  2. Love your videos! One question...when going to cut what you just designed (layered and welded), how do you move it all to line up your paper?

  6. So appreciate these tutorials!! I have a question, do you have to do the layers or would the Imagine print it out all together with the different colors on one layer? Thanks

  7. Thanks for the welding help tutorial. I have same question as another person having to do with the layers as far as putting the paper on the mat & printing.

  15. Joy thank you for the tutorials for the CCR. I love designing with it. Now I only wish my Imagine would cut out using the CCR. It will print but not cut...

  16. Joy - thank you for the videos. You make the welding and shadowing look so easy. But do you separate the shadow when it is time to cut? Or does it cut by layers? Makes welding a lot easier than design studio. TFS

  18. Until I watched your tutorials this week I was constantly frustrated by craftroom. I knew it should be easy but I was making it soooo hard. Thank you so very much!

  19. Thanks for yet another great tutorial!

  20. Thanks! You're giving me so many great ideas and ways to actually accomplish them. I had welded words and shapes but did not know how to do the shadow. YAY! When doing the coordinates I just type in the number I want instead of using the arrows. But, I can see where that would come in handy. I do have a question. After welding things together is there any way to group them so that they can be moved as a unit?

  28. I just started playing with CCR and LOVE it! Your wonderful tutorials have been an awesome help. Thank you.

  29. Great tutorial. I just want to ask though, can you add a shadow for an item on a cartridge that does not have a shadow function - i.e. the accessories on the PDDU cartridge? I would love to weld a seahorse to the word aquarium and add a shadow to the whole image but can only see to do it around the word part that has the shadow option.

  30. Thanks for the videos. I've started using ccr a little since we've been able to link the gypsy. I've been having trouble layering when I decide to change sizes but I think I've got it now. Thanks!
