"Happy Tails" BoBunny Pet Collection with Shelly Maxwell

Four-legged friends are the best so don't leave your pets out of your scrapbooks! Capture their silly personality and character with BoBunny's pet line "Happy Tails". Here's a layout I created of our family dog, "Blake". We adopted him two years ago from a no-kill shelter in Iowa. Mostly, he just lays around:
 Grab the whole "Happy Trails" collection at The Scrapbooking Studio in Moline, IL! Check out all the projects, layouts, and cards you could create using this huge line of papers and embellishments. Use American Craft Thickers to create quick and easy titles.
 These fun dog silhouettes make great page embellishments when they are layered mixed with BoBunny Happy Trails Buttons and twine.
 Here kitty, kitty...this one is an adorable Iowa Farm cat named, "Julianne" in honor of my daughter, Julianne, who was visiting a friend at her home and just happened to visit the new litter of kittens and was able to help name them. That was a few years ago...

 I fussy cut a larger sheet of Happy Trails paper to create this border along the left edge of the paper. I also used the WeR Mini 8 Trellis punch to create the round, doily like, photo mat seen below.
 Journaling cards taken from the  papers work great to create pet themed cards:
They turn out adorable both inside and out:
 BoBunny Buttons with layered journaling cards create this thoughtful card inside.
 Grab your Copics, some Spica glitter markers, a Maya Road Canvas Star Coaster Album, and a few circle punches and you're ready to create a purse size mini-album:
 I added a few of the BoBunny buttons for embellishments, used the Spica Glitter pens to doodle.
 I fussy cut dog tags and pop-dotted them over die cut journaling spots. Copics and blending solution create matching background canvas pages.
 I used Zip Dry liquid adhesive to glue my paper pieces to the canvas album pages, then I used my Copic markers around the photo mats, I blended some of the colors with blending solution, and then added details with the Spcia Glitter pens. This fun Mini-Album is going to be a favorite of my families because it contains their beloved Blake!Thanks for checking out this months projects for The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL.
