Is this you?

  • You love your Cricut but sometimes want to throw it out of the window!
  • No matter how hard you try, you can't make or design exactly what you want!
  • You've learned odds and ends from YouTube, but then: you get stuck and lose motivation!
  • You wish someone would take you by the hand and guide you through each step in order, and that you wish you had a way to ask questions when you need to

Imagine what you'll feel like when...

You’ve finally mastered your Cricut and finally can make anything you want with it!

Imagine what you’re going to feel like once you’ve mastered Design Space, figured out Inkscape (and/or Illustrator!), know all of the practical techniques to make no end of exciting new projects and can craft with complete confidence!

  • Maybe you want to create unique, customised designs…to make, share or sell?

  • You can make designs offline - so Design Space downtime is a mere hiccup rather than a complete disaster!

  • Your Cricut machine is the wise investment you always knew it was!

But…you’ve heard about a Cricut ‘learning curve’ and you’re afraid to even start. You’re asking yourself questions like…

  • How do I even start with designing my own stuff?
  • I’m not even comfortable with Design Space, how could I ever use Inkscape or Illustrator?!

  • I’m not a techie, or an artist, can I really ever learn how to make original designs?

  • This seems really hard…I don’t have a plan to follow

    I know, there can be a lot of questions and confusion if you’re new to the Cricut - whether you’ve only worked within Design Space or have dabbled with Inkscape or Illustrator. If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes, get off track, and give in before you get anywhere…with all of your great ideas unrealised. Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all!

    That’s why I’ve created my step-by-step course, Cutting Machine Magic.

That’s why I’ve created my step-by-step course, Cutting Machine Magic.

I sometimes have a hard time following Youtube videos.  I have tried a couple Inkscape ones before and concluded it was too difficult.  But the way you show it, I’m getting it…you have unlocked a whole new world for me with my Cricut.

— Karen E

Natalie is one of the best teachers I’ve ever run across. Her tutorials are well thought out and put together, with steps that are easily followed. If it wasn’t for this course my cricut would be sitting in its box!

You can do this course from home, from anywhere in the world, and on your schedule

There are no 'in person' meetings, no travel is required, and all classes are recorded so you don't have to log in live at any particular time, You can complete this - and gain Cricut mastery - on your own schedule, from anywhere you can access Design Space and Illustrator or Inkscape!

You can complete the course lessons from the comfort of your couch or kitchen table, as long as you have an Internet connection!

The entire program is completely digital so you can access it from anywhere through our private course portal. And you'll never miss a beat: you can go at your own pace and do the lessons on your schedule.

How long does it take to learn?

How long does it take to learn?

The honest answer is, your results will depend on you and your current situation. Most of our students, if they put aside the time required, are able to complete the course and get comfortable with the software in five weeks - but there are enough projects (especially when you add your new skills to the equation!) to keep you going far beyond that!

Others might take a few extra months to get the hang of it. There is no rush and no right or wrong amount of time, because you have lifetime access to the program and all future updates…not to mention support from me! Remember, though, this isn't a "quick fix" by any means.

We recommend you set aside 2-4 hours per week to go through the program and implement the assignments.

There has never been a better time to fulfil your creative potential…and start making your Cricut earn its keep!

There’s never been a better time to get your Cricut working for you! Why not start today instead of waiting another 6 months to a year for enrolment to open again?

Starting now will allow you to:

  • Fully unlock the potential of your amazing cutting machine

  • Express yourself creatively and show off your talents

  • Share your skills with your friends or family

  • Get ahead of your crafting competitors by creating new and original projects

  • Maybe gain a bit of financial freedom and independence selling your crafts and even your files

If you don’t do it now, you’ll still be in the same position you are now. Six months from now and you’ll wish that you’d started today!

How do I know if I am ready to take this course?

You are ready to take this course if:

  • You’d like to be able to make anything you want with your Cricut machine

  • You’re ready to learn how to design, make and customise exciting stuff

  • You are excited by the possibilities of your cutting machine and what it can do

You are NOT ready to take this course if:

  • You are unwilling to learn new skills and try new techniques

  • You don’t have access to either a desktop o laptop PC or Mac

  • You’re happy making the same designs as everyone else

It’s about more than creating amazing projects…

Though creating amazing projects is noble and worthwhile in itself, of course!

In Cutting Machine Magic, you will learn skills that will last you a lifetime - skills that will not only unlock the full potential of your Cricut machine, but will allow you to fulfil your own creative potential. Let your creativity soar!

These are skills that you can share with your friends and family - or skills that you use to make projects and files to make impressive items for craft fairs or files for an onlibe business. They could help you take a huge step towards getting financial freedom and doing what you want to for a living.

You've got two choices...

You can keep trying to figure out this stuff on your own, hacking away in Design Space and watching Youtube videos hoping that some of the knowledge will ‘stick’ and that Inkscape and Illustrator will suddenly make sense…


Or you can get my step-by-step system and start making orderly progress immediately!

Think about where you want to be six months from now. Heck, think about where you want to be one month from now!

Do you have a plan to get there?


But...I don’t have enough time!

You don't need to spend huge swathes of time on this - the key is in learning the essential techniques quickly and in the right order so it's EASY and EFFORTLESS to create your first designs. From there, you'll be eager to build on this strong foundation and get to the next step!

The main question you really have time to waste trawling the internet every time you get stuck, in the hope you'll find the right answer?

