TIPsy Tuesday - Filling in the Letters

Typically, I throw those little inserts from from my raw chipboard in a bin. One of these days there will be a TIPsy Tuesday on what to do with those, when I figure it out :-)   Today's tip is a simple and hardly, original one.  You can color in the middle of the "p", "e", "o", "a", "g" etc and add a little more punch to your title.

For "pet", I painted the letters red and the middles gray.  After the gray dried, I stamped in white craft ink to go with all the other polka dots on this page.  You could also cover them in pattern paper or just use pattern paper behind the centers of your letters.  It just adds a little bit of fun.

For the rest of the page...

the layout is based on Shimelle's sketch for her 4x6 Photo Love class in March.  I opted for the 4x4 version of the photos.  Otherwise, I stuck pretty close to her example.  See the class here:  4x6-photo-love-with-shimelle-laine/  For one of the journaling spots, I created my own with the Cricut.

It was great getting some use out of my scallop stamp set.  I keep forgetting I have it.  This Cats set from Inkadinkado has been used quite a bit.  Colorbox fluid chalk ink does such a great job!   The bow on the kitty is not in anyway meant to imply that MY cat would wear such a thing.  If I tried to put a bow on him, I'd be needing serious bandages on me!


"Daddy can open doors, he can actually get Jasper to respond the word "Out," and he can get out the fake bird for a game of catch any old time.  But when it comes to love, Mommy is the only one who gets to pet the cat."  For some reason, Jasper does not really want Lenny to pet him.  Oh well, it's his kingdom and we only live here.

Thanks for visiting today, hope you will come back soon!
