Ladybug punch around the page and Sweetheart frame

I was bored today. Wanted to create something but didn't want to use my brains that much and just wanted to play with the G. So here is what I came up with
First one is Ladybug punch around the page. I saw this in Martha Stewart punches but did not want to buy one. So I keyword searched and got one image which I liked from walk in the garden. I just added some circles for spots and cut. Disaster!!!! The antenna were all ripped. I did not want the lady bug any bigger so I used the shadow feature and recreated. The file is available for download  but remember the cartridge used is walk in my garden. If you don't have it do not download. I mention upfront on the link itself what the cartridge is. Usually I do not mention GW or GF as it comes with all gypsies.
Here is the picture

Well the 2nd project was for the Gypsy challenge actually - mirror challenge. So I just welded four corners from sweetheart. This image even though it has just 4 welds takes quite a while to cut so preview and preferably have it connected to AC power before cutting. Cartridge - sweetheart. you can resize just a tad but not too much as the cuts are intricate. This goes for just the image itself - as it is - from the cartridge too. Some images do need to be large else the intricate cuts will tear. But what fun layout this will make. I left room for title and I am going to add this on a layout. That's why I cut in blue. Having boys I can always use blue.
File is available too. I will post this as it is on Friday.

So hope you liked my no brainer projects.

Both are adorable.... just think of all the cards you can make with both of them.... I love the ladybug one for the summer but I can see the other on a title page in a scrapbook! Thanks for sharing.

These are wonderful. The marching ladybugs are cute. I will try this for a granddaughter's layout, she loved ladybugs when she was younger. The lacy frame I can see using that on granddaughters layouts, especially the new one.

Both projects are great. I love the ladybug but do not have a Walk in the Garden. I am going to try this on some of the images I do have. TFS
