Hi! I’m Connie and the creator behind Say It With Simplicity.

I’m an every day creator and have years of experience with using Cricut and Silhouette machines. I started out as a card maker but soon branched out into all sorts of crafts.

My current machines are a Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore Air 2, Silhouette Cameo 3, Cameo 4, Silhouette Portrait, and a Silhouette Mint Machine.

I enjoy using my 15″x15″ Heat Press, Cricut Heat Press Mini, Cricut Mug Press, and my Epson 2720 that I use for sublimation.

Sewing is another thing that I love to do, and I own modern and vintage machines that I use frequently.

When I’m outside, I like to explore another creative side with my miter saw, table saw, scroll saw, and other power tools.

My love for all things cutting machine-related led me to digital design. Now I create SVG files that can be used by the home crafter as well as those growing a small business. Some of these SVG files I sell in my Etsy shop. Other’s on Creative Fabrica. I share many in the Free SVG Library on my blog.

I want to help you!

It’s not just my crafting experience that I’m passionate about. I’m a former elementary school teaching assistant and I previously taught basket weaving around southern Wisconsin. I love engaging with people and answering questions to help others achieve their goals. That’s why I started the Say It With Simplicity Crafting Group on Facebook. You’re welcome to share your projects there, but also ask any questions you may have about using your cutting machine. We’re a small but growing group, and I hope you’ll join us.

In the fall of 2022, I completed the Terri Johnson Creates Silhouette Licensing Course. I want to help others learn how to use their Silhouette machine to create beautiful projects for their home, family, and friends.

Encouragement for the Creative Journey

Whether you make gifts for your home and family or you branch out into a small business, I’d like to encourage you in your crafting journey. It’s never too late to learn new skills with which to bless your home and family.

My husband and I started selling home d├ęcor signs and wood products at local markets and found a new avenue of income as well as an enjoyable hobby that we can work on together.

So whether you craft for your own personal use, or choose to open a small business, continue to learn, grow and enjoy your craft.
