Cricut Class

Did you get a Cricut for Christmas and aren’t sure what to do with it, once you open the box.
Cricut Class
January 22nd,2011
Beginners Class from 10:00 to 12:00 limit 6
Advanced Class from 1:00 to 3:00 limit 8
Cost $18 per class – Can sign up for both classes
Register by contacting Fountain of Memories at 373 – 1996
The instructor for this class is Renee Thorson

The Beginner’s Class is a hand’s on class teaching you all of the basic operations of your Cricut.   You will learn to use the creative feature of your cartridges, and become very familiar with layering and shadowing your die cuts.  We will also go over all of the buttons on your machine so you are familiar with what they do.  We will cover:  Blade Depth, Pressure, Speed, Center Cut, Multi Cut, Portrait, Flip, Quantity, Fit to Page, Fit to Length, Mix and Match, and Auto Fill.  Come with lots of question.  I want you all to be comfortable using your Cricut after this class.

The Advanced Class goes beyond making basic die cuts with your Cricut.  Some of the things we will go over are the use of Cricut Markers and cutting materials other then paper with your Cricut.  Some examples of this would be vinyl for wall hangings, chipboard to make embossing folders, and thin rubber to make stamps.  I will also be showing you how to renew the life of your old mats once they have lost their “stickiness”.  Finally, I want to touch on the use of the Cricut Design Studio software and the Cricut Gypsy to enhance your designing abilities.   One of the things people love most about these design programs is that it gives you the ability to weld letters or shapes together into one image.


It’s hard to believe it is 2011 already.  Inventory is done and we are excited for the New Year to begin.  This week all of our valentine papers stickers and other products will be on sale this week from Wed January 12th to Saturday January 15th for 30%off.  This is a great time to get started on your valentines.

Also this weekend we are having a 2 day crop Friday, January 14th  5 to 10PM and Saturday January 15th  10AM to 3PM.  If you can only come for 1 day the cost is $10 if you can come for both the cost is $18.  We will have a meal each day, and snacks will be provided and don’t forget chocolate. Call to reverse your space.

We had so much fun at the Potluck Crop night in December it was decided we should do it again. On Friday, January 28th we will see what goodies show up.  Come and share a fun evening with your friends with great food, fun and fellowship with fellow crafters. The cost will be $5.
