Learn to use the Cricut Maker—Cricut’s newest and most advanced electronic cutting machine that can help you make amazing and professional DIY, sewing, and design projects. It’s connected with the Cricut Design Space, an online program that allows you to design almost any DIY or craft project you can imagine! Sewing projects, iron-on decals for t-shirts, paper party decorations, leather jewelry, balsa wood puzzles, and vinyl for home decor projects are just the beginning.
I’ve had a Cricut Explore for more than four years (check out my Cricut Explore Resources Page to learn more), but I just recently got the newest machine in the Cricut lineup, the Cricut Maker. Already I am in love with this new machine, so I’m writing up tutorials and how-tos as I go to share with you! On this page you will find all sorts of resources for you to learn to use the Cricut Maker, as well as tons of projects you can create at home!
