May Cricut Class

Happy Spring! The trees and flowers are blooming and the weather is trying to warm up. I chose some pretty, Spring paper for the May Cards. I really like all the cards this month. Click on the photos to make them bigger.

So, first up we have a card from the new Everyday Pop Up Cartridge. I'm having some trouble figuring out the pop up part of the card. Hopefully I can get it figured out so we can add it during the classes.

Next up are some cherries from the Country Life cartridge. The plain and scalloped circles are from Mini Monograms. You can't really tell from the picture, but the sentiment is on a straight pin. Very easy to put together and it looks great.

Next up is a great Father's Day card. This is from the new Wrap It Up cartridge. Melissa thinks it looks like one of the cars from Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Disneyland. I think it is pretty cute. The will have a sentiment on it. I couldn't find an appropriate stamp so I will have to print something up on the computer. I also used the Accent Essentials cartridge for the label shapes.

Next up is a pretty textured flower from Plantin Schoolbook. I used one of the Tim Holtz texture fades to emboss one of the flowers and leaves. (The vase on the first card is also embossed with the Cuttlebug dots embossing plate.

Last, but not least, we have Thanks a Melon from Simply Charmed and Just Because Cards.

Hope you can join me in classes this month. Classes are: Tuesday, May 10 at 10:30 am or 5:30 pm; and Friday May 27 at 10:30.

I'm also teaching a mini book class on May 17 at 10:30 am and 5:30 pm. I'll post pictures of that class tomorrow.

For those of you who are looking for pictures from our cruise, I'll start posting those on Monday.

I really love these - especially the Father's Day card and the one with the cherries.

They're all really fun.

Good luck with winning the kit.
