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 its fancy […]
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 […]
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. Letâ€™s hear a warm round of applause for Cricut Imagine, the […]
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 […]
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!
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 […]
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.Â 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 […]
