Hi scrappy people, I’m back on the blog sharing this purrrfectly cute layout…

Do you have some cute photos of your pets but don’t have any ideas how to scrap them? @lisafonseca1985 scrapped a photo of her cat, using a leopard pattern cutfile from @paigetaylorevans and creating a super cute little cat by paper-piecing and hand-stitching, using the cutest @pinkpaislee collection, Little Adventurer. #littleadventurer #pinkpaislee #lisafonseca #12x12layoutThe idea to make this layout came when I saw a new cut file by Paige Evans. It’s a Leopard Background cut file. I love animal patterns and I thought it would be so cute to document a photo of my cat.

Then I let my Silhouette cut it out of a white 12×12 sheet. I chose some papers that I wanted to use to back the spots of the cut-out pattern. I wanted to go primarily with the Little Adventurer collection but also wanted to add some other colors. I thought the Turn the Page collection would be a great match. So I chose eight papers from the two collections, cut 6×2 pieces, placed them on my cutting mat, and let the machine cut all the pieces to fill the spots. (I cut those out slightly bigger than the other spots, so that I could put some glue around them and adhere them to the main paper). Then I backed the whole thing.

Then I started creating my paper-pieced cat. As always, I cut out the different parts out of different patterned papers, put everything together adhering it to a teal paper, stitching some parts, and cut around it leaving a border.

When I placed the cat and the photo on the layout, I was a little bit lost at first though… I didn’t really know how and where to place them… nothing seemed right to me… It took me some time to figure out the exact placement of the two elements. But I had to add something else to make it really work. I still had a sheet left of this beautiful flower patterned paper from the Turn the Page collection. They were the perfect colors to add to the layout. I cut some out and started placing them around the page.

For my title, I used the Thickers from Little Adventurer and the speciality sheet from the same collection. That speciality paper has a gold glitter alpha on it. The letters are perfect to cut out and they are so pretty.

I found a funny quote on Pinterest and wrote that on my page using the different letters.

Then I made some splatters using teal Color Shine.
