Everything ABC’s ~ Letter D

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “D”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “D” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from JENIFER BENNER’S Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

For my “D” element I DESIGNED a layout of my son ringing the DOOR bell ~ DING DONG.  This is still one of his favorite things to do.

Ding Dong ~ Urban Layout ~ 4 photo layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comI love the Urban paper as it is perfect for outdoor and boy layouts.

Will you be my Valentine???

I made some simple valentine’s for my son’s class. I found on Pinterest a printable Lego Starwars figure and you insert a glow bracelet. Here is the PIN.  My son loved them but then said he wanted to give valentines to some of his friends in the neighborhood.  So I picked up some Dove chocolate hearts and made these adorable arrows.  I cannot take credit for them as one of my fellow consultants Keeley Kirwan made them and posted on Facebook.  They have been on my mind so now I had an excuse to make them.

Valentine Dove Arrows ~ Charming Cheverons ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor the Girl version I used Pixie, Smoothie, Hollyhock and Ruby.  For the Boy version I used Crystal Blue, Sapphire and Cranberry (the lighter red is second generation Cranberry).  I used the Charming Chevrons A1150 and Holiday Tags D1560 stamp sets. Along with Silver Foil Tape Z3031.

My Layout Challenge #5

Are you ready to see another layout??  I have not been as on top of getting layouts done this past two weeks as I was finishing up some Studio J photos.  I am so bummed that Studio J will be going away the end of April or when the current supply of photo paper are depleted.  I use Studio J to print my photos for scrapbooking.  So I will have a large pile of photos to scrapbook!! So I should be able to maintain my goal.  Speaking of here is my layout number #5

Fundamentals Enchantment ~ Cat Tales ~  4 photo layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comI thought the big ball of yarn was sort of humorous since we were at a large cat zoo.

Share the LoveI love the camera so that became the source of my inspiration.

Film Strip Card ~ Share the Love ~ You make me Smile ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is the inside of the card.

Film Strip Card ~ Share the Love inside ~ You make me Smile ~ CatScrapbooking.comTo make the card base I used the Film Label from Artistry #M41706E  I took two of them and welded them together then added a score line.  I then used the layer and made it a tad smaller so the card base would show around the edges.  I then made a duplicate and hid the contour lines of the small rectangles on the inside one.  Since this is the Share the Love blog hop, I am going to share with you my design for the card base just click HERE.  I used the Rock-n-roll technique to ink the center camera on White Daisy cardstock.  I first inked in Slate then rolled in Black ink.

Here is the full list of supplies used:
