Getting to Know my Cricut Expression 2 (E2)!

Cricut Expression E2

This is going to sound weird, but I really like my Cricut Expression. I got it about 3 years ago, and we’ve been through a lot of crafts together! I’m so familiar with my machine that, at this point, when I need to cut something, I can just load my mat and GO- I don’t have to think too hard.  I wasn’t sure I was going to like the new Cricut Expression 2– or an E2, with all of it’s fancy […]

New Cricut Expression 2 from Provocraft

Introducing the Cricut Expression 2!

As CHA was approaching, everyone was asking- what is Provocraft going to roll out for Winter 2011? This company has such a reputation for rolling out new-and-improved every six months, so I had to believe that there would be something up their sleeves. I had already seen the Yudu CardShop Machine, so I had a feeling there was another shoe yet to drop. And drop it did, on Friday night at the Cricut Gala! Ta-Da! In honor of the 5th […]

Cricut Imagine is the Next Big Thing

YES! It cuts AND prints!

  So, the new Cricut machine was leaked out to the Cricut Circle members last night, and debuted at CHA today to consumers and the media. Yes, the rumors were accurate- this is a machine that can print AND cut! This is the info I got from ProvoCraft: As a Cricut Circle member, we wanted to introduce you to the exciting new product being revealed and celebrated at CHA. Let’s hear a warm round of applause for Cricut Imagine, the […]

Cricut Circle: “I Drank the Kool-Aid”


Which is to say, I joined the Cricut Circle. What is that, you say? Well, it’s a new club- supposedly exclusive- that will offer benefits such as free cartridges, invites to swarms and galas, chances to get sneak peeks and before-market access, and a spiffy charm bracelet. (Yeah, I know, right?) The thing is, I’m not sure I NEEDED to join. The cost of the club is comparable to buying a new Cricut Expression or 4 full-price cartridges. And, while […]

My Gypsy Has Arrived!!

I was soooo sad when I hear that some of my crafty co-horts had received their Gypsies from ProvoCraft, and yet I was still Gypsy-less. However this AM, bright and early, I got a box on my doorstep! Here’s a little video of me unboxing my newest, coolest toy!

Cricut Gypsy Drops at Michaels October 4th!

Ok, you Cricut fans! I know you’ve heard of the Gypsy, that portable design tool for the Cricut electronic die-cut machine– and it’s coming to a Michael’s store near you! While I’m still waiting (we were promised one at Summer CHA…but it hasn’t arrived YET), you die-hard die-cutters can get one starting TODAY, October 4th! I was hoping to have one in my hot little hands to try it out and give you my impressions, but alas, I might need […]

Free Gypsy & Awesome Day at CHA Summer 2009

So, I know that it’s my FIRST Craft and Hobby Association trade show, but I’m tittering inside. I met Kathy Cano-Murillo (the Crafty Chica), the founder of SoftFlex Wire, the President of Sakura, Heidi Grace, Claudine Hellmuth, Traci Bautista, Tim Holtz, and ummmmm, yea- the president of ProvoCraft.  AND snagged a ticket to the gala tonight! While I’ve been told that this is a “small” show, by regular scrap/craft shows it’s still huge. Over 600 vendors, scads of make-and-takes, and […]
