Early Valentine Gifts

I am always looking for ways to simplify my life when it comes to card making, scrapbooking, tag making, etc...I recently purchased Zutter's Bind it All and the Dreamkuts. I have purchased various paper cutters ranging in prices and was never ever to get an exact cut when having to do multiples of something. After seeing a tutorial on the Dreamkuts I thought I will give it a try and hopefully I will like these tools. I have not receive them yet, but they will be here no later than Wednesday. The Dreamkuts and The BInd it All go so well together and did I mention they are both pink (you could find them in baby blue as well)? The Bind it All is a great tool to make albums, notebooks, journals, etc...It wont take too much space and it is portable and seems easy to use. I will let you know once I start using it. Initially, I was going to get We R Memory Keeper's, The Cinch but I noticed a lot of people were having issues binding with the Cinch. The Cinch has some great features but what good is that if the bind is not going to be nice and smooth. I never personally tried the Cinch but I did see most, if not all, video tutorials about this machine in Youtube. I noticed that a lot of people were having the same type of issues with the binding so I opted out. If you have used The Cinch and have master the binding let us know.

CHA is taking place in Los Angeles as I type this short post and finally Cricut has revealed their  newest secret, The Cricut Expression 2. The difference between the Cricut Expression and its newest counterpart is that the Expression 2 takes both the Imagine cartridge and regular cartridges (as well as both mats). However, the Expression 2 does not print like the just cuts images. It also has a colorful LCD screen which will allow you to view all the possible layers of your cartridges without the use of an overlay. Luckily, Provo Craft does not plan to get rid of overlays at least for the next 3-4 years. The new Cricut Expression 2 comes with WIFI and it is compartible with the Gypsy. As of now I have not seen a great video where it shows the actual layers on the LCD screen but I am sure these will soon be availble. I am looking forward to learning more ;.)
