Little Boys and Little Girls

A while back, someone made a card with mason jars depicting what little boys and girls were made of......I loved it! It stayed in the back of my mind until I got an idea of how to make a layout with this concept. I used lots of Cricut cartridges on these pages.

Baby Boy: Paper is from the Bambino collection (Daisy D's) and the checked paper is American Crafts. Used SYI for the jars, cut once regular cut on brown and acetate....once on brown silhouette. The cap is cut from gold foil. The snake is from Animal Kingdom....the snail is hand-done (I so need Walk in my Garden.....)....and the puppy dog tails are hand cut/decorated as well. Jar labels and "are made of" are computer generated, cut out with decorative edging scissors and inked. "Little" is Mickey font...."Boys" is Pooh font (Marker). I added a few buttons here and there. The baby head is Doodlecharms as is the puppy. The puppy is cut on black blackout, brown regular, and tan shadows. Mouth is hand-drawn and his cheeks are inked. Wiggly eyes on baby and puppy.

Little Girl: Paper is Sweet Baby Jane Collection from Daisy D's. Sugar is snow glitter, spice is red glitter, and everything nice is a butterfly punch, a heart rub-on, and a George flower inked with gel pens. Labels and "are made of" are done the same way......"little" is Pooh font....."girls" is Alphalicious. Added some flower shaped buttons here and there. Baby head from Doodlecharms and also the cat. Cut dark pink blackout, light pink regular cut...and dark pink layers. Chalked cheeks on both and added wiggly eyes.
