Baby Puppy Layouts

Good afternoon everyone! A couple of weeks ago, I had a few of my scrappy friends over for our quarterly crop that got pushed back by 2 months. I was working on puppy layouts – BABY puppy layouts! Back when Shelby and Jasmine were only 4 – 5 months old! OMGoodness they were ADORABLE! Here they are!

Play Dirty: Used mostly PhotoPlay papers/stickers

Shelby: Used Authentique papers/stickers with Heidi Grace chipboard alphas (don’t those match the papers perfectly?!)

Friends: I used lots of scraps, and a mix of doggie papers with other papers. Pulled the purple from the photo.

The next ones use Simple Stories “Life is Ruff” collection.

Last but not least, one that uses a mix of 2 Bella Blvd collections. Shelby discovering a BUG!

Thanks for looking!

Adorable Furbabies – August 4th

Hello everyone! Its been a busy couple of weeks but that doesn’t stop the furkids from being CUTE!

Jazzy loves to soak up the sun.

Shelby managed to squeeze her butt in one of my chairs I have in the Scrap Room. LOL

The girls were playing with a toy together and were trying to get thru the doggie door. Together. P.S. I caught that on video and yes, they went thru the doggie door (one at a time) without dropping the toy! LOL.

While watching the local news to check out the radar from Hurricane Hanna, Jackson was interested in the cursor the meteriologist was moving around. LOL.

Jackson was ready for bed!

Somebody was a Miss Sleepy Head!

Penny and Jackson were staring out the window together. Super sweet!

Once Penny left, I noticed that was a small gecko that was crawling around outside and Jackson saw it too!

I was in the middle of scrapping some photos of Shelby when Jackson came in, hyper and running around and ended up grabbing a piece of some tennis balls pattern paper and tearing it up!

He looks MAD in the next photo! Its like “Take that tennis ball pattern paper! I’m mad at mommy for scrapping Shelby and not me!” LOL

I showed those pictures to my husband and the said “Cat Scrap Fever!”. What a perfect title! LOL!

For the week, my husband is working from home and boy are the pups and Jackson HAPPY about that!

Here are just a few highlights from the first day (Monday)

Last but not least, Miss Sleepy Head aka Penny Lane all tucked in, ready for bed!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, July 17th

Good afternoon everyone and Happy Friday!

The girls looking very sweet one morning after breakfast! ❤ ❤

Jazzy decided to flatten the tall grass. LOL

Miss Penny looking so sweet in my scrap room.

Jazzy looking very sweet Sunday morning ❤ ❤

I cleaned out Shelby’s iDig and even washed the layers. When I put it back together, I even added different toys. She treated it like a brand new toy!

The girls have been sleeping very close together. They tend to mirror each other.

I managed to get ALL FOUR in one photo! Not all are looking at me, but hey, better than nothing!

And last but not least, another sweet Jazzy photo, taken earlier this morning. ❤ ❤

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Dog and Cat Layouts

Good afternoon everyone! With the heat index over 105 each weekend, I’ve been staying inside and scrapping!

I used my Collection Bash Kit (combination of 2 bits/pieces of KaiserCraft Dog Collections) on 3 layouts.

In Memory Of: I had come across these photos a few weeks ago but didn’t know how to scrap them or what I wanted to say. Until now.

Journaling: A month after Bear passed away, I put a few photos of her in a tri-fold frame. One of her at 9 months, one at 6 years old and one of her at 10 years old. I showed her sister Ruby Mae the photos and its almost like she knew who she was looking at. It was very sweet and amazing to watch.

Love Your Selfie: Selfies of Ruby Mae and I. She loved taking pictures! 2015

I used Tim Holtz “Stormy Sky” distressed ink; Bo Bunny pattern paper; Paper House Productions cork stickers; Freckled Fawn chipboard and Fancy Pants Flair button.

This is also for my Pet Challenge I’m hosting over at A Cherry On Top. I had been hosting it for a couple of years, but had to take an 18 month hiatus due to some personal obligations. But now, I’m ready and BACK! Click on the link to join in!

Kung Fu Kitty: Mr. Jackson playing with a dog toy. August 2017. His legs look like he’s Kung Fu Fighting! LOL

I used The Paper Studio washi tape; Doodlebug enamel dots; Crafty Works purple alphas; Paper House Productions puffy sticker; Jillibean Soup label stickers and everything is else Bella Blvd (Chloe Collection).

Life is Sweet: Jackson in his fave tree. Used Fancy Pants “The Bright Side” collection

Picture Perfect: A sweet photo of Mr. Jeffrey ❤ <3. Used a kit from the Paper Studio

A Place in the Sun. Miss Penny sunbathing. Used a mixture of OLD (LYB embellishments) and NEW (DCWV papers)

Just a Friend. Used mostly Best Creation and DCWV.

