Making for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we know a huge number of people in the Cricut community craft to raise awareness of important causes. We are always humbled to see these projects and how people use their Cricut machines for these projects whether it’s the pink ribbon to show support or breast cancer-themed makes.
It is so important to reflect on education about breast cancer, remember those we have lost, and champion the warriors out there who are on their cancer journey.
Join us in celebrating the amazing community of makers who, throughout this month more than ever, are using their machines and their skills to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer support charities.
Our thoughts are with all those whose lives are affected by cancer.
Cancer Ribbon Mug Makes
Vicky of Creativecraftgarden on Instagram created a Breast Cancer-themed mug with their new Cricut Mug Press that included a butterfly ribbon image design. She is also taking on a personal challenge to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK. Well done Vicky!

Wear It With Pink Bake Sale
Roisin from Sweet Eve Signs on Instagram is creating cake toppers with her Cricut machine and joining forces with her family members, Royalledelights and Harpereventsldn on Instagram, for a ‘Wear It with Pink’ bake sale to raise money for the charity, Breast Cancer Now.
Roisin and family said: “Breast cancer sadly touches so many families lives and ours is no expectation. We are a very creative family and wanted to use our small business of paper crafts, desserts and event planning to raise awareness and fundraise for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Cricut helped bring our fundraiser to life! With a bake sale what else goes perfectly then cake toppers & a banner was thrown in to compliment the decadent deserts and beautiful set up. We made sure to wear it pink and keep it pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.”
Roisin and family should be so proud of helping to raise awareness and money for charity. The decorations made were so beautiful and we bet the cakes were scrumptious too!
T-Shirt Making For Charity
Alison and Rowan, Ali’s Creations on Facebook, raised nearly £200 by selling Breast Cancer themed t-shirts and donating this to Breast Cancer charities such as Coppa Feel.
“We originally started making the TittyTees in a small fundraising attempt when we got some fun new kit in the form of a Cricut Explore and EasyPress and selling them to friends and family.
We have raised almost £200 now and will be keeping the pot building for the time being before donating to a selection of breast cancer charities, one being CoppaFeel! and hopefully a local breast cancer charity to help individuals and families in this area.”

Well done to Alison and Rowan for their amazing achievement in raising money and awareness for Breast Cancer.
