Cricut Circle Member


I now belong to the Cricut Circle Club.   WhoooHoooo!   I never thought in a gazillion years that I would become a member because it was very costly when it first began.  But now Provocraft made it that you can use your Cricut Reward points (3000) to become a member.   If you’re unfamiliar w/ how the club works:-

This yearly membership includes:
  • Cartridge of your choice offered for membership
  • 10% off of all purchases made on Cricut.com
  • Free shipping on orders over $50 made on Cricut.com
  • Exclusive promotions on Cricut.com
  • Double reward points for purchases on Cricut.com
In anticipation of becoming a member, I made my very own Cricut Circle emblem/thingie.

How this all started was I was soooo excited about becoming a Circle Member that I literally drove my hubby nuts by me chanting:-  “I’m a Circle Member.  I’m a Circle Member”.  He retorted w/:-  "I’m going to call you 'Loopy' from now on."   J
Hence, me getting a “Circle/Loop” to make into an Circle emblem/thingie.

I started w/ an unfinished plant stake that had a chalkboard in the circle part.  I painted it Cricut green.  Actually the real color is "Apple Orchard" from Plaid.  I looked up the color on the Net to get the RGB codes for it.  Then I utilized my Cricut Imagine for the RGB codes and flood-filled the Cricut circle rim w/ the color.  It was a bang-on match!!!  I cut the shape out numerous times to make it sturdier and even flipped the image so the back of the circle-rimmed shape was green, too.  Very pleased how it all turned out.  J



Attached a blinged-up crown on her head, added gems around the face perimeter, and a bow for the final touch.  The gems mimic the colored polka dots in the bow.  Wrote “Circle Member” w/ chalk on the board.  




Here she is in all of her glory:-


I think she’s looks pretty divine, eh?   Now, I don’t have to keep chanting that I’m a Circle Member.  I can just look at my Circle Club emblem/thingie and I know that I am.  LOL

  4. I just joined with my points, also. I'm waiting on my shipment. My question is.....I like the next cart that comes with a membership. Can I purchase it and not pay $79.00 for it?? How does the membership work?

    1. If you're referring to the "Charmed" cartridge, this one is only for those members who are renewing on Aug. 1st.

      If you'd like to e-mail me, I can tell you more about the Circle Club. :-)
