August 12, 2012 Monthly Cricut Project

No picture to publish yet, but the scrapbook page is well the way.  We will be using the Paisley Cachemire cartridge and perhaps one other.  As far as a craft goes, I will check with students this Sunday to gather some areas of interest.  Hope everyone is having a good summer.  Happy Cricuting, Susan
Update June 4, 2012
I'm going to repeat the project I had in September 2011 since the store no longer carries the Paisley cartridge and I was advised it has been retired too.  There was a suggestion to do glass etching as the craft for this session.  I will confirm with the July 8 Project session attendees and then update the blog accordingly.

For those of you with an Expression 2, I will work to create instructions which use the built in cartridges and then advise what additional cartridges may be needed.

Update on July 8, 2012

We are going to create the 3D sunflowers, embellish with seed beads, and add a vinyl applique to our sunflower vase as the second project for the August 12th class.  I will add a glass etching project in the September 9th class.  I really enjoyed our class today.  Hope everyone had fun creating their projects and learned some new techniques. 

August 12, 2012 Monthly Card Class

Posted above are the 2 card styles for August Monthly Card Class.  The owl is a surprise pull up birthday card and the raccoon is an easel birthday card.  I used Birthday Bash and Create a Critter Cricut cartridges to create the embellishments for these card styles.  Hope you are able to come to class since these are really fun card styles.

July 1 or 8, 2012 Monthly Card Class

In July we start the first monthly card class.  It will precede the Monthly Cricut Project class and can be moved or additional sessions added as needed.  The purpose of this class is to explore a variety of card styles, typically 2 styles each 2 hour session.  I will be using my Cricut to create the images to embellish these cards, but it is not necessary.  Students are welcome to use purchased images, (Jolees, stickers, etc) or other die cut embellishments - Spellbinders, Sizzix, etc to create your unique cards.  For the double fold graduation card I used Birthday Bash and Everyday Paperdolls.  For the z fold card with belly band I used Accent Essentials, Elegant Cakes, and Elegant Edges.  Hope everyone is having a good summer.  Looking forward to seeing you in class or in store.

July 8, 2012 Project Class

As promised I will be adding a craft along with a scrapbook page, starting this July.  Shown above are the July projects.  We are making a fabric applique for a beach bag and a 1 page beach layout and using our Cricut markers to highlight titles and images on the  scrapbook page.  Hope everyone is having a good week.   Update on June 27, 2012:  I see I failed to say we are using the cartridge " Life is a Beach", which has many awesome travel and summer time images.  Looking foward to seeing everyone on July 8.
