Scrapbook Saturdays - Puppy layout






Hi all! Its another Scrapbook Saturday at My Cricut Craft Room and today I have a favorite photo of my granddaughter on her 5th birthday. She was surprised with a new Yorkie puppy who she promptly named Charlie. It was the sweetest moment when she opened the box to find her new best friend inside. I love the saying "Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot about puppies" and thought it fit this photo perfectly.

To create this layout, I used 3 different Cricut cartridges. Here are the cuts and sizes I used:

Stamping - shape for the sentiment. The outer blue was cut at 3" , the green layer was cut at 2.88 and the white oval was cut at 3 (used Gypsy to resize the layer and to hide contour for the white)

Create A Critter - Doghouse 2.00
Tree 3.00 (tree top was also embossed with a Cuttlebug folder)

Birthday Bash - Tag cut @ 4"

The double sided flowered / polka dot paper is Jillibean Soup. I loved this paper but they only had one piece left at Archivers. Border punches from Martha Stewart and EK Success accent the strip of Jillibean paper. I finally broke out my little Janome sewing machine and added zig zag stitching to the outside edge of my layout. One last little added touch was a butterfly brad that I won from someone's blog candy.

Hope you enjoyed our Scrapbook Saturday. If you didn't come over to visit from Erica's My Cricut Craft Room, please be sure to hop over there and see what my fellow design team members created for today. http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/

A very dainty LO. The cricut and the sentiment are an eye catcher. Great pastel colours.
