Just for the Record, He Fits! | Paper Issues Secret Life of Pets

This month, Paper Issues has a challenge called Secret Life of Pets, and I had the perfect subject for a layout! My pastor has the most adorable dogs, especially this guy, named Buster. She's always posting pictures of Buster on Facebook, and I always write that I want to put him in my pocket, and she always laughs.

I recently ordered this stamp from a French company when my husband went to Paris last month, with a layout in mind to tell this story. I used Vicki Boutin's Wildflower and Honey collection.

The page came together pretty quickly. I stamped the pocket on this paper and cut it out. I fussy-cut Buster so he looked like he's sitting inside the pocket. I mounted the white background on this colorful paper from the collection to tie all the colors together.

I mostly used ephemera die cuts, creating a little scene in which to place my pocket. I gave them dimension by adhering them with pop dots. The "record" was in that same pack, and I just happened to have a stamp that had the words "just for the" (this phrase continued with the word halibut, but I just cut out the part I needed).

That ruler came with the die cuts, and I thought it was a perfect element to tell the story. I added some enamel dots from my stash and a couple of shimmery golden plus signs from the Wildflower and Honey Thickers.

I hope you'll grab some fun pictures of your pets and play along. Make sure you share your creation in our Facebook group for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.
