No, I didn't have any time to actually hook it up to the computer today and tomorrow is going to another busy day. My dh is in the Air force and being deployed on Tuesday so we are frantically getting all his stuff ready and me ready too I guess.

I did however last week rearrange my craft room so that is sit right by my computer! So I am ready!! Now if someone could find me some time!

So I have to do it during a time when I'm able to be online, yet I'm not trying to look at any websites.


When I try to open the software it shows the exact version but the only version I could find at the MS site was 2.0. The version it gives on the error message is 2.0.50727 so I have no idea if the one on the MS site will even work.

btw who is my "application publisher"?? The error message says "Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET framework".
The same thing happened to me the first time I installed it. I just uninstalled it and downloaded it again. The second time I made sure all my other windows were closed. It worked the second time.

I don't have it, but the trial lets you play with all the carts, you just can't cut them out.

What type of computer do you have? Because it is not a Mac Software? On line for the full version it says XP or Vista
I'm on a pc-it's less than a year old and my OS is XP. For some reason the auto update didn't work. I don't have time to dowload the software again tonight-that took a few hours because I couldn't do it all at once. I think they're making it a big pain in the wazoo so I'll just give up and buy the software. LOL.

I would be really careful that the person you purchase from on ebay is an authorized seller. If they aren't then the warranty will not be valid.

Thanks for sharing Kathy. I am hoping to play with the trial later today. Then I'm sure I will be pushed off that very small space on the fence that I am sitting on. Another thing I said I didn't need/want. Oh well. I have already been imagining the possibilities.

Bump,Bump, Bump...I do think it gives the small bug some of the features of the E bug, I just like that you can mix the carts. I played with adding stuff from other carts and was able to make the MM scallopedcircle into an Oval and Put a J from George inside of it. I know being able to play with all the features of all the carts is going to make me want more carts...Thats for sure

If you have a cart selected. At the top of the whole screen, click on preferences and then click on My Cartridge. Do this with all the carts you own. Then on the list of carts in the upper left box, you can show only the carts you marked as yours.
As much as I like to be enabled and be an enabler to others, it helped me to not look at other carts too much while playing with the program.
On the other hand, it does really help you see if something you think will work, does work.

Another quick note: The program will not allow the baby bug to cut smaller than 1". There is still a reason to get the eBug.

Did you try that because I was able to make the letters and shapes smaller than an inch in size I didnt try cutting it but I was able to make the #1 about to 1/4 of an inch. The sign feature on george does cut the letters as small as a quarter inch so I know the bug is capable of it.

It wouldn't let me on the screen. I will try it again.

OK, it won't let me default enter the letters that way. It will let me resize and make it smaller. I didn't try and cut it, I am not near my Cricut right now.
I still need the eBug. I need larger stuff too.

Here are the three I did this morning. Love it when the kids play without hurting each other.
I am so glad I got Basecamp. That one has come in handy. I even stamped on a couple of them. That is a big step for me. The baseball bat and background were stamped with the "sanded" BG and the shaped on the Nascar one were stamped with a retired shapes set. I even used my brayer to make the Nascar logo.
Great pages!!!! You did a great job on them!!!! I didn't realize that you'd made the Nascar logo - very cool! I love my basecamp cart too, it's sooo versatile.

This is exactly why I'm not downloading the trial software yet. I'm way to computer illiterate to figure it out on my own, LOL! My comp is about 6 or so years old, but I do have XP. It's a decent system, but I don't know any of it's particulars, lol. I'm just going to watch and learn from all of you who have the DS, LOL! But to use it, I'd have to leave my craft room in the basement and haul my bug and carts upstairs. That doesn't sound like fun.

How long is he being deployed for? Do you have family/friends close that can help out while he's away?

Wow, it took me awhile to catch up to you all! I've missed a lot in the past couple of days, lol! We're taking ds to see Santa this afternoon (at dh's kids Christmas party from his union). I'll be able to go downstairs in my craft room later this afternoon/early evening to work on more Christmas projects. It seems like the more I complete, the more I need to start - how is that possible!?! lol

Have a great afternoon ladies, and have fun with your DS!

