Journal Cards for cat album

This cookies and milk tag was fun to make!

 I drew a glass shape onto a piece of acetate
and cut it out with scissors. 
I glued a piece of white card stock to it.

The cookie is a paper punched small oval
that is inked and has dark brown splatters
stamped onto it to resemble a chocolate chip cookie
- or oatmeal raisin if you prefer;)

Tag topper punch for the tag
with a piece of stitched grosgrain ribbon
and scrap of patterned paper to finish it off.

My first attempt at using the second hand 
Design and Cut electronic cutter I bought
 last fall to cut out custom text.
It didn't work as I expected it would.
I assumed that since the text was all joined together,
it would cut it out in one piece. Nope.
Each letter was cut out individually
and on top of that, the cutter software
interpreted the brushstrokes of the 
font I used and cut wee little bitty "holes"
into each letter ! I don't have a clue as to
how to use this machine the way I expected it
would work. I better start doing some online
research before I try it again. 
I truly thought that since I found a font
that was all connected, the word would
be cut out as one piece. I also assumed
that it would only cut the outlines of the
font, not try to cut out portions of 
the inside of the strokes, too. 
Sooooooo, to remedy it, I traced and 
hand cut every single letter! 

Putting to use some stickers that were in a 
grab bag I bought at a yard sale last fall.
I've never really used stickers.
I collected some back in the 80's though ;) 

This is a combination of two different stamp sets.
I made this journal card to go in the pocket page
that has photos of a cat sleeping on cars.

More old Stampin' Up! images were used
to create embellishments for these photos
on this pocket page. 

Store bought element I added ribbon to.

I have more journal cards to make,
so there will be another post to come soon.

Thanks for looking =)


  1. I love your creativity,!,
