I failed again!!!

I once again tried to make cut-out cookies...and failed...again. What am I doing wrong? I am so frustrated! I wanted to make shamrocks with green sprinkles for St. Patrick's Day to bring to work and send to my daughter's school. I followed a simple recipe just for cut-out cookies and I couldn't roll it, it was too crumbly - then when I finally rolled a little of the dough,(over a floured surface like it told me to do) and cut them out with the cookie cutter, I couldn't pick them up! I feel like I'm the only person who can't do this. How do you do it??? (sorry for rambling I'm very frustrated!) Thank you
