The details on this video about how you got your layers were wonderful. I went back and looked carefully at the Gypsy screen shots and found them so helpful too. You are a clear teacher--thank you so much for sharing. I hope your kids have many blessed years together.

Sharon said...

It looks like you could just walk up to the door and enter the cafe! The details are awesome!! Happy Anniversary to Madison and Cory!! Have a blessed, safe and happy 4th!! :)

Another winner! What an awesome card. Would really love to try this, but do not have the cri-kits. So hope I can win. Thanks again for sharing all of your blessings.

Stephanie said...

I love your instructions, they are so detailed and you present in such a way that "we" can understand them. I don't have the pens, although I would love to, but maybe I could try something similar with the markers. Thanks to you I finally understand about the layers on the gypsy.

MsJay said...

I am so impressed with this card. You are such a creative genius. All your information on how to do the different layers was just fascinating. Now I feel like I can be a pro too.

These video's are so great. I think I could probably try this now. If I can just find the time. Good luck to everyone in the contest.
The card is in my favorite black & white.

Wow, thanks Jeannie for a great explanation on how to cut on the Gypsy after using the pens! Also, the little paper is a great tip - I know for sure I would not have done that and would have written all over my card!! Beautiful, and thanks for the chance to win these - I've had my eye on them for a long time!!!

Jeannie, Thanks for all the tips regarding the layers with tht gypsy. I haven't played too much with that feature yet. I adore the card, and love the idea of drawing some aspects of cards! Thanks for sharing.

Kate said...

Jeannie - I made a card using your technique!! I have tried three times to link it, but the link is not working. Perhaps because there are two links on the same posting? (I did try both.) Anyway, I am commenting here again as I want to be sure you know that all your instructions fell on eager ears!! My card is here: I'll try and link again later.
Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic idea!!

Jeannie, Thanks for sharing all of your "creativeness" with us not so creative people. I get so much inspiration from you!!! This card is absolutely beautiful. I have wanted to try the markers for some time but not sure how to. I feel you put this in simple instructions just for me!!!!

Thank You again


Kate said...

Success!! Thank you so much for fixing that. I was just so excited to share my creation with you and to thank you for sharing your wonderful idea with me!!

Maureen said...

Thank you so much for posting your videos. I just got my gypsy and you make it easy to follow your instructions. Drawing instead of cutting adds another dimension to card making that I would love to try.

Alice said...

Happy Anniversary to Madison and Cory
wishing them all the happiness for many more anniversaries to come

Great job Jeannie! I have often wondered about the Cri-kits and now you have shown how easily can be used =)


Laura said...

Thanks for a wonderful video. It was great it understand how do all the layers. The Cri-kits looks great on the card.

Happy Anniversary to your daughter and and son-in-law! Blessing to them in the years ahead.

Jeannie- your cards are always wonderful!!!

Colleen said...


Thank you sooooo much for the detailed explanation of how to create the different layers for this card. I especially appreciated the way you explained how clicking the "eye" would toggle the different layers off and on. These cri-kits look to be a great new tool to use with the Cricut!!!

Thank you for sharing your talents!

Happy First Anniversary to your daughter and son-in-law!

CraftsManda said...

This card is stunning. I love your videos, and how you do a screen shot of how your mat is set up. That is so helpful to me and I always look forward to what you are going to make next! Thanks for the tip on putting a piece of paper between your mat and blade while switching to your pens. You are a wonderful teacher, and I'm off to check out the pens! Thank you Jeannie. You're amazing!!

Kathleen said...

This was amazing!! I have watched closely both videos now and have learned so much. I love your tip on putting scrap paper under the pen when adding and removing. That is something I probably wouldn't have thought of until after I ruined my cutting lol. That was a great tip!!!! I also love the mat shots of how you lay out and to choose Add to design. I hope to be the lucky one so I can give these a try. Thanks for the chance to win.

I really enjoyed watching your videos on the cri-kits pens. I kept seeing them on your new cards and didn't know what they were. They really look neat. I was sorry that I was too late to win them. I have design studio, I wonder if they would work the same with it. Thanks again for the videos, very helpful.
