Cricut Craft Room Series - How To Use the Auto Fill Feature

Pin It

Well....January is almost over. Have you heard about all the cool stuff going on with Cricut? They have a new machine called the Cricut Explore. Very cool! Not sure when I will be able to get my hands on one but I can't wait. They also have a new design space that will go with it. I'm interested in seeing what this means for Criut Craft Room. Hopefully nothing. I haven't really heard much about it yet. If you haven't seen what it's going to look like yet... here is a little clip from the Provo Craft website.

Anyhow... I am a huge fan of CCR and I am here to share a quick video for you with a tip on how to use one of the features in CCR. It's the "Auto Fill" feature. It does come in quite handy and saves time when you are working on multiples of an image. I know as Valentines Day comes it will certainly be helpful.

So here's the great thing about this feature. Say you are making 20 Valentines for your child to take to school. So you have 20 hearts of the same size to cut out. Well... without this feature you would have to add the same image to your mat 20 times. But... if you use the autofill you just add the image to your screen once and tell it to fill the page. Or... depending on the size... you can tell CCR you want 20 of that image and it will populate your mat with that many hearts.

You know what.... It's much easier to SHOW you what I'm talking about. Here's a short video to show you just how easy it is to use this feature.

Oh.. and here is the FREE CUT going on right now. Sorry I haven't shared it sooner. I was hoping for something Valentines Day related. Maybe next week will be.

Today is the LAST DAY! So if you want to cut these guys out for free... head over there today. Just click on the pic.
