 This week we have a very special guest & sponsor with us here in The Cafe.

Meet Tanner Bell



"Tanner here! I'm so happy to be sponsoring 
The Play Date Cafe Challenge..
I'll bet you never expected a 13 year old guy to be your sponsor this week!  Here's a little about me...I started crafting with the Cricut in 2010, when I was in 5th Grade.
I ordered it from HSN after seeing cards that my friend's grandma made! It seemed like it took FOREVER to arrive. I wanted to know all there was to know about it, so I Googled 'Cricut' and watched YouTube videos and thought 'I can do that!'
So I started doing my own videos in March 2010! I am thrilled to say that to date, I have 601 Subscribers and 60,000+ Channel views.
I've worked SUPER hard! January 1st, 2011 was a Life changing day! Emma from My Creative Time asked ME to be on her FIRST Design TEAM! WOW. So, I had to design a Blog... I used a Blogger template. Once I got my feet wet,  I asked Veronica from Vk Design Co to make it look AWESOME!  
In late December 2010, I contacted Kathy from Peachy Keen Stamps to ask if she could make some dog stamps for me.  Little did I know, she would be working with me to this day as my manufacturer.   
I featured a segment on my blog while called "Wake up with Tanner". I did it five days a week, at 5am, EACH day before school :) I put TONS of effort into everything I do! Before I could do a 'real' stamp release, I knew I needed a team and I brought on some of my favorite people to help me and and Mr. Cricut Crazy was born! We do a new release EVERY month and it's all going great!
I'm grateful for all the help that has come my way because quite honestly, my mom doesn't stamp...she doesn't craft...but she sure does love me!
Come visit my blog Mr. Cricut Crazy...I'd love to meet you!" 




Tanner did one of his famous YouTube videos to go along
with his project, so check it out HERE !!
