I also happen to teach classes at my local Joann. My favorite classes to teach are the Cricut how-to classes. I love taking people from being afraid to take their machine out of the box, to feeling confident and hopefully inspired to go home and get creating! Once in a while though, they ask me to teach some of their other papercrafting classes. It's at these times that I realize that I might have become a little, can I say, lazy in my creating.
These were a challenge for me! I know it's a little hard to tell from the picture, so let me explain. These are all ATC sized cards that are from the Spotted Canary class Sew Natural Photo Tree. They are intended to have photos placed on the back of the cards, mounted on a dowel and arranged in a vase. But I have found that for display purposes, it's better to arrange my samples in a way that they are mounted away from wandering fingers. These were all made using a Tim Coffey line of K & Company products. Can I just say, I didn't even know stuff like this existed! Well, maybe I know they existed, but I never really paid attention to them. Why would I? I have 2 Cricuts AND a Silhouette SD, so I guess I just don't think about buying pre-made cuts. And I certainly don't take the time to pull out my embroidery floss and hand stitch my projects. It was time consuming, and a little tedious, but I think they turned out beautifully. Hopefully the customers at my local Joann will think so too and want to take the class!
