Importing .gypsy and .cut Files into Cricut Craft Room

Pin It

Hello fellow Cricut Lovers!!! It has been a while since my last post or video. Things have been super busy and have finally died down. But I'm BACK now and I am so excited about the plans I have for 2012. One thing you will see for the new year is more videos. Of course I LOVE my Cricut machines and CCR but I will also be throwing in quite a bit more Stampin Up! projects. I am also super excited that my husband is working on a new web site for me. YEAH!!! I can't wait to share it with you when it is up and running. I'm sure that when it's ready I'll be ready to start giving away some blog candy. That's going to be pretty exciting. I've never done any giveaways on my blog yet. So that is sure to come. Keep watching:)

Ok... so... I was able to spend a little time in my Cricut Closet today (if you read my very first blog post you'll see why I call it that:) and got to playing around with Cricut Craft Room and Cricut Design Studio. So I have a video for you today on how to import files into CCR. As you watch the video you will find that I ran into a little issue when I first starting importing my files. But thanks to the awesome people over at Cricut Craft Room Blog I was able to figure it pretty quickly. As I show you in the video... there are a few steps that you MUST take or your files will load into CCR blank.

Here's the short version....

1) In CDS open your .cut file. Change the name and save as a .gypsy file.
2) Import your new gypsy file onto your gypsy. Open the file on your gypsy and RESAVE and change the name.
3) Export the new renamed gypsy file back onto your computer
4) Import into CCR

Simple enough? Ok... here is the video in case you need a little more detail. It's great to be back!!!


  1. So the only way to do it is by having a gypsy?

    1. This is the only way I know of right now. I'll look into and see if they have another way.

  2. there's no way to do ir directly to Cricut Craft Room???

    1. Not that I know of. Still working on finding if there is another way.
