Holiday Cricut Craftfest 2023
Something I’ve become more and more passionate about over the last few years is helping creatives learn to confidently craft with their Cricut machines. And through that journey, I’ve found that I love helping fellow crafters do the same, which is why I have teamed up with 36 other talented Cricut pros to bring you the Cricut Craftfest summit! The Holiday Cricut Craftfest summit is a free 5-day event to help you craft your way to confidence with 50+ inspiring Cricut projects for all skill levels!
You can learn all the exciting details about the summit over here, but here is a quick overview:
- The summit will run from October 2nd – 6th.
- Each day will be packed with talented speakers who are ready to help you confidently craft with your Cricut machine.
- We’ve got a pop-up Facebook group where you’ll find fellow Cricut besties, ask the speakers questions, and whatever else we come up with!
You can attend the summit absolutely free, but you can choose to grab the Holiday Cricut Craftfest All-Access Pass at any time.
The Holiday Cricut Craftfest All-Access Pass will give you lifetime access to the summit (meaning you get all the videos for life), plus project templates, video transcripts, and over $500 worth of exclusive Cricut bonuses from the speakers!
The All-Access Pass is currently being offered at a special price, and it will disappear for good once the summit is over, so start thinking about it now!

What Cricut Accessories Do I Need?
Cricut Essentials make putting the pieces together a joy. From tweezers that handle delicate parts to Cricut EasyPress for foolproof iron-on, every Essential makes a great project even greater, every step of the way. These are the Cricut Tools & Accessories I recommend for the serious crafter:
Cricut Easy Press
I highly recommend purchasing the Cricut Easy Press if you plan to do any iron-on or heat-transfer projects. The Cricut Easy Press will make your Cricut DIYs so much easier! The Cricut Easy Press comes in 3 different sizes, however, I own the 9 x 9 and it’s the perfect size for most projects.
Cricut Easy Press Mat
If you purchase the Cricut Easy Press, don’t forget to get the coordinating Easy Press Mat, which will protect your surfaces and projects from burning. Alternatively, you can use a folded towel, however, the mat is sleek and easier to store in the craft room 😉
Cricut Bright Pad
The lightweight, low-profile Cricut BrightPad makes crafting easier while reducing eye strain. It illuminates fine lines for tracing, cut lines for weeding, and more.
Cricut Cutting Mats
I suggest having a variety of cutting mats that are customized to match the weight of commonly used crafting materials. With three different mats specifically designed to work with different weights of materials, you can ensure success in all your projects.
Cricut Tool Set
You will thank me later for telling you to just get the Cricut Tool Set instead of buying each tool individually! The tools included in the Cricut toolset are all helpful when using your Cricut machine.
My favorite non-Cricut brand materials
You can find other brand vinyl, iron-on, contact paper, and more outside of Cricut.com. A few of my favorites are:
- Oracal 651 Permanent Vinyl (find it here or at your local craft store)
- Siser HTV
- Dollar Tree clear contact paper (or shelf liner)
- Various fat-quarter fabrics at Walmart
- Felt sheets at local craft stores
Learning how to use your Cricut is really easy and fun once you get the hang of it. If you don’t have a Cricut Access Membership, I highly recommend it. I’ve had a Cricut Access Membership for years and it’s definitely worth the cost for all the benefits!

How To Choose a Cricut Machine
I bought my first Cricut machine in 2013… it was called the Cricut mini and was one of the first Cricut machines that didn’t have a keyboard. It was a great machine but as soon as Cricut released the Cricut Explore machine in 2014, I quickly bought it. A year later Cricut released the Cricut Explore Air and I bought that too. Then in 2017, Cricut released the Cricut Maker Machine and of course I bought it too. So you can say I’m pretty experienced with Cricut machines and have in-depth knowledge about using Cricut and various Cricut projects.

32 Easy Cricut Projects for Beginners
I love learning about new Cricut projects and Cricut Explore Air 2 Projects, but some Cricut crafts seem more advanced than others.

Most of the projects featured in this post can be made using a Cricut Explore Air and Cricut Explore Air 2, but some of these beginner projects require a Cricut Maker Machine (Cricut beginner projects using fabric).

How To Save Money on Cricut Supplies
I love finding a good deal on Cricut vinyl craft supplies and I tend to stock up on Cricut craft supplies during sales (Cricut.com has the best Black Friday sale!) but Cricut supplies can be expensive! One question I’m frequently asked is where can I buy Cricut supplies? Well, not only will I share where you can buy Cricut supplies, but where to find discount Cricut supplies! My favorite store to find Cricut supplies cheap is the Dollar Store.
