Hi everyone this is Pam in very snowy Kansas.
I'm in desperate need of help with ccr.

I purchased several create a critter designs to make for my nieces' baby shower. First, they are
in color and don't look like designs I've purchased before. I thought they were cricut designs, not imagine ones. I have the cricut2.
My problem is trying to put the layers on seperate mats. I've created several mats but can't get the parts to go on them. HELP (before I'm bald hehe!!)

Pam - I quoted this because I want to be sure I'm understanding what you're wanting to do...so, I need to reread and reread! LOL. I a slow learner!

You can change the COLORS on the mat in CCR to outline only. I love to work with outline only, because when I turn on all the mat layers I can line things up together and make sure I have them sized the way I want them.

OUTLINE ONLY....You have to go on each mat layer you have created to do this:

Use the dropdown arrow on each tab.
Select: Color
Select: The white square with the red slash through it
Click on APPLY and Close.

Does this help?

I like to turn all the GREEN eyes OFF (click on it) except the mat layer I'm working in....usually the main mat layer. I try to place EVERYTHING on that first mat layer that I'll need for my project.....except, I do usually add things later on. But, for image layers, it's best to lay them all on at the same time and work with all of them if you want to resize.

THEN, if I have something on that first mat layer I need to move to another (or new) mat layer, I hit the plus to make a new mat layer AND/OR, I get the handles around the image I want to move and in the square on the image, I left click. You should see a new menu....select COPY.
Now, go up and turn off the eye on the mat layer you're in and turn on the eye in the mat layer you want to paste to and click on the name until it turns white. Now, hit PASTE. Wait a few seconds. Sometimes they pop right in; other times it takes ten, fifteen, twenty seconds. Most times they pop right in.

BEFORE I say anything else, is this what you're wanting?

Or, can we try to help you with something else? If I'm not here, someone will be.

Pam-

The individual ones you purchased do look like they were designed to use with an imagine
BUT
you can split them apart into layers.

I do not have an Imagine but went to check this out on CCR.

After you put the cut on the mat click on the brown "separate" box at the top of the mat(on the right hand side.

It will separate your cuts.

I also did it like this...

With the arrow box around the character there is a green "edit group" box, click on it, then press thw unweld button. It will separate your cut one layer at a time.

Please let me know if this works with your cutter.

D - Do you IMAGINE users ever use OUTLINE? I guess I can't see how using all that color helps you see what you need to see. Just wondering.

The ones she is talking about are listed under Imagine cartridges.

I had to check the "show Imagine cartriges" box at the bottom to access them.

I don't have an Imagine so I've never checked it before.

On there they have some Create a Critter single cuts.
When she puts them on the mat it goes on all in one piece.
She'll need to separate them then put them on separate mats.

(Does this make sense. My cold is making my head fuzzy. lol)

I don't have an Imagine...
I like to use the colors for my layers when designing.
I haven't tried outlining.

OK, now I need more help.

The elephant has me pulling my hair out. I have rotated and sized to get the largest size I could get on the 12 x 12 mat. When separating the layers, and pasted onto the layers, the ears revert back to the original size and not the new size. What is happening? The monkey worked perfectly but this won't.

Help please, the baby shower is Sunday. Confused

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THE EARS? lol!

What do you mean, they revert back to their original size?

Do you know that when something goes wrong, you can use the curved arrows at the top menus to GO BACK to where you were to start the process again? Just thought I would throw that in there.

Again, I don't have an IMAGINE, but I can try to do what you're doing by selecting the IMAGINE mat. Let me go size an elephant up to 12X12 (a little less, since we can't go 12X12, actually, and see if the ears can go crazy for me.

I'll come right back.....can you give me anything else to go on. Maybe REVERT won't work. Are you getting the elephant past the yellow markings on the mat?

I'll be right back, I think.

IF THE EARS ARE SEPARATE (I can't picture this yet, just bring up CCR, but I'm thinking in mid-air here) FROM THE BODY when you are resizing, be sure you are selecting EVERYTHING (box around all images) and GROUPING them BEFORE you resize and rotate to 12X12 (less). Not sure you can do that in IMAGINE, though.

Ha, ha! That was fun!!

It took me a while to find that CRITTER! But, when I did.......I do feel maybe you need to GROUP the images BEFORE you start resizing/turning on the mat. I see the two images...the front of the elephant separates from the ears/body of the elephant. Leave everything intact and get the handles around the images and GROUP, like I said before. Now, you can resize everything at once (I think before you were only resizing the top layer because they weren't grouped and that's why the ears stayed the same as they were before you resized the top layer.

Now, once you get them resized, if you need to pull them apart to cut separately, UNGROUP them and get the handles (the handles will only go around the top image) and copy/paste to another mat later. Once it is pasted, you can DELETE the top layer you just pasted to another mat layer (make sure it's on your new mat layer first). Now, you should have the ears on one mat layer and the other part of the body on the other mat layer.

Will this help you?

I see now HOW MUCH FUN IT IS TO USED THE COLORED LAYERS IN the IMAGINE mats. That's pretty cool. Too bad I didn't try that before.

Let us know if this helps or not. Or, let us know what else we can help you with. Someone will come along to help you early tomorrow if you need more help.

I'll be here a little while; I'll check again to see if you came back.

Thank you Gena!
This will be a great help for her and future single image buyers.
My suggestions were purely what I figured out through trial and mostly error.
I'm going to check the info out for future use.

Hello Everyone! I get the same error from the link I posted earlier, very strange! Here it is again: http://www.cricut.com/home/support/single_images

I hope this works, however if it does not the link takes you to the Support section. You will just need to click "How to cut Single Images" from the left side menu! Good luck, and Happy Crafting!!

Yes, Gena - That link does work.

I hope you'll come back on and make another comment, so the others know you came back and posted. I hated to come back on the thread for that reason, but I did want you to know it worked for me.

Thanks; I want to check it out even though I don't own an IMAGINE! It's very interesting to me.

Last night I finally gave up. I cut it out as a whole instead. Since it was in pieces, I had to put together like a puzzle. I glued the main pieces onto coordinating card stock (like brown for the lions' mane) and put it together. I then hand trimmed away the excess paper.

The link didn't work last night but the new one worked this morning. I printed out the instructions and hope to go back a correct these animals. I have arthritis in my hands and that is why I have the Cricut (besides wanting it LOL).

Narelle - Thanks for this tutorial. I have never taken the time to look at the tutorials (don't have time....lol)! BUT, this is very interesting to me and I appreciate the information. Didn't know you could do what you can do...and, I know I need loads of instruction! Just never thought I wanted to take the time and was happy not knowing a lot. I'm not going to say lol there, because it's not funny.
