I Joined the Cricut Circle

I am so excited! I just can't Hide it! I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!

I have been wanting to join the circle for a month now and they finally opened it up today when a new quarter starts. I joined for a full year! I used the money I make from my blog ads and youtube video ads to pay for it. Thanks to everyone who hits those ads.

Here are some benefits Listed by Scrapalette from the Cricut Message Board.

One thing not listed is VIP pass at JoAnns for 10% off every purchase.

Cricut Circle Members receive an exclusive cart each quarter as part of their membership. PC does not plan to ever sell these carts, however members may sell theirs if they want. And after each quarter, if there are extra exclusive carts, PC adds them to the rewards program only for Circle members. Currently, anyone who joins the Circle will receive French Manor in their Welcome Kit.

Circle Members also receive a 10% discount on {off regular and sale prices} and yearly members receive free shipping on orders over $25.

There is an online monthly Circle Magazine with a great design team and the pages are full of projects and instructions. There is also a monthly contest for Circle members and prizes range from credit at (this month the prize is $150 credit) to machines and such.

There is a Cricle Blog with another great design team and daily posts {except Sunday} with great projects and instructions. There are weekly and monthly challenges with prizes.

There are Circle forums for members only. That's where most of the chatter about the Circle is.

There are exclusive rewards for Circle members. Different carts, machines, etc.

There have been some Circle only promos and other contests. Like additional reward points for purchasing certain products or a free cart with a machine purchase. And contests like the card contest and the winners and their guests won trips to Creative Escape or the infomercial contest where winners had their projects featured in the infomercial for the Ultimate Creative Series.

PC has hosted Meet Ups/Crops across the country so Circle members can meet each other (bringing the online community into real life) and the PC team. There are prizes, contests and swaps at those events. Some have featured guests like Jinger Adams and Teresa Collins as well as members of the design teams.
