Welcome to Cricut Basics!

Get ready to stop being overwhelmed and start creating

Whether you're afraid to take your Cricut Explore or Maker out of the box or you want to brush up on the basics, this FREE online course is for you! I know the Cricut can be intimidating, but with Cricut Basics, we can do this together!

This course is not directly affiliated with Cricut—it's brought to you by Cricut blogger Cori George of Hey, Let's Make Stuff!

Here's what we'll cover

  • All About Your Cricut

    We'll get your Cricut Explore or Maker out of the box and up and running—and then learn about the machine, tools, materials, and extras.

  • Cricut Design Space

    Next, we'll cover the panels and toolbars in Cricut Design Space so can create projects from scratch, as well as upload outside files.

  • Make a Project

    Finally we'll create a project, from start to finish, using everything we've learned in the class. You'll walk away confident in using your machine!
