First, it’s going to be FUN. But, let me tell you why I wanted to be a part of this. You know I’m a HUGE champion of helping others gain confidence with their Cricut (or any cutting machine for that matter) and that aligns with the mission of this event.

The Cricut Craftfest is not just another virtual event – it’s THE event if you are a crafter who owns a Cricut! Seriously, I fangirled when I saw the speaker list. I already have my list of workshops I’ll be watching!

  • All. The. Free. Content. – Each day there will be up to 9 full workshops from different craters covering a ton of different Cricut-related projects. From vinyl, iron-on, infusible ink, and cardstock, to digital courses to help you master Design Space and create your own files – this is the place to be. Did I mention it’s FREE?
  • Detailed Project Tutorials – As much as I love packing my YouTube videos with projects, it doesn’t give me as much time as I’d like to fully dive into instruction and explanation. Not here! We’re spending 30 minutes together and I’ll walk you step-by-step through my project from buying materials all the way through to finishing it for the elements outside.
  • Full Days of Inspiration – The workshops for each summit day will go live at 9:00 a.m. EST each day – and you’ll have 24 hours to watch them and download free SVGs/templates that correspond with those projects.
  • Connect with Other Crafters You will get to connect with a fun community of crafters from all walks of life, ages, and skill levels via the attendee Facebook group! Ask questions about the workshops, and Cricut crafting in general, connect with speakers, and show off your completed projects!
  • Geared Towards All Skill Levels – Created with beginners in mind, as well as experienced Cricut crafters, too! There will be something for everyone. I know I’ll be attending so many workshops! If you are new to Cricut, we’ve got your back and can help you understand everything from the basics to more advanced concepts. Enjoy all the projects and inspiring new ideas that will grow your creativity to a new and exciting level.
  • Did I mention it’s FREE?! You can attend the summit absolutely free, but you can choose to grab the Holiday Cricut Craftfest VIP-Access Pass at any time. Here’s just a few of the 50+ projects that will be featured in this year’s event!


The 2023 Holiday Cricut Craftfest will run from October 2 – 6th – grab your free ticket here.


It’s a FREE virtual event happening October 2 – 6th with 50+ inspiring Cricut projects taught by experts for all skill levels!

You can access up to 10 classes per day in a 24-hour on-demand format. If that seems like a lot to cram into five days (I feel you), you can grab the VIP Access Pass that will give you instant and LIFETIME access to all of the videos so you can either go back and re-watch or take your time to make it through everything on your own schedule.

Plus templates/cut files to recreate the projects, video transcripts, and TONS of Cricut bonuses (valued at over $500!) from the 50+ speakers! So if you can’t wait and want to dive in now – the VIP Pass is for you!

Because you’re my craft buddy, you can get the pass at the special early bird rate pre-event, but once it starts the price goes up. So if this sounds good to you, I’d grab it now so you don’t miss the special pricing!


My class on how to create this fun wood tray using stenciling on Tuesday, October 3rd (Day 2). And I’ll walk you through SLOWLY step-by-step so you can make yours for any season you’d like.

I’m so honored to be teaching alongside some AMAZING Cricut creators and I know you’ll love them too! Grab your free ticket here – and I’ll see you there!
