Puppy layouts

Good afternoon everyone! Hope everybody kept afloat during our heavy rains over the weekend. If you were located on the Central East Coast, hope you stayed safe during the Hurricane.

With all the heavy rain, we stayed home. What’s a girl to do? Scrap, of course! And here is what I worked on:

Good Dog: I just recently got the Kiwi Lane “Pet” collection, which includes papers and templates. I really enjoyed using this kit to create this two pager of Bear

Good Dog

The die cut title and doggie were from my stash. The title was even already colored that way. It matches perfectly! Here are close-ups:



A Home without a cat is just House: I mixed and matched Echo Park dog and cat collections to create this fun layout featuring Penny and Jackson playing together. Twine is from Doodlebug and journal spot is from my stash.

A Home without a Cat is just a House

Cute Puppy: Since I had all my Echo Park dog stash out, I used it to create this two pager of sweet Penny Lane, back in Feb 2014. I had gotten a new camera and she was posing for me!

The left page includes washi tape from Queen & Co and the “beg” sticker from Karen Foster. The little white word stickers are from 7 Paper

The second page includes more of those 7 Paper stickers, and a Karen Foster fire hydrant sticker. The washi tape is unknown manufacturer.

The chipboard house has been in my stash FOREVER. Its from Maya Road and I covered it with yellow Bo Bunny cardstock. The little doggie is fussy cut from one of the cut apart sheets in the Echo Park “BARK” collection.

Jeffrey: I used up an old 6×6 MME paper pad to create my background, layers behind the photos, the photo mats and even fussy cut the arrows! The puffy stickers are from Bob’s by Sketchers — yes, you read right! Sketchers!  A little story about those stickers. I went to the Sketchers at our local outlet Mall back in June and got some really cute sneakers that had doggies all over them! I love them! Anyways, inside the shoe box was a small package of stickers! Cute, huh?


The blue alphas are from Cloud 9 Design.

A few layouts

Good morning everyone. This weekend was quite rainy, so I stayed in yesterday and did some scrappin’. Used up some old stash too! 😉

I’m on a short leash: Cardstock is Bazzill, pattern paper is DCWV

Finding the perfect bone: Alphas are My Little Shoebox and pattern papers/stickers are Echo Park “BARK” collection

Finding the Perfect Toy

Friends Furever: The ribbons are from Oriental Trading, Bazzill, and Offray and the stickers are all from stash. I got the idea from a process video by Jen Schow. She has a complete series of “Use it or Lose it” and I only watched a couple of videos but now I’m hooked. She has one video dedicated to ribbon that I highly suggest you watch.

Our Dogs

I host the Pet Challenge each month at A Cherry On Top and this month’s theme is “Group Photo”.

Group usually means 3 or more, but in this case, I’ll say “more than one”. If you have multiple furbabies, this will probably be alot easier. At least one photo must be a group shot – 2 or more of your furbabies. But if you only have one, no worries. Do you have a photo of your children with the family dog? That counts. Do you have a photo of your DH holding 2 of your kittens? That counts too! And what if you do not have furbabies? A group of birds out on the lawn or some cattle as your drive by counts too.

Here is my example:

Our Dogs

A photo of Jeffrey, Ruby and Penny all together, August 2015. All the papers/stickers are from Authentique and the alphas are Bo Bunny.

Hope you can join us. A random winner will be selected to win a GC from ACOT!

TFL! 🙂

Using up my stash

Good afternoon everyone! This past weekend I ended up doing 4 layouts and TWO were two pagers. I also chose to use up older stash. It worked well two weekends ago, and I even used up little stickers here/there that were in a small basket sitting on my desk.

Lazy Bones: Other than cardstock background, all the papers were in my notebook of scraps. The stickers/die cuts were in the little basket. Washi tape was on hand as well.

Lazy Bones

Lucky Dog: Papers are by DCWV, brads are WRMKs and sticker is by Anna Griffin, and the last one on the sticker sheet too! Lucky Dog

Game Over: More DCWV pattern papers and all stickers came from my little basket. Alphas are super old too.Game Over

It’s a Cats Life: DCWV pattern paper, Creative Imaginations stickers with Anna Griffin kitty face stickers. Even used a stencil with modeling paste mixed with ink.

Adorable Furbabies, August 7th

Good afternoon everyone! The pups had a great time having my friends over at the house for the weekend, especially Shelby! Jackson was scarce, BUT, I did get super cute pics of him outside the day before everyone showed up.

Shelby will do ANYTHING for a tennis ball!


Speaking of Shelby, she sure does love Amanda!

Shelby also loves taking selfies!

And posing

When everybody left, Shelby was exhausted!


And before bed last night, she spent some time chewing on a rope.

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Puppy Layouts

Good morning everyone! Over the weekend I had my scrappy friends over for our Summer Crop. I chose to work on puppy pictures of Jasmine and Shelby. I’ve noticed that I spend alot of time digging thru my stash, settling on which paper(s) to use, etc during our crops, which in turn leaves few layouts completed over a weekend. This time, I spent a few days working on creating a “kit”. I started out with some brightly colored Karen Foster doggie papers, then built my “kit” around those papers. Solid cardstock to match, neutrals, smaller prints in those colors. Embellishments were stickers, enamel shapes/dots, brads, washi tapes, veneers, etc. I managed to get 9 layouts completed.

Dig It

This next layout I’d like to share with you for the A Cherry On Top’s Pet Challenge that I’m hosting this month. This month, you must document your furbaby getting into trouble. Or, if you took pictures AFTER the incident, that counts too. And we’re journaling about it too! 🙂

Dig It

I chose to scrap about Jasmine digging just a couple of weeks after we adopted the girls. The first photo is priceless! Journaling reads:

Jasmine loves to dig! Once she gets started, she can’t stop. She can dig a hole to China if she tried. As bas digging is, she sure does look cute doing it. Now that they are older, the digging is less frequent, and luckily, the holes are smaller.

My Supply List:

  • brown papers, journaling card, “bad to the bone” die cut: KaiserCraft
  • blue paper, title sticker: Echo Park
  • green pattern paper, “super good times” sticker, “best day ever” die cut: Jillibean Soup
  • washi tape: Recollections
  • brads: Eyelet Outlet
  • paw print buttons, bone shaped paper clip: from stash

Sunshine Bliss and Little Kitty Brother

Good afternoon everyone! Where did the year go?!?? I can’t believe its August already!

Today I’m sharing with you a couple of layouts I did last week.

Sunshine Bliss: I ordered Bo Bunny “Sunshine Bliss” JUST for Miss Penny photos. She loves napping and soaking up the sun and this collection is PERFECT for these kind of photos

My Little Kitty Brother: This layout uses some odds/ends from different manufacturers, but mostly Echo Park Cat/Dog collections. These pics were taken May 2015, about 2 weeks after we got Jasmine and Shelby. Look how little Shelby was! She was so sweet with her little kitty brother Jackson. They are still that close and sweet!

TFL! 🙂

Best Friend

Good afternoon everyone! After some jam-packed weekends and crazy week days, I finally got some scrapping done.

This layout uses the new Echo Park collection ” A Dog’s Tail”. This collection works really well with photos of Jeffrey – all the browns, blues and reds.

Best Friend

Jeffrey was enjoyin the log Nylabone – a gift from New York friend for Christmas. He really enjoyed it!

I also used a couple of items from my stash – dog bone brad, ribbon and dog house button.

TFL! 🙂
