Love for Pets - Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn

Today, I'm hopping with a bunch of amazing Scrapbooking experts!!  And our theme this month is all about Pets!!  

Initially I was rather stymied by the theme as we don't have any pets (except our chooks, and I didn't really want to scrap about them!!!).  Soooo, my page is about the pets belonging to a couple of our children.  

Two of our girls have little balls of fur which they love very much (we do too when we visit them!!)

Because the girls sent me photos with very neutral colours, I've continued that theme with my page and used Basic Black and Crumb Cake with hints of white and copper. 

The background stamping comes from Notes of Nature and an interesting set called Of Art and Texture.  I've stamped in Crumb Cake, Versamark for very subtle stamping, Memento Black and also the Craft White.  I coloured some of the Notes of Nature images using a white watercolour pencil.  

I also used a ruler and Black Stampin' Write marker and drew some lines randomly on the page.

The rest of the embellishments come from the Sweet Thoughts Memories and More cards sticker sheets as well as some punched elements using Zoo Crew paper and the Petal Park builder punch.  

The final touch is some Pebbled Path dots scattered around the page just like all the stamping!

I used the Mini Alphabet dies for the cats names too!! 

Make sure you keep hopping for lots more Pet Inspiration for you!
