While browsing around Cricut’s site I found this new product today. It’s a 10 DVD bundle of videos, how-to use the Cricut and 100 projects showing step by step instructions. It’s 216.00 but the intro bundle deal is if you buy it now you get a Personal Cricut free, also a sampler Cartridge with 600 images, and some Imagine how to Videos.

Cricut's New DVD's

 

This will be the new TV infomercial on late nights, it has the same pay a low fee up front (shipping of 24.95) and then a payment of 63.95 and 3 more payments of 72.00. This is not an economical way to go this makes the base price before shipping fees and processing fees 279.95. Now add on the 24.95 intital shipping for the DVD’s and another 24.95 for the Cricut’s shipping, and then there is 15.00 for processing the 3 72.00 payments (5.00 each month added on). Now your total for this bundle will be 344.85.

Not really such a deal when you get it that way. If you pay the 216.00 all at once, you still have to add the 2 24.95 shipping costs but you also get a Deep Cut Blade and housing Kit. That means ultimately your paying 265.90 for the bundle which is a much more reasonable price.

Ok enough with prices I know you’re talking to me through your computer right now saying “April, come on tell us what the heck we get for 216.00 already”. 🙂 ok so here’s what you get:

Bonus Kit

 

So that’s about it, I would love to get ahold of the DVD’s but unfortunately I could never talk my husband into spending 216.00 for DVD’s (Especially when he wants some DVD set, I think it’s the complete Mash series, that I keep saying is too expensive at about 150.00). Maybe someone I know will buy them and let me borrow them so I can at least watch them and return them, heck I would pay to have them mailed to me one at a time and mail them back to someone I just want to watch maybe take some notes, maybe learn something new. 🙂

You can also buy the DVD’s only and they come with the bonus kit contents, however it’s still 216.00.

This is a nice kit for beginners, I just wish they would offer the DVD’s for sale individually as well. Maybe they will later however I bet they will be 19.95 each that way, but you wouldn’t have to buy the ones you didn’t want.

So I am going to try to continue posting about some of the products I saw and used at the CHA Trade Show.

I am going to start with the Memory Keepers “Sew Easy” Product, here is a photo of the products that they are selling under the Sew Easy Label:

Sew Easy

So they have the Stitch Piercer and 6 different heads, a mat, needles, and floss.

First of all this product does not pierce the paper at all, it only makes an indent, also the heads that you put on it to help you make other stitches seem to make very similar marks. I tried to make it pierce the paper for about 5 minutes and then I asked the demonstrator if it was supposed to make holes or just indents and he said it was made to make indents.

So it’s misleading in my opinion as it is marketed as a piercer. Also the needles are the same as regular embroidery needles and the floss is just embroidery floss nothing more nothing less. You could buy all 3 colors in more quantity for a heck of a lot less money. 

Honestly I wouldn’t spend my money on this item, I like the Bazzill Basics In Stitch’z templates for sewing better, they are plastic and have holes in them where you take a pencil or pen and mark through the hole onto the paper, then you sew with a regular embroidery needle and DMC embroidery floss that costs .37 for 8.7 yards.

Bazzill Basics In Stitch'z

These come in tons of patterns including the basic ones like cross stitch and blanket stitch, and they also come in cute patterns like dogs and cats.

So I would get the Bazzill templates and pass on the Sew Easy I just don’t think it’s worth it for what it does or should I say what it doesn’t do.

Ok it looks like I got my internet back 🙂 I ended up staying in a hotel and their internet went down the night of the Cricut Gala so I couldn’t update that night and then I had to travel home so now I am back and on my own internet :).       

CHA was great I love going to the trade show, I got to go because Kim from Cutters Creek had a helper drop out at the last-minute, I had applied for a Blogger press pass but we get last priority and all the spots were filled fast so I was glad Kim invited me to help her!!!       

I saw some really great stuff this year at the show, let’s start with the thing everyone wanted to know more about the Cricut Imagine:       

Cricut Imagine

Cricut Imagine

As you can see by the pictures this is a large machine, the head is very much the same as the current Expression head, the mats are not interchangeable as far as old mats being able to be used in this machine, the reason is the new mats have black registration lines on them that the unit uses to print and then cut precisely. It will print on thin mediums like plastic sheets, vellum and regular paper, as well as thick mediums like thicker chipboard and thick cardboard like corrugated cardboards. I was told it will also cut all these items as well as it has a deeper than the current deep cut blade included.     

