Woof You!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! I have a puppy bag to enter into a few challenges today. I made this for my niece, who adores dogs. She's 10 and volunteers at a rescue shelter...a future vet we hope :) This puppy looks a little like her dog, Lady.


I used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels 23 for the foundation of the bag. The solid paper is from Core'dinations, the brown checked paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Rosy Stack, and the tan polka dot paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Blush stack. To make the box in the middle, I used a piece of 10 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper, and scored the 10 1/2" side at 4 1/2" and 6"; and the 6 1/2" side at 1 1/2" and 5".


I wanted it to look like the puppy was inside a picture frame, so I used Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles. Once the rectangle cut, I used the paper the rectangle was cut from and trimmed the edges and then popped it up with foam tape for a little dimension. I lightly inked the outside of the frame with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress ink and then darker on the deckled rectangle. the adorable puppy is from Four-Legged Friends (the cart I am giving away...click HERE to enter!!) cut at 4". I attached all of his layers with foam tape and added googly eyes.


The tag is a Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 10, inked with Walnut Distress Ink. The heart is a charm I picked up at Hobby Lobby. "Woof you" is from K Andrew Designs All About Animals stamp set:

I'm entering the bag in the following challenges:
  1. Cooking With Cricut Challenge #79 - Make Me Laugh (funny quote, poem or saying)
  2. Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge # - Out Like a Lamb (gentle animal)
  3. Made Especially For You - Distress Ink
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I will have another post on Saturday so I can thank some friends for blog awards before I leave for a week-long vacation at the ocean. I have a few posts scheduled while I am gone, but I won't be able to stop by and see all of your amazing projects. I promise to catch up when I get back :)

  43. Cute! This looks just like my Shadow! (My dog, not my real shadow...lol). I'm a little upset with him though, he snipped at me today! All I was doing was trying to get a treat out his mouth, gez, can't imagine what that was about!

    I hope you have a fabulous trip Lisa! Enjoy that beach and don't feel bad for one second about your good blogging friend from Minnesota who is freezing her "junk in the trunk" off! Ha ha..I'm just kidding, but do have a safe trip! We'll miss you!
