    Cute hedgehogs! Have a great time at CHA…keep us posted.
    BTW, have a Gypsy question…about making sure the shadow layer and the top layer in a title are the correct “proportional” size for each other…is there a technical way or do you just drag it over top and try to line them up???

  12. Dorothy helmkay says:

    Love the card. Will have to try to make it. I haven’t tried to do alot of cutting out with my cricut. I am new at it

  13. What an adorable card. Thanks for sharing Megan

    Great tutorial. I’ll have to work up my courage to try a layout like that…you made it look easy. Thanks for sharing. Carolyn

  15. Thank you so much Megan for doing these tutorial! They are so helpful. I have your DVD and go to it often but I love when you do one on your blog. I know it must take you some time and I really do appreciate what you do.
    Crafty Hugs,

  16. thank you so much for this tutorial…I had seen it done before, but your explanations were fabulous…especially about Fit to Page.

  17. Melissa says:

    Very cute card. I can hardly wait for your
    post fro CHA. :•}

    This is an adorable card – thank you for taking the time to make the video tutorial.

    I recently purchased both of your DVDs – Cricut A to Z and Gypsy A to Z. I must say they are both very well done and packed with information and ideas. I’ve used my Cricut E for a while and finally figured out most of it on my own, yet I still learned a few tips I could use. How I wish I’d had the Cricut DVD when I was struggling to learn by trial and error! The Gypsy DVD is fantastic – the step by step explanations of all the buttons and icons priceless. The downloadable project files are great too. Thank you and Tammy for welding my bond with my little G, by helping me better understand her and how she thinks! 😀 Now my Cricut cartridges rarely see the light of day but my G is always within reach when I am in my studio.

  19. Neat card. Makes me want to run right out and buy the cartridge.

  20. Sharon from Pa says:

    Have fun Megan and the card is adorable.

  21. Vickie Lee says:

    Such an adorable card. Thank you so much for explaining everything so clear. It was so helpful. Have fun at CHA!

  22. Cute oh so cute card! Thanks for going over the basics again. I think we need to be have things gone over once in awhile when it comes to basics. No matter how much expereince you have you can always learn something new/old from you. Thanks a lot Megan … Have fun in Chicago!

  23. Marilyn says:

  25. Dorothy says:
