Meet Abbi. Fondly known as the Queen of Paper Flowers & the Cricut Craft Fairy!

Hey there! I'm Abbi. 

My bucket of creative ideas is always overflowing, and spreading the joy of crafting is truly why I love what I do!

My mission at Abbi Kirsten Collections is to nurture the creative magic inside your soul by bringing you fun, easy-to-learn DIY projects and quality template designs that make your creativity come to life.

I'm here to be your craft bestie, hold your hand, and have fun with you as we play with color, discover new crafts, and educate our creative side.

That's why after 10 years of crafting with my Cricut machines, and teaching more than 100,000 crafters how to use theirs, I've set out to create a one-of-a-kind learning experience for Cricut crafters of all skill levels to enjoy!
