      Deisgning With Design Studio

      Have a Cricut? Baby Bug, Create, Expression? Even Cricut Cake? If you do, then you need Design Studio. Design Studio, or DS, lets you weld shapes to create your own designs, you can weld letters together to create words. However, the best feature I have found on it is that you can accurately measure what you need so that you're not cutting several times just to get the right size. This wastes both blade and cardstock, no?

      Design Studio eliminates that. You can measure the area you need the title, then create your title in DS so that it fits that space. SO easy! Also if you are creating a layered character, you can lay all the pieces out on the mat, cut your cardstock accordingly, and cut all the pieces out in one fell cut.

      Personally, I cannot seem to operate my Cricut anymore without Design Studio.

    • Design Studio..A Surprise on Every Cartridge

      Cricut does it again. DS is a wonderful addition the the cricut line of products. ALlowing you the ability to layout your designs to then print from the computer to your cricut is simply fantastic. You will never believe just how many different designs you haveon one cartridge until you open up design studio and start to play. It also alows your the ablility to review their other carts. without having to purchace them and be able to see exactly what is on each one, making your time and money well spent or well saved. I never knew all that my carts actually did until DS and WHAT A SURPRISE!!! I have been so thrilled and have been able to pick out just the right carts for me and my family. Now with the Juke box ( one of my next purchases) I won't have to change carts I can line em up and go to town. Thanks Cricut and I can't wait to see what you havein store for us next!!!

    • Design Studio Is Awesome!

      I thought this was a product that I would never have any use or need for. Then I thought, well, I'll get the trial version, and since I didn't have but one cartridge besides the ones that came with my Expression, I still thought the trial version would be all I would ever need or want. Boy was I wrong! I LOVE this product...and since I have since purchased another couple of cartridges, it is a MUST HAVE! I finally got the full version of the software and it is AWESOME!

      At first glance, you might think (as I did early on) that welding is about the only thing this is good for. WRONG! You can change so many other aspects of the letters/shapes along with welding. You can make objects fat and short, tall and skinny, rotate them, etc., etc. The more you play with this, the more you will realize what the software is capable of!

      Try this for yourself...you'll love it!

    • More Power to Your Cricut! :)

      I love-love-love my CDS software! It is great to be able to weld different letters and objects together, even from different carts, change the angles, stretch them...I like being able to preview carts that I don't already have, even play around w/their characters on-screen...the cute mousepad and official Cricut USB cord are nice-to-haves, not need-to-haves, but very fun!

      My only complaint about it is that it takes a long time to load each time you open the program, because it loads *every* cart Cricut makes. It would be nice if they would create a "fast-boot" option that only loads the carts you own. Thus, 4 stars instead of 5.

      **UPDATE**: With the latest update to the software, the program does not take nearly as long to load -- so I boosted it up to 5 stars!

      Cricut in my Computer

      I bought the Cricut Design Studio software about two years ago. It just came out. I was so excited. I loaded it right away and have loved it every since.

      The cartridge library has every cartridge released and can be updated with the new ones as they come out. What I really like was that I could use images from every cartridge to see what I liked before buying the cartridge itself.

      Yes, you do need the cartridges to cut the images but not to play and create on your computer. I reccommend that if you buy the software you also spend a little extra money of the Cricut Jukebox too. The jukebox saves you from having to switch cartridges during the cutting process.
