Love You ~ Altered Picture Frame

Designed by Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
Over at The Gypsy Spot we were to make altered picture frames... I could not imagine what I would do... after all I am a card maker.... what on earth was I going to come up with...then I thought... "oh I could make a "frame card."... then it was easy!!... and when I discovered this beautiful paper I knew exactly what I was going to do!!... I hope that you like it... be sure and visit the other Altered Picture Frames this week over at The Gypsy Spot... this will be its last week... Nilda has decided to give up this wonderful blog... we are going to miss her...and The Gypsy Spot!

Large Square cut @ w 8.0  x h 6.50 on real dial size and unlinked ...on the Cricut I would use a paper trimmer to cut this.
Small Square cut @ w 5.62  x h 3.50 on real dial size and unlinked ... on the Cricut I would cut this with an Exacto knife.
I cut these the sizes of the the size of the outside of the frame... the second one the size of the inside of the frame...don't weld so you will have a hole in the frame.
Doodle Charms
Sun cut @ w 4.22 x h 3.42... I cut two of these... on the Cricut I would cut this at 3 1/2 inches.
Pooh & Friends
Tufts of Grass cut @ w 1.96 x h 0.94 inches... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 inch.
Learning Curve
"ewe" cut @ h 2.69.. then I grouped them together...and made the total width of 4.49....on the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 1.2 inches.
Opposites Attract
"love" and its shadow cut @ w 4.49 x h 2.68....I welded the shadow to the "ewe"... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 2 1/2 inches...and glue the "love" shadow over the "ewe."
Animal Kingdom
Lamb and its layers cut @ w 2.85 x h 3.03... on the Cricut I would cut these at 3 inches.
Lamb Head cut @ w 1.89 x h 1.49.... if I were using the Cricut I would cut an extra lamb and cut the head from the body.
I did lots of popping... I popped the first lamb body in black from the background...then the second lamb with the white body piece adhered to it from the first black lamb piece... then I popped the white embossed lamb body from that...and popped the head from that and double popped the white tuft of hair from that.

The layers of waves for the grass were cut with a wave cutter... and each piece popped from the other with one piece glued inside the frame.

I am one of your newest follower, and new to the Cricut community. I think your cards are absolutely beautiful. I like to check your blog out for inspiration. I prefer making cards instead of scrapbooking.
Thank you!

Oh Jeannie,
What a wonderful frame. It's absolutely adorable. It's really sad to hear about The Gypsy Spot. Will you be returning to the cuttlebug spot? I am sad to hear about The Gypsy Spot as there are so many talented designers like yourself that show us so much for a newbie like me =)

I hope you are still enjoying the snow that you have and that you have saved a snowball =)
