"Easter Chicks" 12x12 Double Layout

Edit: This project was featured on Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog's Scrappin' Saturdays!

This is a 12"x12" double layout that was created primarily with the A Child's Year cartridge. The silhouettes on this cartridge can be a bit of challenge for me because I usually prefer the look of layered cuts but I think they worked well the with pastel colors and Springy feel of this layout.

This layout features three 4"x6" photo mats.

I used the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace punch to create a lacy border around my green cardstock and then layered this onto hot pink cardstock.

The title is cut from the Cindy Loo cartridge at 1.75" and 1.25"; the date is cut from the A Child's Year cartridge at 1.25".

The first silhouette was cut at 5".

I cut two daffodil borders at 2" each; the first one was used as is and the second was cut with the "flip" option and hand altered. The easter eggs were cut at 1.75".

The second silhouette is cut at 5.5" and embellished with a tiny bow. Both chicks are cut at 2" and the bunnies are cut at 2.25".

The daffodil is cut at 3.75", the Easter eggs are cut at 2" and the third silhouette is cut at 4".

Finally, I used the tag feature and a stamp to create a small journaling spot. The tag is cut at 2.25" and embellished with a matching ribbon.

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: A Child's Year and Cindy Loo
Martha Stewart Around the Page Border Punch: Eyelet Lace
Paper: K&Company - Kelly Panacci and Recollections cardstock