The inks will of course be replaceable at a cost of 34.99 for black and 39.99 for color and should be available at large scrapbooking and craft retailers as well as places like Wal-Mart. I think this is a good price for the inks it is comparable to current HP ink cartridges. I asked if the ink was waterproof and was told they couldn’t comment on that but he assumed it would be as well as archival quality. I asked why they chose to go with a single color cartridge over the multi cartridge types such as Epson has and HP has gone to on higher end printers and he said they decided to go with single cartridges because it would be easier to replace and would print more pages. I can see the advantages of the multiple color cartridge system but I also see their point of view as well.  They hinted around, at least when I asked, at future software having the ability to print from our computers, something like Design Studio but with the added ability to design a page or card from the bottom up by picking out the background pattern, adding elements and all on different layers to be cut out separately. I really hope this will happen, it wasn’t told to me for sure 100% coming but as I said a few PC people told me off the record this was the future they were hoping for and working towards.       

I really do like the projects I saw that were made with this machine, it’s like hybrid scrapbooking in a way but still different. I really like that you can print 12×12 patterned paper and it’s infinite so you’ll never run out of paper in the middle of a project, unless of course you run out of ink LOL :). I was told that you can print 125 12×12 pages on best per ink cartridge, this is a small number comparably I do realize that but maybe the cartridges are smaller or maybe the pictures are of a higher quality I will have to see more to know that. I do know that I can print about 800 pages on the text + image setting which is the normal equivalent, this is on my Epson. Now it has separated colors too so that may make a huge difference as I have a high-end HP printer that will get about 400 pages on normal and about 200 on best full color 8×11, the Epson would be full color 12×12, but on photo it might be more like 200 full color 12×12.       

Here are a few examples of some things that were cut and printed on the low setting and the high setting from what I was told:       

Printed and Cut with the Imagine on Best

Printed and Cut on the Imagine on Fast

Notice the vibrant crisp dark color on the top image which was printed on Best, and the muted washed out color on the cake this was done on fast. It’s still a good image and would look great distressed like take some sand paper and rub and scratch some of the image to make it look old. Maybe use some sepia ink or chalk around it to give a worn look.       

This shows the machine cutting things out after they were printed I really like the ability with the Imagine to print an image and then cut it into parts thus giving us the option to have depth to our projects, here are a few projects showing this: Cute layered cow project

A few more Imagine projects

The images that they have put together and the patterns for the backgrounds are really nice, I think the characters I saw were really cute like the chef and the cupcakes above so darn cute :).       

I really like everything I have seen from this machine and I cannot wait to get one, I was one of the few invited to the Gala so I will be receiving one from PC in the fall when they are finished and available to the public.       

The release date is sometime in October of 2010 in time for Christmas and will be featured on HSN. There should be a website live www.cricutimagine.com it’s not fully ready yet but make sure you keep checking it so you can see more about it as they release info.       

One thing I did ask was if they were working on the machine becoming backwards compatible with the current Cricut cartridges, an example would be the ability to print faces on the paper dolls or print accents that we have been drawing in on our own, or the ability to print the little things on cutouts like eyes or buttons etc. things that we need tweezers to place on now. I was told that no they were not considering that at least not right now, I asked if maybe there would be an accent Imagine cartridge made to go specifically with certain cartridges sort of like the new Cuttlebug folders. He said yes that this could be a better possibility in the future but it wasn’t something they had in the works right now.       

I have a few other photos from Provocraft showing the inks, mat, and some of the imagine cartridges:       

Cricut Imagine Ink Cartridges and Mat

Cricut Imagine Best Friends Cartridge

Cricut Imagine Cartridge that Comes With the Unit, Imagine More

Cricut Imagine Kates Kitchen Cartridge

Cricut Imagine Nursery Tales Cartridge

Cricut Imagine Yummy Cartridge

Some more Provocraft new things are a new Cuttlebug machine, it’s green and has a handle that lies flat now for easier storage, however I would have thought they would have made it better by changing the embossing size ability but they said that was not something they felt the public wanted at this time. Here are a few photos of the newer unit and some new folders I thought were really cute:       

New Cuttlebug Machine

New Cuttlebug Handle Out

New Cuttlebug Handle In

Party Bird Folder

Cars and Trucks Folder

Baseball Diamond Folder

Gecko Folder

Circus Monkey Folder

Juggling Circus Beaver Folder

Bowling Folder

 I didn’t get any more photos of the other folders but these were the few that really jumped out at me, I think he said there are 27 new 4 piece sets coming out this year and a ton of them coordinate with the cartridges already out, I didn’t see very many of those out on the table but the ones I saw were nice.       

