Heartfelt Purr-Fect Pair

Good morning!
Aren't these sweet kitties so cute?  

White cardstock, London Fog Memento Ink, Purple Brilliance Ink,  Lavender cardstock, Pearlescent white cardstock, Viva D├ęcor Perlen-Pen Ice White, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Copic Markers: C1, C2, C3, B00, B01, B02, YG11, YG20,BV00, BV01, BV02, RV00, E50, E53,E42,E43,E44, yellow Dylusions spray ink.

</p><p> <b>Instructions: </b>
Card size: 6 X 6 5/8”.  Cut card base 12 X 6 5/8”, fold in half to make 6 X 6 5/8” card.  Cut a Pearlescent white 6 X 6 5/8” and glue to base.  Cut whit cardstock 5 3/4 X 6 3/8” then use the embossing folder (need to run through folder twice as it is not wide enough).  Glue embossed panel to card.  Cut 2 Petite Pocket Accents (wide die) out of Pearlescent then cut 2 narrow out of lavender.  Cut Daydream Bridge Die out of white.  Glue pocket accents dies and Daydream die to card, popping up Daydream die.  Cut large eyelet heart out of lavender and 1 Eyelet heart a bit smaller out of the pearlescent cardstock.  Pop up the lavender heart then glue the white Pearl heart to it.  Add Dots of Pearl-Pen Ice White to each intersection in the embossed panel.

Stamp Posies using Lu Lu Lavender and sponge color on then die cut and form (see video above), give and extra squeeze to each petal at the ends to form a new type flower.  Layer the flowers with 2 or 3 blossom layers and brush tips again with more Lu Lu Lavender ink.  Fill smaller flower centers with Prills and add dyed stamen to the centers of the larger flowers (I sprayed the stamen with yellow ink and dried completely before handling).

Glue the colored branches and kitties to the hearts then add the flowers.  Glue the flowers onto the branches and the swing ropes.  Stamp sentiment with Purple Brilliance and die cut then tuck into branch/flowers on the left side.  Glitter all the flowers and add a bit of glitter to card face.


Other Products:
White cardstock, ribbon,

Card size: 6 X 6”.  The top of this card is shaped so take a piece of 12 X 6” white, fold it in half then use the outside part of the Elegant Pocket Accents die over the fold leaving the top of the die off the fold so that it does not cut the card in half but leaves the fold in tack (about 1” of the fold).  Cut another panel for the front with the full die cut at the top and also a purple decorative paper front of the same cut.  Glue the purple to the card front,  cut a slit for the pocket and then glue this stack to  the front of the folded card base leaving the pocket section open to insert tag.  Cut 1 Elegant Pocket Accents including the corners in that set, out of white also cut 2 decorative Pocket Accents out of white.  Glue the decorative Elegant Pocket Accents to the top matching edges and glue the 2 Decorative Pocket Accents to the slit part of the front, one facing up, one facing down.   Glue corners to each of the bottom corners.

Stamp Happy birthday on a piece of white cardstock and use the long die in the Tickets and tags set to cut it out, shortening it to suit.  Cut the large tag from this set and the tag top out of white, the smaller tag and tag top out of decorative paper, cut one small oval tag from the decorative paper. Glue the decorative tag to the white and the same with the tag top, glue the small oval to the tag at the top after inserting a ribbon.

Stamp Lush Lilac blossoms sponge with purple and die cut, shape with Mold and glue green Prills to the centers of each blossom.  Stamp the small Lilac spray with Fern Green, sponge with Vivid Chartreuse and die cut.  Glue the sprays to the card, 1 on each side at the bottom, 1 on left top.  Glue Lilac blossom on top of sprays and a few on top of tag.  Randomly glitter the entire card.  Add some purple Prills in clusters along some of the Lilac blossoms.

Thanks for visiting today!

Here is some words to a song I really like.  "Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me
Oh the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God...
I couldn't earn it and I don't deserve it, still, You gave Yourself away..."

