Provocraft has teamed up with HP printers to bring out a new print & cut cricut! It is launching in september over in america so im assuming us aussies wont get it for awhile ...just look how long it took to get us the Pink expression! I was waiting ages for that to come here.
It takes the same cricut carts and same blades so its all interchangeable with your other cricuts..the gypsy works with it too....if your lucky enough to have still thinking the aus price for a gypsy is too much.
It takes an ink cartridge that loads in the back of the machine & comes in the standard ink red green blue spectrum to make all the colours printers do & obviously a black ink cartridge too.
Provocraft are also launching the 12 new design carts that have all the patterns & colours to print onto the cricut cart designs. Its the same cutting size as the expression but the machine is much bulkier like the HP printer i have sitting on my desk, it has a coloured large lcd screen that is very similar to how the gypsy works.
Although its exciting a new product is being made i am still quite so happy with my pink expression for now.....if it prints colours like my HP printer does the colours just dont pop for me so i think using all my pattern papers will do for me!

what do others think?? are you going to be lining up to buy it or put it on the i might get that one day list?

Still loving my new pink cricut!

Over the weekend i was given a bookcase from a friend.....its just what i needed & fits in well with my bedroom.
I organised all my books & scrapbooking magazines into it so it left a space on my desk for my PINK cricut!! YAY it now has a home.....I also pulled out all the cartridges i had in the draw to keep next to it so i know what i have when im browsing at all the online stores!! shhh!!! so i don't accidentally buy 2 of the same! 
I did do a little online shopping again since my last post of kaisercraft stamps ect & that was to buy a BIG BITE cropadile!! It was at such a great price & came with 3 packets of eyelets/gromlets!! I was looking for a cricut for my friend when i spotted it so after a few days of thinking should i? shouldnt i? i did! Im now just awaiting its arrival! 

As Ive been trying to get my pages done of our amazing holiday to cairns Ive been cutting out some palm trees & turtles & heaps of cute things on the cricut to add to my pages

My darling first son today bought a dj hero game with turntable with the money he earned on the weekend...the store apparently had them on sale over the weekend but didnt remove the special sale price for the day so we ended up getting it for $48 instead of the $149 it rrp at! He was overjoyed!! Im not too sure if my ears are but hey at least the incessant drumming has stopped!! 

Im getting excited about my first ever scrapbooking bus tour im going on!! Unfortunately it is on election day so i hope to get that done with before the fun of the day begins!! I have only been to one of the stores on the list so it should be exciting to see what each store has to offer & to meet some scrapbooking ladies ( although meeting new people is a little daunting for me!) 

Its been raining again & looks like it will all so looking forward to spring!!

ive been busy!

Yesterday afternoon i tried out my new kaisercraft stamps....i used one for a mini tag on a present for a friend who just moved into a new house & was having a scrapbooking night. I also made some cute little water bottle pockets for a little something sweet while we scrapped...i got this from someones blog or from the scal forum ages who ever it was thanks! they turned out excellent & plan on making more if i go to another crop night!
Arent they so sweet! of course the freddo frog is always a bonus for anyone sitting down doing scrapbooking for a few just slip it over a water bottle..i didnt have one to demonstrate in the photo but you can see where it goes!

And this is a photo of my new 4 stamps from kaisercrafts new july range!
Grunge, grid script & music
they are called mini but they are so not mini in my book! they are quite generous in size! 

Also here is a sneek peek of the envelope album we are making for the eb card making group....this one is for a is nowhere near complete but i have started so all is going well!
hope the person im doing this for doesnt mind the sneek peek! Ive never made an envelope album before so i do hope ive done it correctly!

well its a stormy night tonight so im about to go get dinner ready incase the power goes out .....hope everyone stays safe & dry on this cold winters night!

So its finally raining & to be honest i was kind of liking not having the rain this winter.....the cold mornings was bad enough but to add water is just going to suck!

Kids are in the lounge room playing lego harry potter on the to love new keeps them busy for ages. They went fishing last night with their dad & Master J caught his first ever shark! it was only a baby so it wasnt too difficult & after a quick pose for the camera it went back to find its mummy somewhere in the ocean!
While there my darling husband dropped his mobile off the jetty & into the cold freezing water so now its sitting  down there with all the fishies...BUGGER!! there goes all those photos & contact numbers!
Luckily this morning he was able to go buy a new phone & got his number transferred so all was not too lost...i dont want to memorize another mobile number..i dont even know my own! lol

I sold my cricut also! so now all is good & bank balance is looking healthy again! i do miss my baby cricut though & its only been gone a short while! lol

I have a heap of scrapbooking challenges i wanted to get done so i really should get to it hey?

hope everyone is enjoying the holidays & cold wet weather ...bring on summer!!

July holidays & im so cold!!

Its been so cold lately that its hard to get out of bed in the morning..luckily the kids are on school holidays & we can stay in bed just that little bit longer...well i do...the kids seem to be immune to the cold & get up regardless of how cold it is & how warm they still could be if in bed!

We have taken them to a few places already such as castledare miniature railway and a huge walk around kings park in Perth. 

Ive been saving lots of svgs & got to love the svgcuts website! you can check out their promo video....they have some great stuff to buy not to mention the FABULOUS freebies!!

im loving my new PINK cricut!!

A few weeks ago i bought a new PINK Cricut expression machine with 3 new carts...i really love the plantin school book & pink journey carts. Im yet to use it with sure cuts a lot as i still have my baby bug..which im hoping to sell but if not i may just have to keep it! lol
This is my little man playing with the box the day i got it...he was able to climb right inside & shut it up! then became an plane and at present he now has a mountain of toys in it..even though we have so many toy boxes it isnt funny!! We both got new toys that day....he loves that box!

Ive made paper dolls for the kids to dress up on the fridge ( i put magnets on the back & popped them through the laminator to keep them clean!)

i love the bigger machine as im able to make the boxes ect but can see how practical the little bug can be especially with size & portability!  im thinking i wont be taking my big one out all that often!

Anyone that lives in western australia & wants to buy a baby cricut ( cricut original) let me know!!

                                                                               Im selling it with George & basic shapes cart
It also has 3 new mats plus about 4 used but still useable mats! It has an aussie plug as it was bought from a local scrapbooking store & has its manual book ect

im hoping everyone is looking forward to the school holidays!! im looking forward to not washing school uniforms!!
