Gypsy video - Episode 5 - Wordbook Type 2

I made a Type 2 Wordbook (where the frame dimensions vary and the image can take up the whole frame)
Here are some pictures

The cartridge used were - George and Basic Shapes &  Happily Everafter.
The frame size are 1st frame - 4" x 4" and the kneeling cinderella - 3.5"
2nd frame - 6"(width) x 4" (height) and cinderella going to the ball - 4"
3rd frame - 8" x 4"
 The snapshot of the template file is

As I mentioned in the previous video. I have cut each page 3 times - once for chipboard, once for front, and once for back either flipped or placing the paper with pattern you need face down on the mat.
After that just ink and embellish.
For the images I chose to use cricut markers. (Will show you in the next video )
For the kneeling cinderella I cut one image  ( put in marker once and then cut again) and colored with gel pens but for the other two  I cut thwice - one markered image  and the other with the lacy pattern paper. I snipped down the lacy paper to form just the dress. And then I glued everything down. Inked the edges and added rhinestones,  some decorative chipboard and gold outline stickers (and colored inside them with gel pen). I also made some extra pages - 6 sheets (4x 4) and 6 sheets (6x 4) . Punched everything with bigbites ( cropadile) and added some book rings and ribbons.
Here is the video

Pam! I just got my gypsy a few weeks ago and honestly had no clue what to do except weld words! Your videos are really fantastic and you do a great job of explaining things. The only thing I am not understanding is "aspect ratio." Can you explain that to me?

Cynthia - aspect ratio is the proportion - the height to width. The images are always is a particular proportion and when chain below the width and height is golden then they remain in proportion and if you change the height the width changes too. But when you tap on the link and so unlink it you can change just the height .
