Cutting Edge Crafters

Master Your Cricut and Unlock Creative Freedom!

You have finally found the key to conquer your Cricut without frustration or overwhelm!

Are you tired of searching every corner of the internet to find the help you need to use your Cricut machine?

Do you feel lost? Stuck on projects? Overwhelmed? Frustrated?

When you purchased your Cricut you were likely crazy excited to get started. But when you started looking at the software and machine as a beginner, that excitement probably gave way pretty quickly to feeling overwhelmed, a little frustrated (or a lot), and a series of mounting questions.    

Ever wonder...  

  • What kind of crafts can I do with my Cricut? Papercrafts, vinyl, fabric, wood, engraving, etc?
  • How do I use Design Space? What is Print and cut, weld, attach, draw, score, pattern fills, engraving, etc?
  • How can I create my own designs to customize projects and build signature crafts?   

Are you tired of...  

  • Feeling lost inside of Design Space?  
  • Being overwhelmed by too much info? 
  • Wasting expensive materials by trial and error?  
  • Wish you could design your own images instead of always spending money on files for each of your projects?  
  • Wondering what your craft potential could be if you took the time to understand it all? 
  • Feeling scared to start a project because you feel like your always stumbling through it and your frustration falls prey to giving up?  

Introducing Cutting Edge Crafters Academy!

Cutting Edge Crafter's is the proven Cricut and craft skill-building system that GUARANTEES to transform you into a confident Cricut master and custom craft designer. 


Wouldn't it be amazing if you felt completely confident when you sit down to craft with your Cricut?!

"Just use YouTube and Google to learn your Cricut, you'll be fine - but be prepared for lots of mistakes and wasted materials."

Don’t make the mistake of trying to learn while you craft - you will likely end up overwhelmed. Learning your tools and software (Design Space) first BEFORE jumping into projects will save you loads of frustration, wasted time, and materials.

"Cricuts are best for vinyl or paper projects - just stick with those to keep it easy and don't bother with the rest."

Cricut machines can cut hundreds of materials! One of the best ways to master your Cricut and build your craft skills is to practice new projects with an array of materials and build your Cricut knowledge with a series of progressive skills. 

❌ "You will need to pay a monthly subscription or purchase individual SVG cut files to create your projects."

Designing for yourself will enable you to customize ANYTHING to your exact vision without settling. You can learn how to use FREE open-source programs like Inkscape to design both simple and advanced images! As well as convert personal images!

Crafter's Just Like You with Real Results!

You could probably manage to eventually figure out your Cricut and Design Space software on your own, but you will spend 10x more EFFORT, TIME, AND MONEY getting there, not to mention the constant roadblock of feeling overwhelmed.  

Did you buy a Cricut to make amazing personalized handcrafted projects? 

But you can’t make one-of-a-kind crafts if you don’t know your equipment. No matter what you are envisioning, you want to be sure of how to get from point A to point B during any project.  

Starting at step one, MASTER, which means learning equipment and properly setting up your machine is essential to your confidence and success!  

After you feel confident with your equipment, your next move needs to be to learn how to dominate the Design Space interface.

This is where many crafters either get Cricut paralysis or start a craft project right away and stumble around inside of Design Space confused and lost.   As a result, this usually leads to a lot of Googling for answers, which sometimes helps and other times increases the frustration and confusion.  

This is where you will create a bulletproof foundation inside of Design Space BEFORE jumping into projects, which will save you loads of wasted time and materials! 

Everything from changing line types, welding text, curving text, layers images, understanding Design Space terms, fonts, pens, cut screen setting, and more are taught so you will never again wonder what a function inside of Design Space does!  

One of the best ways to master your Cricut and build your craft skills is to practice new activities through a series of graduating skills.  

I will introduce you to the most sought-after materials and how to use them with your Cricut through a series of craft exercises that will have you soaring with crafty confidence in no time.  

What’s better? The next time you see an image of something you want to create yourself, you will feel confident in the steps to make it! 

