Cricut Club

If you like taking my classes but don’t know where to go after the basics, check out my Cricut Club.

Every month I do a different cartridge. Sometimes you’ll get to bring your machine and cut, sometimes I’ll do the cutting and you’ll get to put together your project such as in the Paper Dolls class.

I do several Cricut Club classes. Check out the Events page for a schedule.

To get the most out of the Cricut Club, you should have a basic knowledge of the Cricut. Check out Cricut Basics if you haven’t taken my basic class. Classes are limited and fill up quickly, so sign up early to guarantee your spot.

I also do a Design Studio club. Check out my Design Studio page for more information.

For my Cricut Club in September, I have decided to use the Stand and Salute cartridge and do an Exloding Box.

Exploding Box

What’s an exploding box you ask?

It’s a 3-D photo frame. You can decorate it anyway you want, I chose a red, white and blue patriotic theme.

Exploding Box

I’ll be doing several classes in September. Check the events page for more details.

For this project you’ll need:

  • Xyron adhesive
  • Bonefolder, Score-pal, or Scor it
  • 2 way zig glue

If you can think it… you can Cri-cut!!

If you haven’t been a part of my Cricut Club, now is a great time to join. Because in August we are exploring the 50 States. No it’ s not a field trip, it’s the 50 States Cartridge.

Maybe you’ve looked at it, maybe you’ve thought about buying it, maybe you already own it but don’t know quite what it can do. This class will show you. In addition to cutting out the shape of each state, it cuts out each state bird, flower, and flag. It also prints out the name of the capital and the states.

July Cricut Club-Paper Dolls
icon1 Crazy about Cricut | icon2 Cricut Club | icon4 07 2nd, 2009| icon33 Comments »

If you are like me and like detailed projects, have I got a treat for you. Paper dolls, in this case the Wizard of Oz characters. This is a class I am currently doing with my Cricut Club , and although it was time consuming, it was definitely a lot of fun for those involved.

Paper dolls

For this project, I used the basic designs of C Swarts, who I met on the cricut.com message boards and the Paper Doll Dressup Cartridge.

In this particular class, there wasn’t a lot any cutting on the students part, as I had made up kits in advance and had one ready for each person to put together their own characters.

Everyone had the same pieces and parts, and had fun putting together each individual character, but the details, such as faces, were all up to each student’s creativity and imagination.

I am teaching this class all month, so I have several different classes. Originally I wanted each student to be able to cut out their own pieces to make the finished project themselves, however I quickly discovered that wasn’t going to happen in a two hour class. So I set out to cut out each character and after making up the characters for display, I cut out what seems like hundreds of bodies, clothing and hats, as well as all the various details. You wouldn’t want a Tin Man without a heart, and what’s Dorothy without Toto?

So it was definitely more that I had originally anticipated but after witnessing the excitement from my class as they had fun gluing their pieces together and drawing on faces, I have to say, it was worth it.

If you are interested in making your own Wizard of Oz paper dolls, check out the Events page for a class near you. Eventually I plan to make this class into a workshop setting, where each person brings their Cricut and spends an entire day cutting out their individual pieces themselves. I am planning a weekend so keep checking back if interested, and hope to see you soon!
