    I absolutely cannot wait for the Cricut Craft room! This will open up lots of possiblities for me since I don’t own a Gypsy. I am much more comfortable working with my laptop computer and having the ability to transfer to my desktop which is next to my Cricut is great! I could go on and on, but this is probably the most exciting thing to come out of CHA for me!

  • Rhonda Harre

    Wow!!!!! What great new products to use in crafting. I am so impressed with the Cricut Craft Room. The search and design capabilities of the Craft Room are going to be awesome. Can you download and save designs to Gypsy, if you own the cartridges used in the design? Thanks for all the information. Blessings on your Day!

  • Julie

    Ok I didnt think that I needed the stamp maker….Wrong that thing is so cool. I also think that Provo craft hit it out of the park with the craft room. Now I have 2 things on my need list, stamp maker and laptop!

  • Jane L chadwick

    Oooo the stamp maker looks fab. The posiblities oh the posiblities. Cannot wait to get my hands on that. The cricut craft room sounds an amazing tool to have at your finger tips when it comes on line. So exciting. Thanks

  • Annette

    What a wonderful way to start my day. I grabbed a cup of coffee & watched the new videos. I can’t wait to see how easy the craft room is. Sometimes the DS is a pain. The stamp maker looks interesting but not right now(too many other things I want to have). Thanks for all your hard work. Make it a great day!

  • DianeK

    Thanks for being our private consultant on all those new products at CHA! Making custom stamps and stencils seems pretty easy. Wondering about the cost of the StampMaker products and if supplies will be available locally. OHHH, the Cricut Craft Room creativity will be an endless source of design–and FREE!

  • Marissa

    Thanks for sharing! I definitely will be spending time in the Craft Room!! Although the stamp maker looks amazing, I will wait on it. Keep up the great work!

  • debbie susee

    Megan, I don’t know what you are doing differently but I can see a huge difference in your video quality. And you have a very professional and pleasant way in front of the camera.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  • Beverly

    loving both of these! I agree with you, to make unique stamps and not necessarily sentiments. Love this new “Craft Room” and can’t wait till they have that ready to go! FREE!! is a great price!

  • Stacey Halbgewachs

    OMG! My husband was going to get me the stampmaker for Christmas but I told him that I didn’t think it would do what I wanted it to… BUMMER! IT does do what I want it to do… maybe I can get it for V-day?! Thanks so much for the in depth interview!
    I am also looking forward to playing with the Craft Room!

  • Cydney

    The stamp maker machine is my Valentine’s Day gift! DH won’t give it to me until Monday, but I know he has it. Nice to get a gift I really want! I can’t wait to start making stamps. Thanks, Megan for the preview!

  • victoria

    the stamp maker looks like it has way fun possiblities. If you already use make the cut or sure cuts a lot would the craft room be a duplicate program?

  • Carmen

    Hi Megan,

    Love both of these, being able to make your own stamps, sooo many possibilities and the craft room, can’t wait to go in and have fun with it.

  • Crystal Nichols

    I love the stamp maker, & I am so excited to see the cricut craft room. I am glad I made this my year to scrap more. There are lots of exciting thing happening.

  • Shirley E.

    The stamp making machine is kewl. I’m not a stamper, tried it, didn’t care for it, sold all my stamps and ink. Great for stamper though I’m sure! But the Craft Room..WOW!!! Can’t wait for that. I have the Design Studio Software which I use a lot, and I had to buy that and it only works on one computer. Craft Room looks much more advanced and hopefully easier to use! Thanks for the video Megan, you ROCK!!

  • GrannyCharlotte

    Thanks for sharing this exciting information Megan. I can’t wait for April to get here to get into that Cricut Craftroom!!! The stamp maker looks like it will be a great tool to add to the aresenal 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend.

  • Jennie Barger

    I guess I should thank you for showing me that Stampmaker…. darn it…. now I want it!! It’s just way cool!! The Cricut Craft Room is going to be awesome!! Exciting stuff!! Thanks for sharing it with us!!

