Cricut Craft Room software will work with all Cricut machines, (original Cricut, Cricut Create, Cricut Expression, Cricut Expression 2, Cricut Cake, Cricut Imagine, Gypsy and Cricut DesignStudio). The Craft Room software will work with both PC, and MAC computers.
What is Cricut Craft Room? Cricut Craft Room is a free online design tool. The software is expected to be available in April of 2011. Cricut craft room will require an internet connection and access will be made with your Cricut.com account.
You will be able to link a Gypsy to Cricut Craft Room, or if you do not have a Gypsy you can link your cartridges to CCR using the USB cable and your Cricut machine.
“Cricut Craft Room is the solution to many of our customers’ requests,” says Jim Colby, Senior Vice President of Product Development. “With this new software, anyone can design with our complete library and add their personalization by welding and manipulating our artwork on the virtual mat. Customers must own a cartridge in order to cut images from it, but they can design and get inspiration from everything.”
CCR sounds like it is going to be a web-based tool very similar to the current Cricut Design Studio software. CCR will work like a virtual Cricut mat.
