    if you have a baby bug, you can use the trial version with the George cart only. so if you have George and a baby bug, download the trial version...voila!

    Didn't even think of that! That's a great idea for those that have the baby bug. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, I have the Expression. Design Studio will be my next purchase.

    ahh yes...so you would have to use Plantin Schoolbook during the trial.

    I never cut anything with DS trial version, but I played around in it to get a feel for the set up and stuff.

    I don't really get this! Do you use the software to put designs and shapes together to make new designs?

    Design Studio allows you to manipulate the images that are on carts that you own. You can weld words and pictures together and erase lines and such that you don't want to cut. You can then plug your Cricut into your computer and using the cut files, cut out things that your ordinary cartridge wouldn't be able to cut. There are some amazing things that people come up with and they sometimes share these files that they have created. You can download these files and use them to recreate their projects.

    I have looked and looked at DS and it just seems so complicated to me. Like it would just take up so much more SB time that I already don't have? This website shows that this may just be true. But it is really neat what people do with it.

    I've cut a few things with DS trial version. I prefer having SCAL though.


    But if you have DS or if you have the Expression and the trial version, will you PLEASE cut me the Bobby Jack she has on the front page? My girls LOVE Bobby Jack, and I'd love to do a layout with that.

    That's why I'm saving for a Gypsy...very similar to DS, only more portable.
