May Cricut Workshop



I'm sorry it has been a while since I've posted anything. Unfortunately I never got the April Cricut cards posted. Oh well, I have some fun cards for the May Cricut classes.

Here we have a card from the Creative Holiday cards cartridge. The picture is a little dark, we haven't had many sunny days lately. I love the pink papers I used this month. The little white dots are perler beads that I melted in the oven. It was a fun little project and I need to melt some more soon as I have used quite a few on these cards!


Our next project isn't a card, but it's a cute tea cup from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge. The flowers and leaves are from the Flower Shoppe cartridge. As you can see, there are more of the little melted perler bead dots, this time in pink stripes. This tea cup would be a cute treat holder or filled with paper flowers.



Our next card is a Thank You Card from Beyond Birthdays. I liked the way the word Thanks looked and found some flowers on the same cartridge that worked well with it. Notice the melted bead flower centers? Yes I am obsessed with them. They are just so fun!



One of my students asked for a card she could use as a wedding shower invitation. I've seen lots of cards with silhouettes on them lately so I thought I'd give it a try. The bride is from the Wrap It Up cartridge. The sentiment would be easy to change for a shower card. The flag is from the Artbooking cartridge I think, I did the writing and cut it out with my Explore. 



The last card is from the Creative Cards cartridge. Again it is a little dark due to the weather. I love gray and pink together, and yes those are more melted beads.



Class is on Friday, May 22 - 10:30 am - 12:30 pm.

See you there!

March Cricut Class

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I know I'm waaay behind. I should have had these cards posted a couple of weeks ago. I've been dealing with a monster cold that doesn't want to go away. Hopefully the coughing and nose blowing will end soon!

Anyway here are the cards for the March classes. This month I'm using the Hello Sunshine line from Doodlebug. I'm also using their coordinating card stock. I love the fun, cheery spring look of these papers.

This sweet card is from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I love cheery, simple cards. 




This pretty flower is from the Disney Classics cartridge. The half circles and white shape are from the Phrases cartridge. The fun swirls are from the Home Decor cartridge.



Next up is a pretty doily and flower from the Artiste cartridge. This is one of my favorite cartridges to use. There are lots of great images to choose from.



I thought we needed a couple of Easter cards, so here is the first one. The lamb and zig zag circle are from the Easter cartridge. The brown circle is from the Accent Essentials cartridge. The font is from the Don Juan cartridge.


Our final card is a tri-fold card. The base card was designed by Lorrie Nunemaker from the Cricut Design Space FaceBook group. I took her basic design and made an Easter Card. The Egg is from the Easter cartridge. The word "Easter" is from Designers Calendar cartridge, the flower is from the Mickey & Friends cartridge. I'm not sure which font I used for the word Happy.



The next class is Friday, March 27 at 10:30 am.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy St. Patrick' Day


Hi All - 

I know it has been awhile since I've posted here. I wanted to let you know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! We spent most of February in Florida and had a great time. I did come home with a monster of a cold, but I am finally feeling better and am ready to play with paper (and string).

I made this St. Patrick's Day wreath and thought I would share it with you. I love my Cricut Explore! It makes projects like this so easy. All of the images are in Design Space. The base of the wreath is a wooden embroidery hoop.  




For those of you who are signed up for my classes this month, I'm working on class samples today and hope to have them posted by the end of the week.

Thanks for stopping by!

January Cricut Class

Hi,

Welcome to the January Cricut Workshop at Craft Fancy! This month we will be making Valentine cards.

Our first card is a bowl of bleeding heart flowers. These flowers are from the Walk in My Garden cartridge. The bowl is from Pretty Pennants and Art Philosophy.



Our next card is from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I love the hearts and bow that look like a bouquet of flowers.



The Love card is from the Create a Critter cartridge. I know there aren't any critters on the card, but the hearts are part of that cartridge.




This cute koala bear is from Create a Critter 2. It kind of reminds me of the Valentine's we gave out as kids in elementary school.



Our last card is from the Cindy Lou cartridge. I thought this heart flower was perfect for a Valentine.


Class date is: Friday, January 23 at 10:30 am. Call Craft Fancy for more information.

Please Note: There won't be any classes in February, I'll be taking the month off. See you again in March!

December Cricut Class

Merry Christmas everyone! 

This month we are making tags. These are big 5" tags that would be great on gifts. After I took the pictures, I added some green and red ribbons to the top of each tag. 

All of the tags can be found on the Phrases cartridge.

Our first tag is a cute Santa from the Simply Charmed cartridge. He is ready to deliver gifts to all the good girls and boys.




Our cute snowman is from the Winter Woodland cartridge. He is bringing warm winter wishes to a special someone.



The Merry and Bright Christmas tree is from the Winter Frolic cartridge. This tag would look great on a gift under your tree!



This pretty angel is from the Quilted Christmas cartridge. She is ready to spread joy to a lucky person on your gift list.



Our last tag is a great silver bell and holly from the Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. 

I only have one class this month on Friday, December 12 at 10:30 am. Contact Craft Fancy for more information.

November Cricut Class

Welcome to the November Circut Class. This month we are making Christmas Cards. I've got some new Christmas cartridges that we are going to use. So let's get started.


First up we have some pretty little ornaments. These are from the Merry and Bright cartridge. The branch is from the Picturesque cartridge. I've added some gems and I think we might add some stickles to them to make them glitter just a bit.

 


Our next card is a Nativity scene from the Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. I love the simple silhouette style of this card.




The next two cards are from the Wild Card and Art Philosophy cartridges. I used the cut out portion of the trees on the circle card to make the trees on the second card.


Our last item is a post-it note holder. The flower on the back is from the Holiday Cards cartridge and the swirls are from Graphically Speaking.





















Class will be held on Friday, November 21 from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm at Craft Fancy. Hope to see you there.

October Cricut Class

Hi Everyone!

I know this is very late - but here are the cards for my October Cricut classes.

Our first one isn't a card, but a cute leaf box from the Fall & Winter Tablescapes cartridge. It would be great for little Thanksgiving treats.



The Happy Fall card is from the Accent Essentials and Artiste cartridges. I really like the crunched up and distressed leaves.



More fall leaves and acorns on this card. I used Small Talk Frames and the Art Philosophy cartridges on this card.



The single leaf card is from the Accent Essentials and Artbooking cartridges. I like the round window in the card.



Our last card was made using the new Print then Cut function on the Cricut Explore machine. It is a pretty cool way to make a card, especially when your images have lots of little pieces like these from Create a Critter 2.



The next class will be Friday, October 24 at 10:30 am.

If you are interested in learning more about the new Explore machine, I will be holding an Explore the Explore class on Wednesday, October 29. Class times are 10:30 am - 12:30 pm and 5:30 - 7:30 pm
