This Saturday there was a Creative Memories scrapbooking event in Colorado. Since Cricut has partnered with Creative Memories for 3 exclusive cartridges they sent out a couple reps for the event. Some of my friends and I got to volunteer for the day and teach basic make and take classes, or demo machines.
The Provo Craft reps were Chrisy and Alisa. Christy is on the left side of the photo, and Alisa on the right :) They were SO sweet. How fun to get the chance to get to meet them. The shirts we are wearing were designed by Jill - one of my local friends in the photo. If you happen to be a Cricut messageboard person you may know her as the Monogram Mom. I am one of the gals in the front - the scary pale one! *LOL*
I spent the day demoing the machines. I answered a lot of questions and showed people how to use all the different feature keys. It was such a fun experience! We weren't officially "paid" and were considered volunteers, but we did get some nice goodies that we were super excited about :)
I will say it was interesting for me to learn what people are confused about on their machines and what they needed the most help with. I did get to answer some Gypsy questions as well, but the majority of the day was about the great features of the Expression machine :)
I think I might do a Cricut basics video series based on what I've learned about what people need to know. I know many of my readers are more experienced, but I figure once it's completed I can have it easily accessible on a page as a whole series of tutorials to help someone who is new. I may consider doing a basic Gypsy series as well - and maybe a more advanced Gypsy series if people request it. If you have any thoughts or requests regarding those video series let me know!
Thanks Provo Craft for the amazing experience! This is my second time meeting official Provo Craft employees and I must say all 3 that I've met have been so much FUN!!!!
