Why do you get the Cricut cartridges before they are released?
We have been working closely with Provo Craft for sometime and have an agreement that we will support the Hello Thursday release efforts by showcasing cuts and projects from the new Cartridges. Our readers find it very helpful to see completed projects before making decisions on cartridge purchases.
Do you work for Provo Craft?
We are not employed by Provo Craft.
How do I get free stuff to giveaway on my blog?
The old saying that nothing is free is very true. Our sponsors provide materials for us to showcase but it is a ton of work and a very large time commitment to continually provide new projects that highlight the specific collections. Also, not everything given away is given to us by a sponsor - we provide some giveaways ourselves.
I would love to get on the list of free products from various companies. How do I get on that list?
Well, in all honesty, there is no such list. Many companies will do test groups or focus groups. These companies pay attention to online communities and message boards as well. We do not know how these individuals are chosen.
How can I go to the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Convention?
There are two parts to CHA - the trade show for industry professionals and the Consumer Super Show that is open to the public. You can check out all the details by clicking HERE.
How do you pick which paper companies you want to show on the blog?
It's a very technical approach. We work with the best of the best! We want to show you products from the leaders in the paper crafting industry, as well as highlight some of the smaller companies that you may not have seen before. Quality, freshness, as well as the themes companies offer are also very important.
Can you put my blinkie on your blog?
Because Everyday Cricut is a sponsored blog, we reserve as much space as possible for our sponsors. We add blinkies of guest designers and contributors on occasion but for for the most part all the blinkies are for our sponsors or our personal blogs were you can get any more inspiration, tips, techniques, and most importantly exposure to some amazing product and companies!
Can I put your blinkie on my blog?
Yes you can! It's simple and we greatly appreciate the support.
How do I put your blinkie on my blog?
To add our blinkie to your blog--simply copy the html code provided on the right sidebar (under our blinkie) and paste it into your blog (blogger folks do this by adding a gadget). It's pretty simple and we greatly appreciate the support. It puts a smile on our face every time we see our blinkie living on one of your blogs!
How are your winners chosen?
To ensure that out giveaways are fair and everyone has the same opportunity to win, we use random number generator (random.org) to assist us in choosing the winners.
How are your guest designers chosen?
We are very fortunate to be part of such a talented group of paper crafters. In choosing our guest designers, our goal is to have individuals who offer unique perspectives and approaches to paper crafting. We also really love it when they happen to big Cricut fans.
Where do I find the winner's list?
