Please note the date of the class may change due to some exciting news from my youngest daughter. We will use the Frozen cartridge. This will be the first layout in a series of Frozen layouts, beginning in March 2016. Happy crafting everyone.

Shown above is a double page layout which includes A Bug's Life and Wall E. This will be the last layout using Best of Pixar cartridge. I have to say it is an excellent cartridge with a number of amazing images. If you do not own this cartridge I strongly recommend it. You will not be disappointed. Next cartridge to explore -- Frozen. Stay tuned for more updates.

First layout in the Incredibles series. Still using the Best of Pixar cartridge for the images. These images are super and not too difficult to assemble. Looking forward to seeing everyone in class. Stay warm everyone/

Here is the monthly project for August. This date is tentative and I will confirm in the June 14 2015 class. Given the store calendar, vacation plans and other scheduling issues we agreed to resume classes in August. This may be the last Pooh and Friends layout and then off to Best of Pixar. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer.
Here is the double page layout for June. Given the store calendar, vacation schedules and other considerations this will be the only class for June. No class in July based on the same considerations. Hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful summer weather.

Confirmed date for the next double page layout. This will be a Tigger layout. I just have to say this Pooh and Friends cartridge has been so much fun. All cuts have come out very nicely and there are not many layers to make some fantastic images. Love it. By the way, there is a new Gypsy update so if you haven't done it in a long time (like me) go for it. The update didn't take a long time and everything went well. Update -- I just tried to use my gypsy at May 17 2015 class and it would not connect to the E2 machine. I will continue to update this post based on some further testing. Stay tuned and fingers crossed!!! OK just a quick update on the Gypsy. It works fine with both my Expression and Expression 2. The issue was with the connection port on my E2 and nothing to do with the Gypsy. I corrected the connection port issue (all by myself!) and it read everything just fine. I am giving a Gypsy class tomorrow (6/16/2015) at the store -- per special request.

Confirmed date for the next Pooh and Friends layout. The double page layout is shown above. I think we may have 2 more Pooh and Friends layouts. I plan to do a Tigger double page layout for May 31, 2015 -- tentative class date. It seems like Spring has finally arrived so happy!!! Hope everyone is having a super day.

We will be continuing Pooh and Friends layouts for at least 2 more sessions. This date has been confirmed with the students. We had a great turnout at the April 19 class - 5 students. Awesome and so fun!! Tentative dates for the balance of May - May 17 and May 31. I will create blog posts once confirmed with the students. Have a super week.
This date is tentative. I will confirm during class tomorrow, since this is Palm Sunday. The store is closed on April 5, 2015 - Easter Sunday and there are other events planned for April 12 and April 26 so the next available Sunday is April 19. This class will move to that date if desired by the group. As you can see we are continuing the Pooh and Friends cartridge and gathering some of the mat accents from Elegant Edges. All patterned papers are from Lawn Fawn Beachside Pint Sized collection - 2015. Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the spring weather. I am certainly ready for the warmer temperatures. See you in class or out crafty shopping in the stores.

Just beginning a series of layouts using Pooh and Friends cartridge and some accents with Elegant Edges. Lots of super cute images and not difficult to assemble.
Final layout in the Toy Story cartridge series. Lots of fun creating these layouts the cuts on the cartridge are absolutely amazing. Most of the cuts on this layout were done with the Expression 2 and the Gypsy. However I will be making more with the Cricut Explore as we move forward. Looking forward to the IPAD app for Design Space which is planned for release on February 17, 2015. Hope everyone is having an amazing week.

Expect this to be the final layout using Toy Story cartridge. I will try to incorporate many of the characters that I hadn't used up to this point. There are some cute characters which I haven't used yet -- Bo Peep, another version of Mr. Potato Head, Lotso and Jessie and Buzz in running pose. If the group is up for it I may want to create one more layout with Toy Story. I will know better after the February 3 class -- if it even happens since we had a big snow storm on Super Bowl Sunday (February 1) and everyone is digging out today (February 2). Stay tuned for more details.

We are continuing with Toy Story. There will probably be a couple more layouts using this cartridge and then on to Cars or Pooh and Friends cartridge. Do you have a preference. I have been delayed in posting and creating new layouts. Sometimes I just sign up for too many events. I am rethinking these decisions and hope to be more up to date with layouts. Thank you all for hanging out with me, being part of the classes or just enjoying the layouts. Hope you are having a super day. I will work to get the layout posted soon.
