Hey hey! I'm Cori and I'm the creative mind behind the website and digital shop Hey, Let's Make Stuff. I love inspiring people to make their lives more fun with Cricut crafts, SVG downloads, and simple DIY tutorials.

You may have seen my Cricut work on the Cricut Inspiration blog, for the craft retailer JOANN, and for digital companies like and I have also had the privilege of teaching at the Cricut Mountain Make-a-Thon in Salt Lake City.

You’ll also find my debut paper-crafting book, Paper Party, in craft stores and on Amazon, and my second cutting machine craft book is scheduled for release in 2020!

When I'm not creating, I love traveling, sarcasm, strong coffee, and spending quality time with my husband, adorable twin boys, and seriously enormous dog in beautiful Northern California. Let's learn the Cricut together!
