If you are just arriving here from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  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 Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 18 Makers participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I have three projects to share with you. The first was when our first brought our puppy home and the second is a wreath that I made.

The first project I am going to show you is a layout I designed using the Seasonal Mix-ins. I used the Besties-Olivia stamp set for the paw prints on the Bluebird Cardstock.

I cut the title and the collar with my Cricut. I changed out the “O” on home with the paw print heart. I added a couple of the hearts from the Black Acrylic Arrows and a Wooden Heart.

I also added some Black Shimmer Trim.

My next project is a wreath that I make. I had the mdf USA that I covered with the Stars & Sparkles paper. I used White Glitter paper for the “S”. I did use outdoor Modge Podge to seal the USA.

My third project was finally covering these fire crackers that I picked up at Michael’s last year.

I love this paper pack, the colors are some of my favorite!! I decided to do a memorial page for one of our dogs. This was one of the last photos I have of her. I used Lilac as the base page along with Grape, Glacier, Nectarine, Lemonade, Sapphire, Daisy White and the In This Together paper collection.

I cut the two scalloped edges with my Cricut. I also used the Build-a-Rainbow thin cuts with the Charming Backgrounds Stamp set. I used the Simple Serif Uppercase Font and thin cuts.

I used the heart stencil from Stencil Pack 1 with the Opaque matte texture paste plus a bit of Grape Ink mixed in.

I used a heart shaker as a fun detail with the heart shaker window foam and acetate and Heart Shaker Window Thin Cuts. I used the Rainbow Bridge stamp set that is still available online.

Heart 2 Heart ~ Pet-Pourri

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week our challenge is Pet-Pourri. For this challenge we want you to celebrate your pet or possibly an animal that you love. Maybe a card or a layout or what every you feel fits this challenge. Just remember you must use at least one Close to My Heart product in you project.

I decided to complete this layout that I have been waiting to complete. I had to say good by to my boy several years and had not done my memorial page yet. I had this idea to use the hearts and make a frame. I couldn’t find what I wanted in Design Space so I made it myself. It took a bit of time but I am pleased the way it turned out. I used the Best Friends Furever paper pack which is now retired. I also used the the Yesterday & Today paper for the base. I also used the Seasonal Mix-in along with some cardstock.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until APRIL 30th to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Tribute to Ringle

It has been almost three years since we lost our first Siberian Husky, Ringle.  Since that time we have lost two more of our dogs.  It has been tough losing our four legged family members, but having them in our life has been so worth the heartache.   I decided it was time to tackle my last layout of Ringle.  I think I have been avoiding it as I did not want feel the emotions again.

Here is what I designed ~

Pet Layout ~ Proplayer ~ catscrapbooking.comI am really happy the way this layout turned out.  For this layout I used the following productsL

  • Proplayer paper pack (retired)
  • Basic Fundamental Paper Pack
  • Cardstock ~ Whisper, Pacific, White Daisy and Black
  • Embellishments ~ Black Shimmer Trim, Slate Diagonal Ribbon, & Silver Sequins
  • Cricut ~ I found the heart with the paw print on with my subscription.
  • Paw Print border ~ from my stash

Happy Crafting!
