Gypsy Episode 4 - Open Template feature

Just recovering from flu but decided to go ahead and do the video anyway. You can even see the dark circles under my eyes. Ugh!!
For this project - (I have coined this type of  wordbook  in my previous post as Type 1- where the basic frame has the same dimension throughout.) I used thin weight chipboard which I ripped from DCWV stack. But the approx thickness is equivalent to cereal box and is around .022 inches. Single cut with regular blade and housing. After I cut the extra letters b,a,b,y (2 sizes reduced from the welded original), I versamarked it and embossed it with Zing powder (Buttercup I think). I then added some ribbons on the book ring and on the pages a cute stroller ribbon which I picked up at Michaels. On the front page I made a small frame by using Paisley Nestability. For the wheel I didn't have a scalloped punch but had a punch from the Imaginisce brad maker, so I just punched a pattern paper and layered the wheel.  Later I will pick up some co-ordinating plain card stock and cut just the stroller and add it in between the chipboard pages and further add more embellishments and also finish inking the edges.
Here are the pictures of the wordbook

And here are the videos .

Thank you so much for the video. I have decided to keep my Gypsy and your video has helped me to understand how to make a wordbook. Keep up the great videos. I look forward to seeing more.

Thank you for a very informative and achievable lesson on making a wordbook using the Gypsy. I can't wait to try making my own now. Without teachers like yourself sharing your skills, my Gypsy could be living a lonely existance in a draw in my craftroom...so Thank you...thank you...thank you...

i'm watching all your tuts and learning a lot...but have a basic question. take your baby stroller and the first page *b*. you cut the stroller and letter (since it's welded) and it's one piece.
but to get the letter to be a different color than the color of the stroller you have to cut the stroller again separately, the letter again separately then glue them where they go right?
