ANNOUNCEMENT - Change is GOOD and a FREEBIE

SPECIAL ADMIN ANNOUNCEMENT - We have really enjoyed providing the Cricut FANatics Blog to all of you the past few months.  And we sincerely appreciate all the support of our Cricut Guest Designers who inspire us each and every day !

Some of you voiced your concerns about why the admins have been so quiet about the blog lately, we have all had some personal issues that re-directed our attention the past couple of months but we want to assure you we plan on continuing the CRICUT FANATICS BLOG !

We have been evaluating how to improve and continue the blog based on feedback from you and our own observations so we are making the following changes effective IMMEDIATELY:
 
  • SUBSCRIPTION CHANGEPlease re-sign up to follow this blog using the new SUBSCRIBE box on the right.  This change will allow us to provide you:
    •  a WEEKLY BLOG BROADCAST sent on Saturday mornings with snip its from the past week so you can easily catch up (this will replace the daily feed now being sent)
    • a COMMUNICATION PATH for Admins to remind you of the Monthly Challenges and any special announcements we have about the blog...don't worry, we won't flood your email box with messages...these will be sporadic. Its so hard for everyone to see these when we post on the message board so we hope this helps
            NOTE: You have until February 28th to re-sign up before we delete our
           current feed.  It's better to do it now while you are thinking about it :)

  • FEATURE CHANGES -
    • We are no longer able to offer a Special Guest Designer Monthly...unfortunately it has just proven to be too hard to find and receive the projects from these celebrities every month.  However, we will still provide occassional special guest to spice things up
    • We will continue to offer the two Monthly Challenges - Cricut Images and Sketch. However, we NEED to see more participation to continue these...our admins spend a lot of time planning these for you based on feedback that you still enjoy the challenges. Our hope is by reminding you through the blog broadcast message will help see an increase in participation. 
    • We are ADDING A NEW FEATURE based on your suggestions...TECHNIQUE TUTORIAL DAY...on the first of every month this feature will be focused on showing you tips on how to make your Cricut die cut images even more special !
    •  We are asking our Cricut FANatic Designers to continue creating amazing projects to share, however, we know you want to see more Layouts, 3D Projects, Mini Albums and even more masculine card projects plus more. Keep sending us ideas, we want to hear them !
As a SPECIAL THANK YOU for taking the time to re-subscribe, we are offering YOU a PDF List of INSPIRING WAYS TO ENHANCE DIE CUTS for you to use as an inspiration starting point when you create with your Cricut. You will get this in your confirmation email when you subscribe.  It list THIRTY great ideas for you to consider ! NOTE: check your spam folder if you don't see your confirmation right away...add Cricutfanatics.blogspot.com to your "safe sender" list.

Change is GOOD...it helps us keep the Cricut FANatics Blog one of the best resources for Cricut project inspiration.  And please don't forget to show our Cricut FANatic Designers some love by leaving them a comment on their post...it inspires them to continue creating awesome projects for you to enjoy !

  4. I'm so happy to have this blog to visit. Life has been hectic the past several weeks and I've not stopped in to comment as much as I would have liked, but would miss you terribly if you decided to shut down, so, yes, change is good!
