Pets Week

Let's not forget our furry friends! In fact, this week we're going to dedicate all of our projects to man's best friend and all other forms of fauna.

How To: Die cut a starburst frame from scrap cardstock (I enlarged it so it would cover an entire 12×12 square page) and then I designed a "love" heart in Adobe Illustrator and cut it from white cardstock. Trace every other starburst onto patterned paper, cut it out, and adhere it on a white cardstock background. Use the between scraps as spacers then remove all the spaces. Sew down each patterned paper strip. Adhere the heart die cut on top and sew it in place. Use a sharp craft knife to cut away in the inside of the heart then replace it with a cream patterned paper. Add photos and embellishments as shown. Drop dark gray spray mist over the top left and bottom right corners. Journal between two of the rays.

How To: Use pink watercolors to paint across the center of a 11" piece of yellow polka dot paper and let it dry. Stitch circles using gray thread over some of the polka dots. Staple the painted/stitched paper onto patterned paper with a gray striped border. Tear the edges of the polka dot paper and staple the torn sections. Fussy cut flowers from patterned paper. Layer die cut cards, four photos, and the fussy cut flowers on the center of the layout. Embellish the layout with wood veneer flowers, a cat die cut, journaling spot die cut (with journaling written on it), a flower sticker, ribbon photo corners, and a letter stickers title as shown.
