Hello Cricuteers
The first Cricut class of 2013 is taking place at Inspirations in Preston on Sunday the 27th and Tuesday the 29th of January. I will be using Groovy Times.
for those of you waiting patiently for the dates of my retreats please bare with me a little longer until I can confirm how many places will be available.
Looking forward to another year of Cricut Inspiration.

  1. Hi Melanie, What is in the Groovy Times cartridge?

  2. It's theme is basically the 70's - groovy, hip 'n happenin' and 'rock on' :-) Psychedelic man! Go to the Cricut site and I'm sure that'll explain more professionally :-)

  3. Hi Mel,

    Are all your retreats in the North of England or do you ever get to East Anglia?


  4. Hello
    At the moment they are in Lancashire which is why I do them over a three day period to make it worth travelling......but watch this space!!!!

  5. hi mel,just to let you know my hot of the press kit has come and in production now have put my first card on blog today,love bluebell-flowerwood.

  6. hello mel,as one of your avid male crafters i would like to say thank you for all your inspiration in 2012,cant wait to see what you bring us in 2013.as you are the face of cricut in the uk i have a question..i have the mini and i love it,only had it a couple of weeks.can you tell me how i can cut the chosen image and have it stay on the A4 card rather than being left on the carrier sheet,i have tried clicking weld but no luck.i want to be able to lift off the A4 and then fold it in half and the image is there,like a laser cut..hope you can help.thank you.peter barber.

  7. hello mel 2 more cards from the hot off the press kit. love bluebell-flowerwood.

  10. Hi Peter
    Sorry for the delay. Life has been manic!!!!! Try bringing up a rectangle for example and then filling it with whatever shapes you want so the shapes overlap each other and the rectangle. Weld it all together and then cut. The preview on screen will tell you where it will cut so you can view it first. This is how I have don it on my gypsy. Then all you need to do is make sure your design is in the correct place ie. put the card on the mat and then move your design to the area that will become the front of your card and cut.
    I hope that makes sense!!! If not email me directly at melanieheaton@netscape.net
    Take care
