Hello Kitty and her layers were cut at 3".
The inside cut at 1.5, font and shadow.
This bird is from SFTN cut at 1.5. I started to use the cartrdge sentiment, but it didn't cut well at the size I needed it, so I made a computer generated sentiment. I used pop dots between the shadow and the bird body and also on the wing for a little dimension.
Tomorrow I plan to share a few organizational ideas I use and also some handy tricks to make scrapping easier.
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
