Here’s a glimpse of what I made!

I’m excited to share with you today my project made with  
Cricut’s Paper Doll Teen Scene Cartridge
And Storybook Cartridge.
To Start off today I thought you might like a look at this amazing cartridge.

   J RECIPE FOR SUCCESS J
For the Doll and Purse
Cut 1 of each at 7 ½”
Hair –Brown
Body- Skin Tone
For the eyes to Show- White
For the eyes – Black
Cut 2 layers of each at 7 ½”
Bangs- Brown
Shirt- Teal
Leggings, shoes, vest- Black
Cut 1  skirt at 9” ( I personally wanted the skirt covering the mid-drift so I chose to cut it larger)
You Should have these pieces
 





Let’s do some Inking to really make her Look Stand OUT!!!
There are two different sized skirts because I couldn’t decide which to use at the start of my project. You’ll later notice I choose the larger of the two

Now we can assembly the doll, using normal adhesive to put all pieces together.

If you notice her mid drift shows so I actually cut a skirt at 9” instead of 7 1/2”
After the use of normal adhesive I decided I really wanted a dimensional doll so I went for the use of 3m Pop Tape and added it to the backs of all remanding doll pieces.
 





Here she is completed :
Here is a side view.

I couldn’t find any ribbon to match for a bow for her purse so I used Theresa Scrapbook Queens Twine and inked it.  For the perfect look!!!!
AWESOME right!!!!!
For The Lettering I used Cricut Storybook Cartridge


J RECIPE FOR SUCCESS J
For the Lettering and Frame
Cut shadow letters 1 time at 2 ½”
Cut the layer letters 2 times at 2 ¾”
Cut the shadow for picture at 5 ¼”
Cut the layers 2 times at 5 ¼”

Here’s what you should have: Before Inking

After Inking:

 Frame Pieces: Inked already





Now let’s add some Pop tape to the back of 2 sets of layer letters and frame layers!

Time To Put Letters And Frame Together!






The frame Pieces put together: Notice how they Look 3 D.


Remember to leave the top of frame OPEN for future Photo!

So you might think this is the finished Project
but with the way I LOVE BLING this couldn’t be done yet!
    Let’s add some BLING!

Here is my finished Project!

Crafting With this thought in Mind :
Consider keeping this piece from the center of the frame to use as a pattern for cutting your photo ! Usually I just leave it inside with the scrapbook page inside the page protector until I find the right photo!



  Guess what I found the perfect photo to complete my project! So with much pride, I present my completed project with a photo of My 13 year old Melissa Who I think is always STYLIN!!!!
