    Marco. I will take you through the steps. The easiest way to do it is to make a hidden category. To do this you will need to go to Catalog > Manage Categories click on the default category and create a subcategory called new products. Do not enable it and do not Anchor it. Then when you create products you can just redirect them to that category. The category will be grayed out so it will look like you cant add things to it but you can. Make sure that you look at the New Products category ID and write it down. When you go to homepage on your CMS >Pages edit the code that was provided in the Hellothemes Instructions Manual.

    {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="ENTER YOUR NEW PRODUCTS CATEGORY ID NUMBER HERE" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

    Once you do so you should be able to do so on all products that you would like to be shown as new products just by checking that New Products box when you create a product.

    Hope this is helpful if theres anything that you need help on I will try to do so to the best of my knowledge.
