Basic Cricut Class and Cricut Craft Room Class

August 18th (Sunday) I will be having a short basic cricut class and a class on using the cricut craft room, where you will get hands on in the craft room using Art Philosphy or Artisite from Close to my heart.

The Cricut Craft Room enables you to take your cricut crafting to a new level! Learning all these skills will get you ready for the release of the truly revolutionary Artbook cricut cartridge on August 1st. We may have a sneak peak project form this as well.

Mainly, I want to help you understand the basics of the craft room, which will allow you to be more comfortable exploring on your own.

If you are interested in coming, please let me know. Due to the hands on nature of this class, I am going to  limit it to 6 attendees. If there is a good deal of interest, I will schedule another class.
I will give you the "what to bring" details later.

1-2 pm Basics class
2-5 pm Cricut Craft Room Class and sneak peek of Artbook.

This will be at my house and snack provided.
Cost $10 or free with $25 order.
I will be posting a sample soon of the project we will do which will cover the most common skills.

Finished Covers

Here is a picture of the finished covers I made for our outdoor Martha Stewart furniture.
The covers on the original disintegrated after 2 years and MS doesn't sell replacements. I got the sunbrella fabric at JoAnn's for $11.99 per yard (Sunbrella is $25+/yard in catalogs and online). There is a company called Sailrite that has great videos on covering just about everything step by step and very clear videos. The piping was the expensive part, so I did not pipe everything like I would if it was my indoor furniture that needed the totally polished look. It looks nice, but a tad on the shabby chic side. In the catalogs, replacement cushions would have been more than $300. I finished these for $120.00 with the sales at JoAnn's and their great 40-50% off coupons.

Now on to the next project.....
