Thursday Tutorial, Understanding CCR layers + 1

Hello Crafting Friends!

Some of you have asked about tutorials understanding a little bit more about Cricut Craft Room. I though for new users it is really important to learn about layering. Here is a video Joy from Obsessed with Scrapbooking shared a while ago, IMHO is the easiest way to understand layering.

Now, here is what I do: I layer following these steps, but for cutting all in one mat, I make sure all my layers are visible and then highlight them all (Ctrl + A) copy them onto a new layer (Ctrl+C)  and arrange them on the mat before cutting. Using the original layers as a reference.

Here is another video of a great idea for a Picture Frame Using the Artbooking Cartridge:

Have a safe and happy Easter!

Quick Tip Tuesday

Good morning everyone!  If you are like me I have so many cartridges that I can not keep track of what I have and what I don't.  I found this really cool list of cartridges in the form of a spreadsheet at this site Cricut Chat which you can down load as a reference.  Hope this site is helpful!! Happy Crafting Pam

Spotlight Sunday

This Spotlight Sunday marks the end of Dawn's week as Guest Designer here at FCCB.  The DT would like to thank Dawn again for being a guest desginer!  Before we say our final goodbye, Dawn has a few parting words and one more project to share.

Wow this week flew by.
I want to thank all of the wonderfully talented artists here at Fantabulous Cricut for welcoming me into their Design Team family this week.
Being asked to be a Guest Designer here has been a huge honor.
Fantabulous Cricut was one of the first challenge blogs I played along with when I started my blog a little over a year ago and I always appreciate when their Design Team comes to visit and leave their sweet messages.
Thanks to you, sweet FCCB followers, for making my week here a memorable one.
I hope you will all come to my blog for visit and to check out my crafty projects.
You can see all of my projects that have a Cricut cut or two or more by clicking on the Cricut link in the label section on my blog sidebar.
Before I go. I would like to share one more card with you.
Easter is fast approaching so I made this card to share with you today.

I used the Celebrate With Flourish and Easter 2010 cartridges to create my card.
Of course I added a little embossing using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity.
May your day always be filled with love.
Crafty hugs,
Dawn aka
