I'm thinking of taking a Kerri Bradford class. Wondering if the Getting to know you is the best class for me as I have had my Cameo for several months now and feel pretty good with the basic functions. Will this be too basic and should I start with a different one?

I just took the Getting to Know you class. I really needed a basic beginner class. Some things it covers are screen buttons/functions, setting up your library from the online store and outside sources, preferences, cutting, compound paths, fonts, text tools. There are some lessons to do, including making a card with text in a circle and making a mini book. I have done all the lessons except making the mini book, which probably has other tasks I can learn from.

I think it is very helpful for beginners, but for someone more experienced it might not be a good choice. Her teaching style is good and the lessons are easy to understand. I"m happy I took the class.

I really dove in and used my cameo quite a bit before her classes were available, but I still learned a great deal from the beginners class. You also get a lot of free cutting files from her so it's a win-win!

I felt i was pretty experienced prior to taking Kerri's "Getting to Know you" class, and I was quite impressed with what I learned. Kerri has a lovely speaking voice, and a casual, yet professional teaching style. The class was well organized and each lesson built on the prior one.
Also, it's forever access, includes cut files, and no hunting around youtube for the information. I think it's worth every penny, and then some. I took her follow up class as well. Great investment, and it helps me get the most from my Cameo!

(hey, maybe i can get a commission for being such a good salesperson! )

I felt somewhat comfortable with the software and I still took both of the classes. I learned a TON of stuff and shortcuts that I didn't know about. Unless you know and are comfortable with what every single button does in the software, I would take this class. There were a lot of AHA moments for me and it just opened up so much more that I can now do. The first one was so helpful. I actually preferred that class to the second one.

I had been working with the software since it was introduced but still got a lot of good info from the first class. Can't wait to take her 3rd class coming up!
