First Food with Early Bird

I made the cards after finishing with my layout. I just used the scraps and some leftover stickers. It was easier than I thought.

This is my "First Food" page created with the Early Bird line by Cosmo Cricket. I had a lot of fun working with the paper, stickers and borders from the line. It was all so cute I wanted to use every bit of it. I cropped 6 pictures to 3 7/8 x 3 7/8" squares. I embellished with borders and strips of patterned paper. I mounted the utensil sticker on card stock and used pinking scissors for the edges. I was trying to cover a can of Comet behind my daughter so I punched out half a circle from the picture and placed the sticker there. I mounted the stickers on the bottom right side onto card stock then punched a tiny hole in the top. I used a staple to hook the stickers onto the loops of the ribbon. (I had some old beading pliers I used to bend the staples.) The stickers are just hanging from the ribbon loops and not adhered to the paper. The letters were cut out on the Cricut. Fun fun fun.

Pin It!

Great job Leah! Love how you used the stickers like charms! And the hanging them with staples is so smart. Your cards are really fun and I can't wait to get some of this cute paper!

I love this layout and really love the cards. Your daughter is a cutie too! I appreciate how you detail your process for us. I look forward to getting more ideas from you in the future!

Leah you rocked this new line! I really like your clever use of the stickers hanging from staples! I love it when elements are "free" to move or are outside the "borders" of a page! Great job!
