Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #146- Time Flies

Hello, once again.  Today, I am posting my entry for the FCCB challenge.  I got behind on my youngest son's First Year scrapbook.  Most of the book was completed before he arrived, but I had not completed pages for January or October.  All the other months were completed and almost all the major milestones were completed in advance, but those two had me stumped.  I took this opportunity to complete the January page.  This is what I came up with.
I used the Designer Calendar cartridge for the January title, the Celebration cartridge for the hat, Elegant edges & Plantin Schoolbook for the photo matting that I created, and the Plantin Schoolbook & Tags 1 cartridge for the Top Five Tags.  I used the MCT gift card die to create the pocket for the Top 5 tags.  I embossed part of the card before I cut the die and I inked the embossing with some blue ink.  
Those tags are to write down a few of the special things.  January was a monumental month.  He took his first steps and we are starting to see more of his personality.  The flag paperclipped to the pocket is a die cut from MCT and so are most of the stamped sentiments.  I haven't put the picture in the blue matting but I will as soon as I get my photos printed.  I used a bookmark index card that I bought at WalMart (if I remember correctly).  There are 5 different colors of cards and these may come in handy for journaling.   
Looking at the index card now, I will probably distress the edges.  I didn't cut out a clock image with my Cricut.  I decided to stamp and emboss some clock faces.  The stamps were Tim Holtz.  I just cut them out and used glue dots to place them.  I added a flag at the last minute with Good Times stamped on it.  I had so much fun with this layout.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the layout.


  1. Super cute, I like all the bright colors! Thanks for joining us at FCCB this week!!

  2. I love this page Margaret! I especially love way you have placed the swirley red embellisment. I love how bright and colorful the page is, and how you have adapted all the colored papers to match with the main paper. I am totally impressed that you had this baby book pretty much done before your baby was born! You must be a very organized mom...what a wonderful gift!

  3. Great page! It's full of details and color, I love that! So precious!

    Thanks for joining us at FCCB this week!!
