How to Hide Selected Contour in Cricut Craft Room

I made a quick video to show how to "hide selected contour" in the Cricut Craft Room.

What is "hide selected contour" and why do I need to know how to do it?

Well, in the photo above, you can see solid black lines on the body of the doll and the eyes.  These represent cut lines.  What if you wanted to get rid of the eyes so you could use a cute face stamp?  The video below will show you how to do that.  The image above is from Once Upon A Princess and without using "hide selected contour", you would be stuck with those eyes since there is no blackout feature.

Check out the video below (click HERE if you can't see it):

  1. Thanks for the video. I am enjoying all of your Cricut Craftroom stuff.


  2. Thank you for your videos on the craft room. I am learning... slowly as I am still holding on to my Gypsy!
    Many blessings to you and your family in the new year!

  3. thanks this was a great tip. NO shelia dont get rid of the gypsy! it will still come in handy! Hope ev1 has a happy and safe new year!

  4. Sheila - you can't get rid of the Gypsy. You know you actually need it all! That's how they have it set up... LOL!

  5. Thanks so much for your awesome tutorials.......I can't wait to use the CCR....January 4 sure!! and your videos are and will be a godsend!!

  6. Thanks Joy
    You are always so helpful

  7. Thanks Joy, really love the craftroom but still having problems with it co-operating with my Imagine, works fine with my Expression. Was wandering how to make a file on the craftroom and load it to my Gypsy, can you help!

  8. I could not thank you enough for these videos! I have the cricut create and for Christmas my husband bought me the Cricut Expression 2 and I was getting frustrated on the layer cuts. You helped me so much! I am so eager to start projects now. These things are not cheap and would hate to have them just sit there with my not doing anything with them. Again thank you for the helpful videos!

  9. Thank you so much for another great video. I have to say that the CCR has really expanded my use of my Expression. And all these helpful tutorials and tips you share are making it even easier to use.
    Thank you so much for sharing. Happy New Year!!! :)

  10. Thanks for showing all the tips you have learned along the way with the Cricut Craft Room. I'm still having difficulty with cutting and getting through to cricut help to get any answers.

  11. Thank you Joy for that great video! You do an awesome job explaining to the layman! I appreciate the time it has taken to put these together, I've viewed everyone and plan to revisit them as needed.

    I actually started digging into CCR the past couple of days and it is amazing how user friendly this is compared to DSE!

    Thank you for all you have done and Happy New Year!

  12. Thank you very much, for your CCR videos they are so helpful. With the new semester starting, I plan on lots of new bullentin board ideas and library signs. Thanks again and Happy New Year

  13. Joy- Thank you for the tutorials. Like many others, I will be using CCR in the new year.

  14. Looking forward to playing in the Cricut craftroom! Thanks for Sharing!

  15. I have been too busy to explore the CCR but when I head south for the winter in a couple of weeks, watching your tutorials and working my way through the Craftroom will be top priority. Thanks for posting them.

  16. Thats a great video.thanks for Sharing your know how with us. Thanks for all you do and share, God bless you and yours.

  17. Love the video, you explain everything so clearly. I also love that you think outside the box and show us how we can use the hide contours feature to create layers. Joy, you rock!

  18. Your videos/instructions make using the cricut so much easier. Thanks for everything you share. Happy New Year.

  19. Thanks for another great video on the Cricut Craft Room. They are so very helpful and I appreciate you taking time to do them.

  20. Thanks Joy I find all your suggestions so helpful. Thanks for taking the time.

  21. Thanks for all of the great videos on the craftroom, they have really been great.


  22. For those of you who haven't gotten to the CCR yet, you will be so glad when you do. I just love it. I am getting so much more done with the assistance of the CCR. It is a real timesaver and enables me to do so many more things. It is great for exact sizing, shadowing, welding, and use of every inch of your papers. I can fit something into a small spot on a scrap of paper with great precision. No more guesswork. It's wonderful

  23. Thank you for the great videos. I have not done much with the craft room, I have design studio and just find myself automatically going there when I want to do a project. How do you save the designs you buy in the classroom? Is the classroom the only place you can use them?
    Thank you again Joy, you are so generous to do these things for us.
    Have a wonderful new year.

  24. Thanks for this tut. I was able to prevent the envelope score marks from printing after watching your video. THANKS!


  25. Thank you! Straight and to the point and you already have your items loaded on the mat. Extremely helpful to new Cricut user.
