Stash busting Sunday

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a good weekend. I actually had a ME day yesterday. I hardly ever have those and when I do, I’m too exhausted to do anything. But yesterday, I completed 3 layouts and even a card!

I chose to dig deep into my stash and found a partial Dog Collection from American Crafts dated 2012. I had a few full sheets and scraps and this is what I came up with!

Hanging with my Peeps: ACOT Music Challenge. Products used are Bazzill cardstock; American Crafts pattern paper and Thickers; Reminisce, Paper House Productions stickers; CTMH glitter tape; My Little Shoebox mini alphas and Momenta veneer paw prints.

The music challeng was based on an album cover and you pull inspiration from it however you wish.

The road to my Heart is paved with Pawprints: ACOT Double Page Challenge. Products used are Bazzill cardstock; American Crafts pattern paper; Reminisce stickers and CTMH glitter tape.

Double Page Challenge offered the following sketch:

Squirrely Watching: Scraplift the January Guest Designer and Manufacturer Challenge with a Twist. Products used were American Craft papers; 7 Paper, MAMBI, Reminisce stickers; Amy Tangerine Thickers; Freckled Fawn chipboard and cork arrow; Eyelet Outlet brad; Tattered Angels Mist; Bazzill cardstock; Momenta veneer paw prints and Scrapberrys flair.

The layout I scraplifted was this one:

The Manufacturer Challenge was to use manufacturs that start with an A (American Crafts, Amy Tangerine) and the twist is to use something else that starts with an A. It can be an embellishment, a technique, etc. Mine are the “arrows”.

My last project from the weekend was a card for ACOT’s Card Challenge. Products used on this one were American Craft papers; Anna Griffin sentiment; ACOT sticker; and Fancy Pants, Queen & Co, and Eyelet Outlet enamel dots.

The card challenge offered two options, with the BONUS being doing both. Option was to include an animal (I used a dog sticker). The second option was to use the following sketch:

TFL! 🙂

A couple of layouts using PhotoPlay "Fetch" collection

Good afternoon everyone! We’re staying home this weekend, so I decided to get some scrapping done.

I used PhotoPlay “Fetch” collection for both of these. The first one is based on the A Cherry on Top’s Becky Fleck Sketch #156:

Pics are of sweet Ruby Mae all smiles in the yard. The doily and twine are from Doodlebug.

The sketch I used was:

The second layout is for A Cherry On Top’s “Make the Cut” challenge and “3 in a Row” challenge. The Make the Cut Challenge offered the following sizes to cut our pattern papers:

4 1/2 x 9
3 1/4 x 10
3 x 9 1/4

And this is what I came up with:

Sweet Jeffrey snoozing the day away. Most of it is PhotoPlay with the exception of the doily (Doodlebug); sleeping dog sticker (Sticko); “LOVE” sticker (Anna Griffin) and “Best Friend” sticker (Reminisce)

The 3 in a Row Challenge is set up like a Tic-Tac-Toe board. This month our choices are:

washi tape              5 or more pattern papers                 color blue

rings/circles          inking                                                    die cuts

2 or more photos        buttons- 2 or more                             date

I went diagnol — 2 or more photos; inking and the color blue.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Whatcha doin'?

Good afternoon everyone! I started this layout on Sunday and worked on it for about 10-15 minutes each day. I was kind of picky as to where the die cuts would go, but at the end, I finally loved the placement.

This photo is a “nose” shot of Miss Penny, circa 2014. She was just SO NOSEY that day and I snapped the pic just perfectly!

I used a variety of washi tapes – Doodlebug, Love My Tapes and Queen & Co. The die cuts are dies from Momenta and the cardstock is from my scraps binder. The cute doggie sticker is from Sticko, and the mist is by Tattered Angels. Everything else used is from my stash.

I submitted this layout to the Use Your Stash Challenge at A Cherry On Top. The challenge was to use at least 5 scraps of paper and 2 different dies. I used hearts, the “LOVE” die and a paw print.

TFL! 🙂

Layout: Happy Dog

Hello everyone! I started the new year scrapping. I only did one layout, but its better than nothing.

These photos are of Bear from 2014. She was really wanting attention from my husband and I love how she grabbed his hand.

Its based on the Becky Fleck Sketch #155 that A Cherry On Top was hosting. I ran out of time, so I submitted it for the January Rewind Challenge.

Here’s the sketch:

The cut file was found Cricut Design. I searched for “paw”.

