Pause, rewind, and watch as many times as you need.  While you learn, follow along and take notes in your Beginner Cricut Guide, which is included as a download in the course.  When you have finished the tutorials, learn how to make six projects with five different materials.

Why did I create this course?

When I opened my first Cricut machine, I was so excited to make something new. I spent HOURS trying to find someone to show me how to use it only to get frustrated when I couldn't find what I needed. 

I know you have been there!

These classes are designed to help you learn how to use your machine in simple, easy-to-watch videos.  I want you to be able to dust off that machine and make something you love.

Meet the instructor

Hello & Welcome!

I am Miss. Carrie and I enjoy days filled with faith, family, LOTS of coffee and crafts. I believe that life is complicated enough, and crafting needs to be simple.

In 2012, I began teaching my first Cricut classes using Craftroom, cartridges, and a room full of people wanting to learn.  As an instructor, I was one of the first beta testers of Cricut Design Space in 2013 and have continued to teach people how to use the program through all the updates and changes. 

With a background in teaching and technology, I enjoy showing people how to use their machines to make something they love.  I keep it simple, easy-to-follow and to the point.  I can't wait to see what you create!
