I have Cricut Design Studio - and have had it, literally, since the DAY it was released. I have been a very strong supporter of Cricut and Provo Craft for about 6 years. I'm done. In my opinion PC is selfish, controlling, and uncaring. They've heard - over and over and over and over (since the beginning) - about what people wanted added to the design studio and refused to add it. When another company did what PC refused to do, PC bullied them into submission. I will sink no more money into the company.
I DO, however, still have and use an Expression, baby bug, Cricut Design Studio, 35 cartridges, Cuttlebug, Cuttlekids .... AND my SCAL.
We all have to do what works for us and what we think is best for us and our values. I'm VERY glad that the Cricut items suit your needs, but remember that they do not suit everyone's needs - like mine.
Amen Sister! I will continue to use my Cricuts and my other PC things I have bought and paid for but I will no longer by any PC products, there are better place to spend my craft dolars! MyGrafico is giving away a silhouette SD machine BTW, you can cut anything you want, no restrictions! That is what I am going to get when my "E" kicks the bucket! I've seen the cuts from that machine and they are so much nicer too! The Giveaway is on the MyGrafico facebook page under events. It ends on the 30th of june, good luck!
