April 2011 Upcoming Project

Just wanted to give you the latest plans for the April 5 Cricut Monthly Project class. There will a 2 page layout and my hope is everyone can leave with a finished project. I know, I know this is something new for me. We will be using the following cartridges: Everyday Paperdolls, Designer Calendar, and Storybook. As requested by previous students, I am repeating some of the cartridges used in prior classes. Most of the paper I am using for the 2 page layout is from K & Co Super Paper Pad, which has 360 sheets with a wide range of colors and patterns. I hope this is helpful in your future planning. I did have the layout available for viewing at the March 1 Cricut Project class. The project sample will be on display during the March 12 Open House at the store. Also, the Cricut classes will be 50% off the class fees on March 12 and April 9. Looking forward to seeing you in class or store. Stay well everyone.

Update: April 14, 2011

The project pictures are now up! I used my new Nikon S6000 and successfully transferred pics to my new laptop with Windows 7. Ok I have been behind times with my OS, and still haven't graduated to a Digital SLR, but I am moving in the right direction. There are 2 views of this layout, one background was made with the K & Co Super Pad and the polka dot was with open stock paper from the store. It was a fun class and I think everyone finished their layout cuts. Looking forward to seeing everyone in store or in class. Hope you are all enjoying this spring. The weather here is finally in the 50s.

March 2011 Cricut Project

Here are the cards from the March 1 Cricut Monthly Project workshop. Starting at the top of this post, there is a double fold bunny card, a wiper leprechan card, a slider monkey card, a pocket baby chick card, and finally an easel bee card. As always the class content is overfull which means some of the cards will need to be completed at home. So, for the April 5 monthly project class there will be a 2 page layout which I think everyone can finish during the 2.5 hr. class. I will have Gypsy instructions available for those who wish to their Gyspy for the project. Hope you are able to join us. Thank you to everyone who attended yesterday! I really enjoyed seeing your projects and hearing all your Cricut crafting adventures.

February 2011 Project

Shown above are the projects we made during the February 2011 Cricut Monthly Project class. The vinyl clings are those items on the vase. Class favorite was the gift tag and holder, which are the pictures at the top of this post, and definitely fun to make! For those who were unable to attend the makeup class I hope you are able to join on future sessions. I am providing Gypsy instructions for those interested in completing their projects using their Gypsy. Looking forward to seeing you in store or in class. Next project class is March 1.

February 2011 project update

Hi everyone. I have been delayed posting pictures due to some camera problems. I have a new camera on the way so hope to post the pictures very soon. The big snow storm on Feb 1 caused our class to be cancelled. A make up class was held on Feb 5 and then we had an unexpected snow storm. Go figure... Class was fun and everyone showed their projects from the January workshop - just too cute!!! Well, I will update soon with pictures once the camera is here. Stay warm everyone.
