Simply Sent App – now available for Android

Remember this that I created using the iPhone app?

Well we now have a Simply Sent app for Android as well!

From your Android device, go to the Google Play Store. Search for Simply Sent, select the application, select install and follow the prompts.

As a reminder for iPhone: Download it from iTunes or the App Store.

Now I’m an iPhone user so I haven’t been able to test the Android version but I’m guessing that it has the same features as I shared before.

Why not have a play and send out a thank you for any Easter gifts you received today Smile

Merry Christmas!

Hello all and a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!

My message was made using the iPhone app, so if you got the iPhone for Christmas then why not download the free app for it?

Here’s a sweet little Christmas message from Stampin’ Up!

I hope that Santa and his elves brought you all you wished for (but if he didn’t then maybe I can help you out with any craft items that fell off the sleigh on the way Wink just email me or give me a call on 0775 1133886).

iPhone app crafting

I’ve been playing at crafting on my iPhone today. Stampin’ Up! have brought out an iPhone app – how cool is that? And it’s free! 

Now, it’s never going to replace “proper” crafting for me. I’m a tactile sort of person, I like to feel the textures of the papers, ribbons, embossing etc. But, for those times when all I’ve got is my phone with me, it’s kinda fun!

To find it, first go to the the App Store on your iPhone, tap on Search and type in “Simply Sent”. You should see the little logo at the top of this post and it’s Simply Sent, by Stampin’ Up! in the Lifestyle category. Then tap on Install.

The iPhone app allows you to create an e-card—from a template or completely from scratch —and send it via e-mail or post it on Facebook or Twitter.

There aren’t any real instructions for it (and I could do with some!) but you won’t break it by playing around Laughing Swipe left to access the “menu”. Working down from the top, you have:

  • templates (predesigned ecards)
  • backgrounds (a set of different colours/patterns)
  • photos (direct from your camera or album)
  • embellishments (buttons, ribbon, punches, washi tape)
  • text (type it in and choose a font)
  • sharing (email, Facebook, twitter)
  • save (to your photo album)
  • delete (to start over)
  • gridlines (that you can switch on/off)
  • info (just the logo really)

Here’s the e-card I made earlier 😀

If you have an iPhone, then why not download it and have a play – there’s nothing to lose, it’s totally free and who knows, it might work as inspiration to make a “real” card Laughing
