My Project for the Cricut Craftfest – Larger than Mat Gnome

For my session, I will be teaching you how to make a 36 inch tall (larger than mat) Gnome! Isn’t he cute??!!

We will go over how to upload files into Cricut Design Space and slice them so that you can cut them all out on 12×24″ mats. Then we will cut and put them all together!

My project will go live on Day 3 or February 8th!

What Cricut machine do I need for the Holiday Cricut Craftfest?

The 2023 Cricut Craftfest features all the current Cricut machine models: Cricut Explore Air 2, Explore 3, Maker, Maker 3, and the Cricut Joy machine. The beauty of the event is that nearly all the craft workshops will work seamlessly with the various Cricut models, with a couple of exceptions.

The Cricut Joy machine faces a few size limitations for certain crafts, but several specific workshops feature just the Cricut Joy to help owners of various machines.

There are a few Maker specific crafts during the event, such as our engraving workshop and wood workshop. Other than that, all the workshops can be followed with all the current models of Cricut machines!

Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you in the FB group along with pictures of your amazing projects!
