As promised, CraftDirect is offering a free giveaway of the new Cricut Explore machine. You can enter to participate in the drawing starting now, up until March 13th*, 2014.
Are you as excited as we are about this fancy new machine? It’s the best of both world, with options for customized designs or the use of traditional Cricut cartridges to which you have grown accustomed. One lucky CraftDirect customer will be chose for our free giveaway. Will it be you?
How to Enter
There are 3 ways to enter for the drawing:
- Follow our CraftDirect Google+ page to get your name entered 1 time (any of our customers who are already following us will have their name automatically entered).
- Join our Google+ community called Paper Crafting Fanatics to get your name entered 1 time.
- Share a link on Google+ to our Cricut Explore page to get your name entered 2 times. Please see the instructions below on how to properly share the link.
Also, feel free to follow me on Google+, I’ll follow you back. You can reach my page by clicking the link at the bottom of this article.
In order for us to track the link shares you must follow these specific steps:
- From your Google+ profile page, find the module that looks like this:
- When you select the “Link” feature, the module should look like this (with your mug, not mine):
- In the field where it says “Attach”, add the URL http://www.craftdirect.com/cricut/machines/explore.html which should make your module look something like this:
- In the dialog bubble, please share your personal thoughts about the Explore. The most crucial part is that you include the hashtag #CraftDirectCricutExplore. Without the hashtag, we won’t know you shared a link.
- Click “Share” in the bottom left corner, and you’re all set!
Please contact us via e-mail or leave a comment below if any of this doesn’t make sense. You may not be active on Google+ or have an account. You may not even realize you have an account, but if you have gmail, then you probably do have a Google+ account that has not been activated. Signing up is easy, and it’s a great social media tool for businesses like CraftDirect to interact with customers. We are especially excited about the community we created, Paper Crafting Fanatics. This is a great platform for you to share your projects and ideas with other paper crafters.
