Welcome James Samuel

We received the wonderful news that our friend and fellow scrapbooker Adela, had a healthy 7lb 5oz baby boy on Friday. His name is James Samuel. Congratulations Adela and Liam. The card is on it's way.

Following on from yesterday's post about the Cricut Magazine, here are two more cards inspired by Mimi Panormios the February / March Issue. This time I found a new use for an old favourite and used the 'New Arrivals' Cartridge.

I made the two cards simultaneously because I had cut the little boats for one card I had enough shapes for both. Using the Card feature on the cartridge I was able to cut two 5x5" cards from a sheet of 12x12" white Bazzill. The papers are both Magnolia - So Jolly, Wrapped Plaid and Bon Voyage, New England.  I used scraps of ribbon and buttons from my stash and all the papers are inked with chalk inks.

 The boat is an aperture cut in the front of the card and the patterned paper is stuck to the inside back of the card.

Inside the cards.

Both Cards together 

Congratulations on the birth of James Samuel.
