Cricut DVD Surprise! And Enter to WIN! 50

Ok, so I have kept you all waiting and wondering what REALLY is going on, so now I’m going to officially TELL YOU if you haven’t already figured it out!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ *MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS WHOLE POST! OK?!*

Above Rubies Studio, as you may or may not know, hired a professional video crew to come in over the weekend, set up fancy sound, lighting and a real nice camera (made me feel all celebrity like or something! Just Kidding! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and we started filming what will be at least a 2 hour Cricut Educational/Instructional DVD.

This video will start post-production this week and we plan to have it to you just in time for Christmas so everyone that Santa is bringing a Cricut to will know JUST HOW TO USE IT!!ย  And those who have a Cricut will learn how to get MORE from it!

This video is going to cover very basics, through intermediate Cricuting, up to some advanced cuts, along with tons of tips and tricks along the way.ย  We also are going to include a Projects Gallery in this Video and this is where YOU COME IN! ๐Ÿ™‚


Contest runs from Novmber 8, 2009ย  until November 25, 2009.

Here is How to Enter!

  • Use your Cricut to Create Stunning and Amazing; Scrapbook Pages, Cards, Home Decor, or ANYTHING you can think of. (You can also use work that you’ve already created.)
  • Take High Resolution pictures of your creations
  • Send those pictures to –
  • Include your name and email address in the picture entry (so we know who sent what)
  • Also include a list of materials used and any special techniques or instructions to your project
  • You may enter as many times as you would like before the deadline (1 project = 1 entry)

What do I get if I win?

If your work is selected, you will be notified by e-mail along with a copy of a release form to be able to feature your work in our photo gallery on the DVD and other publications.ย  This will give you mass exposure and awesome crop bragging rights!

If your work is selected to be featured, you will also be entered for a chance to win several spectacular prizes to come, and a copy of the DVD.

So start creating and I can NOT WAIT to see ALL of your AWESOME entries!!!!

    So for anyone who has said, “I’m not talented enough” – I DO NOT want to hear it!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You are your own worst Critics and I would LOVE to see your work!!! It will enter you for a chance to win FANTASTIC Prizes that I am not yet revealing – even if your work doesn’ “make it” into the final DVD Cut. So you have NOTHING to loose! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    the DVD WILL be released on the 1st of December – that will give us time to tidy up the post production work AND get YOUR Work into the Project Gallery for hundreds of thousands of viewers to notice! ๐Ÿ™‚
    SO!!!!! I want to see you ALL excited and Submitting!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You won’t be sorry!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Megan Gravener

    Oh JUST In CASE you missed it – we also put up a PRE-ORDER button so that you can reserve your copy to be sure we don’t sell OUT before Christmas – We have a large order ready to go – but we want to make sure no one misses out – ESPECIALLY before Christmas!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Carmen Elrod

    I love this idea!!!!! I will be working on some projects or cards to submit!!!! How exciting! I love how you are always in such a happy mood~ it makes me happy too!!!!!

  • Nancy

    Congratulations on your newest big adventure! How exciting! I can’t take part in this one as I don’t have a Cricut! But how fun for all of those that do!!

  • Megan Gravener

    Aww! I’m sorry Nancy! We’ll be having PLENTY more prizes and fun to come though so don’t worry! What a great Christmas gift to ask for though huh? The Cricut (of your choice of course!) AND the how to use it A-Z DVD!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Best wishes!!

    • Megan Gravener

      I KNOW! It’s a TOTALLY crazy and IRONIC coincidence! BUT we actually are doing two totally different things! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure EVERYONE will want them BOTH! Robyn TOTALLY ROCKS and I am SO happy that we are both going to be able to provide this to THOUSANDS of Cricut users all over the World! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Just to clarify for those who were wondering the difference,
      Robyn’s DVD is really project focused just like all her Youtube videos are – TOTALLY awesome!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Her video is in pre-order right now at and will be shipping around the 30th of Novemeber. DVD is going to be hours of fun in learning the Cricut. Everything from turning it on to making advanced cuts. We’ll be making LOTS of projects within the DVD and there will TONS of completed projects with instructions so that you can complete them yourself at home. ๐Ÿ™‚ Totally AWESOME FUN!!! My video will be available on my site and several others for $16.97 and will be shipping the first week of December – You’ll have it in time for Christmas gifts! (For yourself or someone else!) ๐Ÿ™‚

      I knew Robyn would be doing a DVD someday and I think she was aware of my plans to do one – LITTLE did either of us know we’d be releasing at the SAME TIME! ๐Ÿ™‚ GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So Have FUN with BOTH this Holiday season!!! They are gifts that will last for a long time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sharon Gresh

    Oh that was funny…Love your laugh and the end results…well may I say you look terrific! Looking forward to see your video when it come out. God Bless you and yours.

  • Patty Wood

    I am working on vinyl transfer teeshirts with my Cricut for our grandkids for my father-in-laws 100th birthday which is coming very soon on November 18th. I will try to get a good picture of the grandkids in the shirts and send you a picture.
    Hopefully they will make a good project.

  • Joann M.

    Well I am crafting all this weekend hopefully something will be right to enter. Thank you. The little clip makes the video look very inviting!


  • Cynthia Guy

    hello! What a great little video. I’m eager to see the full length dvd even though I don’t own a cricut! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been enjoying seeing all the projects you’ve been making with it and you are so joyful while doing them and you give me so much inspiration!

  • Megan Gravener

    Even though you don’t own a Cricut this DVD is still FULL of fun ideas for projects! We will have a huge Inspirational Gallery in the DVD that is just going to be AWESOME!
    And everyone still has time to enter their projects! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sound Great, I Enjoy All Your Videos And I Really Need To Learn How To Use My Cricut, I Have One But It Just There. I Watch The Videos But When I Started To Use My Cricut I Go Brain Died

  • Carmen Lucero

    Hi Megan,

    I just pre-ordered your video!!! Yes! I use my cricut almost every day, but I don’t know all the buttons and secrets. Does my project have to be with a cartridge or can I use my SCAL?
