Cricut Lite Cartridges added to Design Studio

The Design Studio update for the new Cricut Lite cartridges is available to download.  This is the best way to really see what each cartridge has to offer.  You can download the update from the site HERE.  You will have to log in to get to the download page.

When you download the font pack, be sure to save it and then run the installer to properly add the cartridges.  You will need to restart Design Studio for the cartridges to show in the list of all cartridges.  The lite cartridges will all be in the Font category even though only some of them contain a font.  The only cartridge missing from the update is the Savory cartridge.

You can also see the color sample sheets for each cartridge on the site in a new section of the products area  HERE.  Be sure to click the image tab and then click "View Large Image" to get the best view.

Robyn, Tammy, Joy and Melanie are previewing these cartridges and all of them have some great giveaways - click their names to go to their blogs for lots more information about the Cricut Lite cartridges.  There are also many people who have already been able to purchase some of these cartridges who are sharing their projects on the Cricut Message Board.  You can find links to many more blogs there.

I have not been able to find these in any WalMart stores near me yet   This is probably a good thing for now!  I can spend some time really looking at what they have to offer to make a wishlist.  The image at the top of this post is a screen shot done with Lacy Labels - I think that will be a "must have" for me!

A few notes...

Yesterday was my first day posting on the Creative Charms blog.  I'd love it if you would stop over there to leave a comment and to see what the other members of the Design Team have been creating - there is some great inspiration.  You can also join their Facebook page HERE - tell them Capadia Designs sent you!

Don't forget to keep checking on the Scrappy-Go-Lucky International Blog Hop to collect your clues - if you solve the anagram and email Mandy before the 18th, you will have a chance to win a set of the four cartridges from the Hello Thursday release in May.  All the details can be found on THIS POST - you also need to leave your comment there to have a chance to win the prize on my blog.  Design Team member Enfys at Going Buggy is the next to last stop on the hop and she always has fabulous projects to share - go see what she chose to represent her part of the world.

This Saturday is Design Studio Saturday on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot.  I posted the information about the Cricut Lite update for Design Studio and then did a quick summary of helpful tips for using "hide selected contour" in Design Studio.  You can click HERE to go to that post.

I got a package in the mail today - can you guess what was in it?  I need to play with the contents for a day or two and then I'll tell you all about it!
