Hello to my 1002 followers...

Way back in December 2007 when I created this blog, Design Studio had just been released. I started writing tutorials for DS in an attempt to help my fellow Cricut Lovers get to know and love this design program.

I celebrated each and every new follower to my blog. My first 100, then 200, then 500.....

Come forward to today and I have finally cracked 1000!!!

Sad thing is, I no longer update this blog as I've created a new blog called The Non-Crafty Crafter....

So..... would you be so kind as to come over to my new home and follow me there? I promise I'll still help you with your DS problems if you have any!!!! Just click the big green button. :)

The end of Design Studio updates...

Provocraft have announced that they will no longer be releasing updates to Design Studio. This includes both program updates and Content (cartridge) updates. Here's their announcement:

"In order to focus our attention and resources on creating and improving the Cricut® experience, we will not be providing further updates to the Cricut DesignStudio® software. In addition, any cartridges released after April 11, 2013 will not be updated to appear in the Cricut DesignStudio® software. We will still offer support, but there will be no additional content updates for the Cricut DesignStudio® software."

The final content update (v130401) was released early April 2013. That update contained the following cartridges:

Animal Antics
Boho Graphics Iron On
Brooklyn Iron On 
Creative Cards
Creative Memories Tiny Treasures
Folk Art Festival
Outdoor Man
Simple Cards
Something to Remember
Teresa Collins December 25th.

Any cartridges released after the above won't be added to DS.

You can download the above update from:

(Select Cartridge Update 2.)

Any previous cartridges will be found in the Program Update (cartridges released up to Nov 2009) and Cartridge Update 1 (cartridges released after Nov 2009.)
