Hi,
I'm new on these boards and sort of new to cricut. I have a personal cutter. I only have the George and Basic shapes cartridge so far and the weekly free cuts from Cricut. I'm wondering how to use the blackout image/layer feature. It looks to me like the shadow layer... Any suggestions on how to use it? I hate to waste a feature when I have access to it, but I'm lost at the moment.

Usually the blackout is the same size as the original (basic) shape just with no details cut from it.
A lot of times it is used behind the original cut so the cuts on the original (basic) cut has an additional color.
The shadow is just a little bigger than the original basic shape and is also a blacked out version of the original.
It is used to outline a shadow around your original cut.
A lot of us use the shadows and blackouts so we can add our our face stamps or details.

Hope this helps.

D,
Thanks so much! I just couldn't figure out why we'd want to cut out an identical shape with no details...newbie mistake, I know. Now that I know what it's for, I'll definitely make use of it!
