I have not used it yet but I received my $50 credit so I was going to try it out.
Great motivation!

How do you know how to layer and what the finished design will look like without a book?
Just casually browsing I picked a design and it didn't show the layers...

Thanks,
michele

Above the area that looks like our keypads you will see the features available for the designs such as layer 1,2, 3, shadow, etc. You just click on those. You can hover your mouse over the design and see what it looks like on the mat.

Hope this helps alittle...I'm not very good at explaining!BigGrin

You can download the handbook from the shopping page and check them out that way.
I have all of mine downloaded to my Galaxy Tablet and use it to check out the needed cuts.

You can also put each cut layer on its own mat layer and see how they go together.
Give each mat layer its own color.
I often use the colors I plan to use for the project.
I do this a lot to see what my final cut will look like.

If it is a single cut or CCR Exclusive you can check out the cut in the shopping section to get the idea and then build the cuts as suggested above.

Hope this helps.

We all have a little different way to go about things in CCR; here's what I do.

I don't like to have to go all over looking for things, so I try to utilize CCR to the utmost and I like layering everything on my mat layers and viewing them altogether, or just work on one mat layer at a time.

When you come to a part of your design that you don't want to CUT at the same time you do other images (e.g., when you are using lightweight and heavier papers and need to cut them at different speeds/blade depth, etc.!), you can make another mat layer.

You do this by going up to the top (in CCR) and clicking on the PLUS sign. By working on one layer, you must turn the GREEN eyes off on each mat layer (on the tab at the top).

I also do not like the flooded color, so you can click on the down arrow on each mat layer (at the top) and click on the white square with the X in it...this will turn off the flooded color and give you the outline.

NOW, if you want to look at all layers together to place them over each other and/or to size them with each other, you can turn all the eyes GREEN and you will see all mat layers at the same time.

ABOUT IMAGE LAYERS.....You get your main image on the mat....use the SHIFT key to see if there is another layer to it (sometimes when you hit SHIFT there will be an altogether different image, so you won't want that). If there is a tab beside the tab you used for your first image that says LAYER1, click on it to get a layer to your first image. You might need to get another part of the LAYER1 by using the SHIFT key....and so on.

Occasionally, the cartridge will have LAYER1, LAYER2 right on that first tab right below the first image on that tab. Usually, there are no other tabs to that cartridge.

HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS YOU A LITTLE.