I do have some images though straight from Provocraft notice the names as they go with the cartridge of the same name, see also some new names we haven’t seen yet:       

New Cuttlebug Folders

New Cuttlebug Folders

New Cuttlebug Folders

New Cuttlebug Folders

 These are the new names I was talking about, see above the “Coolio”, “Nifty Fifties”, “Birthday Bash”, and “Boys Will Be Boys” I do believe these will be the next 4 announced, but don’t hold me to that I am just guessing :).       

New Cuttlebug Folders - these are the dual purpose ones that emboss and cut all in one

Continuing with Provocraft product news Yudu has some great new products out this year as well, although lets hope that they keep their promise of them arriving in stores before Christmas as last year it took forever for the new stuff to come out. There is a new product called Screen Printing Adhesive and can be used with the new screen coming out only, the new screen will be a 70 mesh which is a more open mesh allowing the thicker glue medium to pass through it with ease.       

So this will give us the ability to make things with glitter, foil and flocking. All of which will also be sold by PC for the yudu, the glitter is pretty much a standard fine glitter and you could use Martha’s if you had it on hand before buying specific Yudu glitters. PC claims their Yudu glitter line will be washable and not wear off like regular glitter would but i do believe any glitter would work just fine. Next they have a foil sheet line so you would screen the glue let it dry tacky and then stick the foil sheet down and rub until it sticks to the glue these will come in various colors. And lastly they will have a flocking sheet that you do the same way, wait for the glue to become tacky and then stick down the flocking sheet and rub it until the flocking sticks and again these will come in various colors. I can see a huge potential in this product you could use it on paper products and wood and fabrics to add neat glitter, foil or flocking designs. Here are a few photos:       

Yudu Screen Printing Glue

Example of a shirt printed with ink first and then screened with glue and glitter added

Example of foil

So cute onsie with example of foil

Yudu Flocking Example

 I still love my Yudu machine and cannot wait until this stuff comes out I am going to make a ton of cool stuff.       

Ok onto the Cricut Cake, this machine seemed to have a huge following this year a lot bigger than I actually thought it would which is good, I wish I had a use for it to justify the purchase I just don’t make enough cakes and cupcakes right now, well I guess I do I make something every month of the year since we have a big family with 7 of us living here and a bunch of other family close by we have either a birthday or a holiday or both every month of the year. I still can’t afford to buy one of these those but I wouldn’t say no if PC offered me one to play with or if I won the one over on Martha Stewart. I do have the Cake Cartridge that comes with it though a friend of mine had an extra one from her bakery and she just gave it to me, I haven’t used it to create anything yet though.       

So here are the new products announced for this machine:       

Cricut Cake Premade Frosting Sheets

Cricut Cake New Tools and Covers

Cricut Cake New Aprons

So some of you know I was invited to the Cricut Imagine Gala, it was a blast I met some great new people and some I already know from the internet only. They had an airbrush tattoo artist giving tattoos to anyone who wanted one so we got in line and I got the Playboy Bunny on my chest it was the one he said no one had asked for yet and I thought why the heck not. They had music and finger foods and a bar out in the waiting area. They rushed us all into a great room with big fluffy white couches and more music dimmed lights and some high top tables. We got to see an awesome artist named David Garabaldi who did some really nifty painting with a DJ and awesome dance music. We watched the video footage of the 2 finalists stories for being the first to recieve an Imagine, got to see the Imagine introduced and hear them talk about it a little bit. At the end we all got a gift bag with a cool Imagine t-shirt, Cricut Imagine sunglasses (the same ones being given out at the trade show), a Cricut Cartridge, and a Certificate for a new Imagine machine 🙂 yep I said it we all got an Imagine. It was so awesome everyone screamed and jumped for joy definitely a joyful room. I got the cartridge I wanted which was “Country Life” I had been wanting this one because we live on a farm out in the country and it’s perfect for my life and my family. The other ones given out were the new ones Winter Frolic, Happy Hauntings, and Rock Princess.       

Here are a few photos, one of me and the 2 ladies I met and spent the entire Gala with (I am the one on the right), and a couple of the artist painting:

Alright finally I have a few photos of other products I liked at the show that I will share with you here not too many though, maybe I will post more in another post later but for now these are it :).       

One new paper line I love is the new Harry Potter line coming out I just love the papers and embellishments and who doesn’t have a son who went as Harry Potter at least one Holloween, I know my son has been him like 3 or 4 times but he looks oddly very much like Harry :).       

