You can download a FREE trial version of Design Studio from here:
This is a fully functional version of the software. However you will only be able to cut designs from the cartridge/s that came with your Cricut. (George/Basic Shapes for the original Cricut and Plantin Schoolbook and Accent Essentials for the Expression).
You can still design with all the other available cartridges - you just won't be able to cut your design.
What if I buy the full version of the software? Do I have to uninstall the trial version and install the paid version?
No! All you need to do is activate your software. Open Design Studio and instead of clicking the Trial button, insert the serial number off your CD (or the email you received when you downloaded the real version) in the correct field.
Going, going, gone...
