Hello friends! This is my week to choose the theme of the Cricut Challenge at the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog. We all know that I am totally besotted with my new granddaughter with my world revolving around all things Avaleigh! It was very easy for me to select a theme for this week's Cricut Challenge - NEW BABY CHALLENGE (of course)! I challenged the Design Team (and our readers) to create a card, layout, home decor project, or other NEW BABY ITEM. I chose to create a two page layout featuring my favorite little baby girl!
I used four Cricut Cartridges to create these two pages - Baby Steps, First Few Years, Creative Memories Stork's Delivery, and Anna Griffin's Elegant Embellishments. I confess that I have really been enjoying the Anna Griffin cartridges recently. I love the elegant, versatile cuts. I cut the scalloped backgrounds of both pages with Elegant Embellishments. I used Anna Griffin card stock (floral) for the top layer of the background and (blue) for the bottom layer of the background. Other card stock used is Close To My Heart solids and scraps from my stash.
I used this adorable double layer rattle on the left page, along with sheer ribbon and pink pearl swirls. I also used the sweet baby girl three layer cut as a title on this page.
The right page has two Cricut cut embellishments, the sleeping baby and the baby blocks. I added pink pearls and a pink bow to the baby cuts and used pop dots to adhere the embellishment to the page.
I hope that each of you will go by the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog and look at the other new baby projects created by the design team. Also, consider joining us this week. This is a fun challenge, if I do say so myself!!
