Back again with the July Hello Thursday cartridge release.
Three carts were announced this month - Fontopia (a font cartridge plus some cool looking card bases), A Frighful Affair (Halloween) and Close to My Heart's new cartridge collection called Artiste. Like the previous CTMH collection the cartridge comes with co-ordinating stamp sets and chipboard sheets.
As usual, go check out the Cricut Blog to see more fantastic work from the Cricut Design team.
Provocraft have done something quite different with the release of Fontopia. Not only have they released the full cart that includes a monogram font set, crests and cards, they have also released for sale digitally just the monogram font set, just the crests and cards set and all the monogram letters individually.
However...only the full cartridge is available on Design Studio. But if you use Cricut Craft Room or a Gypsy you can make use of the digital downloads.
Cricut Craft Room has everything available to purchase separately as listed above.
The Gypsy contains the full cartridge, the Monogram set and the Crests & Cards set. The individual monograms aren't available.
I think it's a great idea that PC are now going to be offering individual images for sale!
Interestingly, PC have also added the CCR Basics cartridge to DS. I'm not sure how that's going to work but I'll give it a try and see what happens!
See you around the 19th for the July cartridge release. Some of us were lucky to see a sneak peak of a cartridge called Create a Critter 2 in CCR. It looks similar to Create a Critter 1 but the animals appear to be dressed in seasonal outfits. Can't wait to see if it's released this month!
Three new carts released this month. Check out the Cricut blog for projects created with the carts. Official Cricut Blog
A quick side note - Art Deco, Chip Decor, Paper Dolls Teen Scene and Spring Cottage (the carts from March and Apr/May) were added to the Cartridge Content update yesterday! Download from here: Cricut Design Studio Home
Back when Design Studio was first released I started putting a beginners guide together. For some reason I never got around to posting it on the blog. Instead I concentrated on putting individual tutorials together.
Well, a month or so ago I dragged the guide out, dusted it off and finished it!
So, if you're new to DS or just want a refresher on what the program can actually do, here it is! Just click the link below to download the PDF.
1: Drinking two cans of V Energy drink and 5 cups of coffee will result in insomnia.
2: Insomnia means that you'll still be awake at 2:00am. Then you'll decide that it's a great time to do some work on your blog...using your iPad because you're away from home visiting your Mother for the weekend.
3: Working on your blog at 2:00am means you'll stuff something up badly and not have your backups available to fix it.
4: Next time read a book!!!
So, this is how the blog has to look until tomorrow! :(
I'm so late with the Hello Thursday carts! So without further ado, here they are..
10 new carts this month:
