Oh the Cricut world is a bit different

So Cricut has decided to teach you how to use their machines!

Years ago, there were only Facebook groups and a mix match of YouTube videos to learn how to Cricut. My classroom was buzzing with excited students and lots of new classes offered every month. But today is very different .....

and time for my classroom to officially change too.

I am still a scrapbooker that likes to use a Cricut BUT ... and that is a big BUT!!

Since I have fallen in love with Close To My Heart, I have discovered a whole new world! I had no idea how limiting my world was by focusing only on the techy side of Design Space. I discovered that I love embossed shapes, I love stamped images, I love die cut shapes from dies, I love stickers, I love ribbons, and many times a trimmer works better (horrors!!!) than a Cricut!

And I can create a layout that I love without a Cricut too. Choices choices!

So I am not ditching the Cricut, just not teaching Cricut Design Space classes anymore. There are sooo many other choices to learn how to use the machines now, even from Cricut.

Now, my classes can focus on page layouts, simple sketches, color, texture, embellishments, stamps, embossing and inking!

Yes, the Cricut will still be a tool in my toolbox but it will not be the only one!

Sing along with me "It's a whole new world!"
