Hello again faithful bog followers 🙂 I lied I do have a little bit more info I had forgotten about 🙂 but I so know you love me and my blog you will forgive me and just enjoy this great info coming up.

Ok so I have promo photos of the newest Cuttlebug embossing folders for summer and the holiday series as well that isn’t even here yet. I also have promo photos of the newest Yudu products that will be available very soon as well.

Also one more thing I think I forgot  to post in my other posts is that all the new cartridges are supposed to come out the beginning or the middle of September, the Gypsy should be out about the same time or a little later, same with the things I am about to talk about most are September releases some are available now too. Check out stores for more info on release dates and pre-ordering.

Ok so let’s start with the newest Cuttlebug embossing folders:

 

Diamond Plate

This is part of the 11 new folders that were recently released, I don’t believe they are available just anywhere though. I got them from QVC during a special they had about a month or so ago. I like this one it looks like metal flooring to me, or the neat plating on the sides of the Fire Trucks.

Flourish Frame

This is really pretty and could be used for journaling, or on the front of a card maybe with a simple stamp in the middle or the middle cut out and a photo placed behind it? The possibilities are endless.

I have to say I honestly am not sure what to do with this one, I know it says it’s for journaling, and I can see using it to make a list or something like that but other than that I am not sure what else I would do with it.

So those are the ones you may have already seen, especially if you shop at QVC.com or watch it on TV. I know I ordered them and I am by far not a TV shopper, but it was a really great deal. They had all but the cutting combo ones I believe.

So now we have the holiday or Winter 2009 embossing folder additions. I like these surprisingly, but I do like them, they could be used for a variety of projects not limited to just holiday ones.

So that’s what I have for the newest embossing folders for the Cuttlebug. I really like a lot of them, as usual they could be used for more than one thing and all are very nice.

 

Ok now onto the Yudu Update, I know there aren’t a whole lot of Yudu users out there but I love my Yudu machine, I have made about 20 t-shirts with it so far, I have used it to print on the Your Story book covers as well and I am sure I will use it for so much more as the year goes on. So anyway Provocraft has made some great additions to the Yudu family of products, things that will make our lives easier when it comes to printing with the Yudu.

Here are the photos:

Well there isn’t a photo for this but they have finally come out with 11×14 transparencies so we can fully utilize the emulsion sheets, no more wasted space, although you would need to have a large format printer to use these. You could draw on them or take them to kinkos maybe and have them print on it for you, the drawing thing doesn’t work out like it should no matter what kind of markers you use they just are not dark enough. Although you could also cut things out with your cricut and have a huge space to make a really cute design.

220 Mesh Screen

220 Mesh Screen

 

They have finally listened and are releasing a 220 Mesh Screen, this is great for anyone who likes to screen print on paper, the finer mesh allows for a better print on cardstock or paper. Great for printing invitations, or programs.

 

Adhesive Mat

Adhesive Mat

 

This is what you will need to print on paper and envelopes, the sticky on the Platen is to much it would tear a piece of paper, it has to be so sticky to hold the fabric on which leaves a little fuzz every time it’s taken off or moved around. So they came up with this plastic sheet. It is similar to the Cricut Mat in terms of stickiness, but it can be stick onto the platen and then removed easily since it is smooth on the back.

Emulsion Remover Concentrate with Sprayer

Emulsion Remover Concentrate with Sprayer

 

Sometimes I wonder if Provocraft has a secret camera installed in my house :). I put my emulsion remover into a small spray bottle so it wouldn’t get wasted and I could spray it just where I needed it. Then PC comes along and makes the same thing, suspicious I tell you 🙂

 

Emulsion Remover Concentrate Refill

Emulsion Remover Concentrate Refill

 

They offer just the concentrate by itself for refills, which is good so we don’t have to keep buying spray bottles we don’t really need. or you can potentially use the one you have already at your home so you don’t have to spend the extra money to get a “Yudu” one.
Leg/Sleeve Platen

Leg/Sleeve Platen

This one could be for lots of stuff, including tote bags, and arms of long sleeve shirts, legs of pants. Anything long and thin would be good to use with this.
Toddler/Baby Platen

Toddler/Baby Platen

I am very happy about this one and cannot wait to get one of these, I have 3 small kids and have been using cardboard inside the shirts for awhile now in order to print on them using the Yudu. What I would have to do it cut a piece of cardboard the size of the inside of the shirt, spray it with re-positional adhesive and place it inside the shirt or onesie, then place the shirt or onesie on to the platen. If you do this you have to make sure you spray both sides of the cardboard insert otherwise the shirt will slip and slide on the platen, ruining your hard work.
New Small, Medium, and Large Squeege Pack

New Small, Medium, and Large Squeegee Pack

No more using credit cards and old gift cards to squeegee with, now they will have a 3 pack of the large medium and small squeegees. I am excited about this product as well, I really need the small and medium one, badly enough to purchase a second large one because of it.
The Yudu Accessory Bag

The Yudu Accessory Bag

Here is an accessory bag to carry or keep all your smaller Yudu things in, like squeegees and ink and things like that. I haven’t seen one of these in person so I do not know the specs on it or how large it actually is, I know it was told to me that it is a shoulder bag for traveling with your Yudu (Which is silly because the Yudu itself is huge and does not travel well with that glass panel in it) like taking it to a buddies house to make shirts, or maybe for a fundraiser event, something like pay to make your own shirt with pre-made screens, I am hoping it is big enough to hold the screens as well that would be great, actually really great would be if it was big enough to hold the platens as well but I doubt that will happen. I will probably buy it anyway because I like the look of it.
Ok that was the last of my updates, now I promise this is the last of my CHA info I got, I apologize about this one not being on or before earlier posts, but things get lost sometimes, at least I did find the info and post it eventually 🙂
I really enjoyed going to CHA this year, it being my first show and all it was good in that respect, I will go next year to the trade show with the help of all of you as I need my blog to stay current, have industry related content for at least 12 months and be popular, so keep coming back and checking me out. I am hoping that I will be able to post everyday now that I don’t have massive amounts of information to type in each post 🙂 so by next year I should be eligible for the press pass and get a press kit and also be allowed to photo and video legally all of these things, as well as being exposed to loads of more info and more new products at the trade show. There was a difference between the 2, the Supershow had about 100 vendors there, the trade show had supposedly 600 vendors so there were things were not privy to as consumers, things the press was told about as well as shop owners, the people who needed to know about new stuff coming out soon. So needless to say I will be one of those people next year for sure 🙂
I hope you liked all my updates and like I said follow me regularly I will have lots of cool stuff for you, check out my next post in a few minutes it is going to have a link in it to a great new site you can become a Beta tester for :)……………….
