Kitty Cat layout for Doodlebug Design

Monday, May 22, 2023

Who loves flowers...??? Meeeeee... :) and I have to have them on almost every layout. Who loves fussy cutting? I guess, fussy cutting hasn't as many fans as the flowers do... haha. I don't love it but I don't mind it either. As I often love the result of my layouts where I do a lot of fussy-cutting, I do it again and again.

So here's the layout I created after an hour of fussy-cutting...

I took one of the patterned papers from the Pretty Kitty collection that has a white background and a ton of tiny flowers and leaves and I started to cut those out.

When I thought I had enough, I started arranging them on the paper to see how and where I wanted to have my floral areas.

When I had my two areas with the flowers, I started to adhere some of them using foam squares. I wanted to have different dimensions in the flowers, so I used foam squares and for the rest of them, I used liquid glue, after bending up the edges a bit.

When I had all of my flowers adhered, I used jewels and enamel dots to put into the centers of some of the flowers. I also used enamel shapes and puffy stickers to add to some gaps between the flowers.
Then I used a pink ink spray and splattered some ink on the layout.

Of course, this layout needed a photo of my Kätti... :) I matted it on four pieces of patterned paper and adhered it to the layout using foam tape.
Then I added the title. This title is from the Chit Chat die cut pack and I thought it was just the perfect match for this layout. I tried to color the cat face in the word "cat", in grey... it didn't really work... :)

To finish, I added a mouse and two cat heads from the puffy stickers, a tiny enamel heart, a banner saying "You're so meow-gical" and a doodly border.
I like how this turned out soooo so much. I ALWAYS love my fussy-cutting layouts... you should try it too. :)

See you soon,

The cutest kitty layout for Doodlebug Design

Monday, May 8, 2023

Need a cute collection to scrap your beloved pets? Well Doodlebug's got what you need. Two brand new collections, one cat themed, the other dog themed, called Pretty Kitty and Doggone Cute.

I created a layout using Pretty Kitty, showcasing the lovely patterns of the 6x6 paper pad. 

I wanted to use a lot of the different patterns, because I just love the cute patterns and colors of the collection. So I cut out a few squares of patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad and then hand cut all the letters that I needed, to write "The cutest little friend". 

I arranged them on the paper in a way that I liked, also including the photo. The shape that resulted from that, was a bit like rectangle, so I decided to use a few more embellishments to fill out this rectangle.

I cut out three hearts from patterned papers and I used a cat head Shaker Pop. 
I matted my photo on a few scrap pieces.

Then I started to adhere everything, the photo and all the letters. To make the letters more interesting and give them more dimension, I bend them a little bit and only added a bit of glue to the middle, so that they wouldn't lie flat on the paper. 

After adhering all the main pieces, I went through my embellishments and chose jewels, enamel dots, enamel shapes an stickers. I added them to the letters, trying to match the colors. 

To add some last details, I added some tangled thread and pink splatters. 

I love creating layouts with big letters, it always looks cute and colorful.
I hope you like it too and are inspired to try it out.
