CHA Summer 08 - Day Three






Spotted: Ellison/Sizzix (yep, I am a little confused too...) have launched a *new* electronic feeder die cutter - called the Big Shot "Express". It is the basic Big Shot with a motor... so slightly heavier (but not like lugging a sack of potatoes around!) What is really exciting (and one blog watcher asked for these pics!!) is the Hello Kitty licence. Although it is for the US only at the mo (and Kristen is working on the UK and EU...) it is a girl wonderland of kitten cute. Does my 5 year old love Hello Kitty - well... hello?!! I have a Kitty lip gloss sat next to my toothbrush - and my little princess is all about pink, bows and cutesy. She will be up for all of this!!

When you see what Core'dinations cardstock does up close - like that shading on the US Flag?!! it is easy to see why card makers are going nuts for it. The 'Angel' pic is die cut vintage cardstock... and I am pretty certain this cardstock is going to give you a reason to get that dusty die cutter off the shelf, and back on the desk ;)


I did get tickled by big G at Quickutz for saying their tool was a nut cracker - so hands up, I had failed to mention it was a prototype, and the real one is going to be a sleek mean love machine (try and say "my love machine" to any non-scrapper with a straight face.... ;)


Anyways... here is a new perspective from someone I really like...

"Keep in mind the 'Love Machine' is $10 less than the Ellison/Sizzix offering and it is true it may be a little larger, I believe the expression you used was a "little heavy on the hands" but I would think consumers would appreciate a tool that offered a little more versatility, and a whole lot of LOVE! Oh and come October, there will be no "nuts cracking" just a whole lot of happy consumers using the one machine that does it all."
Sounds like we need a road test challenge!!! You all agree right?

Love the idea of a road test challenge. I have the original squeeze and love it, so would be interested to see what this machine is like and what it makes.