Whether you are a teacher who has 20 some things to make for your students, a Mom crafting for little ones, a hobbyist who shares their crafts with family and friends, or a craft business owner who receives custom requests; everyone needs to build their creative skills through a variety of craft exercise projects.   


Learning how to design your own custom images for crafting will give you more creative freedom than 90% of fellow crafters out there.  

Designing craft files for yourself will enable you to customize ANYTHING to your exact vision without settling.  

Once you understand the beginner-friendly graphic software, which I walk you through step by step, it can be as easy as sitting down, opening your laptop, drawing something unique and personalized to your creative style! 

Don't worry! Traditional artist talents are NOT required to be successful at creating your SVG images.

The result? You will be able to save a lot of money because you are not always relying on the file designs of others, whether this be paying for them or taking the time to search for freebies.

I have expanded my projects like never before 

Jackie says... "Learning new craft skills was so fun. I have expanded my projects like never before. I even have friends and family asking me to make things all the time and I love it! I think I may even start a small business soon!" 

I love her style of teaching

Nathalie says... "I love her style of teaching. So many tutorials out there tell you about an important function but don’t SHOW you how to use it with real hands on projects."

I now have the skills to create anything I can imagine!

Liz says... "To be completely honest, I was convinced I was not going to be able to design my own SVG files. To my surprise it was way easier then I thought and now I have the skills to create anything I can imagine!"

A note from Abbi

“If you feel anything less than excited when you sit down to craft with your Cricut then you probably have not taken the time to master the core concepts that make it worth owning. Don’t throw away the money you spent on the machine or the creativity waiting for you!”  

Hey there! I'm Abbi - they call me the Cricut Fairy!

I used to be just like you...

We all wish that we ALREADY had the knowledge and knew how to use our Cricut and draw our own craft files from day one – after all, we are so excited to get started. But the only way to get there is to take a pause here today and resolve to take the proper instruction that will get us where we want to be.  

The truth is all those crafters out there who look like they are zipping through craft after craft are only doing this because they are 100% confident in their equipment and know how to make exactly what they need for themselves without question during the process.  

Those crafters took the time to learn. 

I don’t want you to throw away the money you spent on your Cricut or waste expensive materials through trial and error. And I don’t want you to feel overwhelmed and frustrated.  

Instead I want you to thank yourself for the decision you made today. Because in as little as 30 days from now you could be doing things you didn’t think are possible at this moment in time!  

Q: Can I use my iPhone or iPad for this course?  

A: No, unfortunately, this course requires a basic laptop or desktop computer. Please do NOT purchase this course if you do not own or plan to own a computer.  

Q: Which Cricut machine will this course work with?  

A: Cutting Edge Crafters is compatible with the Explore Air, Explore Air 2, Explore 3, Maker, Maker 3, and the Joy machine!

A: Nope! The software I use to teach you how to design your own SVG cut files is completely FREE and you will have access to it inside the program!

Q: How long do I have access to the course?  

A: FOREVER! You will always have access to your course materials. And if there are ever any major updates with Cricut Design Space I will also update the course, so you can learn the new adjustments!

Q: What if I can't draw?  

A: Neither can I! There is a different kind of magic that happens when creating images on a computer because the technology uses points and shapes not free lines to create designs. You do not need to be a traditional artist to learn how to successfully create your SVG files!

Q: Do I need an internet connection?  

A: Yes, an internet connection will be required to access the free Design Space software online.  

Q: I am somewhat familiar with my Cricut. Will this course still have value to me?

A: YES! You can break up the cost over 5-monthly payments of $59 or 3-monthly payments of $94 each or pay in full one time at $247. Payments will be taken on the same day each month, starting with your first payment date. 

Q: What is the refund policy?  

A: We have a 30-day refund policy. If you honestly learned nothing new inside this course and can show me you put the work in with 5 projects within 30 days I will refund your money in full.
