I think we need a Cricut cartridge that allows you to piece together your own little kids like I did this little girl. You know... chubby little arms and little legs. You could choose outfits...then choose legs that let them stand, or sit or kneel...and different little arms and heads. Front facing and side facing...ok, you get the point. :) That's my wish for a cartridge.
She would also be cute on the front of a card
Recipe for this layout
DoodleCharms - basket & eggs 3 1/2"
A Child's Year - chick 2"
Easter 2010 - rabbit 2 1/2", lamb 3 1/4", title 2 1/2"
Christmas Noel - bow swag using Gypsy size swag to 7.25" wide x 2" high and bows 3.25" wide x 2" high.
Now for the little girl...
Nursery Tails Imagine - print & cut the dress at 3.6" - this makes the dress too long to make her sit so I cut a portion from the bottom and used a border punch to finish it off.
Everyday Paper Doll's - head and hair at 5 1/2" (hair on pg. 2)
The tricky, but easy part
Arms - cut another head from the Everyday Paper Doll's cartridge at 5 1/4"....then cut the head in half, but shape it to look like little chubby arms. Use the ears for the hands. One head will give you two little arms and hands. :)
Legs - two triangles from George & Basic Shapes cut at 1 1/4".
Shoes - two ovals from George cut at 1 1/4"
To create little ruffle socks I used a border punch
Here is the back of a completed one to give you a better idea
Just play with it, experiment and have fun!
I will be working on more kids...including some little boys and will try and do a video tutorial. Although this one really was not hard to do at all.
