Today finally I decided to use my photoapp

which has been sitting idle since the day of the Christmas update.
You all know I was supposed to be already in India by now but have nt yet made it there yet because of some complications.
Yesterday I wallowed in self pitying indulgence and refused to go out anywhere even for dinner as I did not want to meet anybody!!! I wanted to behave like a kid and not an adult and my family indulged me - ha ha and let me behave like a kid. So by evening I was better. Sometimes this helps more than chocolates. Next time I am also going to get some cheap crockery and assign a place where I can break it. That must help even more don't you think?.Hmmm. good idea..
well today i was in the mood for designing. Still indulgent (I will not apply the term lazy :) ) to go up and cut anything but felt I can design simple mindless designs where I just place the images on a mat and decided the cartridge which can be so honored would be create a critter.
Now I d have the peachy keen stamps and decided I am going to use that. Now all the layers - grrrr... . In this mood - thought in the brain - "gosh! what in heavens are they all?" . So I just added all of them in the mat. ok now for the color - hmmm I am going to cut all in white and decide what I am going to do with them. Maybe use the tons of distress inks I have or the even more watercolors I have. Ok but what colors where and what layers go on what top . S as I was sitting in front of the laptop or rather lying down with the laptop on me decided to check out the sampler sheets at the site - cricut - information - cartridge library. Nw in the database that comes up there are 3 rows - 1st row cartridge name - 2nd row sampler and 3rd booklet. Now clicking on the sampler got me jpg file so I decided to save it and load it in my photo app. well easy to refer while designing. But remember one thing if you have iphone do it with that as you can see the photos only as big as the screen even when full screen option is chosen. bt since my eyesight is ok I can manage to get the gist..
well so since I was downloading this I decided to get some tricky cartridges to me also like robotz etc. Now when you click view ie 2nd row in some of them they turn up as pdf files.
oh oh! can't be loaded . But then I had a bright idea!! The products section has the sampler as images!! And here is the real easy thing as clicking on the 1st row ie the cartridge name itself takes you to the product section, Clever of PC isn't it. They want us t buy the cartridge so they take us right to the product section.. well anyway I checked out images and downloaded some more and then uploaded all of them (not all cartridges but those I wanted) to my G and now I can create away. I have to make do with this till November when I can get my iphone..
So critter's here I come..

So sorry about your trip to India. I often revert back to being a kid too when I'm disappointed and it's so wonderful having a hubby who indulges me. And, I'm not ashamed afterwards, I feel so much better!!! Besides I deserve it! LOL!