Journaling: One day I went outside to look for Jackson. I found him in his tree, along with this little girl. She would not let me pet her, only take pictures. After that day, I never saw her again. July 2017

Meow. I used 7 Paper word strip stickers; Best Creations pattern papers; WRMKs embossed stickers; Jillibean Soup date tag; Queen & Co beige enamel dots; and Simple Stories green enamel dots.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, July 9th

Good afternoon everyone! My furkids have been super cute the last couple of weeks.

Ball is LIFE for the Shelbster!

Miss Jasmine likes to lay pretty, like a lady

I love it when the girls sleep so close to each other. Just like when they were babies.

Penny Lane got super hyper and wanted to play with a toy! Until Shelby showed up! LOL

Penny loves to watch and bark at the mail man. Even when he/she is 2 houses down.

On July 3rd, Jackson turned FOUR years old! We threw him a little birthday party filled with treats and tuna and cheese cupcakes!

The girls got Frosty Paws ice cream and The Dog Bakery Snickerdoodles!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Dogs leave paw prints on your heart layout

Hello everyone! I managed to get one layout done last week. Its part of a “Collection Bashing” Challenge over at A Cherry On Top.

I have “bashed” collections before, but as I was deciding on which one to do, I came across leftover pieces I have from 2 KaiserCraft pet collections. I had 4 full sheets of pattern paper and lots of scraps but perfect for layering, fussy cutting and photo mats. LOTS of those branding strips and 2 sheets of stickers. One was full and the other one had just a few missing. PLUS half of a package of ephemera.

I added the brown dog bone paperclip because I figured with all the browns, it would match. I also grabbed alphas in various shades of brown/cream that I thought would go well.

My goal is to do at LEAST four layouts using this collection.

My first layout (so far, as this challenge goes on thru July 31st) is of older photos of my parents’ dog Little Bit who passed away a couple of years ago.

I started with the wood grain background and using the lines on the background, I lined up the branding strips (those are just HALF!). Then I matted the two photos and placed them down and saw the two large phrases I could fussy cut from pattern paper (All Great Friendships…..and Dogs leave paw prints….). I then found the cute quote “A dog is the only thing….” and tucked it underneath a photo while using the top portion of the “dogs leave paw prints” layered on top of the top photo. Then I scattered several word art stickers here and there where they would fit.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, June 23rd

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is staying safe out there. I have just a few photos of the furkids to share with you all.

I tried to get a decent pic of Jackson but if I print this in b/w, I think it would look great!

My dogs are still social distancing! LOL

Life is ruff when you’re a pup!

And last but not least, Jackson likes to get underneath the sheet and now there’s a hole! LOL!

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Weekend Layouts

Hello everyone! I have a few layouts to share with you that I did over the weekend.

Happy Birthday to You: Photos of the girls on their 3rd birthday enjoying some doggie ice cream, pup cakes and plenty of fun toys. I used mostly The Paper Studio “Eat Cake” birthday stack and stickers. The circles are punched are using an EK Success Confetti Circle punch.

The design is based on the two page sketch for the Double Page challenge over at ACOT:

My Best Friend: An older photo of me with my parents’ dog LB (Little Bit). He passed away 2 years ago. He was a good sweet pup.

Anyways, I used Echo Park “I Love My Dog” with the “Best Friend” and “Doggie Days” stickers being from The Paper Studio. They are actually clear stickers and they’ve been sitting on my desk for a while – trying to remind myself to use them up. So I backed them with solid cardstock and fussy cut them out. Alot easier to use them that way!

Layout is based on the Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge #176 over at ACOT:

Dog – Furry Friend: Penny and Jeffrey playing together about 6 years ago. Unfortunetly Jeffrey passed away almost 3 years ago. Despite being 10 years older than Penny, he sure enjoyed playing with her. It was very sweet.

Again, used the Echo Park “I Love My Dog” collection. I did the Make the Cut Challenge, which was to use FOUR 6×6 sheets of pattern paper. I couldn’t cut into them so naturally I put them in a grid design.

It was’t me: This was during Penny’s “tear everything up” phase. And when I say everything, she even tore up comforters and pillows. LOL! This time though, the victim was a plush toy. The look on her face is so priceless, like “It wasn’t me. It exploded on its own”. LOL.

I used mostly KaiserCraft pattern papers and stickers, with the light pink pattern paper from Elle’s Studio and Basic Grey pink brads. Really wanted a pop of pink in there from that toy.

The journaling is even a quote from Miss Penny:

Design is based on the sketch for Sketch with a Twist Challenge. The “twist” was to have a decorative border. I used an EK Success paw print edge punch in black.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, June 12th

Good afternoon everyone and Happy Friday! Its been a long week work wise and the pups have been quite adorable!

The Shelbster!

Hubby finished the peanut butter and let Shelby have some.

It was National Donut Day last Friday (June 5th). I bought the girls some donut cookies from the Dog Bakery. They enjoyed them!

My husband was eating some ice cream and of course, at the end, Penny got some!

Jackson was drinking some water, then the girls showed up! LOL. He got wet and looked disgusted, but he never moved.
