I just tried my hand at the beautiful January Mystical Winter LO & I need math help!! For the gutting out the papers process — For the first pp, I cut out the 11×11 center, this left a narrow 1/2 frame…then I cut away 1.5 on all four side for the 2nd pp — this left me with a 9 square that is obviously too small to layer on top of my 11 cut out — what point am I missing.March 3, 2012 at 10:15 pm #159367
hmmm….Ang may know the answer here. Or, there's a typo in the measurements. What you can do to save this is use the 11 x 11 and mount it on a cardstock background. Then layer the 9 x 9 on top of it. If you feel brave enough you could cut an 8 x 8 square out of the middle of the 11 x 11 so you can use it for other things.March 3, 2012 at 10:16 pm #159368March 3, 2012 at 10:43 pm #159369
Looks like you're right about a typo, Jan. But .5 would make another 11 square. Maybe Ang meant 1.0 inches for a 10 square?March 3, 2012 at 11:37 pm #159370
Hi Deb, I think what you have to do is actually cut out a 10 inch square from the middle of the first 12×12 piece. So You would measure in towards the middle 1 from each side to cut the center out. On your second sheet of paper (which will go on top of the first one) you will then cut a ½ from each side off of of the paper which then gives you a 11 square. Then when you laid that piece on top of the first piece you would have a ½ border around that piece. Does that make sense – or have I confused you even more, lol.March 4, 2012 at 10:58 pm #159372
Deb, I did this layout with these Bo Bunny papers last night, using the cutting that I mentioned above and it worked out okay. This is a photo of my son taken last weekend while they were up at Whistler Mountain (where they had the Olympics in 2010) snowmobiling.March 5, 2012 at 2:43 am #159373March 5, 2012 at 5:32 am #159374March 5, 2012 at 2:10 pm #159371March 5, 2012 at 2:47 pm #159375
THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!!!
Steph, I tried it again w/your measurements and it worked out great!! And your LO is lovely. I'm going to get some type of butterfly die w/i the next few days & then I'll be on my way :0). Thanks so much again to all of you! Deb.March 5, 2012 at 4:50 pm #159376
Oh crap! Let me go see what I did wrong!! BRB!!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."March 5, 2012 at 4:57 pm #159377
I'm sooo sorry!!! It's cut 1/2 and inch from the second paper. I went ahead and fixed it!!!
Thank you for helping out girls!
