How to Group and Autofill in Cricut Craft Room

Today's Cricut Craft Room video covers grouping and filling your mat with images.  I got a great question about this the other day.  Someone wanted to know how to group the images I had welded (see below) and then fill a mat with the various layers so that a number of these could be made for cards easily.
 I decided to do a video showing how to do this but instead I used the image below since I thought people would relate to a "merci" (thanks) set of images for card making, instead of "JOY". LOL!
Check out the video below for more details (if you can't see the video, click HERE):

  1. Well, I just left a comment, but don't see it here. I did want to make sure that you know how much I appreciate the Craft Room tutorials though. I always read your blog, but don't always leave a comment. I do thank you for all the information you share.

  2. I was wondering if there is a --fit to page-- feature on CCR? I can't find it if there is.

    thanks for your tutorials!!


  3. Great tutorials! Very easy to follow and good information. You are appreciated!


  4. Joy, I want to thank you for all the tutorials on the craft room.I learned sooo much from them. I was a little weary at first but now am fairly confident on using this new tool. You are truly appreciated! Mimi :)

  5. Thanks so much for all these great tutorials. I would like to know more about fabric, felt and chipboard. Also to make a whole page of one object do I have to copy and paste or can I autofill?
    Thanks again!

  6. Thanks again Joy! So much appreciate what you are teaching!!

  9. Thanks so much for doing the tutorials on the cricut craft room. Still a bit insecure. I can't figure out how to hook my cricut up to my computer. I know there has to be a hook up some how.

    Thanks for all that you share!

  10. This is exactly what I've been needing! Thank you!!
    All of these tutorials have been a true help, and I am still a little shaky on things, but I'm sure the more I practice the better I'll get!

Some of them I wasn't able to watch when they were first put up.. but was able to go through your list of them this morning and watched them all!! Thank you so much, you make it look like it is easy to work in the craft room! Can't wait to get going in there! And love that I can go back and check the videos if I forget how to do something!

  16. Thanks again for a great video! I have used all of your suggestions so far. I only wish there was a way to watch your video as I'm doing it in the craft room. I have learned the hard way to do it exactly the way you've shown. Ah well. That's how you learn. The craft room has a lot more uses than I had at first imagined!

  17. Joy,
    Thanks for the tutorials! I have been having a terrible time working with this. Right now I am trying to print and cut a design I made in the craftroom on my Imagine. I used one everyday cartridge, one imagine cart and the Gypsy font. The craftroom recognizes the cartridges but not the font(it keeps asking me to insert a cart). I can't figure out how to 1)link my gypsy to the craftroom or 2)how to export the file to my gypsy and have it show up in my imagine files (it goes to my regular cricut files on the gypsy). Also, curious if you have any long waits or pauses as you work in the craftroom. I do (happens on three different computers I've tried. I have called their tech support but they couldn't come up with a solution. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions!

  18. Thanks so much for the Cricut Craftroom Tutorials! :0)

  19. Thanks teacher! Hopefully I will remember after Christmas because I have no "playing" time until then! Thanks for your help.

  20. Thanks for all your craft ideas. I really love them and look forward in the next few days to use them.

    Joanne Woz.

  21. Hi Joy - love all of your ideas - particularly enjoying the video how to's for the craft room :) I would love to win the E2. Its an absolutely awesome machine :) Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  22. Thank you, Joy, for these tutorials... I appreciate you taking the time to make us understand how to use this program alleviating much of the frustration that comes with learning a new product. My question is this... are we able to use the Hide Contour feature in CCR when using the Imagine? I have searched for ways to eliminate the "tick" marks when making a treat box (Santa's Village) but can't seem to figure it out. Your help would be much appreciated as always.

  23. Joy ! You are a complete star ! If it wasn't for you I'd be putting my expression 2 back in the box. I've learnt soooo much from your lovely website. Thank you and keeps these videos coming.


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to hear from you!
