ah ha! Just got a chance to play around with this, and figured out how to get the state shapes to show. In the craft room, go to the "Mat Layers" section and click on the eyeball icon of each layer that you want to cut. Thanks again for posting this and providing the .ccr file for it!

Finally got it to download, but it is only the names of the states and not the actual shapes of the states. Thanks!
