Crafty Cutters Creations Blog Hop- Day 4

Welcome to the Crafty Cutters Creations blog hop! Each day this week, the wonderful ladies of this group will be showing you one of their creations. Please come back each day this week to see more great projects!

Today's hop starts with Marji- , please start there!

For this Awesome Hop using our Awesome Cricut's I made a special LO of my Chinese pug Buddy . He is 6 years old. I purchased him at a pet store when he was a month old. I gave him to my mom. The black paper is piggy tales- itsy bitsy spider collection. It is double sided. The dog background paper is from gcd animal collection (biglots pad). I traced a card designer all around it on the back of the paper to give it the unique shape, that was hard, so it looks odd. The bones and banner was using recollections paper called "dogs". The title BUDDY is from black thickers.I glued the bones and banner on to black card stock to off set the 2 pattern papers. Also the banner was 5 separate pieces so I used real small brads to hook them together and then used a brad to attach it to the background paper. It is only attached with the 2 end brads. Rest of the banner is free flowing. The carts I used was : banner- birthday bash and dog bones - a childs year. I took a white gel pen and hand stitched around the dog paper and outlining the letters.Ops I forgot Buddy. He loves his picture taken. Everytime he see's me with a camera he comes and poses. I matted him onto some black tear paper and tried to use my deco scissors to cut him out. OMGoodness that was so hard to do.   A simple but fun LO.

I just wanted to say I used this sketch as inspiration.

  1. What a cute dog! Sometimes is good to use a template to get an idea of where to start, then add your own embellishments to make it your own style! Great job!
