Just Stay Cute

I used to hate cats a while back but somehow I started to like cats since I have 2 feline fur-kids, Tuffie & Tobes 4 years ago. Pretty strange how I wanted to have cats as pets. Now they are like our "human" babies! We love both of them to death. Alrighty, back to the layout. Today I am sharing a layout I created of Tuffie... 


He is one big boy, he weighs around 6.5kg. Loves to be cuddled, a lap warmer and extremely a sweetheart when he is with me :) For this layout, I used the blocking technique. All you have to do is to cut your papers into square/rectangular shape and arrange it according to your heart's desire :) Of course, it is created with the SC July kit "Mind The Gap"

I just love making flower with the Fabrips :) Those lil beach houses are so adorable, no?

Oh yeah, at the butterfly card post... someone asked how I created the flower. Let me show you. It's very simple & you'll love it :) Note: All the below products used can be found in the SC July "Mind The Gap" kit that you can get a Scrappin Studio store. 

First, you will have to cut a strip of the Fabrips. Fabrips is seriously cool because it is made of fabric and it also comes with backing adhesive. So easy, just snip and you are set to go. 

Punch/cut a circle and start to pleat as you go around. My circle is 1.5".
Tip: Your pleat does not have to be perfect!

Once you are done with 1 layer, overlap it a lil to continue on the second layer.
Tip: The smaller the circle, the more rounds you can go. The bigger, you'll get lesser rounds :)

Once you are finished with layer 2, tuck it in or just leave it where it ends.

Voila, you are done! Here I added a paper lace that I punched out and a MME button. You can try this with ribbon, lace, paper ... the possibilities are endless. Hope you enjoy the flower-making :)

Enjoy the rest of your week & happy creating!
Xoxo Jessy

Such an adorable kitty!!! We used to have a kitty (rescued from the office building) but we had to give her away after a few months cos the condo won't let us keep pets *sob*sob* Really loving your fabrip flower ... can't wait to try it out :) Thanks for sharing Jessy!
