Cricut Design Studio

Okay, never have I admitted before to having OCD when it comes to my crafting until today. I have not gone to bed, you can hear the chirp of the Cricut ringing through the house and my mind is on full speed ahead. New Years Day I spent my time organizing my craft area doing so I brought the Cricut out of the computer cabinet to my work table and hooked it up to my laptop. I downloaded the free Design Studio months ago and never played with it until yesterday.

There is a link in my sidebar that has the Cricut Logo, click on this link to take you to the web page where you can find the free version of the Design Studio (This version will only work with the George Cartridge, you will need to purchase the full version to use your other cartridges). Warning, once you click you may not quit ;)

Here is a flower frame made with the Design Studio and the George Cartridge, you can find the cut file for this frame {here} at Paper, Scissors, Ink. I cut my frame on SU's Rose Red Card Stock.

Here is my card, mind you it is not finished yet I will put some bling into the flower centers and place some ribbon. (Because of the lack of camera I can't get a good scan with a bulky card.) I may replace the center image with the sentiment stamped on a plain piece of card stock not sure if I am used to busy backgrounds yet for sentiments.

Such a fun card to make, I love my new discovery.

WOW Sara, these are great. I don't have a Cricut yet. I may ask for it next Christmas. I have too many other toys I need to use first. I think once I get more into scrapbooking I will probably want one. I LOVE what you did with it!!! TFS

When I said we left SD it wasn't S. Dakota I meant San Diego :) I would have stopped to see you silly, we are in Mississippi now. I hope you had a great New Years!

Great card! My sis told me you could use the Cricut with the computer now but I thought she had it mixed up with some other machine. Glad you are having fun--when I really get rolling I forget to eat! Wish I could get in that zone more often LOL!
