Raggedy Ann

I was so excited about this little card.... beyond excited.... once I thought of it I couldn't think of anything else!!.... it all came about because of those adorable Magnolia stamps!!... I kept thinking....how can I make a paper doll from Paper Doll Dress Up sitting down.... how, how, how!!... it just wouldn't leave my head and when I started I wasn't sure at all that I could do it.... but it all turned out pretty good and I am so excited...I hope that you like it!! ~~ Jeannie
CRICUT
Paper Doll Dress Up
Doll and all her parts cut @ 2 3/4 inches...
I was thinking I cut it at 3 3/4 inches.... but got confused later...so if 2 3/4 doesn't work for you its the larger size after all.
Wagon cut @ 4 1/2 inches... 2 times once in red once in black.
Zoobaloos
Grass cut @ 1 1/4 inches on real dial size 2 times.
MARTHA STEWART
Butterfly Punch
PEACHY KEEN FACE STAMP
When I cut the legs out I trimmed off the shoe part and rounded each end...to look like the top of the knee... I took the black circles from the center of the wagon and trimmed off the top to make a sort of oval for the shoes.... to make them look like you were looking at them from the front ... cut these twice so that I could pop dot the top layer.....I cut the arms from the body so that I could position them the way that I wanted them.... and of course I cut the legs from the body.... I set the dress at the top of the wagon then added the legs to create the sitting effect!!
I kept thinking...these carts are all about paper piecing.... and I need to utilize that fact to the fullest of my ability... it would give me so many more options... it just got me all excited!

You're card is cute. I think so many girls/women will see it and have fond memories of their own Raggedy Ann Dolls. Mine was made by my mother. Made it better, just like home-made makes cards better. You rock.

I can see why you would be excited... this is SO adorable. And I love her shade (skin color). You have such a way with coordinating PP and incorporating such fun detail... I just love your work! TFS

Jeannie,

The doll came out so beautiful and cute at the same time. I love Tilda stamps too, so this is one way to duplicate it :)
