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.

Its a Cat's Life

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

TFL! 🙂

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! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, July 23, 2018

Good afternoone everyone! Hope you all are staying cool in the a/c in this summer heat! My furbabies sure are.

Sweet Jackson snuggling with his little monkey.


Miss Shelby wanting me to play with her while I got dressed to run errands.


Jazzy giving me the “Look”


July 15th was National Ice Cream Day and the girls celebrated with Frosty Paws and Cinnamon doggie biscuits

After ice cream, Jazzy chose to chew on a branch.


The girls sure do love their kitty brother


Shelby loves to eat ice cream in bed! Ice Cream flavored Nylabone that is!

Saturday morning is for snuggles with Jazzy

Last but not least, Miss Penny soaking up some sun


Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies – July 13, 2018

Good afternoon everyone! Its been a hot week, so the pups have been staying inside, playing with their toys. Their NEW fave this week? A duck!

When they aren’t playing together, Shelby loves her squeaky tennis ball. She’s always up for some fetch!


Jazzy says HELLO!

Mr. Jackson has been staying inside alot more because there is a bird who keeps bothering him. It dives down and picks at him for no reason. Even while he is just chilling in a chair outside. The bird even bothered a squirrel who was minding its own business. We *think* it might be a mockingbird


With Jackson inside during the day, I’ve managed to get some sweet pictures of him. Napping. Playing with toys. Being silly.

Until next time, bark and meow on! 🙂

Adorable Furbabies, July 6th

Good afternoon everyone! Let’s see what my furbabies have been up to lately!

Penny and Shelby were sharing “chew” time in my scrap room one evening. Very cute!

Shelby thinks life is ruff

Jazzy demands attention if there is a free spot in the chair next to you

Shelby very tired after a fun-filled doggie day

On Sunday, I spent quite a bit of time in my scrap room working on baby shower decorations/party favors. No problem says Penny. She’ll just chew on a bone

And when mommy needs to take a break, its selfie time with the Shelbster

Sweet Jazzy stops chewing on her bone to say HI

The girls were getting restless (it was nap time), and they played (quietly) together

After naptime, playtime outside! With the very large tennis ball

Miss Penny says Hello

Mr. Jackson turned TWO years old on July 3rd! He posed very sweetly for me, after breakfast

Hubby was out of town on business for a couple of days and the night he was to arrive, the puppies were waiting patiently for him. By the window. On the bed. Even on the laptop!

Jazzy wants to know “whatcha doing?”

Last but not least, when hubby came home, Jazzy made sure he knew she was his #1 girl!

Until next time, bark and meow on!

Kitty Layouts

Good afternoon everyone! I did two more layouts showcasing my sweet kitty, Jackson. The pics were taken Jan 2017, so he’s about 6 months in them. ❤

Snooze’n: This layout is for ACOT’s Manufacturer Challenge where we are supposed to use up our stash. Collections or manufacturers you only have bits/pieces left. I chose Anna Griffin “Best in Show”. I have a few sheets of paper, 1 die cut and a few stickers. The clear title is by The Paper Studio and the pink ribbon is from Bazzill.


Leave Me Alone: I did this layout for ACOT’s Sketch with a Twist. I used the sketch Deanna provided, along with 2 flowers. I used Bazzill cardstock and papers/stickers from KaiserCraft, Reminisce and Karen Foster. Both flowers are from Prima.

Leave me Alone

These set of pics are so funny. Mr. Jackson was having some “cattitude”. He was pouting about something and flat out refused to even look at me. LOL!!

TFL! 🙂
