Online class giveaway!!

Hi, I'm Shirley Pando, instructor at My Creative Classroom and part of the website support team. In fact, if you email the MCC help desk (support.mcc@gmail.com), I'm the person you'll hear back from. :-)

Do you own a Cricut machine? Maybe you are looking for more to do with it...or maybe it's gathering dust...gasp! Well, no more, I say. Come join me on a journey to discover what your Cricut machine can do for you. It's more than just little die cuts. :-)
For each of the first four months of 2014 I'm introducing another brand new online Cricut class:
I call these mini classes, but if you  know me you know I don't do anything in a "mini" way. All my classes are packed to the gills, and these will be no different. A lesser price, sure, but no less info and projects. You just can't lose! :-)

Our second class, "Cricut: Crafting with Coloring Tools" begins on Monday February 24th, my birthday! So let's have a giveaway!

Course Description
Using coloring tools with a die cut machine sounds like such an oxymoron to me. They don't seem like they should go together. But, oh, they do! Maybe you received Cricut Color Markers with the purchase of your Cricut machine and are stumped as to what exactly to do with them. If you need a little inspiration, then this class is for you. Join me in this 4-lesson class to learn how to use Cricut Color Markers, mini gel pens, and mini Sharpie markers with your Cricut machine while making several cards and other projects. Take your crafting to a whole new level!

Students will receive downloadable CCR files to use in class projects PLUS I will show you tips for creating your own files. 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 Coloring Tools
  • Lesson 2: Basic Use of Coloring Tools
  • Lesson 3: Four Cards - Borders, Backgrounds, and Images
  • Lesson 4: Lots of "Little Extras"
The course materials and projects in this class are totally new and different from "Crafting with the Cricut: Beyond Paper".

  1. I'm really curious about the vinyl. I think that would be a lot of fun to play with!

  2. I'm really interested in how to use the markers. I've bought some, just never used them... shoot, just using my cricut would be a start...

    thanks for the chance to win a free class with you!

  3. I'm interested in the markers as I have them but have never played with them.

  4. Where'd my reply go? Anyway, in case it disappeared, thanks again for the opportunity to win a spot in this class.

  5. I'm embarrassed to say that I've never used my Cricut so I could REALLY use this class. Maybe it would help me get started. :-)

  6. Thanks for the opportunity .Sounds like fun

  7. I have used my Cricut but have never colored with it all even though I have the things to do it with. I just don't know how to do it so haven't tried it yet. You could say I'm Chicken. Hugs, Janie

  8. Like Barbie says have them but have not played with them. I bought them with good intentions but it seems like good intentions always fly out the window.

  9. I would love to learn how to cut fabric with my cricut.

  10. I'm working on the stencil class now, and have already registered for the coloring class (but I'd be glad to win it!) The vinyl class looks like fun, too. Shirley doesn't lie when she says her classes are jam packed! Love them!

  11. I would like to learn about cutting fabric and vinyl.

  15. Best Wishes on your Birthday Shirley! Appreciate this chance to win a FREE seat to "Cricut: Crafting with Coloring Tools". Would like to learn how to cut fabric with my Cricut Expression.
