December 2, 2012 Monthly Card Class

We will be doing a Owl Tri Fold Shutter card and an Angel embossed card.  The tri - fold shutter gives you many opportunities to decorate and embellish with stamps, die cuts, and messages.  I had fun with the Create a Critter 2 cart for the cuts on this card.  On the Angel embossed card, there is a stamped message as well as one of the awesome cuts from A Quilted Christmas.  Both of these carts are wonderful and hope you have as much fun as I do creating with them.

December 2, 2012 Monthly Cricut Project

We will be using another new cartridge, A Quilted Christmas, to create this 2 page layout.  This is an awesome cartridge, with a variety of holiday images, including Dickens style characters, cards with silhouette features, etc.  We will also do some creative changes to images on the Winter Frolic cartridge and some dry embossing.  Finally, we will create a vinyl applique to use as a wine glass decoration as the craft project.  I will post the wine glass project during the next week. Hope everyone is having a great fall!

November 4, 2012 Monthly Card Class

This will be a really fun class.  As requested by a student, we will do some stamping, embossing, and coloring with Pro Markers or other coloring inks/markers. Also we will add glitter using the xyron technique.  Finally we will make our own "wobble" to add some movement to the create a critter 2 card.   Hope you are able to join me in this class!

November 4, 2012 Monthly Cricut Project

We will be using one of the new cricut cartridges, Create a Critter 2, to create the 1 page layout.  This is a very cute cartridge with lots of wonderful phrases, appropriate for all holidays, and holiday details/outfits for all critters.   By the way, even if you do not like whimsy, create a critter 2 is wonderful for all the holiday embellishments.  Our craft will be a holiday magnet decorated with vinyl.  The store has a nice selection of vinyl colors next to the open stock paper - definitely worth checking out.  I will post a picture of the magnet, later this week.

October 7, 2012 Monthly Card Class

It is late on the posting but I am planning to create a buckle card and a wiper card.  Both will have a Halloween theme.  On the wiper card I will be embellishing with stick pins, which are really fun to make.  Fingers crossed I will have the pictures up soon.  Need to retake pictures in the daytime so I will try to post in the morning.  Have a great evening everyone! Ok pictures are now up.  I wish I could get a better pic of the wiper card but after several tries I am sticking with what I have just posted. 

October 7, 2012 Monthly Cricut Project

Hi everyone.  I am repeating a 2 page layout which I did in 2010 for the October 7, 2012 monthly project class.  We are using Happy Haunting and Paper Doll Dress Up.  These cartridges are really awesome and offer a wonderful variety of images plus the fonts on Happy Haunting are outstanding.  Fall is around the corner and what a great time to start back scrapbooking all our vacation pictures and our creating all our holiday cards and decorations. Happy cricuting everyone!
