Valentine Scrapbook Page Using CCR

I am so excited to be with you here today both at The Bug Bytes and She's A Sassy Lady sharing my first CCR layout with you. I know to all you CCR (Cricut Craft Room) users you probably think that is silly but you need to know I am an avid Gypsy user. But I have a two fold reason to learn this first to be able to share with you and secondly (shhh) to be able to work at work! First let me thank my friend Pam for having me on The Bug Bytes as it is always an honor to be hear sharing my humble work with you all.


Now wasn't that easy... I love layouts that come together this fast and look nice too, don't you?

This is a photo of what my craft room screen looks like. As you can see it is a very simple layout and it is done with the FREE carts that are already loaded on the program.  Click HERE if you would like a copy of this file.


This is a good example of how to work the craft room. It is very easy but does take a while to learn. I had a hard time with my camera and will need to figure out how to position it for future attempts to video. I hope it helps you learn.

Here is a closeup of my page and as you can see it is very simple, which is perfect for the black pages on this album.

I also added a light coat of stickles on the lips to make them shimmer even through the page protectors. I hope you like my project today and it give you the desire to work the Cricut Craft Room too. It is an easy program but like all new things it takes a little time to learn. I am please with my first page and will keep using CCR in the future at work. But I will not give up my Gypsy Woman!
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me to share with you. Have a blessed day!

How can I thank you for this post? OMG I couldn't do a darn thing in CCR before this. I opened a second tab on my puter and did everything you here did step by step. Our free cartridges are not in black on my CCR like yours are. Is that because I'm using the web version and don't have CCR downloaded to my computer? How does CCR print those different layers? Thank you, thank you.

For some reason they are not showing up for anyone.... discussed on the Message Board that all were expected to return in the next update. So happy you were able to work through. When you go to cut it will bring up one layer at a time and you will have the ability to choose also.
