Did you get a chance to view the new infomercial by Provo Craft. I was able to see it this morning and it is called the Ultimate Creative Series. It is a set of ten (10) DVD's that feature the most popular things that can be done with the Cricut. The projects are absolutely amazing. They are all brand new, never seen before.
Each DVD is devoted to one subject. They are (in no particular order)
Fabric & Needle Art
Creative Card Making
Wood & Clay
The DVD set contains approximately 100 projects that you can do. The set also comes with a free DVD full of Tips & Tricks. Oh, did I mention that it also come with a free Cricut Personal Cutter. That's right for a limited time if you decide to purchase the set, you can get a free Cricut Baby Bug. The infomercial says you can get it home for a payment of $24.99 for Shipping & Handling (other payments will apply). There was only a phone number listed, no website was listed on the infomercial.
However, before you jump up to buy it, here is a break down of the cost. If you decide to purchase this offer you can break it up into four (4) payments. Here is how it will go:
1) $24.99 for S&H (DVD set)
2) $35.00 for S&H (Cricut machine)
3) $54.00 for (1st months payment)
4) $15.00 for (tax - % depending on your area)
5) $15.00 for (processing fee to use the monthly installment payments)
The total amount above will be what you would have to pay when you order.
6) $54.00 for (the next three months)
OR you can make 1 payment of approx. $294. You can decide to get just the DVD set if you already own any of the Cricut machines, but they are only going to deduct the $35. for the S&H. Your new total would $256 (cost may vary slightly depending on the tax charged in your area).
So you would receive the box set of 10 DVD's (all at once, not monthly), DVD with Tips & Tricks, Original Cricut Cutter, Ultimate Creative Series Sampler cartridge (all of the images used to make the projects are on the cartridge).
WOW!!!!!!! That is a lot of money. There are tons of new ideas but only you can decide if it is worth it. Hope this helps in your decision making.
