It's a Boy thing layout

I've been playing with my Artiste cartridge again. At first glance I had no idea that I would use this cartridge as much as I am. This layout is the first of a series I will be posting with the Artiste cartridge and a paper pack called Dakota from Close to my Heart.

I still need to get my pictures printed so I'll have to post the layout with pictures later. For now I wanted to share the layout without pictures. I started with paper from the Dakota paper pack. I then went to my Artiste cartridge to find a title. I found 'It's a Boy' on page 64 and cut it out at 4". The word 'thing' was cut out of the font on the cartridge at 2". I also found the accent pieces on page 43 that match the paper perfectly. I cut them out at 2". 

This super cute pocket was made using a stamp set called Rugged Dude by Close to my Heart. I love it! There are 9 stamps in this set that give the pocket the look that it has. I glued it to my page leaving the top open so that I could slip a tag inside. The tag was cut using the Artiste cartridge again. There are a lot of cute tag cuts on this cartridge. I know you can't really see the one I used but it is from page 33 and was cut at 2 1/2".

I'll be back in a day or two with another layout. My goal is to use up this entire pack of paper so that I don't have miscellaneous scraps to store. If I have some small pieces left over I'll try to use them up on a card or two. Stay tuned to see what I come up with.

I'm back with pictures on my layout...

I still need to do the journaling, but for now I'm calling this layout done. Thanks for taking another look.
