You Are Pawsome Layout

Hi everyone! It’s Anita S. from The Flamingo Chronicals to share a Pawsome layout with you today. We all love our fur babies and it is time to get those photos on a layout. We have the perfect papers in the store now from Photo Play. For this layout I used the Cooper and Friends (the dog collection), there is also a cat collection called Roxie and Friends.

P.S. – Gena has awesome classes made with these collections so be sure to check those out!

I wanted to add some dimension to the page so I heat embossed a few random chipboard pieces from my stash and added a Maya Road Wood Token in the center. The collection includes a cute die cut sticker sheet with lots of options and a 12 x 12 journal card sheet.

Adding foam tape under a die cut sticker is a great way to add dimension to your page as well. The fun hexagon pieces are from Maya Road as well (an older collection). I inked them with VersaMagic inks and added punched papers from the collection on top of them.

The top layer was punched with a Martha Stewart set. To add some detail to the page I machine stitched around the top layer and doodle a bit. As a final touch I sprayed a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist around the edges.

Be sure to stop by the store and check out the new products in stock and pick up some of the new Photo Play papers to show of your fur baby.

Isn’t she a very sweet kitten! I used several papers by Photo Play. You can find the flowers, metal butterfly, corrugated cardstock, and stickles at The Crafty Scrapper.
