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
