The best way to learn is with REAL experience!

You can read dozens of blog posts and watch countless YouTube videos—but if you're not actually MAKING things with your Cricut, you're never going to learn to actually use it!

The Cricut Projects & Tutorials module is designed to help you get your hands dirty with projects specifically designed to teach you key elements of using your Cricut Explore or Maker.

After this course you'll...

  • Gain Hands-On Experience

    Actually MAKE projects using your Cricut, using these easy-to-follow tutorials, including Cricut Design Space screenshots and step-by-step assembly photos.

  • Create Awesome Projects

    There's nothing more encouraging (and fun!) than being able to successfully make a project, start to finish. This course will help you do that!

  • Build Confidence

    The more you use your machine, the more confident you'll be in trying new tools and materials. You'll be fearless, tackling any project you can dream up!

Cori George

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!
