Join me HERE  for a free Cricut Design Space Class Tuesday October 28th at 8:00 pm eastern.

This week we are working on “Finding Images in Design Space”  and creating a layered embellishment with welded title.

Check out our new unique and exciting way to learn, sell and create!

The SHOUT is here!  And we are having a party too!

Calling all CTMH consultants…want to have a wiz bang home party that will have your customers ready to stand up and SHOUT?  Here is how to do it!  I have put together a SHOUT Party kit that includes everything you need to teach a project to up to 6 students at a home gathering.  I have created the project, figured out all the supplies, created the lesson plans and teaching materials, written directions, door prize and even invitations, snack and drink recipes and the “Gimme, Gotta Have It” wish lists for the SHOUT Party. A giant Whisper …aka The SHOUT…sits center stage and display the teaching instructions, your sales tips and step by step project instructions.

(PS you do not have to be a CTMH consultant!  You could simply want to host a fun party and earn Hostess Rewards for your party)

A private Facebook group will be offered for SHOUT instructors to ask questions and offer suggestions.

Here is what is included in each SHOUT Kit:

Close to My Heart Box of Supplies                      $50 retail value + shipping and tax

A SHOUT to teach from with project instructions and sales tips and references to current catalog           $45.00

Table Easel to hold your SHOUT                       $5.00
2 recipe cards to help you have a fun and easy party  *
6 invitation post cards  *
6 project Whispers                                                     $ 90.00
Gimme Gotta Have It cards   *
1 Whisper Door Prize                                                $ 15.00
6 snack napkins  *
6 bags for guest to bring home their projects *
and of course Hugs from me !                                priceless!

How to create a title using Just Your Cricut

layoutUsing one of my all time favorite cartridges for this project and just my Cricut!  Don’t you love those flowers too?  Art Philosophy Cartridge has sooo many images and I turn to this cartridge time and time again.  Click Here to see my Class and Whisper to GO Bundle (yes coupon code JULY will save you $2.00 on this Class and Whisper)

So …what are you doing this summer?!

I am going to take some time for my family and myself and spend MUCH less time online this summer.  I am working on lots of new Cricut classes and projects for September but in July and August, I am “unplugging” and taking some time for family and some me time.


This month I am setting up LOTS of mini Classes to GO and Whispers to GO for you too. Whispers to GO  are great because they are instant downloads that you can keep on your tablet, smart phone or computer to refer to as you GO.  Classes to GO can be watched as often as you need and because these are mini classes …you can do these quick, whenever you have a few minutes.  Make sure you are sign up for my newsletter and you will see the Class to GO Summer School Courses when they are launched.

I hope you will enjoy the Summer School Schedule and take some time to learn about a old favorite cartridge you might have missed.  I am pulling out some of my favorites …not brand new cartridges but ones that offer great, fun designs.  Some of these Classes to Go use just your Cricut (so they are not for Explore users) and some offer files in Cricut Craft Room as well as others with Design Space files.  Choose the Classes to GO  that work for  you and you will have instant access to your class materials.  Watch at your convenience.

If you complete 10 Classes to Go this summer, you will earn my Cricut Summer School Certificate and a $25.00 coupon for new classes this fall!  This is a great chance to use your Cricut this summer and save some money this fall.

Email me with Summer School in the email subject when you have completed your ten classes.  

Certificates and coupons will be sent in September.