  • Linda Jamme

    You are such a pro. You seem so comfortable in front of the camera and while interviewing others. Thanks for sharing this information. The Cricut Craft Room looks real exciting and the price is unbeatable! The stamp maker would be great for a business to make personalized stamps for others. What a super product that you can own in your own home.

  • Linda W

    I’m just wondering. . . if the Cricut Craft Room might be a Johnny come lately if one already has CDS and/or SCAL or Make The Cut. The Circut Craft Room has great possibilities for anyone just starting out. I will be checking it out for fun.

  • Debbie

    Lot of great info Megan. Thanks so much for the time you put in getting it all together. Answers a number of questions and it so nice to actually see it demo-ed. Thanks again.

  • Cydney

    Just got a chance to watch the second part of the video. Craft Room looks great. I have a Gypsy but the small screen is hard to see. This looks like it will work similarly but better. Thanks for the information, Megan. Keep up the great work!

  • Robin

    I am so so so glad that I happened upon your web site while I was viewing videos on U Tube!!!! What you have to say is amazing!! I learn something every time! These products are amazing! I just got design studio and I think that the craft room thing will be amazing! Keep the tips coming! Blessings to you and your family!

  • Cheryl

    Megan…can’t wait for the Craft room…sounds like it is going to be wonderful…and FREE!
    Love the stamp maker…now all I need is MONEY..and lots of it! Thanks! Great weekend to you too!

  • Julia

    I’m interested in the stamp maker too. That thing has actually been out several years but this (the UV light doesn’t appear to have changed much if at all from the original). But how you deal with the liquid polymer itself has come a LONG LONG way. I am really glad I never invested in the original kit so many years ago. This looks like it is much easier to use with the polymer in the little packs that you don’t even have to open until the stamp image is created!

  • Marcie Smith

    I am so looking forward to cricut craft room!!!!! I like the idea of being to design in larger, easier to see computer screen. I like that it is free, and that it includes all cartridges (imagine incl.). This will be great. As for the stamp machine. Not to sure about it. Looks messy to use and kind of pricey. Hope you will be doing some demoing on this one. Thanks

  • Mary S

    The stamp maker would be cool, esp., someone that is artistic and can draw. I am not sure about making the negatives.
    I am surprised with the CraftRoom. Where does that leave us with DS or the Gypsy? We had to pay to get those functions, now they come out with something free. (which is totally not like PC.) If a person doesn’t have the Gypsy, they could spend some time inserting each and every cartridge that they own; to link it to the program. Will we be able to share designs that some one has made like we now do with .cut files and .gypsy files? Something new to learn! The craft never gets stale, always something new. I love that noone does the same thing. We all do something different. We may use the same cut but in the end result, it can be something different than someone else’s work. Thanks for keeping us informed. I look forward to hearing more about the CraftRoom.

  • Janice

    I got the stamp maker for Christmas and just love it, I previously have an older version of the original stampmaker kit, without the machine and liked it, but it was hard to use and make perfect stamps, this one is a dream. I love it, I love your website and your videos, thanks Megan for all that you teach us. I have learned a lot from you.

  • Kim B

    What a great episode. I am so EXCITED about the stamp maker!!! What a great way to share my kids artwork. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!! I am pretty excited about the Cricut craft room too. So many new & exciting things going on. Thanks Megan for bringing it all to our computers!!! You Rock!!!

  • Carol P

    Hi Meagan, Love the Stampmaker….it sure does unleash one’s creativity…..Great video and looking forward to your Blog every day and seeing all the wonderful things you are bringing to us…..Thankyou soooooo much.

  • Shelly

    OMG so much new and exciting things coming our way! You do an awesome job showing us on the videos you make for us!! Thank you for sharing!!! Can’t wait to see the new things!!

  • Tammy Brownlee

    Just finally got to see the video! Can’t wait for the Craft Room! I have a Gypsy, but it is so hard to see with the small screen! Kinda wish I had waited!

  • Julie

    I have a lot of cartridges and 3 cricut machines. Will I be able to use my carts on all my machines with the craftroom product? I figured you would be the person to ask since you are so knowlegeable. Thanks.

    • Gayle
