A Baby is Wonder, Hopes and Dreams

A friend of mine gave me this adorable paper last week, so I had to go back and print a couple pics of Kayson while he was in the hospital after he was born and do a page. Look how little he was! Sorry about the terrible picture quality, it's been raining for two days, so I couldn't take it outside.

The stars were cut from my Cricut.

And here's a Valentine's Day card I made using ALL Cricut. The two hearts were cut from George cart, bracket from Fabulous Finds, and letters from Alpha. Smile

LOVE your use of the stars - I think they really set off the photos (which are ADORABLE, btw). That valentine is really special too ... I may have to scraplift that one now! Smile

I absolutely love that baby page! I think the details of the buttons and stars really add a lot. You have a great style. Nice heart card, too!

Awww, Charys! that is so cute! You did a great job on using that paper. The stars turned out perfect. And yes, he was so little and sweet.

The valentine is great. Wish I could do all that!

I don't have the markers yet, so I just used a black ink pad and a q-tip to ink the edges. Do you have the markers? I've been looking at them and would love to get some!!

I have the markers but haven't used them yet! I love the way you outlined those letters!

How did you do the outlines of the stars with the cricut? With the center cut out?

on the George cart, you can actually outline anything with the "Silhouette" setting. You can do that with any of the shapes...hearts, stars, rectangles and all the letters. It cuts it out like that. I love that setting!!

Great lo and card. I love the stars. I saw the cricut markers at walmart, they had a set of black and then a set of colors.
