I Don't Think This Is Going Away!

So I have a friend who recently moved and with all this creativity flowing over the course of Cutting Above's Gypsy give-away, I thought I would use that inspiration to send some love to my dear friend. Yep, I SUDDENLY understand why everyone's so excited about the Gypsy. I went through 1 WHOLE piece of 12 x 12 paper to cut ONE frame that would fit this card! Pretty annoying! I envisioned designing the ENTIRE project on the Gypsy screen while I was waiting for my car to get serviced and had to sigh at the imagined "hills are alive" moment in my head. I CANNOT WAIT to have that moment in real life, where I return home, hit cut and everything is perfectly proportioned and cut right on the mat the first time. That by itself is going to be crazy good. Now, I've been told, that you can do the same "planning" on the design studio. I do not have design studio so I'm going to have to take everyone's word, but from what I HAVE heard, the Design Studio is not as mobile since you have to be at a computer to use it. And since I don't think this craving to create is going anywhere any time soon, I'm thinking total mobility is the way to go. This much I already know, when making a slide card like this... winging it wastes A LOT of paper when you don't have Design Studio OR the Gypsy. And THIS particular paper is one of my favorites! I almost shed a tear! Come to me my Gypsy!!!

Well, anyway, here is the video I watched with the WONDERFUL instructions to make this card. It's from the Scor-it (another little toy that I desperately need) website. I followed the instructions exactly and my card turned out AMAZING!!!! As always, click on the pics to enlarge. This one is fun, and will be "funner" when my Gypsy gets here!!! :)