I'm not tech-savvy

There's so much technology and information available now that it'd be impossible for *anyone* to get on top of it! What's necessary is not to be tech-savvy but focused - the greatest thing you'll learn from this course is to laser-focus in on the  tech that's useful to you as you create - not the parts of the software that are geared towards people doing graphic design

 I'm not artistic

I really believe that everyone has creative ability, waiting to be unlocked - and I also think that the fact you're doing this at all suggests that you - more than most - do want to create and expand your craft skills! You just need a few basic techniques to  In which case it's really an issue of:

I don’t feel confident in myself

I hear you - we all feel a bit overwhelmed when encountering a new skill, especially one that encourages to develop ourselves ...but you'll get step-by-step guidance at every level - and I'm here to support you all along your journey! There's no rush - you have lifetime access so you can take things at your own pace.

Natalie’s easy-to-follow instructions showed me how make svg files easily. I now feel I can create any design I want.

Natalie takes you through each step with loads of examples. I now feel fully confident in creating my own svgs.

What this would cost

  • An evening class in Adobe Illustrator would cost around $300
  • Inkscape courses are rare and very expensive - and you won’t find a course teaching both Inkscape and Illustrator!

  • The files alone in this course (though some are exclusive) are sold separately for $200+

  • When clients hire me privately to design custom SVGs, I start from $300 for basic designs

  • With Cutting Machine Magic, and you get to suggest the files you want to see, and you get to see how I make them. Plus, when I work for a client individually, I don’t teach them how to do what I do

  • You get to look behind the curtain. Completing this course gives you the confidence and education to design and craft like a pro!

Total value: $1000+ - but you can enrol today for just one payment of $97 - $100 off the regular price!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • FAQ: Can I do this course on a phone or tablet device?

No - although you can watch the lessons on an iPhone or iPad, neither Inkscape or Illustrator are available for these devices. You really need a desktop or a laptop, whether PC or Mac.

  • FAQ: I’ve got a Silhouette/Brother machine - will this course be helpful to me?

As Cricut Design Space doesn’t offer quite as many options as Silhouette Studio, I started with Cricut and so each module begins with ‘this is how you can do x in Cricut Design Space’ before moving to ‘Here’s how you do x in Inkscape or Illustrator.’ The Inkscape/Illustrator stuff will still be useful to you if you have a Silhouette or Brother machine - and if you’re in this course you’ll automatically have access to the Silhouette version I’m working on when I release it. However - you might just want to hold off for a while.

  • What software do I need?

This course shows you how to use BOTH Inkscape and Illustrator (along with Design Space, of course!). Both have their pros and cons - and each has features that aren’t available in the other. I’ll give you enough info to use both confidently. Illustrator is my fave, but I still recommend that you download Inkscape (it’s free, and certain tasks are easier in there!). If you want to try Illustrator then you can get the most out of it with a free trial once you’re used to the basic principles in this course.

  • When does the course begin and end?

When you enrol you’ll immediately have access to the foundation module and module 1 and you’ll be able to dive straight in! The remaining four modules will be released weekly after that. Though you’ll have access to all of the courses by week five, there really is no rush or deadline - you’ll continue to have access to the course and its materials, so you can work at your own pace.

  • For how long do I have access to the course material?

How does lifetime access sound? As long as this course exists, you will be able to sign in and get all of the updates - and the community support

  • What is the time commitment per week?

We recommend that if you put two-four hours per week aside for the video lessons in Inkscape and Illustrator, you should be familiar in both (or either, if you prefer!) by the end of the five weeks of modules. However it will be different for everybody - and really, the point of this course is that there are enough great projects to keep you going far beyond that!

  • Are there any prerequisites?

You’ll need access to one of the newer-generation cutting machines - that is the Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker, or the Silhouette Cameo or Curio. Older machines with cartridges, or machines that used Cricut craft room are not suitable. For some (but not all) of the lessons you may need a printer, or different blades, and a scoring stylus is highly recommended for the pop-up card masterclass (module 4). You’ll also need a desktop or laptop computer with either Inkscape (which is free) or Illustrator (part of Adobe’s Creative Suite subscription). Inkscape and Illustrator do not have full versions for iPad or iPhone, so although you’d be able to watch the Cutting Machine Magic lessons and download the files on these devices, you wouldn’t be able to learn the software on them.

  • Are there any other material or equipment costs besides the enrollment cost of the course?

Aside from your Cricut Maker and the computer or iPad you run it from, you'll also need access to either Illustrator or Inkscape - as well as the relevant materials to make the projects designed. Most of these are inexpensive and easy to find

  • Do I get support, community or 101 access to you?

You will get access to our Facebook group which is currently a manageable size, meaning I can reply swiftly to any questions - and even design svgs at your suggestion, currently!

  • What is the refund policy?

We have a 100% risk-free guarantee: you can try Cutting Machine Magic for 30 days, and if you aren't satisfied, just ask us for a full refund by before the time elapses).

  • What is the investment?

  • You can join Cutting Machine Magic for a one-off payment of $97 (that’s with $100 off the normal price - this is a limited time offer for today only!)


Hello! I’m Natalie and I love crafting!

I’ve made everything from crocheted royals for the BBC homepage to huge mascot heads for marathon runners: but the discovery of the Cricut Maker has transformed everything!

I realised that to get the most out of the machine, I'd have to design my own files. My Illustrator expertise enabled me to do this -  and I knew so many more people could benefit from it.

I created this course because I believe anyone can create their own designs with the right guidance and support.  So let's get started - I’m excited to see what you create in the course!

Working with Natalie meant I had loads of unique designs to sell at local craft fairs and on Etsy – I’m now passing on my Cricut skills to others.

— Sandra G

I went from being a complete Cricut newbie to being able to sell my own unique items - and even the files
