And the Cricut Circle is…

Provo Craft has put up another splash screen promoting their new Cricut product called Cricut Circle, and it leaves little question that the Circle is not a machine…

It appears that the Circle is going to be some kind of membership club with benefits including exclusive cartridges available to members. And with “Charter member invitations coming in June,” Cricut fans won’t have to wait until CHA Summer to find out what it is all about.

CKC-Nashville Canceled, New CKC Locations Added

Creating Keepsakes has announced that CKC-Nashville, which was to take place Aug. 27th-28th at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, has been cancelled for 2010:

As you may be aware the location for CKC-Nashville, the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, has suffered severe damage from recent flooding. In working with our contacts at the Gaylord Opryland, it was determined that the facility would not be ready for CKC-Nashville and so we regret that we are cancelling the 2010 CKC-Nashville.

Since no alternative location was able to be secured in Nashville, in lieu of the cancelled Nashville event Creating Keepsakes has announced that it is adding two new locations to the CKC schedule for 2010:

Paula Kraemer, Creative Crafts Group VP of Events, told Scrapbook Update about the changes:

I was heartsick about the devastation to the Gaylord Hotel and the adjoining Opry building.  We have been going to Nashville since 2003 and I have many friends that experienced major flooding.

Kraemer and her staff are working with the affected vendors to transfer deposits to other events or refund them if necessary.

Registration had not yet opened for the canceled Nashville event. Registration for the new events in Cincinnati and Virginia Beach will open Wednesday, June 2nd.
