Project Life and the Cricut Craft Room!

Have you discovered Pinterest If you have you already know how much fun and how much time Pinterest can swallow!  You sit down and suddenly two hours later ..ooops!  If you have no idea what I talking about, here a brief idea of what Pinterest is all about.  Basically it is an online bulletin board..all those recipes, tips and tricks, dream rooms, hairstyles, outfits, vacation ideas, DIY projects…see there is no short answer.  I am going to take something from one of my Pinterest boards and actually Do It.  This “pin” is on my Cricut Board and combines two of my favs…Cricut and Project Life.

Here is what I pinned:

Here is a video to show you HOW I actually took this from pin to project!

Welcome 2014!

I always look at New Years Day as a time for giving thanks for all of our blessings from the past year, and looking forward to what is to come.  I try to choose a word that represents that for me and sometimes it is all new and sometimes my tried and true just seems to work.  This year is one of those years … BELIEVE .. is my word for 2014.

Believe that we are loved and protected … Believe I am right where I am supposed to be … Believe that I ask and I will receive …Believe that the Lord has a plan for me … yes my FAITH is my guiding light and sometimes I share it with all of you.


What is new in 2014 here at Let’s Learn…

I had so much fun with my Cricut Club members last year … I am doing it again…TWICE!  One for Cricut Craft Room lovers and one for Silhouette users too.   Members of the CLUB will receive:

  • an invite to a private Facebook group where we share questions and get answers about Silhouettes or Cricuts (Depends on which club you join!)
  • a Class to Go each month
  • a LIVE question and answer chat each month
  • a Whisper to GO each month

To celebrate this new club…and you can see what it is all about … I am offering a free WEEK for all!  The Membership Sales (10.00 a month)  will begin  January 6th but are FREE until then!  I am excited to share my love of Cricuts and Cameos with you in a warm and supportive group.  So be sure that you like either  for Cricut Craft Room Club   or for Silhouette Cameo Club.   The First CLASS TO GO will appear on Monday morning and be available all week.  You can test things out and see what you think.  Hugs, Cara

Sneak Peek…from Cara not CHA

Everywhere you look this week there are Sneak Peeks of new products coming …in a few months.  I have a sneak peek of a product that is just waiting to be ordered in 8 short days… August 1st!  Close to My Heart’s Artbooking Cricut Cartridge Bundle is amazing and I wanted to show you a lil bit of some of the interesting little know images on this cartridge.

Why would you want to host a Close to My Heart Gathering with me?!

Well, here are a few reasons.  It is really fun!  You and your friends will explore fun scrapbook products from Close to My Heart (ok you can’t touch them but you will get to check them out online!) and you will also enjoy an online Cricut class with ME  featuring either the Cricut Craft Room or All About the Cricut (your choice)

How this works:  I will set up your Gathering and you will receive a unique link to share with your friends.  Anything ordered using your link counts toward your Gathering Sales Totals and help earn you free product.  Generally the link is open for two to four weeks.  You pick an evening  during that period and we will get together online for your Cricut Class. I also provide time for Q&A from your guests.  I will also present some information about various Close to My Heart products and help your friends choose just what they need at the best price.  It is my job to help them get the most product for their money.  The Cricut Class will be recorded so folks that miss the live event can watch at their convenience.  Come on…doesn’t that sound like fun?!  and you can even wear your jammies and you don’t have to claen the house!    email me and we will get things rolling :)
