Cricut Christmas class



Morning to you all, hope your week is going well.

Just a really quick post from work to share a couple of the cards the girls made in class on Monday. It was only a two hour class focused on Christmas cards so I though instead of stamping we would work with the Cricut Mini as it went down well the other week. They are loving the versatility of the machine as well as it's neat size which as I might have said before punches well above it's weight in functionality.


The top card uses images from Christmas Cheer and Celebrate with Flourish, the holly and Sentiment are from Teresa Collins Christmas Holly cartridge.

For the second card we concentrated on the welding facility to join the 'Merry' from Lyrical Letters cartridge along with Christmas from the cartridge of the same name and a basic square from George. To crate each poinsettia three flowers were cut in different sizes and assembled with some liuid pearls in the centre and the leaves are from Simply Sweet cartridge.

Needless to say the girls loved the versatility of the machine and Joan tells me she has ordered one for the sole purpose of making her Christmas cards although I am confident she will find lots of other occasions when it will come in useful.

Thanks for popping in.

  33. Great cards Brenda. Love the Merry and the reverse image of the Christmas script!

    I would take your class if I loved in England...as I have a cricut that I have never used! Well, maybe once with my girlfriend but she did everything!
    So embarrassing to admit. I have joined a new group of ladies to make cards andcrop with every two weeks, I will learn there as they have a shared cricut available and I will bring some cartridges for others to use too! Then I will get to watch the others and how they use it. I learn best by watching and observing.
    It is due to my concussion that I haven't tried it...I struggle with learning new things so sometomes avoid them...lol
