Layout (first) of Bailey

Hello again. As mentioned in my previous post, I was approached by Theresa, theScrapbooking Queen, to be a guest designer on her blog. Well, actually it’s not really HER blog, it’s her li’l Yorkie, Penelope’s blog. (I just know Bailey would love to play w/ her.)

Anyway, Penelope’s blog is called “Princess Penelope” (see her blog button on right sidebar) and she has guest designers on every Friday. Here is my contribution:-



Just to let you know, this is my very first LO that I have ever done. And it only seemed apropos to make it of my sweet li’l Bailey.

For those of you who don’t already know, Bailey is a li’l rescue, sent to me from heaven by my dear, sweet Sasha, whom I lost 2 yrs. ago. I was in a really bad way when I lost my Sasha, so Bailey basically rescued me, instead of the other way ‘round.

When we first got Bailey, he took a shine to one of Sasha’s toys:- a li’l chick. Here he is cuddling the li’l chick. Isn’t that the cutest thing ever?? Hence, that's what I centered my LO around.

Bailey is telling the li’l chick:- “I paws-itively LOVE you”! And the li’l chick is returning the love by wearing a “Puppy Love” collar.

Tools/Items:-

Cricut Imagine
Cricut Imagine Cartridge – Imagine More
Cricut Cartridges – see below
Glue – regular; ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock – white (for the Imagine)
Patterned Paper
Doggie stickers
Googly eyes
Popdots

Cricut Cartridges

Beyond Birthdays – I Love You
Create a Critter - chick
Four-Legged Friends – doggie

I used components from the “Paws-itively the best things” frame from the “Imagine More” cart. The other designs were from the Cricut carts., listed above.

Bailey’s name in paw prints is created with the “JLR Pawrty Hearty” font.

Also, I am giving away some blog candy. You don’t need to be a follower of my blog to win but I would love it, if you were. It’s a “Flower Alphabet” clear stamp set by Mary Engelbriet. Her famous “flower motif” is on each letter. Here’s a pic of it:-

This give-away will end on Friday, Sept. 2nd. at 9:00 P.M., PST. So be sure to enter on this post for your chance to win. Please ensure you include some way for me to get hold of you, should you win. Good luck! And thanks for joining me on my first LO and first guest appearance on a blog. Don’t forget to visit both Princess Penelope’s blog and her momma, Theresa’s blog.

Puppy Kiss

Hiya! Did you happen to notice that cute li’l doggie, wearing a crown? (on my side-bar) Well, I have a li’l hint as to what that means:-

I’ve been given a “puppy kiss”. . . . .

cuz I was asked to be a guest designer on someone’s blog. I was soooooo touched. I’ll have MORE about this on Friday, Aug. 26th. And. . . . . I’ll have some blog candy! So be sure to stop by, this coming Friday!! :-)

Cricut Cartridge Checklist Addendum

Hey, guess what? There’s going to be a NEW WAY of using my Cricut Cartridge Checklist.

A gal on the MB contacted me, asking what the new cart’s were for the entire month of July because she doesn’t have a chance to come to the MB very often.

I asked her if she was able to alter/manipulate my Checklist, once downloaded and she said “yes”, that she was able to insert rows and then add the new carts --- which got my li’l brain thinking:- (which can be a scary place to be at times) LOL :-)

From now on, each time I update my Cartridge Checklist, I’m also going to attach a list of JUST the carts. that I added. They will have the “link to Cricut.com” so all one has to do is cut/paste into their own existing Checklist --- instead of wasting trees by printing off the Checklist each and every time. :-)

Do you think this will be more feasible for you? Would love to hear any and all thoughts on this.

I’m going to give it a go right here and now. :-) Here are the 5 carts that were just released, plus the Hello Kitty ones, which I had inadvertently left off the list originally.

Please let me know if this works for you or not. Thanks!! :-)
