Happy Holidays Kitty layout by Patty Folchert
This began with a Creative Scrappers sketch #265 by the ever talented Kristine Davidson. I loved the grid style pattern and thought it would work well with what I had in mind. I began with a photo of my daughter’s cat Luna, so cute right. Next I pulled out Jillibean’s last two Christmas releases: Holly Berry Borscht with just a little Christmas Cheer Chowder added in. I laid out the papers until I found the combinations I wanted and then I used the peppermint stripe paper as a base and added all of my grid pieces with a little adhesive to keep them in place until I stitched them on with my sewing machine and white thread. I fussy cut out the arrows from a chevron paper and attached as shown.
Next I pulled out the Christmas Cheer chowder stamp set and stamped out four images onto white cardstock in red pigment ink, all except the Ho Ho Ho stamped onto yellow salt paper. I set those aside to dry. Then I grabbed some brand new Jillibean Tile alphas to make the Joy title and the star in the center row. I added backers to each to make them stand out more on the patterns they were placed.
Then I added the stamped items back onto the page as shown, two arrows, Ho Ho Ho banner and pair of cute elves.
Now I just have to decide if I put this in my daughter’s scrapbook album or my own? Hmmm decisions, decisions.
Joy to the World,
