Cricut: The Official Blog

You know what they say - cold hands, warm heart. Not so sure about the cold hands part, but I do know that my heart is warmed when I think of winter and all of the memories that go along with it. Ice skating, building snowmen, and sitting by the fireplace drinking hot chocolate (gotta have the marshmallows!).

So in honor of my favorite season, here's my newest class project. This class will be held here at my home in Rocklin on Wednesday, November 4th at 6pm. Yes, it's a long way off, but I just couldn't help myself. My favorite cartridge - A Child's Year - was just begging to be used. And that's the only cartridge used here - it's amazingly versatile! Alrighty, so you might need more details rather than me gushing about this cart. The class fee is $25, which includes all materials and easy to follow directions. I also include a Cricut Cut Chart, which shows you line by line exactly what you need to cut with your bug - including color of paper, size, feature buttons, object, page # in booklet, blade and pressure. Plus all cuts are grouped by color to make it even more efficient for you. There will also be color photographs included with the directions. If you can't make it to the class, or if you just haven't convinced your husband to move out to Northern California yet, you can certainly order a kit. Kits are $25 + shipping, which is generally $5-$9 in the US depending on your location. To sign up or order a kit, you can email me at or leave a comment here with your email address so I can get back to you.

And I must tell you that these brand new papers are gorgeous!! You can 't tell from the photos, but the large snowflakes are flocked, and some of the papers have a soft metalic shimmer to them. Very yummy! To complete this project, you'll need your Cricut (any model will do), A Child's Year cartridge, brown or tan chalk ink, a Crop-a-dile or other hole punch, pop dots, a white gel pen and of course your basic tools.

Well, back to the real world and warm temperatures! But maybe I'll get to dream of falling snow and yummy gingerbread houses tonight. :) What are a few of your favorite winter memories???
