Martha to Feature Popular Martha Stewart Crafts™ Line and to Introduce New Cricut Cake® Martha Stewart Crafts™ Edition with Provo Craft
Debut Part of HSN’s Exciting Month-Long 33rd Birthday Celebration
(South Jordan, UT, St. Petersburg, FL, New York, NY – July 13, 2010) – Leading multi-channel retailer HSN and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia today announced the debut of Martha Stewart live at HSN on July 19. The business impresario and lifestyle icon will bring her expertise to HSN during a special series of shows showcasing Martha Stewart Crafts™ products.
During her appearance, Martha will also introduce the Cricut Cake® Martha Stewart Crafts™ Edition, an easy-to-use, cake decorating machine and electronic cutter that precisely cuts gum paste, frosting sheets, and much more. Developed by the creative innovators at Provo Craft, the new machine, which is co-branded with Cricut Cake and Martha Stewart Crafts brands and comes with unique Martha Stewart-designed cartridges, will launch exclusively on HSN.
Joining Martha on-air on HSN will be Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia crafting expert Alex Perruzzi, who will help demonstrate the many creative items being presented throughout the day. Key items from the Martha Stewart Crafts line include the Martha Stewart Crafts Punch and Stamp Kit, Large Circle Cutter, a 24-pk Iridescent Glitter Kit, the Scoreboard Kit, Essential Tool Kit, Essential Glitter Kit, and the Essential Punch Kit. Following Ms. Stewart’s debut in July, HSN will continue to offer customers valuable crafting tips and new innovations from her popular Martha Stewart Crafts line throughout the Fall.
The new Cricut Cake Martha Stewart Crafts Edition gives everyday decorators, as well as professionals, the ability to create edible masterpieces such as elegant wedding cakes, charming birthday cakes, and themed cookies or cupcakes for any occasion. The machine saves time cutting unique shapes, designs, and fonts from sheets of gum paste, fondant, cookie dough and other edible materials that would otherwise take hours with various individual cutters. Cricut cartridges with creative new designs from Martha and her team are available exclusively for purchase during the launch on HSN.
