Thursday Tutorial - Linking Cartridges to CCR

Happy Thursday!!! JoNeita from Create with JoNeita, here with this weeks Thursday Tutorial.  I have found that I love using my new Cricut Mini and my old, trusty Expression with Cricut Craft Room.  I really love that I don't have to dig out my cartridges and change them each time I craft.  It is also nice that I can cut multiple different cartridges on the same mat, which saves me time and paper. 
I found this video by Cara Miller, from www.caramiller.com.  She has a wide variety of tutorial videos to choose from.  This video talks about two different things.  The first is "how to link" your cartridges to Cricut Craft Room.  The second is a tip on how to keep track of any cartridges that have been linked to other accounts.   
I think this is a great tip.  There are so many good deals out there, that sometimes it might be worth it to purchase a used cartridge, even though you wouldn't be able to link it.  (I found the Sports Mania cartridge and a couple of others at a garage sale for $5.00 each...totally worth the buy).  Cara suggests using the bookmark feature to track these types of purchase.
Happy Crafting!!!

  1. The video that opens is by Sara Pink Cricut and not Cara Miller. Sara's video was made before you could link your Gypsy to CCR and now, you can have your carts linked to both your Gypsy and your CCR account. Also, all you need to do is select the cart from the All Carts list and click on the LINK icon under the keypad. No need to place an image on the mat and click cut. Just click LINK and the EULA opens.
