Square 1 University Launches Today

If you have ever thought about having a crafty business, you might be interested in becoming a Creative Consultant with Square 1.  There are over 300 consultants so far who are developing their own businesses by creating projects using Square1 products and selling them at local craft fairs or online.  Square 1 is an alternative to vinyl - it is adhesive coated fabric that you use for the same types of projects you would do with vinyl but there is no PVC in the product. 

The consultant kit includes products worth over $60 and is priced at $49.99 with free shipping.  The kit also includes the "Learn and Earn" training program, membership in a private Facebook Community, great discounts and the Square1 Affiliate program. You can see the details HERE.
My favorite product is the inkjet printable fabric.  It is repositionable and allows you to create amazing custom projects - like the wall signs and books I made for my little neighbors.  The frame sticks to the wall and they can change the image above their name to a favorite Disney princess or their own photo.
Here is the printed sheet before I cut it with my Cameo machine.

New - Square 1 University

My friend, Cara Miller is the Education Director at Square 1.  Cara is an excellent teacher and she has created a series of six classes that will help you get the most out of your die-cutting machine when you use it with Square1 products.  There are two tracks - one for Cricut users and one for Silhouette users.  Cara has many years experience teaching die cut machine classes (Let's Learn Cricut, Whispers) and is great at breaking down the process and teaching you the steps to make sure you really understand all of the tips and tricks to get great results with your machine and the Square1 product.

Even if you don't have an interest in doing a crafty business, you might be interested in one or all of the classes if you want to learn more about your die cutting machine and working with the Square1 material. Here is some more information about Square 1 University.
