I was asked to do a class at Carols Crafts on the Cricut today. I hope I managed to teach them something they didn't already know. We also made some cards so that they went home with something.
Here they are
This is a little notebook that we covered. The letters have been cut using the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge that comes with the Cricut Expression. The flower was cut using the Stretch your Imagination cartridge using blackout shadow and silhouette.
The ribbon is a Trimcraft ribbon and the white cardstock is from the Papermill.
'Owl' love you
This is one using the Storybook Cartridge. I have cut the owl out using black and white card from The Papermill. The backing paper is Basic Grey. The text is cut from the same cartridge. I have used white gel pen to join up the two pieces of
paper and then placed a small white pearl on the join. The swirl at the top of the pages is also cut from the Storybook cartridge.
This is where I want to be right now. Well after this weekend because I am going to Claxby tomorrow (more of that in a moment).
This was done using the Doodlecharms cartridge with the writing cut from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge (this comes with the original Cricut). The sun was inked around to give it some definition as was the sandcastle. (with SU! So Saffron ink) The sky was sponged with blue ink to give it a patchy look.
They were done as simple cards because they were beginners on the class and I didn't want to baffle them with science.
I hope you like
Back to Claxby. I am going the viking centre in Claxby for a crafting weekend with some very good and dear friends. We meet maybe 3-4 times a year and each time it is as though we have not been parted.
I am going tomorrow and taking Andy (my hubby), so there will be lots of photos at the end of the weekend.