The papers/stickers are PhotoPlay and the enamel shapes are by Fancy Pants.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, January 7th

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! My pups have been enjoying some new treats that they’ve received from Santa Paws and playing outside.

I found these adorable “Happy Meals” for my babies. Hamburger, french fries and yogurt cookies. I gave them one to split on New Years Day and they devoured it!

After the celebration, Jasmine was passed out for a while in the office.

And last but not least, the girls have been having fun playing WITH a box that my husband hasn’t thrown out yet. He bought himself a shed and was putting it together over the weekend. The box was in the grass and the girls could care less about it. He moved it out to the driveway? They love it! LOL.

Until next time, barka

Adorable Furbabies, December 31st

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year’s Eve! Can’t believe tomorrow will be a New Year AND a New Decade! Lets all make it a good one!

On Dec 23rd, the furkids received a package from the New York Santa Paws. They LOVED inspecting the box and checking everything out.

After all the excitement, the girls were passed out!

Jackson even got a little something! He loves opening his presents underneath the tree.

My husband received Christmas Eve kisses from Shelby and Jasmine.

Santa Paws delivered toys and treats to the girls.

Jackson ended up playing with his stocking and lying on top of the treats Santa Paws got for him. LOL. Silly kitty!

Last but not least, I was relaxing in my recliner when Shelby popped up to say HELLO!

Until next year, bark and meow on!

Adorable Furbabies, Dec 23rd

Good afternoon everyone! Its crunch time now with Christmas Eve tomorrow. I hope everyone is finding time to relax a bit.

We put up our tree about 3 weeks ago and Jackson loves taking a nap under it.

A few weeks ago, one of our Farmer’s Markets had extended hours and over 60 vendors. One was Top Dog Bandana and I got 3 bandanas for my girls. They look so CUTE!

This weekend, it was quite chilly which means Jackson was inside quite a bit. Shelby adores her kitty brother.

Saturday, we received a package from the Missouri Santa. The girls LOVE to sniff out the package and they knew they’d find the toys on top!

And last but not least, Mr. Jackson staring at me because I wouldn’t give him more treats (for the third time that day!)

Until next time, Merry Woofmas!

Layout: Cake Time!

Good afternoon everyone! I have a layout to share with you. Its of my nephew digging into his cake on his first birthday.

I used papers from CTMH, veneer cake embellishments from KaiserCraft, alphas are Bo Bonny, the yellow washi tape is from Bella Blvd and stickers are by Reminsce .

I submitted the layout to two challenges over at A Cherry On Top. November What’s on TV? Challenge was to show a photo with food and November Sketch with a Twist Challenge was to use the sketch provided (please see below). The “twist” was to use at least two brackets. Mine is around the title.

TFL! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, November 27th

Good afternoon everyone! The furkids have been really cute the last couple of weeks.

The floral bed in the photo below usually is near the window. But looks like Jazzy wanted it next to Shelby’s bed. They look real cute napping together.

Shelby was assisting me while I put clothes away. Look how she is holding her tennis ball! She never dropped it!

Jazzy was helping Daddy put a table together.

Penny got a new elevated dish this week. I’ve noticed that she is eating a bit slower and which her turning 7 years old earlier month, it might be easier for her with an elevated dish. Took her less than a day to get used to it.

The girls got their Barksgiving Dinner from The Dog Bakery! Cranberry stuffing, cornbread, Turkey pot pie, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and 3 pumpkin cookies. Yummy!

My furbabies and I wish ya’ll a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Adorable Furbabies, November 14th

Good afternoon everyone. Last Friday, we celebrated Penny – she turned 7 years old! And boy did she have fun and get a bunch of treats and toys.

For the last ten years or so, I always take a picture first thing in the morning of the birthday girl (or boy). And here’s Miss Penny’s!

She got treats from Earthwise Pet and toys from PetCo

She loved us singing “Happy Birthday” to her, sharing her bday cake/ice cream and her toys.

Shelby continues to think she’s a lap dog. LOL. And of course, Jazzy wants to join in on the fun!

And Jazzy did! She got in the chair next to my husband and snuggled with him. She sure does love her daddy!

On Monday, our temps dropped from 80 to 35 and we woke up to a wind chill of 15. That is NOT South Texas weather in November. And Miss Penny gave Mother Nature a big ‘ol stink eye!

And to stay warm later that night, Penny snuggled in for the night with her blanket.

Until next ime, bark and meow on! 🙂
