Think of people who admire your creations. Maybe friends that claim they could never do that, or insist they’re not creative, or simply don’t have the timeThat’s why we made Cricut Joy – so everyone can realize it only takes a little time, a little machine, and a little idea to make a big impact … every single day.   

Cricut Joy is a little machine out to make a big difference. Here’s how you can get in on the action: 

  1. Nominate a friend. Include a little reason why your friend would love Cricut Joy. *When nominating you agree not to share any personal details about your friend without first receiving their consent. 
  2. Post your nomination in a public social post on Instagram or Facebook. Tag your friend, @officialcricut, and include #cricutjoy.

In case you need a little inspo, here are a few example posts –   

@dadcanmakeit would do amazing things with #CricutJoy. He is always helping his kids make the coolest school projects, and he spends time visiting their classroomsThis would help him be even more creative on-the-go. @OfficialCricut, pick Randy! 

@OfficialCricut, please choose @AbbyPancoast to receive a #CricutJoy. She is a busy mom, full-time student, and works two jobs. I know she has a creative side but is always pressed for time. With Cricut Joy, she'd be able to add a little creativity to her life!
