Welcome to Cricut Basics Class 101!

When designing a class it is always hard to get started and come up with something original.  SO why invent the wheel?

Here is the idea for my first card..... 'scraplifted' from a few blog posts.
You can find the original post on Jeanette Lynton's blog here... PLUS with a little help from Jody Gustafson here,

This is my design...

After the first class I taught in 2013, I learned to start out S..L..O...W...

So in this lesson, I am teaching the basic concepts ...
*Portrait vs. Landscape
*Real Dial Size vs. "Cricut Size"...

We cut the card at 3 1/2" and it matched the envelope perfectly!

Then we cut the 3 hearts for the card at Real Dial Size of 1"....then we turned off "Real Dial" size and cut with "Cricut" size....  what a difference!

Here are pictures of the other 2 cards and the Valentine card Holder from the class

In this lesson, I am teaching the basic concepts ...
*Repeat Last
*How to make the flower

The inspiration for this card came from Mandy Leahy's blog here..
I mixed it up alittle and added the "love you"

In this lesson, I am teaching the basic concepts ...
*Sizing Images
*Repeat Last - we got this one!
*Faux Matting

This Valentine card holder is totally mine!  

In this lesson, I am teaching the basic concepts ...
*Fit To Page
*Fit To Length

Here is a picture of the ladies finishing up the projects.
