Hey everyone! It’s Kira and I am back with a 12×12 scrapbook layout featuring the Bork stamp set!
I know I had to use this stamp set on a layout about my dog, Folsom. Folsom is my 11 1/2 year old yellow lab. And in this photo he’s chewing on a stick. This may seem kind of mundane to most, but Folsom has never been a stick dog. He’s never chased them, chewed them, given them a second thought. Then he moves down to Texas and all he does is chase sticks the kids throw for him and chew them in the shady grass. So weird.
Anyway, I decided to start this layout with some photo strip cut files. I sized them so the little Bork dogs would fit nicely in the frames. I cut two frames the same size, one would be filled with dogs, the other would serve as a base for my photo of Folsom.
If you haven’t heard, I recently jumped on the Copics bandwagon. My husband even bought me a few more for Mother’s Day. I’m not great at coloring yet (so don’t judge!) but these dogs were perfect practice for me. After coloring quite a few puppies, these three made the final cut. I fussy cut around each pup, leaving a thin white border as if they were cut with a die cut machine.
I knew the photo frames needed to be backed with something, either patterned paper or stamping, well, clearly stamping won. I did a technique I love doing, creating a pattern with a phrase stamp. I used the phrase “Excuse me? Are you gonna eat that?” from the Fur Babies stamp set. I stamped it in various colors on some scrap smooth white cardstock. I bumped my photo strips up on foam and then layered the stamped cardstock beneath it.
I bumped my puppies up on foam and added one to each rectangle in the photo strip. I finished the layout off with some embellishing, a title, and some splatters.
Thanks for stopping by!