Harry Potter 2010 Paper Line From Creative Imaginations

I liked another one of their new lines a nice Halloween or Gothic Paper line:       

Creative Imaginations

I also liked this new line from Jillibean Soup called Chicken Soup it’s a farm based line and is just so super cute 🙂 :       

Jillibean Soup - Chicken Soup

Jillibean Soup - Chicken Soup

Look at those cute little piggies LOL 🙂 I just love them. I tell you I saw a farm, country, folk art type of trend this year in a lot of the new items as well as a continuation of the nature and outdoorsy animal trends from last year.       

I have a ton more info and photos but I wanted to get this stuff up as soon as I could so you all wouldn’t have to wait for too long, as it is it took me a few days after I finally got home from the show, I will start working on the rest of my photos and probably post more next week.       

And remember any questions you have about anything please feel free to post them I will try to answer them if I can 🙂

What is Letterpress Printing

The standard letterpress process involves printing words or designs with ink while simultaneously debossing it into a thick, soft paper. Over the past several years letterpress has seen a resurgence in popularity, evolving into a modern art form that epitomizes class and high quality. 

Letterpress as a modern trend:

Letterpress printing has seen a revival in the past few years, particularly due to the interest created by the use of letterpress for wedding invitations in contemporary magazines and websites. The popularity of this form of printing has continued to grow and become one of the most sought after looks for stationery, invitations, cards, gifts, coasters etc. Because of the size, price and lack of accessibility to a traditional letterpress machine, this art form has yet to become available to the everyday home crafter…until now. 

The Letterpress from L

The Letterpress from Lifestyle Crafts, or L, sets the standard for easy to use, affordable letterpress printing that’s practical for any home crafter. With the L Letterpress product line you can create handmade letterpress projects like cards, invitations, gifts, stationery and more. From simple day-to-day expressions and correspondence to momentous occasions like weddings and babies, the L Letterpress enables you to creatively celebrate every event in life.L Printing Plates feature fresh, contemporary designs that are divided into 5 categories:

  • Everyday
  • Baby
  • Celebrations
  • Wedding
  • Holiday

This innovative Letterpress solution is portable, efficient and certain to impress.

 

I am not sure if this can be used with other embossing machines, I will try and find out though. It does look interesting the craft itself, I think though I might be able to do something similar with my cuttlebug embossing and a sticky ink like that. Not sure though so don’t quote me on that, if this was a bit cheaper I would totally buy it to try it out. Anyway I’ll post again if I find out anything more, but in the meantime if you guys want to check it out or purchase it please head on over to Oh My Crafts and get it from them.

I just wanted to share with everyone a birthday card I made for my husbands birthday. I used for all solid colors Bazzil cardstock, the pattern paper is American Crafts, everything is cut by hand and the sentiment is written by hand, the Ribbon is a twill ribbon from Bobbin Ribbon.

Monster Birthday Card

Monster Birthday Card

Inside it reads “Hope You Have a Monster of a Birthday”

This is a really neat little cartridge, as far as I know it is a full cartridge with shapes and a font as well. It has the cutest elements for making your own calendars. This would be great for teachers or daycare workers, or even homeschoolers. Heck it would be great to use for at a job too make nice bulletin board calendars.

I did not get pictures of all the elements nor everything offered on this cartridge tht’s for sure, I was pressed for time and figured you would get the idea from the few photo’s I did get 🙂 I also apologize for any blury looking photos, my blog will only allow pictures to be so big and I cannot figure out how to get it let you click on it to see it’s true size, but you can still see mostly everything, if you wish to see a photo bigger and better please comment with your email on which one and I can email it to you 🙂

So those are the photos I got of this great cartridge, I can just think of so many things I will use this for I honestly wish these were available now before the start of the school year. But luckily they will be here soon after 🙂

Come back again soon I am posting about From My Kitchen cartridge next 🙂 It’s so super cute you won’t want to miss it 🙂

Alright let me take some time to get down some more of the Gypsy information I got at CHA.

The unit I played with was a beta so it didn’t have the full software loaded onto it, but it did have the design software on it and at least one cartridge of images to play around with. I was threatened bodily harm if I was to try and run with it though by a very big man 🙂 I assured him I just wanted to play with it for a bit 🙂

It is interesting and different using a stylus to pick things, I don’t like the roughness of the images but was told that would be changed in the final version, I also didn’t like the feature of moving your pen over the image and a larger version floating onscreen it made it hard to click on some things on the sides or on other images next to them as the larger pop up was in the way.

