Sugar and Spice and everything nice. That's what little girls are made of. And that's what the new cartridge "A Child's Year" is made of too. This cartridge is delicious, and I couldn't resist making an old fashioned kitchen layout with the adorable cuts it has to offer. The child silhouettes were cut at 3 1/2" and 3 1/4". The beautiful scalloped oval that I used for a journal tag was also cut at those same sizes. The adorable tea pot is just 1". And how cute is that little mixing bowl and spoon? I feel like I should go make some cookies! The title "Sugar and Spice" was cut at 1 1/4" and 1". There is no shadow feature for this font, but you can just as easily re-cut the same letters in a different color, and off-set them for a similar shadow effect like I did here. Have a sweet and heart-warming day!!
