Happy #FeatureFriday, everyone! We sat down with CM Product Designer Alex to take a closer look at her design inspiration for the NEW Best in Show collection, and also got other behind-the-scenes details such as which artist inspired the collection’s artwork, how the dogs on the dog designer paper were selected, what she would change about the collection if she could (hint: it’s funny!) and – the age-old question – is she a dog or cat person?! In Alex’s words, “This [collection] is for the kitty cats and the puppers!” Let’s check it out…
All you pet lovers out there – have you seen the new Best in Show pet collection that just launched today?! To celebrate all the spunky, silly and downright adorable things our four-legged family members do, today we’re putting our paws together to create a layout that’ll work for cats and fur babies of all kind (just switch out the cat papers and stickers for another Best in Show paper and sticker of your choice). So… who is excited to check out this layout? Let’s go!
Fast2Fab Albums have quickly become my favourite way to scrapbook! I love how quickly and easily the pages come together, helping me stay caught up on my projects. Plus, with the matching papers and embellishments, I can add a little personalisation and flexibility to the printed pages. Sometimes I’ll keep it super simple with just my photos and journaling; other times I’ll have more fun with it, adding borders, titles and stickers to spice it up.
Our pets are important members of our family and photos of them are always treasured. It can be fun taking photos of our pets, but also frustrating! Just like children they don’t always do what we want them to, when we want them to. I have come up with a few tips that you may find helpful.
Furry friends are the best, aren’t they? Many of us love our pets so much we take oodles of pictures of them and dedicate entire albums to capturing the special bonds we share with them. The Fur Buddies Paper and Stickers are PURR-fectly wonderful for those fun and lovable pages, and I couldn’t wait to get my PAWS on the new Paw Prints Border maker Cartridge to make some borders. Hope you DIG ’em!
I did not grow up with any pets. Well, a parakeet. Does that count?
Unfortunately, I grew up with asthma and allergies, which meant no extra dander in the house. It made me sad to not be able to even pet the neighbor’s dogs or cats. I had no idea what I was missing out on until I outgrew the allergies and asthma in my adult years.
My boys begged and begged for a furry friend.
Perhaps it’s beautiful weather where you live, or raining cats and dogs, wherever you are the Autumn weather certainly brings layering of clothing for the fluctuating temperature. Maybe more than one layer, possibly even two or three layers.
So, while we are layering on our clothing, let’s talk about LAYERING our borders on our scrapbook pages.
When I saw the new Paw Print Border Maker Cartridge and Fur Buddies Paper and Stickers, I immediately envisioned the page that I wanted to make for this blog post. Lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with using jumbo hearts in a variety of ways. And today I’m going to share with you a technique that I enjoyed teaching to the attendees at my recent weekend retreat.
