Bark. Bark. Bark.

Last week was Pet Week on the Cricut Blog and I was so happy because I have been wanting to create a page about our sweet pup, Kiki. This little dog of ours has stolen our hearts. She is a friend to my kids when there is no one else around to play with, she is always there to offer a snuggle, and is always happy to see us. She has blessed our lives and we are so grateful for her!

I picked up this darling WOOF Mini Theme set by Echo Park Paper a little while ago and was happy to put it to use! I adore all of the pet related words watermarked on all of the patterns. Too cute! I used the Nate’s ABC’s cartridge to create the puppy and pet food bowl. I added definition to the dog with chalk and created his nose and eyes using pearl stickers. Next, I added rhinestones to the polka dots on the dog bowl. The circle cut behind the dog was embossed using the Cuttlebug machine and the Traffic Jam embossing folder. I used my scissors to cut out the “Bark” word bubbles from the other side of the striped patterned paper and added them around my puppies.

Normally, I would reach for buttons to accent this kind of page, but I wanted to add a girly touch since our dog is a girl . . . I found these rose brads from an American Crafts Dear Lizzy Christmas line in my stash and thought they added just enough of a feminine touch. 🙂

Thanks for coming by! Enjoy your Sunday!
