The First Few Years layout

Hello Fanatic friends. Cindy here from Scrap-obsessed.blogspot. I recently purchased the new Cricut cartridge called The First Few Years. I am loving the layout ideas and how simple it is to get everything cut out because the booklet tells you exactly what size to cut each piece. I started at the beginning with the first layout.

My son and daughter in law just announced they are going to have another baby girl. She is due in October, so I thought it would be nice to have some layouts ready for her arrival. All of the cuts are from the First Few Years cartridge except for the butterflies. I made those using a couple of punches from Stampin' Up. All of the purple and gray papers are from Stampin' Up. I also used Wisteria Wonder ink to sponge the edges of each piece.

Cut sizes:
Photo mat 9.75"
Banner on top 2.25"
Title 1"
Baby Carriage 3"
Circle under carriage 2"
Tags on the left side were both cut at 2.25"

I hope you like my project today and will stop by my blog for future layouts from this cartridge.
