CRICUT: Importing .ccr and .gypsy files into Cricut Craft Room

I can’t believe I haven’t done a tutorial on this by now….. Better late than never I suppose…
Importing .ccr files and .gypsy files into CCR are done the same way…

First you’ll need to download/save the file to your computer. I’m using a file from my Facebook group but the steps are basically the same regardless of where the file resides.

  • Click on the Facebook groups title then click on the Files option

  •  Click on the Download button next to the file you want to save

  • Make sure the Save File option is selected and click OK

  •  Select the location of where you want to save the file.
You can save it to your Desktop, to your Downloads directory or to a specific directory of your choice. I created and save my files to My Document/Cricut/Projects 

  • Once your file has been saved open Cricut Craft Room
  • Click the My Projects icon on the toolbar

  • Click the Import button

  • Locate the file that you saved to your computer and click Open

The file will be imported and will appear at the top of your list of Projects

  • Highlight the file and click Open

The file will open ready for you to edit/cut

Note: If you have trouble importing a file into CCR it may be because the file size is too big.

Thanks for the easy-to-follow tutorial! I usually stumble around and finally figure it out, but it's so nice to know I can now come straight to your blog for directions. No more wasted time (at least not for this reason!) Thanks again!