The 8 X 8 Insta-Album has all paper sizes on the pages for you so cut all the coordinating paper for the entire album.  Before gluing any paper in, glue all the magnets to designated spots and also decide where you want pockets to be so that you can cut the slots in the paper before gluing to the book. If you decide later that you want a pocket where you have already glued your paper you can still do it, it’s just much harder as you will have to use a blade to cut just the paper not the page where the pocket will go.  The pockets on these new dies have different slot opening shapes you can choose which is fun but just remember if you will be taking photos all the way in and out it might be best to just use the straight edge so that nothing gets bent putting it back in over and over.  The mats and pockets are all cut with kraft and pink cardstock.

The cover: Glue Tulip decorative paper down and cut kraft Lacy Diamond, pink eyelet diamond and photo with Basics Diamond.  Cut the Elegant Pocket Accents using kraft and pink background for top and bottom for the left side.  Also cut a piece of Jute/pearl trim to size.  For the right side of cover cut another piece of trim and 2 corners from the Elegant Pocket Accents from kraft  with pink background.  Stamp and color a pot and Tulips as well (stamp using Desert Sand and color with Copic Markers).  Pop up the pot and flowers.

Inside Cover, left side has the small pocket (Regal Pocket Accents) with the ornate topper cut from kraft.  Mat photo with pink and kraft. Open the flap just decorated and cut the Fanci-Fold pocket for the bottom panel, cut 2 corners for the top panel and mat a 4 X 6 photo with coordinating paper.  Cut 4 tags for the pocket on the bottom panel  and stamp them using Vibrant Fuchsia with the Today’s Quotes, add ribbon.  On the other side, right of Fanci-Fold pocket panel, Cut an Ornate Pocket Accent out of dark pink paper or coordinating paper, cut a kraft top trim.  Mat photo with kraft. This is all that is shown in photos but there are more panels so keep adding photos and decorative additions to each panel and flap on the left side of Insta-Album.

On the right side of album, top open page-Cut Regal frame out of kraft and back with pink. Cut photo to fit inside.  Open, decorate the other side top flap with the Adorn It, lift flap and decorate inside with a journaling panel and another photo with the bucket of tulips stamped, colored and die cut to embellish the photo. Move over to the right side [of the right side of album] and cut a kraft eyelet heart, pink heart and photo heart then stamp, color and die cut a bouquet of tulips to embellish photo.  Open up again where magnet has pages shut and decorate both left and right panels showing. Left side has an Eyelet Oval cut from kraft with the inside part of the Intricate Swirl Frame cut out of pink over the photo of tulips.  Open the flap and decorate with a sentiment, the inside part of the Regal Frame and a butterfly layered stamped on vellum, embossed with gold and colored on the wrong side with the darker pinks of the Copic markers.  Sentiment is stamped with Morocco on pink cardstock. The bottom part of this left side is another tulip photo matted with pink in the smaller pocket (Regal Pockets), 2 corners from Elegant Pocket Accents and the slot cut out from the larger Pocket (Adorn It Pocket).   On the right, fold all the way out flat, 2 narrow panels, both have the windmill photos embellished by the Fence stamped on kraft and the Tulip Cart stamped on white then colored and die cut along with the row of tulips from the Tulip Cart and Fence set.  One of the windmills is framed with the Hand-Stitched Accents.  Moving on to the left part of this fold out, cut 2 of the Adorn It Pocket Accents, 1 for the bottom flap and 1 for the top.  Mat a photo to slid into the pocket on the bottom flap (the top Adorn It is not made to be a pocket, just decoration.  Open these flaps to reveal the inside which is decorated with more photos.  The bottom inside uses the Eyelet Hearts and Basic Hearts to cut the photos, mats and embellishments.  This is all of the album photographed…There are extra sides to decorate on this side as well.  This 8 X 8 book hold a lot of decorations and photos…I love it for an all-in-one scrapbook.  Perfect for a special occasion or trip.
To finish this album, Add fibers, tags and beads to the bindings.
