Get excited because our tour guides outdid themselves in designing these adventures! Below you’ll find the event schedule with photos of all the incredible projects.
Presentations will be LIVE for 24 hours starting at 9:00 AM EST the day they’re scheduled.
Adventures are more exciting when you’ve someone to share them with! So instead of a boring old schedule page, we decided to take you along on the journey by sharing our travel journal. Enjoy!
Today, we started the adventure with the cutest hike into the faux-leather forest with Amy, re-discovered how fun photo maps are with Abbi, adventured into the wood(s) with Jen’s engraved wood journals, tripped up the mountain in Lucy’s VW van pop-up card, stopped to frame up a photo-op with Sarah’s layered shadowbox decor, and ended the day on the beach with a cute little paper tote that Michelle from 12″ x 12″ Cardstock showed us how to make!
I ended the day with a cup of hot tea made in a mug using sublimation that I learned from Jennifer’s Expedition (wow! Live!) – and I FINALLY learned how to use Design Space on mobile from Gjoa. Now I can create on the go! It was the perfect first day of this creative adventure.
“So excited to start the Cricut Adventure with Tour Guide Amy Romeu and this simple but fabulous faux leather project!”
“Woohoo! It’s an adventure with this engraving wood tutorial! And be sure to share in the Facebook group if this is something you had no idea you could do with a Cricut!”
“Keep track of where you’ve been or dream of where you’d like to go with this personalized map wall decor. Abbi Kirsten shares enough variations; you’ll want to make more than one too!”
“Luuuucy! You’ve done it again! Lucy Foxworth makes the cutest pop-up cards, and this little van would make a great choice for grads, bdays, retirement or anyone getting ready for their next adventure.”
“Layered paper projects are always a favorite, both because they’re so easy and the results are magical. You’ll love the addition of the photos to this project!”
“I absolutely LOVE the little details on this project. The little lei and sunglasses totally make this project, and this will definitely add WOW factor to my gifts!”
“I’ve seen so much about sublimation but had no clue I could combine it with my Cricut crafting! Mind is blown – I can’t wait for this LIVE event!”
This Special Event will be held on March 28th and a replay will be available to all ticket holders later that week.
“THANK YOU! I’ve been waiting for someone to show me how to use Cricut’s mobile apps.”
Today I spent a little time taking photos so I could make Emily’s cute little suitcase photo box, gave my luggage tags a bling makeover with Tisa’s workshop, personalized my travel containers with Stephanie’s adorable labels, planned ahead to keep the kids busy with Naomi’s travel game, got adventurous woodburning with Kelly and Creative Fabrica, and finished the day with a little something fabulous (Laura’s layered vinyl tumblers)!
THEN, I grabbed a sandwich and watched Jen’s workshop on designing with Procreate, and after experiencing the Hat Press with Megan, I know that I can confidently say I can custom design my own hats.
Watch out girls – this adventurer is going to turn heads* with this new look!
*Get it? Turn heads? Because they’re hats…
“Emily’s a genius with these little exploding boxes! The details in this design are incredible. What a gift!”
“I don’t know how I existed without blinged luggage tags for this long. Really.”
“I love how personalized I can make my little waterproof travel toiletries labels.”
“The kids get restless as they travel, and having a little bag of entertainment like this for restaurants, the plane, or the car is the perfect solution!”
“So glad Creative Fabrica is sharing Kelly and her techniques with our adventure- they’re definitely lighting up my creativity.”
“We are going to be soooo fabulous on tour with these trendy glass tumblers. And how cute is that design?!”
“Wow! I’m totally gob-smacked at how much is possible with this app, and I love that Jen shows us ways to do this that don’t require me to dust off those art skills from grade school!”
“I’ve had the Hat Press since it came out but not until Megan’s excursion did I realize how cool it was! So glad she shared this deep dive with us!”
Today was definitely an adventure! We tried resin with Betsy – many of us for the first time! Then, I thought it was back to the more familiar paper crafting but Kelsey shook it up (pun intended) with cards that shook, rattled, and rolled. Next, we all giggled to ourselves when we saw Natalie’s glow-in-the-dark t-shirts. It will be such a scream to surprise the kids during the next camping trip! And the retro in me totally tripped for Michelle’s VW Bug card, and Megan’s Polaroid Magnets. Honestly, if it wasn’t for Amy’s decorated tumbler being so cute, and drawing so much attention I might have forgotten to stay hydrated!
AND THEN! Can I tell you how much I’m enjoying the bonus excursions? I learned from Kimberly how to use Canva to create my own stickers! I can’t wait to try some custom designs. I guess “custom” could be the word of the night because then I indulged in some “me” time with Lucy as she showed me how to really “elevate” my crafts with some 3-D texture.
Dear travel journal, I’m on a roll with the crafty puns and I’m not sorry at all!
“Resin has been on my to-try list for a while, but it wasn’t until I took this adventure with Betsy that I felt confident enough to try it. But I can tell those molds are going to be addictive! In the very best way of course!”
