Using the Designer's Calendar Cricut Cartridge I cut the "July 4" and "Independence Day," sizing it to fit the empty space with the Design Studio. For "2009," I used the George & Basic Shapes cart, and welded the numbers together in Design Studio to create a solid date.

Red, White & my baby's Blue's
And so it has begun...my 2 1/2 year old's baby book has pages!!! I was so overwhelmed with the amount of pictures, mementos & paper I had to chose from, that I had a really hard time figuring out where to begin. I ended up starting with a simple holiday layout, 4th of July! I started with a very busy background paper, so I wanted to keep the matting & embellishments very clean and simple. I used only black & white "frames" for the matting around the pictures, and added a little bit more color with a patriotic red, white & blue theme for the simple words/numbers/journaling matting. I played around with some stars I punched out and covered in glitter, but it ended up looking messy...sometimes less is more!
