Pug Hugs

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges.

Apparently May is Photo month, let's include something that relates to photos this week … a card including a real photo, faux photos, selfie style stamps, cameras etc.

I love using photos of my grand puppy Frankie to create special cards or keepsakes. My daughter takes so many photos of her that it is always easy to find new photos to play with.

For my project today I used Tonic Studio's Rotating Memoirs die set to make a rotating album.

Here is a quick video to see my project in action.

To decorate the two sides of my rotating album, I added grass using Lawn Fawn's Grassy Hillside Border. I added pug images using stamps included in the Whimsy Stamps Pet's Woof stamp set which was in the February Card Kit.

The large paw print on the front page and the sentiment is also from the Whimsy Stamps card kit.

I added photos of Frankie to the top portion of each page. The sentiments on the underside of each page are from either the Whimsy Stamps stamp set or an older There She Goes stamp set which is no longer available.

This is the second Rotating Memoirs project I have created. I found this one easier thanks to having the correct red liner tape and smooth cardstock.

I couldn't  resist adding the photo of Frankie just after she has had a bath, it looks so funny!

One last page of my rotating album. I had to use up one last image from the pug stamp set, so I added it to the last page of my album.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Which die set did you use to spell out pug hugs?

Chloe and Co Shop, I would have used the hugs sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps puppy Paws die set, die cutting the hugs twice. Cutting off the h & s from one of the diecuts and adding the p from one of the other sentiments in the set
