Cricut Design Studio

Do you own a Cricut and have you been wondering about the new Cricut Design Studio and whether it is something you need to have??? Well, we are lucky enough to have our very own roving reporter and regular forum member Jen to fill us in on this new product from Cricut!

This product (for moi at least) has got to be the best find. It is fantastic it did exactly what I wanted it to do. It was so easy to set up and get started. As long as you read the instructions carefully (they are not complicated) you will be creating to your little hearts content. I was curious to see how combining different cartridges would work and I must say it was much easier than I thought. I chose 3 letters and a flower from each of my extensive collection of 4 cartridges and formed a word. Once I had "Welded" the letters together and was happy I pressed cut. The cricut then told me what cartridges to load eg "load JASMINE" you load Jasmine then it says "load PRINTING PRESS" you load printing press etc etc until the cartridges that you used have been loaded then simply press cut and off it goes. I really am amazed at how simple it actually is and it is going to be sooooo much fun to finally use words on my layouts instead of letters. I am so glad I purchased it and I highly recommend it to anyone you has a CRICUT mind you I have only played with it 1 night you never now I may put it on EBAY by tomorrow night lol. No I am confident that anyone who purchases will not be disappointed. Only two slight negatives but I got over them quickly. 1. It cuts at its own pace which is quite slow but that is ok. 2. price tag of $145.00 slightly expensive but if it
continues to do the job that it is currently doing then it will be money well spent. So nice to have
a product on the market the is electronic AND simple to use well done Provocraft.
This is Jen signing off with 2 thumbs up.

A few days after this review Jen wrote to say......

"Nope still holding firm on my review. I just can't get over how easy it is to use..The only problem is that I don't have enough cartridges. Just love it more and more each time I use it."

Sounds like a must have for those of you who own a Cricut!!

Thanks for your great review Jen, it is always great to hear first hand whether these new products live up to their expectations.