Thank you! Can't wait to try it when I get a cord!

You can try it with your Printer cord if your printer is USB, I know mine will work.

Need some Paper Doll assistance. I finally got to try it for the first time today (and only one of the handful times on the new ebug, can you believe it?!). I noticed that on the accessories like the unicorn that you can't do a shadow blackout. Or can you and I am missing it? Also, the pictures show the adorable unicorn with several different colors on it. Has everyone been cutting out several unicorns in all the different colors and then cutting the image into smaller pieces and glueing it together to achieve the color combination wanted? It seems a little wasteful on the paper. Just wanted to make sure that was the only way that I could have several colors on an accessory.

good afternoon ladies I hope everyone is chirping today. I don't know who started this thread but it was a fabulous idea. I need just a little help. I had subscribed to the cricut chirp & now aol has somehow blocked it. Can some one give me the addy the exact way it comes from cricut. Also if any one can copy this months chirp & pm it to me I would be in your debt. thanks so much. Just bought some more cartridges I think I am addicted. Also who is Kim you are always talking about that you purchase from. thanks have a pleasant & chirpy day

How exactly does this work along with your cricut? Did you have to buy some special cable or something to attach to you computer? Thanks

I know being able to play with all the features of all the carts is going to make me want more carts...Thats for sure
I'm still on the fence. That's only because I haven't even had a chance to think about downloading the trial today. It has been a really busy day. My oldest DS had basketball from 11-1 and then my mom stopped over this afternoon to give my older DD her birthday present. She will be 9 on Monday. My mom just left so now I am trying to make dinner and catch up on here at the same time. I will probably wait until tomorrow to play. We are supposed to get freezing rain again. We are under a winter storm watch from tonight through tomorrow night. I think I will be homebound again. Oh well, at least I have an excuse to sit in front of the computer.

I finally successfully downloaded the trial version of the DSS. I have been trying for two days now!! I got it up and running on my laptop in The Pink Loft and it is soooo cool!! I don't know if I can wait to buy this. Who has it in stock? I will be able to do so many neat things with this. The welding feature alone is worth it! I'm so super excited!!!

I finally got it done. Last night I closed all my windows and tried again and it worked, but said it would be 2 hours (I think I posted that already??) and so I tried again today. I got the error message so I cancelled out the installation and tried again and it worked. I left it downloading the update while we went and got our tree. We got home, played with the dog for a while, came in, cleaned up, got the mail, got a bite to eat, and it was STILL finishing the installation! I opened it up but I am so dumb when it comes to programs like this so I quit. I tried again and quit again. I'll try again when I read up on it a little more.

We did make a paper doll today too and also a couple of christmas tags. The paper doll blackout didn't perfectly match the regular paperdoll shape. You could see the blackout a tiny bit behind the hands and feet. DD didn't care (it was a blueout-she wanted blue eyes on her paper doll).

I am just running the trial program right now. I used my printer USB cable to attach my laptop to my Cricut. In the Mini Monograms cartridge there is a scallop circle. There is a scallop oval on one of the other cartridges, but when you cut it out on the Cricut it makes a small hole in the top of the shape.
With the new Design Studio software you can stretch the characters. You can make them wider or taller than the standard input. So you can stretch the scallop circle to make it taller to look like an oval without the hole in the top.
I really like the stretching capability since the standard square is not always what you want either. Now you can make it a rectangle.
I wasn't able to cut out the oval, as I only have the trial version right now. You can only cut out with the cartridge that came with your Cricut.
I hope that answered your question.

I hate to tell you this, but when I went to actually cut with the Cricut and DS I had to download an update for the Cricut itself. It tells you how when you try to cut the first time. With DSL mine took about 5 minutes.

Thanks for the warning. It seems like this happens on so many things anymore. I got a fly pentop computer and I am having the worst time updating the software for it. I'm pretty much resigned to using only the software that's already on the pen and forgetting about adding any.
