  19. Your layouts and lists of supplies are the best of the best. I hate to ask for anything extra, but the size of cutouts would be so great. I do not mean to be an ungrateful fan. I spent 2 days getting sized right on the 2's Company 3's a Hoot. I love, love your work, you are a genius!!

  20. I'm so sorry ladies not to be able to give you the exact cut sizes cause I stretch everything to fit using my cricut design studio..
