Generally when I create a scrapbook, it's a remembrance from a trip, and I include not only pictures, but also all kinds of odds and ends: business cards and/or receipts from restaurants, tags from special purchases, brochures, etc. But this weekend I decided to work on a scrapbook page with some everyday photos of our cats.
Stamps: Cats Galore stamp set (Inkadinkadoo)
Card stock: Chestnut (AC Cardstock), Furry Friends and Nine Lives (We R Memory Keepers)
Ink: VersaMark (Tsukineko), Signo white gel pen (uni-ball), pure brown pen (ZIG Millennium)
Accessories: Brown grosgrain ribbon (American Crafts Elements Ribbon: Dunk Tank), glitter brads (Making Memories), 1/4" and 1/8" ScorTape (ScorPal), Dimensionals (Stampin' Up!)
I love this cat-themed printed card stock (you can't really see it, but there is glitter on some of the words) and the coordinating rectangular cards. The cards came together on a 12" x 12" sheet; there were twelve cards total in a mix of dog and cat themes. I have a couple of the cat cards left; I'll have to find someone else who can use the dog cards.
I think the rest of the page is pretty self-explanatory: I stamped the bottom of the page with cat-related images (fish, ball of yarn, paw print and "meow") and added faux stitching along the top edges. I only added a few brads for embellishment; the patterned paper was already pretty busy, and I didn't want to go overboard.
Mielle and Pirate are still going strong, and they have plenty of personality themselves. One of these days I'll have to make each one of them his or her own scrapbook page and journal about all the funny things they do.
Thanks for stopping by!
