:

and then there's this new puppy. The E-clips.

It is just the coolest new electronic die cutting toy. But not going to be available til later in the summer - how mean can they be teasing us so?

For the Making Memories Slice machine, there's more cartridges on the way:

and they've now made it in such a way that you don't have to hold the machine in place while it cuts as it's got magnets in it and holds in place to a magnetic mat.
All these guys are not hanging on the wall but just held in place due to the magnets:

Zutter have brought out a cutter for cutting really thick chipboard

a gadget for distressing the edges of card\paper

very noisy (the prototype anyhow) and seems expensive for what it is.

Stampavie have released some lovely new Sarah Kay designs (already ordered, instore soon):

Watch out for new stuff coming instore soon:

Right then, back to it, more reports to follow
meanwhile, happy stamping

Hi Andy and Janice

That's the best excuse I've heard for coffee and creamy cake - a dream slice did you call it ?

So so many new goodies, I 'need' so many of them and can't find a notepad big enought to write up my order.

I have started writing up my Penny Black list thought from the sneak peeks - that poppy collage and their own version of cutie then the new sentiments - ooooh I need.

Enjoy the rest of your time in the States, hopefully it's warmer than back here. You might need to put your thermals on before you land.

Thanks for taking the time to share all this with us.

Hi Janice & Andy, Let me just say - there is quite a lot of ooohing & aaaaring going on!
Must say I love it all, especially the Tilda with pirate flag (I love skull & crossbones, must be something to do with me being a bit gothy many moons ago!!!) - hope this will be available as it is an absolute must.
Enjoy the rest of your stay.
See you soon - Hugs Fleur xXx

Glad to hear you're having a good time and thanks for sharing all the goodies.

Oh no don't show me gadgets as I may have to buy them all!
I saw the Tim Holtz suitcase die cutter on his blog too.
Now I have the Pink Slice it is typical they have now improved it!
As for the cake Cricut, there are a lot of sugar crafters out there so there could be a market.
