In case you missed this on the Cricut messageboard or Facebook page this is a message from Cara at PC:
We know that some of you are wondering why you get the following message when trying to access the Cricut Craft Room: “It looks like you’ve not been granted access to the beta. Check back periodically for a public beta”. What does this mean?
We want you to have the best possible experience when using Cricut Craft Room. To help us identify bugs or problems with the application, a beta version of Cricut Craft Room is available to a limited number of users called beta testers. These beta testers are providing us feedback so that we can resolve problems before Cricut Craft Room is launched publically. This beta testing process has taken more time than initially projected. Please be patient with us. We want to make certain that Cricut Craft Room runs as flawlessly as possible before opening it up to the full Cricut community.
