$9.99 and you get access to the carts in the bundle for 30 days in the Craftroom.

I have a few helpful hints to get the most bang for your buck BEFORE you purchase the rental package especially if you haven't used CCR yet.

1) Practice with CCR a few days BEFORE you pay for the rental bundle.

2) Look through each of the digital handbooks and plan out your pages BEFORE you pay the rental fee.
a) sketch your ideas for each page
b) decide on your color combos for each page
c) choose the design and solid papers you want to use for each page
d) write down where the cuts are located page number, button local, etc on each page sketch

THEN AFTER you rent it and as you cut out the page cuts place them in a separate baggie for each page.
This way you can get more cut out and then put everything together after your rental time runs out.

Make extra cuts in multiple sizes, colors etc. so you can have a choice or add more as you create your pages.

Remember you can always use your existing cartridges to make additional cuts if you find you want to add more to your page once it is put together.

Hope this helps.

Just want to echo those great tips from Dragonfly. I really love the Craft Room but there will be a learning curve if you are just starting to use it. You can do lots of preparation and planning in CCR before you rent the carts.

You are so right! I spent 10 minutes the other evening telling DH all about my plan for getting ready to get the most out of my 30 days. It's serious business.BigGrin

Sadly this is yet another thing that PC is promoting that we in the UK are being excluded from.

This is a DIGITAL offer, why should there be an exclusion!?!

This makes me so sad.

Cut of the week projects that I see sold in the US for $1.39, I pay £1.99 for Mad

Please PC be a bit more proactive and less short sighted and let you overseas customers and supporters join in the fun.

I don't know if this is true or not but it's possible that if PC is buying rights to the artwork, they are not buying the rights to sell that artwork worldwide. Therefore, they could not offer the bundles overseas if it contained artwork that they didn't have the worldwide rights to.

My husband is a writer and he publishes with one publisher in the US and Canada but they do not have the rights to sell his books or ebooks anywhere else in the world or have them translated into any other languages. He deals with a different publisher to handle his translations and European and Asian distribution. Just an example.
