Did you get a Cricut, and it is still in the box!? No worries…I will walk you through all the cool things a Cricut can do for you. We will start at the beginning, like how to turn it on, and then we will go from there. I will show you how to use the most basic buttons on your Cricut, and then we will get to cutting. By the time class is over you will have the hang of your machine, and even think like a Cricut thinks. We will cover the keys and their functions and also discuss mat tips, and sprays, and all kinds of other ideas and tricks. All class participants must bring their own Cricut Machines, and MATS! Also please bring some of your scraps, or “junk paper” to do our test runs on. I will also provide with a cheat sheet, loaded with great ideas. You will also be able to special order whatever cartridges you would like to get through the store. I can’t wait to meet you and get you Cri-cutting like masters! Just $20.
