Online class giveaway!

This week on the blog, My Creative Life 2014, I am giving away a free seat to my brand new online class, "Cricut: Crafting with Vinyl". The class begins on Monday March 24th and I'd love for you to join me.  There are three ways to participate in the Giveaway. Do all three and increase your chance of winning! Head on over there and get in on the prize. Someone's gonna win...will it be you???

Course Description

There are loads of ways you can use your Cricut machine to create projects with vinyl and vinyl-like materials. Choose a self-adhesive product in just about any color or pattern. Put it on your walls, a glass votive, or an artist canvas. You can even cut an image
with heat transfer vinyl in either a matte or fuzzy texture and iron it onto a fabric item like a T-shirt or tote bag. The possibilities are almost endless.

In this class, students will l
earn how to cut adhesive vinyl, contact paper, heat transfer vinyl, and flocked heat transfer vinyl and create a project with each of these materials. Students will receive downloadable Cricut Craft Room files for the various projects, but I'll also share tips on how I create my files. Lessons offer several project options!

Use any Cricut machine and any cartridge you own.
Students must have basic knowledge of their Cricut machine and the Cricut Craft Room (CCR).

Lessons Include:
  • Lesson 1: Introduction to Vinyl and Other Vinyl-Like Materials
  • Lesson 2: Adhesive Vinyl/Cricut Vinyl/Oracal 631 - Project #1: Subway Art Canvas (several options)
  • Lesson 3: Contact Paper - Project #2: Refrigerator Chalkboard/Menu Board
  • Lesson 4: Heat Transfer Vinyl and Flocked Heat Transfer Vinyl - Project #3: Your choice T-shirt, tote, etc.
The course materials and projects in this class are totally new and different from "Crafting with the Cricut: Beyond Paper".


This giveaway ends on Monday March 17th at midnight. I will post the winner on the My Creative Life 2014 blog on Tuesday March 18th.


  1. Thnak you so much for the opportunity to win a free seat. I have always wanted to try out this medium, but don't know where to start, or what I need to buy, etc. I've always wanted to make those beautiful vinal word/wall art. this class would be a BIG help! :)

  2. I am so happy for the oportunity you are giving us. I am very excited of learning how to use vinyl with my cricut machine, since I have only worked it with paper. Can't wait to try out other materials as well. Thanks again.

  3. I would love to add this class to my collection of Cricut classes. These mini classes have been great extensions of the "Beyond Paper" class. Thank you!

  4. I bought some vinyl but never used it. Thanks for the chance to win a seat in this class.

  5. I don't use my Cricut nearly as much as I should. Maybe some classes are in order!
