Do you want more detailed videos on using our SVGs and JPGs on your cutting machine? How about a printable workbook and cut setting guides for easy reference? If so, then you will love our new Crafter’s Guide to Cutting Machines skill courses: A Crafter’s Guide to the Cricut Maker and A Crafter’s Guide to the Silhouette Cameo.
Want more info on the Crafter’s Guide to Cutting Machines skill course? Here’s how it works:
There are two skill courses, each one covering the two most popular cutting machines. Both courses are broken down into three parts:
Part 1. Working with the Cricut or Silhouette machine software
Part 2. Cutting the materials with a rotary and fine-point blade
Part 3. Assembling the six projects
We love to make learning new skills fun, so crafting beautiful projects was a must for this course.
For our launch party finale, we will do a live drawing to give away ten total prizes for crafters who finish all six projects and post them in a photo on our Crafters platform by March 31st at 11:00am PST.
We will be cutting the materials and assembling these Farmer’s Market themed projects:
- Monogrammed tumblers with decal vinyl
- “Farm to Table” HTV design for denim tote bag
- Cardstock treat box with print then cut labels
- Felt sunglasses case with an HTV monogram
- Frosted paper Lewisia flowers
- Crepe paper bomb peony
You can use the supplies you have on hand for each project. Or you can use the list below for the exact materials and tools used in the videos. You can also download a printable checklist below.

Is there a specific time for the Launch Party! Thanks and all my supplies are organized!
We are opening the classes for each section on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 6am Pacific time. These are all pre-recorded so you can watch anytime after they are released.
Just a quick question — your cutting machine class is going to be as awesome as all your classes and projects, I know! If I don’t have quite the exact colors of vinyl or the exact products to decorate, do my projects still count for the prize drawing? Thanks!
Yes! I attempted to emphasize in the post that you can use the materials you have on hand. I like sustainable crafting. lol 😉
Really needing this class – so excited! Thanks Lia and team!
Good to hear! We will have a lot of fun mixing learning with crafting. 😉
This sounds great! Will we be able to watch this later? I have shoulder surgery on the 16th and will not be able to do anything like this for a month or so. Bad timing for me but a great opportunity for others to gain more skills using their cutting machine.
Yes, this class will be available after our launch party week. Good luck with the surgery.
I would like to sign up for the Cricut course, but work full time and probably need to access the content on the weekends. Is that possible? Once I sign up are the videos available ‘on demand’? Thanks!
As a member, you have immediate access to the classes, no need to sign up. This class will be available to you beyond the launch week.
I only got my cricut maker over the summer just because I have a brother scan n cut but no one offers anything using it that I have found I don’t understand y since it’s a cutting machine an it’s built in scanner feature is awesome to have an it’s lcd screen so u can use it with or without a computer or device makes it easier to use there’s so many things I would love to learn with it but as I said everyone always gives instructions using the cricut
Yes, I think the Cricut is a popular crafting machine. I will keep my eyes out for someone who teaches Brother.
So, I have the Air Explorer 3. Will it not work??
You can take the class and participate in the fine-point blade projects. The rotary blade is used for the crepe paper and felt project and those can be cut by hand. I will include the PDF templates for those.
Update: you get the 404 message from the embedded links, but if you go directly to Felt Paper Scissors and do a search, it comes up just fine!
Yes, the link might have been broken on the site, but I think it should work now.
I am still getting the 404message when I try and order the Farmers Market pack
I just double-checked and it seems to be working now.
Will you offer it again later because I am in vacation until beginning of April
This will be available for you as a member throughout the year.
I think there’s a problem with the Farmer’s Market Pack link…I got the dreaded 404 message
Thanks — it’s fixed now!
I would like to join
Yes! As a member, you have full access the week we release the course. See you then!
Love my Cricut machine, but it definitely has a learning curve. I’ve made over 300 projects with my Cricut Maker (many of them with Lia Griffith patterns), but I still want to take this course as I may learn something new. PLUS, I am excited to see what the projects are.
I love it! Cricut has really changed my life. You can see a sneak peek of the project in the photo above. Super fun set of crafts!
Awesome! I just upgraded my Cricut from the Air Explore to the Maker.
You are going to LOVE it! See you in class. 😉
