Cricut Class
Saturday, March 19th, 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.
