Cricut classes this week

We are Cricuting like crazy at Charleston Scrapbooking. Classes we have this week:

--Layering with your Cricut-- Tues 7/20 @ 6:30pm
The Mom will show you the tricks to layering with your Cricut. You will benefit from this class whether you have the Original, Create, or Expression machine. We use the Mickey and Friends and the Mickey Font cartridges, because I am such a Disney fan. But, the class is all about the technique, so join us for some fun! All materials provided. Below is the student supply list. Don't worry if you don't have these items, as we can share (except adhesive). Also, items available for purchase at a discount. Please call ahead so your class kit is ready.

Student supply list
Cricut Machine
Paper & Pen (for note taking)
Good Mat
Cricut tools
Paper trimmer
Bring the Mickey cartridges if you have them. Don't worry if you don't, I have extras.

--Cricut Advance--Thurs 7/22 @ 6:30pm
In this class you will cut on multiple media. You'll learn how to: make a stamp, a magnet, an embossing folder, and stencils, etch glass and cut chip board. Cricut 101, although not mandatory, is recommended prior to taking this class. Remember, the 101 class comes with Mom's personal guarantee. Regardless of what you know or how long you have had your Cricut, you will learn enough in my Cricut 101 class to get your money's worth. If you feel like you didn't, I'll credit the fee toward another class. You have nothing to lose! So, take the 101, then come to the Advanced class to play with all the fun materials. Doesn't matter which machine you have, the Original, the Create, or the Expression, you'll have fun and learn so much you'll want to run home and put your new skills to work. Don't worry if you don't have these items, as we can share (except adhesive). Also, items available for purchase at a discount. Please call ahead so your class kit is ready.

Student Supplies:
Cricut Machine (don't forget the cord :)
Tacky Mat
Cricut tools (if you have them)
Deep cut blade w/housing (if you have it)
Your favorite cartridge
Scissors and paper trimmer
Liquid and dry adhesive

Come see The Mom!

Cricuteers with machines and cartridges to sell

We have a couple of avid Cricut lovers who have outgrown or double bought some Cricut goodies and have asked me to spread the word for them. Just post on the blog if you are interested and I'll be in touch. Or, you can call me at 843-569-3559, or email to

One offer is, loosely quoted: A Cricut machine never used. It will include two cartridges (George and Basic Shapes and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More), a Cricut Traveling Bag on Rollers, extra blade, and a bunch of other new goodies to go along.

Another customer bought 2 Going Places cartridges and is selling one.

Just let us know if you are interested and we'll help you get together.

Happy Cricuting!
The Mom

We're Swarmin' !!!!

We're all at the Cricut Swarm and having a Cricut good time! Tamara's playing and sharing her 53 cartridges! She may get the most cartridges in your rolling tote award. Although, Mz O is giving her some stiff competition.

Cathy made her first Cricut card!

Check out this adorable watering can, made by Kathy.
She used some tricks The Mom taught her and added some of her own!

Ruby, Frankie, and yes even Roland joined in on the fun. Jackie and Pat stopped by to ogle the players' work. The ladies brought Olive Garden leftovers to bribe The Mom. Yummmm

And just because I can, I gave the Cricut Club members an additional 10% off their Provo Cricut purchases. They came in at the right time and got 35% off! Pat snagged the Just Because Cards cartridge and the ladies were all over the mats and tools. You never know when the Mom will decide to do something extra for the CCMs. :)

Cricut Swarm next Saturday - 7/10

Come join your Cricut-happy friends for challenges and to swap ideas. We signed up with Provo Craft and started our local Swarm in 2007 and have been having fun ever since. Dive into cartridges for hidden treasures and learn from the best. There is no fee for this event! Bring your machine and your cartridges and whatever you would like to work on. The Mom will be available to answer any Cricut, Design Studio and Gypsy questions.

We are all set up in the new HUGE crop space and ready for you to choose a table and spread out.

See you then.
