Share the love!

Tell me what you want to make and I’ll show you how to make it in The Great Maker Show & Tell Challenge! Plus, you can participate in the challenge for a chance to win fabulous Cricut prizes, including a Cricut Maker!

As a thank-you for your support and encouragement over the last two years, I am creating 25 projects just for you during the 2018 holiday season! I call this project The Great Maker Show & Tell and it is a virtual holiday countdown calendar filled with gifts for YOU! Each day, beginning December 1, I present you with a brand new project to craft, make, or do. You can make these projects on a Cricut or by hand if you don’t have one.

January 2019 Update: The challenge and contest are over, but The Great Maker Show and Tell lives on! I will be doing weekly projects and videos from this point on. Below is the information on the challenge and contest for historical purposes:

What projects will you make in The Great Maker Show & Tell? YOU get to decide. Each day you can send me a new project idea or tutorial request and I will pick one. I will put a particular emphasis on projects and tutorials that make great gifts! And each time you send in a project or tutorial idea, you get entered to win one of several fabulous prizes, including a brand new Cricut Maker, three Cricut EasyPress 2 machines, Cricut vinyl bundles, and multiple copies of my Cricut Coach Playbook.

Enter the Great Maker Show and Tell Giveaway

Each Great Maker Show & Tell project will have a fun video with yours truly,  a step-by-step photo tutorial, and a free pattern/cut file. And if I pick your project to make that day, you get a bonus entry for the contest!

You can even earn extra entries daily by watching each video, completing and sharing a photo of completed projects, liking and sharing my videos and tutorials, and so on! The more you participate, the more chances you have to win.

Prizes will be awarded right after Christmas on December 26, 2018! Update: I’m in the process of randomly picking the winners today and notifying them via email. So keep an eye on your inboxes and spam folders.

You can get started earning entries right now by sending me project ideas using the entry form below or through this link.

  1. I love your dog boxes and use them as gift boxes for the earrings I make for presents – they are the perfect size. I would love it if you could make some more of these type boxes like a caravan, cat or a koala (I live in Australia). Anything that is small, beautiful and a little unusual. I love your site, files and your cut above course. Thank you for helping me make the most out of my cricut and making me look more talented than I am. πŸ™‚

  2. i would love too see what can be done using the deep cut blade for explore on or air..Can’t seem to find anything much then the maker… Thanks Jennifer

  3. I would love, love, love so good glass etching ideas. I have a bunch of mugs and glasses I’ve collected that are new and I’d love to etch them using my cricut/maker (not actually etch the glass but make designs and then I can use glass etch that comes in a bottle. Thoughts or ideas? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. Have you done anything with cutting fabric on the cricut? I have ‘read’ several things, but I am a visual person and tend to learn easier that way! πŸ™‚

  5. You are such a talented crafter and gifted teacher! I’d love to learn how to make wood toddler name puzzles.

  6. Just found you and was watching your glitter ornaments video. As one who LOVES weeding and I do a lot of fine lacy vinyl designs, my tip is always pulling vinyl at 45 degrees and close to the surface versus pulling more upward.
