First and most importantly thank you all so much for your prayers this past week! … They mean so so much to me!… Hugs to you all!!

This is my BBTB2 Design Team card for this week ….. We were to use the dress form cut from Forever Young… and this is what I came up with… the paper I used did all the work on this card… so the layout is very simple… the paper is from Tim Holtz and there is a picture of the paper pack on my video…. Be sure and check out the other beautiful projects the design team made over at BBTB2... Thank you so much for stopping by to see my card!… Hugs, Jeannie

CRICUT & GYPSY
Forever Young
Dress Form and its layer… I cut two of the top layer cut @ w 1.58 x h 4.30 … on the Cricut I would cut these @ 4 ¼ inches.

I used my paper trimmer to cut the frames piece for the pictures…the pictures came from the paper pack… and were perfect for this card… I could just see these ladies making their pretty dresses using a dress form… the pictures were 1 x 1 ¼ inches…so I cut the frames ¼ an inch wider and taller at 1 ¼ x 1 ½..

Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾… these cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.




The large square and the smaller square were placed on the mat as a guide for me so I would know if the pictures once framed were going to fit on the page....and if the dress form would fit beside them...I deleted these before cutting.

Nana Donna thank you again...I wanted to make card today and my mind was just blank...then I decided to go to the sketch challenge and try one of Donna's sketches again... I was happy how this turned out... its a fun card... you have to love a fun card!!... and it gave me a chance to you Create a Critter which I love but have not used very much.... I did not make a video this time... did a run through and just could not explain things clearly enough so I passed on a video this time...but do hope to make more in the future... thank you so much for looking ... love your comments... Hugs, Jeannie

CRICUT & GYPSY
Create a Critter
Lamb and its layers cut @ h 1.64 set the height and the width will be right on all cuts... I did leave out the second layer from the bottom..the one with the cut outs for the eyes and mouth because I wanted the lamb to be just black and white... ...so I left out that layer and drew the face on will a Jelly Roller white pen.....on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/2 inches.
Sentimentals
Scalloped circles (found on the charm option key) each cut on real dial size the large one cut @ h and w 2.91, the medium one cut @ h and w2.62, smaller one cut @ h and w 2.33... here is the trick I learned so I wouldn't have to figure out quarter inches when the cuts weren't in quarter inches... I started with the large scalloped circle at 3 inches...then I duplicated that and changed the size to 2.75 inches...then I duplicated that and changed the size to 2.5 inches... layered them on top of one another and grouped them...then I put these in the center of a rectangle the size of my background piece of paper... this you can delete before you cut.... I used the button that changes the size down until I got it the size I wanted...it kept all the scalloped circles in proportion and I didn't have to do the math... then you can ungroup the scalloped circles and move them were you want them on the mat.... on the Cricut I would cut the circles at 3 inches then 2 3/4 then 2 1/2 inches all on real dial size.
George
Circle cut on real dial size @ 1.99 inches... on the Cricut  I would cut this at 2 inches on real dial size.

Plantin Schoolbook
Scalloped edge cut @ w 2.99 x h 0.44... I welded two of these together... group them then go back and change your height to 4.75 inches.. this is the height of your background piece... on the Cricut I would cut 2 of these at 1/2 an inch and trim off the part I didn't need.
Wild Card
"ewe" cut @ h 1.89...set the height and the width will be right... move the letter where they overlap a bit and weld them together... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 3/4 inches.

Frame piece cut @ 4 x 5 1/3 inches
Striped paper cut @ 3 1.4 x 3 3/4 inches
