For my project I made a card using the "Picture That" set

I used the smallest picture frame and made a shaker out of it.  Okay I don't own a silhouette YET! but I figured out a way to cut a frame using my gypsy. It was actually pretty easy. The actual stamp is 1-5/8 L x 1-7/16. So you'll want to make the frame about 1/4 bigger using a rectangle. Okay easy enough :) Now the hard part, you must center a square in the correct place for the stamp to line up. Well if you own a cricut and a gypsy - you're in luck I did the work for you. So using the George cart create a rectangle at 1.75w x 1.84h and inside square 1.23w x 1.14h. The only part I can't help with is the actual placement of the center. But if you play with it and get it to look close to position on the screen then you can move it a bit after you cut it. I hope that makes sense, you can always email me I can try to help further :) 

After that part was done, I made my shaker and added some fun sequins a CDD sentiment from Simply Said. The paper is from American Crafts paper pad. 

Next up on the Line-Up is Karen with another FANTASTIC project!!
