Sweet Summertime

The left page says "sweet," and the right page says "summertime." It's a lot of fun!
This layout is cute, fun, and most importantly, very summer-y! This double spread layout will be perfect for your summer pictures! With florals, and an innovative opaline pearl line from Basic Grey along with cute paper, cute letter stickers, and the help of the Cricut Die Cut Machine, this layout will go great with your collection.
Be sure to sign up at Memories on Fifth in Coralville.
This time, along with the class, each member will get a little packet of papers with very helpful tips on how to use the Cricut and what each feature is designed to help you do. I have taken a lot of time to make sure to be thorough with instuctions, sizes, pressure, blade, and speed gages, and other various things to help new users find the Cricut a little less overwhelming and stressful.
Thanks so much everyone!
As always, if you have any questions at all, feel free to shoot me an e-mail or call me at anytime.

Be sure to join me for the class!

Fun on the Fourth Follow Up

Hello everyone!
On Tuesday I had the Fun on the Fourth class. I was happy to have done it to know what I as an instructor needs to improve on to help others understand the cricut and how to use it to their advantage.
So, I have further instructions for those of you who didn't get quite finished, and I will also be posting pictures of the August layout. This one is a bit easier, and I am printing off charts with things such as helpful tips on how to use the Cricut as we speak! So, hopefully that will make it a bit easier on you guys next time!
I hope you guys had a good time, and if you're a little stressed out about using the Cricut, don't fret because I have more information for you all that should help you out a lot next time. :)
Thanks to all who came and thanks for helping me learn what I need to do next!
FOR COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS: I have complete instructions on how to make the Fun on the Fourth pages all typed up, however Blogger does not allow copying and pasting items into a blog post. So, all you have to do if you want them is e-mail me at: and I will e-mail you the complete instructions as soon as I receive your e-mail.
Sorry that this post is late, but as some of you know, I work more than full time. :)
Have a great night (or day) everyone!