I still wish they would have introduced a free form drawing match system in this software where say you draw a daisy as best you can it would have matched all images that could wither be put together from you own carts or shown you images that were already made on existing carts. But I did mention this and was told they would pass along my info and see if corporate liked my ideas.

The Gypsy itself will hold 7000 cartridges and 10,000 images, however at launch it will only have the capability of 80 cartridges since that is what is currently offered by Provocraft now. You will be able to update the software via your PC and download firmware updates as well. So this lovely mobile device most likely will not fall behind in the world of technology.

Some great things I got to see was the ability to move the images around the mat with the stylus, so if you want to place it in the middle to build it and then move it to the top to save paper or for paper placement if using multiple colors of paper you just touch it and drag it up there.You can change the size by pressing the dots above and below the arrow, you can easily zoom in on your image and again touch the screen with the stylus and hold it on and draw around and it will drag the zoomed screen around.

It comes of course with 2 cartridges loaded, Gypsy Font and Gypsy Wanderings, Gypsy font is very much like Cursive 101 so I don’t think your really getting much there except a letter font right out of the gate if you didn’t have a cursive one, and then Wanderings is a bunch of images, I think I saw a skull, some flowers, some swirly things, it’s really just a basic offering of images I think look very similar to the ones we already have. That said I don’t think this unit is worth the money they are asking retail, 299.99 is a bit much. However they are using the 2 100.00 carts included which makes the unit only 100.00 however I don’t they are thinking about all of us who only buy carts when they are on sale and pay no more than 50.00 each for them. I still think it’s a great product I just don’t agree with the price point. But we also can think of a lot of their items that go on sale right off at launch too so we may see it for 200.00 in Michael’s launch week.

Another feature is being able to rotate images with the advanced tab with just a touch of your stylus, you can also make it lean left or right, flip the image upside down, and flip it side to side. Another feature is being able to group images, so you would select one letter and then touch group and select the other letters, now whatever you do to one gets done to all, like moving them around and sizing. This is great for moving to another part of the mat for cutting after you have finished designing.

When you purchase your Gypsy if you go online and register it you will get an additional software app as well, a photo app that will allow you to view and edit your photos on your Gypsy. The Gypsy has a battery life of about 4 hours, constant and 16 hours intermittent. It is compatible with Mac OSX, and Windows Vista 32 and 64 bit.

It does not erase your cartridges at all like some people originally thought, instead you hook up your cartridge via a special USB cable and upload the content onto the Gypsy, that cartridge then is married to your Gypsy making it impossible to load it onto another Gypsy unit. However the cartridge is fine and will work on any Cricut machine, that way you can load all your cartridges on your Gypsy and go to a crop party use your Gypsy and let your friends use your cartridges directly on their Cricut’s. This is great news in my opinion as I would not have even thought of purchasing the unit had it wiped out the cartridges.

I also love the search feature, I put in simple terms like flower and got a few flowers since it only had the 2 Gypsy cartridges on it, but then I searched for rock and roll and got the skull, I searched for food being vague and got an apple. So it works very nice and isn’t specific to certain words, you could search for a baby bottle or just baby and get specific results or broad results all dealing with baby.

The unit comes with a 12 month warranty so should something happen to it you can send it back in and they will send you a new unit with the same serial number programed into it, this way your cartridges can be reloaded easily. Depending on the damage or issue you may be charged a fee for the replacement unit though, so there are probably limitations to the warranty. If you lose your Gypsy or it gets stolen they can replace it as well with a new unit with the same serial number, at a cost of course.

You can also share your files between your Gypsy and CDS and vice versa, so the cut files are compatible. This is nice for those who do a lot of designing on the go and end up making really cool stuff and want to share with all their friends who do not have a Gypsy, if they have CDS they can cut the files.

All in all I think the Gypsy is a great addition to the Provocraft lineup, hopefully they will put some of these features in the existing CDS software, I am afraid they won’t due to wanting you to buy a Gypsy though. I still only have a few complaints, one being the price I think it’s way to high, 150.00 max would have been better, and two the fuzziness of the images. But those are minor adjustable things, I really like the product got to play with it for almost 20 minutes since it was the end of the show and didn’t really want to let it go. I wish I would have been able to get some video of it in action for all of you but alas I didn’t apply for my press pass in time.

Check back later for more Provocraft info on the new cartridges coming out, which I got photos of the cutouts, some info on the Yudu, and some ideas for the Your Story. Also a little bit about the Cuttlebug, it was a packed part of the booth so had a hard time getting photos and too much info on that one and I got a photo of the “Golden Cricut”.
