So I was minding my own business *okie thinks...as I always do* and working on a layout for this week's Old Cricut Community scrapbook layout challenge and when I went to cut the title it wouldn't work! I was trying to use Celebrate With A Flourish and it just wouldn't register for some reason. I was using my jukebox and I pushed the button and it showed up on the screen of the Expression as if it was reading it but....NOTHING.
I turned off the Cricut, took the cartridge out of the jukebox and put it in the slot in the E and tried it that way....NOTHING.
I shut down Design Studio, turned of the E, took the cart out. I put the cart back in, turned Design Studio back on, wait for it to boot up...took Lucy out to potty....came back in and waited for Design Studio to finish booting up, turned on the E. Opened my design. Hit cut and....NOTHING!!
By this time I was major stressing because I had tried everything I knew to try and it just wouldn't register. I wondered if the cartridge was bad and decided to try and cut the title without Design Studio. I quickly learned that I have no idea what the hell all those buttons were on the dang Expression! I dug out my overlay from my storage boxes and put it on the E and then still couldn't find the dang cut. I finally clicked on "show cartridge" in Design Studio and found out what button I needed to push.
I pushed the wrong button and then found the correct buttons to push and then hit cut. I'll be dang it started cutting...but one thing was wrong! It started cutting the other image I had pushed previously. I was in a panic and didn't know what to do so I just let it cut. I was really scared what was going to happen as I cut the other layers so I turned off the Cricut each time to make sure the previous cut was gone and out of the memory.
I did finally get all the layers cut, even though some of the colors are a little different than what I originally wanted but there is no way I am going to go back and try to do that dang thing again.
Sadly I must admit, which I have admitted before, but I am totally serious this time....I CAN'T USE THE FREAKING CRICUT WITHOUT DESIGN STUDIO!! If I had to use those buttons again I swear I could go on mental disability for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder!! *okie decides she needs to go lay down and maybe call the doctor tomorrow about getting a prescription of valium to calm her nerves*
