Krisy back today to share a layout featuring the new "Fur-Ever" friends collection. I will be honest when I saw this collection my heart sank. Just a bit. The reason was because we don't have any pets. We used to have bulldog before we had kids with the intention of getting another but then we had kids. And you know kids are kinda like pets...aren't they?!? Just Kidding.
All that being said, within a week I had smashed out 8 layouts using this collection. Yes, I got a little creative with some of them but some I did manage to use for their right intention. Today, I am going to share two.
The first was the 8th layout I created from this collection. I had plans for a layout but then things changed on Saturday. This layout features my best friends cat, Spencer. I had planned to make a funny layout but then on Saturday, my BF Sarah, told me Spence was a little bit off and had to make a weekend visit to the vet. On Monday after a grim diagnosis Spencer was put to sleep. So I changed my funny layout to something Sarah could hang on her wall. I framed and delivered it before she got home from work.
Everyday Etc cards to create the base and then fussy cut the words so they didn't take up too much space. I mounted the Purr-fect on some foam squares to add some dimension.
For the background I used the "You Spin Me Right Round" Stencil with some Colour Blast Colour Spray, then stamped over the top for a bit more visual interest.
Here are a few close ups...
Sarah loved it.
Now here is another layout layout I did. I thought I would never manage to use the cat cards from this collection, then on a day last week when it was close to a MILLION degrees (Queensland summer temperature at 40 degrees celcius) my daughter decided the it was too hot for clothes but totally suitable for a cat beanie. She wouldn't wear the damn thing in winter and I have no idea where she got it from but Freaking Crazy is the only way to describe her.
Then I layered some random papers with the Pink paw card from the Everyday Etc Collection to form the matte behind my photo. To finish the layout I cut up the title card, added the Crazy die cut from the Mad About You collection along with a YOU flair button and some orange and yellow hearts. \

Thank you for stopping by today. I will be back next month with some more crazy layouts using the NEW "Fur-ever Friends" Collection.
