Hi, I’m Ilyssa from Domestic Heights.

I’m an engineer turned crafter here to help you navigate all this silly technology involved in cutting crafts.

I’ve designed thousands of cutting machine projects by now. 

Hey, I totally get it, you’re not trying to get your PhD in graphics design. You just want to change the bow on Minnie Mouse ever so slightly. 

This isn’t some super pricey eCourse where you have to watch a Game of Thrones long series of videos to learn how to make a circle. 

These are just simple ebooks to get your started, teach you the basics, and get you on your way to making all those custom t-shirts for your next Disneyland trip.

Sure, you can get some of this for free watching Youtube videos but do you really want to waste 20 minutes just leaning how to resize some text?

What about all those unique features for cutting crafts like “Attach” and “Group” in Cricut Designs Space, how do these SVGs translate?

What if I have no drawing skills?

The great thing about vector designs is you never have to start from scratch! Take any image you have and turn it into an SVG as a starting point and make your edits from there!

Or maybe you want to customize something you bought? I can’t count how many times I only have 1 sheet of cardstock left in a particular color but the design won’t allow me to fit it onto my materials.

You can also use your hand drawn items of written text as a starting point and use the mouse and editing tools to make corrections. The possibilities are endless.

Can I really learn how to use these complicated tools?

If you can use your cutting machine, then you can use Inkscape or Illustrator. I break it down into incremental image filled tutorials so you can follow along step by step. I’ve also included practice files to put into action what you’ve learned.

How long will it take me to get through this course?

This is a self paced ebook. Fit it into your schedule as you have time. Go at a pace comfortable for you.

All future updates to this ebook are included for free with this purchase.

What if I just can’t figure it out?

I believe anyone can do learn Inkscape or Illustrator. 100% money back guaranteed.

If you’ve given it an honest effort, send me a screenshot of your work and I’ll give you a full refund. I kindly request you’ve at least downloaded the software and made an effort to get started.
