today i'm over on the newton's nook blog today sharing a layout i made of my own little furry friend - phoenix! :)
it's hard to tell on a layout, but i acutally used 4 different stamp sets on it! of course the newton with a scarf is from the newton's holiday mischief stamp set! i paper pieced that cute little, bundled up cat and then popped him on an white enamel covered snowflake! :)
i used two different sentiments too. the one stamped directly on the photo is from frozen friends (LOVE stamping on photos - it's like physically making your own instagram, lol!) and the one on the side is from snow day! i also used the paw image from newton's antics! :)
i started the layout by splattering some white mr heuy's on the page and then adding a border strip of navy paper and then strips of washi.
both photos are popped up, and under the paw print one is a little bag with my journaling! :)
this layout is all about when we moved to washington state (in 2007!! i don't scrapbook in order, i scrap on the pictures i'm inspired by at that time. it's totally unorganized and i don't even have a BOOK i keep my pages in, but it helps me keep the creative juices flowing! i get to scrap what i want, when i want! no pressure, because it's just for me, right?! lol) anyway, it was the first time little phoenix had ever experienced snow and he was both curious (duh - cat) and timid. it was so funny to watch him!
so that's it!
hopefully you have a long weekend coming up and you can sneak in some crafy time! if you do, get your newton's nook stamps (or grab the amazing freebies here) and play along in the inky paws challenge! it's fun, easy, and you could win some stamps! score!
