"Engraving Metals is a must-have if you own a Maker machine! The ebook is very informative, and Jen leaves no question unanswered. There are so many approaches to engraving with a Cricut and this ebook covers them all. I especially loved the spatula tutorial. I would have never thought to do this. I was also impressed with how many types of metals can be used with the machine. The ebook covers various options plus explains the pros and cons of using them, which is a huge help to know going into a project. Thanks for the inspiration, Jen!"

Hey! I'm Jen and I really can't just let it go...

If it has to do with crafting or art I need to know TODAY how it works. It will drive me nuts until I figure it out.

When I first got my Cricut Engraving Tool I was SO excited.

I'd been stamping metal jewelry and felt limited by the pre-fab designs. With a Cricut, I could create my own designs.

And then my first engraving was... well, less than satisfying.

I couldn't see it. It wasn't deep at all, I felt like I'd literally just scratched the surface.

(And I know a lot of others are with me on this.)

I HATED the fact that I spent money on it and didn't love it.


Maybe we're alike in this, but I truly can't mark a craft project as "failed" and move on.

I just can't.

I spent the next couple of months obsessing about and I did it- I figured out solutions to the major engraving problems.

But I still couldn't let it go.

Because it still wasn't a good investment if I couldn't engrave more than dog tags or aluminum bracelets. And those were the only project tutorials I could find online.

So I turned back to the metal stamping and tried to figure out a way to bring those projects over to engraving.

That led to tutorials on engraving vintage metal spoons, and (after more obsessing) I figured out how to engrave pie and cake servers. HUGE WIN!

BUT that was just the beginning.

Now I'm still totally obsessed with the engraving tool...

because it does SO MUCH!

Still, I don't want YOU to have to go through that same long process.

(I'd rather you spend your time making amazing things!)

So I pulled together everything I've learned about engraving metals with a Cricut Maker into this one e-book.


You Can Do It Too!

"My Grandson is a Su Chef in an Italian Restaurant. For Christmas last year, I engraved a few serving pieces with “Chef…and his name”. He was delighted and actually took it to work and showed it to the Chef. I love engraving with my Cricut, but have made some real booboos. So I am thrilled that you are publishing a book all about it. I am very excited about what is to come."
