CHA Product Pics

The Gypsy by Provo Craft. It is basically the Design Studion on the go. It has a stylus and is very light. You can upload all your cartridges to this machine via a cord - but once you load it on one Gypsy it cannot be loaded on to another. You can still use the cartridge with your machine. It comes preloaded with two cartridges. It is PC and MAC compatiable. I connects via a USB cord to your computer and you can save cut files from gypsy to computer and vice versa. You can also upload pictures and connect it directly to printer to print pictures. You no longer need your books because if you hit shit lock it gives you all options for the key (i.e. disney). Battery life is 4 hours continuous use. It will retail for about $299.00. Also 4 new cartridges, a kitchen one, paper dolls, wedding/love, and christmas/winter - with this one you can cut and make 3D houses - like a minature christmas village.

Off to CHA

Here are the new stamps from Hero Arts called clings - they are rubber stamps like you see on the wood block except they are not mounted and cling to the acrylic block. These were hand cut but will be laser cut when released.

The acrylic was inked using the refill ink from copic markes - we even air brushed using the copic markes - way cool. the second pic is actuall an acrylic sheet sent through a printer and printed a digital template from Prima and colored with copic markers.

I landed in Orlando, FL on Sunday for the Craft & Hobby Association Scrapbook Trade Show. This is where store owners go shopping for products to bring into their store. I was hoping to catch in some sight seeing before the show begns in about 9 hours. But the weather had other ideas.

Monday is Education day for us retailers - we get to take classes sponosored by manufacutures to show us new product, how to use their products and how we can bring these new products, or techinques into our store. Here are a few samples of the clases I have taken. Make sure to kept checking back every night as I upload pictures of new products as the trade show begins!

Knot Your Ordinary Card Class

Lisa's Knot Your Ordinary Card Class was a big success. The cards turned out great and we are lucky to be getting her back to teach our Flower Punch Bunch class on Saturday, June 13th at 2 PM! Here are pics from last class and the

Punch Bunch Card Class on June 13th from 2pm - 4pm for $20.

Cricut, Expression & Design Studio

Last month we had our first class on the Cricut Design Studio. As promised our instructor, Susie, delivered a great class. Our big screen TV was hooked up to her laptop and everyone followed along with her on the TV, on their laptops or on the store's desktop computer. Her handouts were a worth the price and then some. I was unable to attend her class because I was helping customers in the store. HOWEVER, with just her screen prints and handouts I was welding in no time! I was not a cricut lover because of the time and uncertainity of cuts and size, etc. Now I can't get enough. I want to design all day long. I am SOOO looking forward to herAdvanced class - word book here I come. Especially with the deep cut blade (you don't need the entire housing - just the blades) and cutting chipboard is possible.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the class but it was a full house and lots of fun. We may have to create our own Cricut Swarm here!
Here is a picture of the projects you will make in the Cricut & Expression Basic Class. That class is Saturday, June 6th at 10 AM for $15.

Our other Cricut Classes are Design Studio Basic, Saturday, June 6th at 2 PM $20. Design Studio Advanced, Saturday, June 6th at 5:30 PM $20. * Take all three classes for $45. --Then stay and play with all the new techniques you learned!

Just like I promised we have arrived and experienced two days of new products and ideas that are fun and cute and I just can't wait to share. So Please bare with me as the pics from yesterday and today go up and please leave comments about anything you see. I will try to add more tomorrow but we may be busy placing orders........

This is the first "nice" day - we have had rain - still cool though.


OK. I am not usually a name dropper but when you get to see Heidi in action, take a picture with her AND get her autograph...... can't hep it!
I think you ladies can agree that this was a good chance as opposed to Paris Hilton - who yes was there - why you ask... but of course promoting her new craft and scrapbooking line!

She (Heidi) has a great new product called invisibles - keep an eye out because their invisible?


This by far is my favorite collection - this pictures are just a small sampling but I took a class using the boy collection and I am in love and have not kids!! Girls don't feel left out their girl collection is just as great - I will try to get pics of my projects and of the baby girl collection as well.... but wait their is more - this should be ready to ship in late February or early March.

Yet another release from my mylyb - they have several with release dates from February until June - s0 it keeps us on our toes and wanting more.....

Ok - so another big name, this guy -Tim Holtz - maybe you heard
about him, can't get a break
always a swarm around him!

Well Ladies, that is it for now but believe me I would be here all night if I tried to upload and talk about all the great stuff. So I will end for today because this time difference is still hard to get used to and I need to plan my attack for tomorrow and get some orders together. I hope you enjoyed the sneak peak and stay tuned and come in the store to see and hear about it all. I could not end without the cutest pic and layout ever - KITTENS!!

*don't forget to check out the website with the NEW February calendar and new store hours on Sunday (a test for Feb. only). So if you want us to keep them then stop by the store!!!
