New Cricut Classes

Dear Scrappers,
I will start teaching two new cricut classes next week using the winter frolic cartridge: Cricut Card tricks and "Out of the Page"
Both are super cute, and use the same cartridge
No need to buy it, because I have it also in my gypsy, and you can use the store expression to learn if you don't have a cricut.
Here is a sample of one of the cards that I made yesterday for a Demo in Windcrest:






I will be doing a demo next week at the Arbor Park Michaels to finish the class samples

Class descriptions and pictures of each class

Hi dear scrappers,

Here is a more detailed class description with some pictures as examples of what it can be accomplished during the class. All classes have an "use your own stash" approach, so you don't have to buy anything if you already have the necessary supplies in your own stash ;-)
 All 12 classes that I am offering. I am just missing a picture for the "Christmas Cards class"


 My Board at the Arbor Park's Michaels location

 Texture Wow- 5 different texturing techniques

 One of 5 cards made with "Card Tricks"

 Happy Birthday America Class

Second card from the "Card Tricks" Class...

The Glitter and Punch around classes can be customized to do Christmas cards too. I did a Punch Around the Page Class with Christmas related papers, the snow flake punch set, and my students will add the stickers later...
I took a picture and will post it tomorrow ;-)

Hope to see you there,

Wall decoration

I did these two wall hangings last year while doing the cricut demos.



This one I did for my Mother-in-law's birthday. I used the wall decor and more cricut cartridge, heat embossing of a background CTMH stamp, and a picture from all her grandchildren...




This wall hanging is for my daughter's room. Also made with the wall decor and more cartridge, glitter and sticklers...

I hope you enjoy it ;-)

Mini-Album for a Friend's B-D


The journaling spots serve as pockets fro the gift cards and I left them blank so that she can add her toughs later ;-)




Here we all took a piece of stamped note paper and wrote my friend our wishes for her B-D and stocked them in the two pockets...



I did this mini-album as a gift to place some gift-cards for a friend B-D. I used the Triple Play Kit from CTMH and loved it. I took the pictures in her actual B-d, and we gave her the gift a day later...

Rocky Mountains' trip last year

Hi fellow scrappers,
I did his dLO (double layout) to remember our trip to Colorado last year. We took around 600 picks during that trip, no way I will scrapbook all of them. My favorites will end up in a 6x6 mini-album and I might do one more page with some enlarged photos.
I used papers and stikcers from two different CTMH kits

I got creative with the stickers and combined several brands (CTMH and Paper work)

and combined with some of a Paper Work kit embellishments

My Son's Third Year B-Day

I did this Lo of my son 3er year B-day for an hour  challenge from Club CK "using diagonal lines". I had too much fun doing it. I really enjoy participating in challenges because it makes me to try new and fun things/techniques.

My son's party was all about Mickey Mouse and the Club House. I used papers from a monthly kit from Paper Works and some die cuts from Keller's Creation (Tag and Mickey's Ears). I printed all pictures as a one 8X10 photo collage print from Walgreen.

We even did the goody bags following the same Mickey M. theme...

Some more best LOs

I forgot to include this best double LO that I did for our meetup group Sketch challenge:


I was not completely happy with the shipboard letter, so i modified them using the great chalks from Quit Quotes. The rest are bazzil papers for the BG and K-Company die cuts. Everything came up nicely together by chalking the edges with the same color (Mango Mai Tai PowderPuff Chalking Ink).

My Best Work so far...

Hi everybody,
This a late post today, and it has the main purpose of applying for a position, which I am dying to get.

It is difficult to choose only four projects to showcase in this application, but here is my best shot:
1. This was a third place contest winner for a Creating Keepsakes Convention:



It was some early work, done with supplies from a monthly club...

These are some keepsakes that I did for the first communion of a friend of mine daughter:



I used a sample provide from a fellow CTMH consultant, and modified to fit the theme. The stamps are not CTMH though... but they still look great ;-)

It this double LO for a Sketch Challenge contest that I host in out San Antonio Scrapbooking Meetup group:
I did the title with some stickers from K-Company and my cricut. The sketch was taken from the Image book by Jeanette R. Lynton and it is called Safe & Secure. I just loved it...
And finally, I bought a wall hanging kit from Keller creating at one of the CK Conventions and did a wall hanging for my son. For my Daughter, I just bought the supplies and created the kit myself based on the boys wall hanging and really loved the results. I used my cricut to cut some of the circles and the letters for the title:
