Do you spend too much time searching for just the right design or cut file for your project? Do you have to compromise on what you want just to make something. Or, worse yet, do you refuse to settle and never finish that project?
What if, instead, you could design whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted?
Imagine how it will feel to finally make precisely what you envision, just the way you want, without compromise. Imagine having the know-how to impress everyone, even yourself, with what you can create. Imagine being connected to others who are on the same journey as you... all committed to designing beautiful things that they can upload, share with others, and even sell.
I cracked the code on creating SVG cut files to make gorgeous projects that have been shared over a million times. My files even got the attention of a book publisher, who just two months after I learned to do this, offered me a book deal. My crafting projects, my blog, and my entire life, have been forever changed by my ability to design SVG cut files.
IMAGINE WHAT IT COULD DO FOR YOU?
“The depth of information you will find in Jennifer's courses is beyond comparison! Jennifer is easy to listen to, very professional, and has a teaching style that makes anyone feel like they can learn! I've taken many courses and this is the first one that feels like everything is spelled out for me in an easy to understand format. She makes learning enjoyable and effective!”
Amber Fox - All Natural Joy
I created the CUT ABOVE program because I’ve been where you are. So let me tell you my story. I got a Cricut, I made a few projects, and then I quickly decided I wanted to create my OWN designs. I wasn’t content to just download what other people had designed — I had ideas, and I wanted to see them come to life. So after I made my first paper flower from an SVG, I started to play around. I opened the SVG in my illustration program — which I already had installed because I am a graphic designer. And I quickly realized how easily it was to modify and create, and I had the POWER I had to make precisely what I wanted.
That day, I designed my first paper flower — a peony with petals based on real peony petals from my garden. I was HOOKED. I began designing LOTS of paper flowers — roses, magnolias, tulips, daisies, sunflowers — you name it, I was tracing petals and creating 3D paper flowers that were AH-mazing, if I do say so myself. I was getting more creative and more adventurous as I went along, because I was learning by doing.
Then, about two months after I began my paper flower design extravaganza, I was contacted by a book publisher. They asked if I would write a book about paper flowers. I almost just said no, I can’t do that — I’m not experienced enough. But the truth is, that by this time, I was feeling pretty good about making paper flowers. Thanks to my ability to design them and cut them out quickly right away, so that I could tweak and refine them, I was actually well along at this point. And I’ve authored 60 books already over the course of my career, so I’m experienced at writing and teaching others who to do what I’ve learned. So I said yes, I’ll write a book and tell everyone what I know about making paper flowers.
A part of me thought it was just a dream. How can being able to design cut files translate into a book deal. But, sure enough, I turned in my book draft and received a check in the mail.
Amazing. I still am pinching myself.
But the real joy here for me, is not a book or a check. It’s that now, because I learned how to make my own designs for my Cricut, I can MAKE ANYTHING. You name it, I can do it. When my son comes to me and says, I really like this stuffed animal and I want to make one like it. Can you make me a pattern on the Cricut, mom? I can. I did it just last night — we made a lion plushie on the Cricut that I designed in my software. And that is a feeling like none other.
You can do this, too. And I can show you how.
"Jennifer has nailed my style of learning. I need actionable steps and I need them in order. Without knowing what I need to conquer first, I get lost and overwhelmed. Not only has she mastered the step-by-step approach to teaching but she also offers a personal approach. I love knowing that I can ask any question, at any time, and get an answer. She is obviously committed to the success of her students; it shows with everything she does!"

What are the system requirements to take this course?
When this course is completed, you will have a basic foundation for creating virtually any cuttable design! Your options will be limitless.
What else should I have for this course?
When does the course begin? Can I go at my own pace?
Enrollment is LIMITED to keep the class size manageable. I do not know when the course will re-open -- I may not open it again until 2019.
In order to keep you on track and not overwhelm you, the course presents a new lesson and practical, hands-on creative project each week (every Saturday) over the course of eight weeks. You may go at a slower pace, if you wish. You may start at a later date, if you wish, so long as you are in before enrollment closes. This is a self-paced course that you can access at any time you wish, re-visit whenever you want, re-play videos on demand, and re-download files as needed.
What if I am busy and can't start right away?
The course starts immediately and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. Enroll now to secure your spot.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me and I will give you a full refund.
How much does it cost?
The discounted price is $147, a savings of $50 off the regular price.
The next time I open this course, I expect to price it at $197 due to the immense value and the sheet time it takes me to help my students.
Can you really teach me how to design?
I will certainly do everything in my power to help! I am very patient when teaching and quite experienced at teaching a wide variety of levels of students. Also, I have taught my extremely headstrong (stubborn) 13-year-old son how to design. It is NOT easy, let me tell you. But I still did it and he now designs his own projects. (I am most proud of this.)
