My aunt and a number of friends are cat lovers, so when I saw this cute cat stamp from PTI I knew it was coming home with me. Here's a grey tabby. Love that the image can be coloured or paper pieced to look like some of my favourite cats:


Supplies (PTI unless otherwise noted)
Paper -  stamper's select white; smokey shadow paper pack
Stamps - Cat's Meow
Ink - Memento Tuxedo black
Accessories - copics; Cat's Meow dies

Click smile!

Here's another 12 x 12 layout from Zoe's album. Love the flowers from Maggie Holmes' Flea Market collection which I've teamed with some other papers from my stash. Isn't she a cutie!

Another 12 x 12

Here's another layout from Zoe's album. The photo is 5 x 7 which seems to work well.  Nice and colourful for spring! The tickets are from PTI's Just the Ticket stamp set. I made my own tickets with my cricut.

Scrapping away

I'm enjoying the scrapbooking I'm doing with Zoe's album. So much so that I decided to include a few 12 x 12 pages as well as the PL pages - just for a sit of variety.

Here's one with a cute picture from a couple of months ago. I've been saving the floral paper (think it's from Crate Paper) for a while now, waiting for the right project to use it on:

Digital Project Life #3

I'm making good progress with my digital layouts. Here's another one from Zoe's first month pictures. More Tracy Larsen and a great kit from Laura Passage at Pixels and Company called Brady's Room.

Digital Project Life #2

Back again with another digital layout of my niece. I'm having a lot of fun using Tracy Larsen's templates and various digital elements, most from Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes digi kit. It's a great way to learn how to use PSE - understanding layers and clipping masks, adding shadows etc. I feel like I've only just scratched the surface!

Another shaker

Still churning out those shaker cards! Here's another birthday card using the oval dies and some paper from my stash - from Crate Paper's Flea Market collection. I used vellum instead of acetate for the shaker component and love the soft look it gives:

Birthday shaker

I've been having fun making cards with PTI's second Make it Market kit called Shakers + Sprinkles designed by Betsy Veldman. The kit contains a lot of dies which make it easy to cut and put together the shaker components. Here's a birthday card which uses the heart shaped dies and patterned paper found in the kit:


Supplies (PTI unless otherwise noted)
Paper - stamper's select white, aqua mist, hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz, hawaiian shores pattern pack
Stamps - Shakers + Sprinkles
Ink - Versafine onyx black
Accessories - Shakers + Sprinkles kit; spellbinders label die, sewing machine
