Create a Critter Sneak peak Design contest.

Hello, everyone!

Today I wanted to cue everyone in on a cool new contest hosted by Provo Craft!

Basically, they are revealing 5 keys from the NEW Create A Critter 2 cartridge.

Then you will log in to the Cricut Craft Room and get free access to these images.

Next create a project using the free images. Prizes will be awarded in the Scrapbooking, Home D├ęcor, Card Making, and Fabric categories.

Lastly, upload the project to the Cricut Project Center and include your instructions.

The grand prize is complete and total access to all of the cartridges in the cricut library via the Cricut Craft Room. PLUS both 9/6/12 Hello Thursday cartridges!

The prizes for each category are both 9/6/12 Hello Thursday cartridges!

How fantastic is this! To increase you changes to win you can enter as many times as you like!

I will not enter the contest because I can not make the Craft Room program load up on my computer and work. Apparently, my computer is more technilogically advanced than the craft room.

Love the cart! Hopefully I will find time to enter the contest.

Sounds like a great contest and I was excited to hear about the new CAC until I looked at the previews and saw mostly the exact same images that are on the first CAC (just with different accessories) or on other carts...am I missing something?

Thanks for the 411 on the contest. I noticed it under "my cartridges" yesterday. I really want to create something but today the images are not under "my cartridges" just the Obama and Romney free images. Does anyone else have this problem???

Unfortunately, I won't be able to participate. I have a HUGE report that I'm working on for work, and I'm ging to have to spend most of my time over the next few weeks getting it done. So ... I just went ahead and preordered the new CAC2. The images look adorable!! I'll definitely have to reward myself with lots of playtime once this report is finished!!

Cropalcoholic!! said...

Thankfully I was able to cut some images using the CAC2 & CCR before the images were removed!!

Thanks for the chance to win the cartridge.
