In my post from a few days ago I had mentioned how much I enjoyed the Cricut Imagine because of its ability to cut layers from printed images. All of the cards I posted in 2010 were made with the Imagine. I was so sad - even mad - when PC discontinued the machine and no more cartridges were made. Well, imagine my surprise today when I did the Hot Fix for the DS update earlier this week and now I am able to use all those cartridges again the way the were originally intended! Yes!! The Explore and DS will now print, layer and cut all of my favorite images from the Imagine cartridge library. I am beyond thrilled and have now officially forgiven PC/Cricut for all of their previous offenses.

Why get excited over being able to use cartridges that are 5 years old? I never did really explore my way through all of them so there is undiscovered territory. It's also like being reunited with an old friend. The cartridges have been lined up on my shelf, unusable for years and now they have come to life again. Oh happy day!
