  1. I so need to learn to do this! But have used my Gypsy on all my cutting and really like how it makes it so easy. I will try the CCR soon, and give it a try! Thank you for the video help!

  2. I do use CCR but not very often. I have a Gypsy and I like to use it more since it is so portable.

  4. Joy...thanks for the video. It has helped me to learn a couple things. I use CCR but sometimes had trouble with the layering and could never understand why. Now I understand.

  5. I have used it a few times. I tend to use my Gypsy.

  6. I have not used the craft room. I grab my gypsy when I want to design. I did learn a lot more and plan to try it. I'm always trying to stretch my comfort zone.

  8. Thanks for the videos, Joy. I only used the CCR once or twice and found it much more complicated than Design Studio, which is what I've been using. When I get a little more time, I will definitely go through the videos one by one and hopefully come to understand this program.

  13. I had not heard about the CCR before, so I am excited to try it. I don't have a Gypsy, so I think using the site would make my scrapbooking life a little easier and more creative :) Thanks for the tutorials!

  14. Thank you for the videos! Very informative! Would you consider making one about how to get Gypsy files into Cricut Craft Room? I wish there was a way to work offline in Cricut Craft Room.

  15. Have never used the Cricut Craft Room, but after watching the videos I will definitely give it a try.

  18. I use ccr all the time and love it! The videos are good review for me !

  19. Since I use my Imagine almost exclusively, I won't be using CCR any time soon. CCR doesn't play nice with the imagine and I sure don't want to have this one die on my like my last one did. It's the Gypsy for me!

  22. I use CCR and find it rather easy to use although I always find something in tutorials that help me! I find the screen on the Gypsy too small.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I use CCR but sometimes it is frustrating when it crashes! Thank you for the helpful videos!

    ReplyDelete
  24. This video was so helpful! I always have such a hard time picking which colors I want for each layer. This would give me the visual I need. I love how you can resize all at once too! Much quicker!

  25. I am brand new to the cricut....your videos are great.

  27. I use it always. I love it. More than that I love your video tutorials because I haven't mastered this yet (2 yrs now) and some functions I dont even know about so you are a godsend!
    Thanks for all you share --

    ReplyDelete
  28. I will definitely be using these video's. I have the basics down but I can always figure out how to do even more.

  33. I use the craftroom all the time because I have the cricut mini, but I didn't know that you could move the layers around like that. Thank you so much for sharing this!!

  34. Love the videos even though I'm not a CCR user, love the Gypsy much better and I'm not tied to the computer. lol But enjoy learning about how to use the CCR because on the rare occasions that I have try CCR out I couldn't get it to do what I wanted it to do. lol

  35. Your blog had great inspiration for me to craft as much as possible! Thanks for a chance to win the Extreme Fonts Cart!!

  36. I am a die hard Gypsy fan and have only visited CCR a few times. Your tutorials are great, when my Gypsy dies and I have to use CCR, I know where to turn for help!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for the great tutorial! Yes, I use Cricut Craft Room. It took a while to adjust to using it after being a die-hard Design Studio user, but now I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love cricut craftroom. My grandchildren think I can do any thing. I have done a pirate birthday, an Owl birthday, a Dirt bike party and an Alice in Wonderland Rainbow installation among others. I have a laptop and I can sit and design the hook it up to the cricut and cut.

  39. I haven't used Craft Room yet, but I am definitely thinking about it....just hate getting on the computer in the evening after being on all day if I don't have to.

  40. Thanks for putting the CCR links all in one place. I've seen some of them before but then forget. Since I am a Gypsy user I've been slow to move to CCR and I get so frustrated with CCR.

    ReplyDelete
  41. yes, I have used and do use ccr. I find it is easier to weld on there than on the studio. I also enjoy when they let you use a cartridge you don't have for a week. Made a beautiful wedding card for a nephew with one of those free weeks. Both the studio and ccr are frustrating as they could be a lot more user friendly.

  42. I have not used the craft room yet, but maybe after watching your videos I will be available to use it. Thanks you

    ReplyDelete
  43. I finally made myself learn to use it (very simply) because I wanted to cut some of the free weekly cuts. So I do use it for things I can't cut on my E. But thanks to your videos, using it should get easier. Thank you.

  45. I used the cricut craft room maybe two times now for some reason I cannot open. I tried to reinstall it and it will not install at all. Bummer

  52. I don't use the Cricut Craft Room yet because I don't have a laptop computer and don't like taking my Cricut out of my craftroom. Hopefully I'll get a laptop someday and then I will use the Craft Room.

  53. Thanks for the videos - I use CCR but have issues with slowness when trying to do the design. Everything starts out great but then there is delays when moving and re-sizing, etc. Any suggestions of how to fix that - it is very frustrating because I spend so much time trying to get it to work! Thanks!

  54. Oh my gosh, thanks for posting the Cricut Craft Room Videos. Thank you so much for responding to the requests. Can't wait to get educated!

  56. I have become dependent on CCR. I love my gypsy but my eyesight just ain't what it used & CCR did not cause eye stain. Thank you for the videos & giveaways!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks so much for the videos. I know that I will use ccr more once I learn the little tricks.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love your videos. I'm new to paper crafting, so I started out with Cricut Craft Room. My first attempt at making Lightning McQueen before watching your videos was interesting to say the least. Keep those videos coming!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Super video. Had no idea you could do that? How do you get the shapes on the proper places on the mat for cutting out different colors.

  60. Okay I forgot to comment on the Extreme Fonts. It is an excellent font cart. Would love to win it. carjo40@gmail.com

  64. I haven't used the CCR yet, but hopefully I will after watching your videos!

  65. I love CCR and find it saves me so much time plus I can work on my projects away from my craft room on my laptop! I am planning to hold a training session for some moms from my school this summer but they said they don't have a USB cable for their Cricuts. Are there Cricut models that don't work with CCR?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Great tutorials, thanks for sharing Joy! Got a few questions : Do you know why sometimes when welding images some of them hide- and do not cut? Everying looks good on the mat but still will not cut...sometimes it gets solved by moving the image around a bit, but some times it will not solve the issue. I Like and use CCR a lot but would love for it to have some of the capabilities of Gypsy, I also would love to be able to use it on my tablet, I have heard that you can add an app called Photon for $5 do you know about this? THANK YOU for all you do and share Joy!!!!
    Have a wonderful day!

  67. Great tutorial, thanks so much

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love the CCR! It's time consuming and not as much fun as the actual cutting, but once I learned all of the tips and tricks (by watching awesome video tutorials, thank you!), it was much easier and faster to work with so I could start actually cutting, gluing, and creating! My Cricut is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

  70. Is there any way to use CCR or to design from your IPad. I no longer have a laptop. Thank you.

  71. What i don't understood is in reality how you are not actually much
    more neatly-preferred than you may be now. You're very intelligent.
    You understand thus significantly relating to this matter, made
    me in my view imagine it from so many varied angles.

    Its like men and women are not fascinated until it's one thing to do with Woman gaga!

    Your individual stuffs outstanding. All the time care for it
