My Pink Stamper - January Blog Post - Love is in the air

Love is in the air...
 
Designed with my new favorite tool, the Cricut Craftroom.
Printed and cut using the Cricut Imagine.
Stamped with My Pink Stamper's - From the Heart Stamp Set.



Most the supplies used.
Even though I printed and cut the elements for this card on the Cricut Imagine, it could still be cut with pattern paper on the any other Cricut Machine.

Cricut Craftroom Instructions
As I mentioned before, I designed it in Cricut Craftroom. It is a free software that you can use to craft with any of the Cricut Machines. I will admit I was a bit hesitant to use it because I didn't know where to begin. I didn't know how to get my computer plugged into my Cricut and I also wasn't sure how to let it know what Cricut Cartridges I owned so I could cut with them. Well let me share with you want I learned. You can use a printer cord to connect your Cricut Machine to your computer. One end with be a USB end and the other is a square looking end. If you already have Cricut Craftroom installed on your computer, when you plug it into your machine then it will prepare you to update your machine. It will take a little while depending on your internet speed, but be patient. Then you create your project. Finally when you go to cut it will tell you to insert your Cricut Cartridge into your machine. That way it knows that you own it. If you want to permanently link your Cartridge then you can click on the little link button. If you are borrowing somebody else Cartridge, then DONT link it. If you don't link the Cartridge then it will prompt you to insert it each time you want to cut with it. I hope that helps answer some questions you may have about the Cricut Craftroom. Let me say....I have a Gypsy and I love it, but I really love the Cricut Craftroom.
