WOW!!! What a day!

I have so much to share with you that I don't even know where to begin! There's so much fun stuff coming out! Spellbinders has some fabulous new things coming to you very soon! First there's the new storage system. The binder that holds the dies is expandable and fits in the front side of the tote leaving the back side of the tote available for your machine. The tote and binder are both a faux suede in a dark raspberry color! Just beautiful and so classy!

They also have some great new dies headed our way. In addition to adding to the Nestabilities collection they are releasing some new shapes too. Here you can see the new frames. The Polka Dot frame is my personal favorite!

And, last but definately not least they have an amazing new item called Impressabilities. These are thin sheets of metal (thinner than the dies) that have intricate designs on them. They can be used to dry emboss in the machines like the regular dies, you can ink them and run them through the machine therefore transferring the image to your paper, you can airbrush them with your Copics or use your inks to stencil and lastly you could cut them apart and use them for actual embellishments! They are awesome!

We also spent some time with Quickutz today. In addition to the new release dies and embossing folders they have some new cutting media available. There's cork paper, magnet paper, metallic paper, vellum and chipboard that has double-sided adhesive on it! They come in multi-packs of 4x8 sheets and the number of sheets depends on the media type. Super cool! They've also released a new Silhouette SD. Not only does this machine have new software that allows you to weld fonts and shapes, the machine itself has an SD slot in it. This means you can save some of your images to the SD card and take your new Silhouette SD with you to a crop! Yep, it's now portable!

I'm sorry I wasn't able to post more throughout the day. I had actually planned to have all of this to you much, much sooner. But, unfortunately we've had some unexpected technical issues today and those issues are keeping me from sharing all the great videos I shot today as well. I'm truly sorry! As soon as I get hone we'll get all those videos uploaded for you. In the mean time, I can continue to share some photos. I'll be back tomorrow evening with a more goodies to share. I hope you're enjoying the reveals as much as I am! See you tomorrow and thanks so much for stoppin' by! We appreciate ya!

Thanks for the update Katie! The SB Storage stuff looks great - can you get a picture of the inside of the binder? I'm curious as to how they set it up and whether it would work for QK Cookie Cutter dies too.