“Postcards for an adventure is such a clever idea! And then Kelsey makes them even more of an experience with the moveable elements. I’m in love!”
“Oh, my! Natalie’s adventure was one surprise after another! I love how she took the glow-in-the-dark vinyl and did such a clever project with it!”
“Megan makes cutting wood with a Cricut simple and completely doable in this fun adventure. And the refrigerator magnets? A-door-able!”
“I admit to being bitted by the cutest love bug when I saw these cards from Michelle. I love the layered elements, but being able to add my own message really inspired me! “
“Hydrating isn’t always at the top of my to-do list when I’m obsessing over a project- but that’s changed now that I have this eye-catching tumbler to keep with me!”
“Designing stickers is so much easier than I thought it could be, and I absolutely love Kimberly’s easy-to-follow instructions on Canva. I feel like I’ll be looking into this a lot more!”
“Just thinking of how flat I’ve made my papercrafts all these years when I could have added texture so easily…sigh. Well, I’m thrilled I watched this Excursion with Lucy now!”
Mmmmm…. cake for breakfast is an excellent way to start a day of adventure! Dear travel journal, this handmade cake topper from Tara is so cute- you don’t know what you’re missing.
Oh! Except for your own companion luggage tag. Jamela showed me today how easy it is to cut leather on a Cricut, so you’ll get a buddy soon!
Speaking of buddies, I had so much fun crafting with my friends today – we made Chelly’s airplane travel page and laughed as we looked through our phones for photos to use. Of course, it took me forever to FIND my phone, good thing we decorated Debbie’s travel tote bag to keep everything together. And after that, well, let’s say I decided to decorate everything! I mean, why not when Michelle showed me how to make the cutest stickers, and I learned Screen Printing from Jennifer at last!
SO fun to wrap up day FOUR of this adventure with two deep dives- one by Natalie using the Cricut foiling tool and another by Abbi Kirsten on how to get the perfect cardstock cuts.
“Warning: This ADORABLE cake topper may create unrealistic expectations for the rest of the cake. If only I baked as well as I craft. Look at that cuteness! Next time I’ll buy the cake and save the time to craft!”
“I’m going to say it. I had no idea how easy it is to make my own leather travel accessories with a Cricut! And the best part is NO ONE would look at this and think I made that with my Cricut!”
“What a great excuse to get my photos off my phone and into a book. I love the cloud cut-outs, and the font makes this page even more memorable. “
“Debbie says this is her favorite travel accessory, and I can’t say I blame her. It’s both utilitarian AND cute. Plus, I can think of so many ways to use that design!”
“Watch me get all the jealous looks at the airport when I show off my new luggage stickers! And no one needs to know it’s a wish list of destinations and not exactly places I’ve been….. yet!”
“I want it. Literally, I would buy a t-shirt like this in a hot minute if I could find it in a store. So excited that Jennifer showed me how to make them!”
“Oooh… I can’t wait to use the foiling tool now that I understand it so much better. Sometimes it just takes a confident teacher to help us over the mental hurdles and give us that little push to just try it!”
“This adventure makes cutting cardstock LESS of an adventure in all the best ways! With Abbi’s pro hacks, I feel much more confident that I’ll get consistently successful cuts!”
Dear journal, what a way to end the Cricut Crafting Adventure! First, I made a shiny pretty shirt for me using Jen’s methods- every girl needs a little adventure glam, right? Then, adventuring with Tracy, we created the cutest little keepsakes box that I can’t wait to fill!
Next, we made super bright beach t-shirts with Gina that will be perfect for our next family get-together. And Crystal’s idea about using print then cut to make photos was inspired! Of course, with everything coming to an end, Brandi’s farewell card seemed appropriate, and Alice’s take-along felt pennant craft will be the perfect thing to keep my hands busy on the way home.
Thank goodness for one last excursion! I loved Naomi’s glass etching excursion and am already planning on making gifts using this technique!
“Hmm… does my blinged luggage tag make this shirt look shiny? Or is it the RHINESTONES?! I had no idea how easy it was to climb this mountain until Jen led me up to the summit!”
“Maybe we all have a little Pandora in us because I don’t regret opening this box at all. The custom paper inside- such a cute surprise!”
“One might think I made these to be cute, but really it makes it SO easy to spot everyone on the beach. It’s so much easier to justify purchasing blank t-shirts in bulk when I can prove it’s a security measure! And if there are a few extras… “
“We LOVE getting autographs and now have the perfect place to put them.”
“Farewell made cute is what we’d call this mini RV card.”
“What a way to wrap up a fabulous adventure- with a project to take on the go!”
“Glass etching with a Cricut? I admit it looks harder than it is, especially once Naomi Garcia shows how simple it can be in this excursion!”
Amy and I (Jen) hope you’re enjoying the Cricut Crafting Adventure so far! We’d love to see you in our Traveler’s Facebook Group!
