Christmas Nine Patch

Hi Everyone!

I'm back! I know it has been a couple of months since my last post. 

I want to share the project for my new class -  Christmas Nine Patch:

I had a lot of fun picking out the different elements for this one. Don't you just love that cute Santa and his little Elf? It might be hard to see in the photo, but there is quite a bit of sparkle on this one, both gems and a little bit of glitter.

The class is Monday, November 16 - 11:00 am - 1:00 pm or 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Kits are also available, just contact Craft Fancy for more information.

I've got another new class that I will share with you next week!

I thought I would also share the gift card holders from last week's Cricut Workshop.

Hi Everyone! I hope your summer is going well. I'm really late posting the cards for my August Classes. My class is next Friday, August 28 so there is plenty of time to sign up if you would like to take the class. Just contact Craft Fancy to sign up.

On to the cards. I decided to go with a sail boat theme this month. I thought it was fitting for lazy summer days.

The first card is from the Creative Memories Traveler cartridge. Don't you want to be on a sail boat cruising around a tropical island?

Our next boat is from the Pooh and Friends cartridge. I added some doodling to this one.

The next two cards are from the Just Because Cards cartridge. I think this is my favorite sail boat, which is why I used it on two cards.

Our last card is from the Designer's Calendar cartridge. This boat looks like it is ready for a race!

Class times are: Friday, August 28 - 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Hope to see you there!

June Cricut Workshop

Welcome to the June Cricut Workshop at Craft Fancy. This month I thought we would do some simple cards. Just some basic images on white cards. I love the way they turned out and I hope you do to.

I saw a stamped version of this card on the Bella Blvd. Studio blog and thought that it would be easy to make a similar card with my Cricut. I used the baby onsie from the Cricut Sampler cartridge and then used my explore to write the sentiment and the little hearts.

This card is from the Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge. A pretty tag and butterfly open up to reveal a gift card hidden inside. And yes, those are more melted perler beads decorating the card.

This pretty flower is from the Four Seasons Home Decor cartridge. I thought it would be nice as a sympathy card.

This pretty flower trio is from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and will brighten someone's day.

Our last card is from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. A bunch of stars to congratulate someone on a job well done, or wish them a happy birthday.

Classes are: Monday, June 15 - 10:30 am - 12:30 pm and 5:30 - 7:30 pm
                   Friday, June 26 - 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

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


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!
