It's All About the Dogs Today

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy National Dog Day. Yep, if you didn't know August 26th is the day that's all about the dogs. In honor of the special day, the theme at Sisters in Stamping is dogs. I have to admit, I was in a panic because I don't have any dog stamps and was ready to bow out of today's post when I got the brilliant idea that I have a dog and can use some of her pictures to make a scrapbook page.

Yep, you heard that right, a scrapbook page. I know, you haven't seen a page on this blog in a long time. I honestly don't know when the last time I made a page was. It's been that long. It actually felt really good to make a page and get some pictures off the pile and onto a page. Earlier this year, my oldest son, Noah, actually commented that I don't scrapbook anymore and he really liked it. Guess it's time to get back to it.

These pictures were taken a few years ago at my nephew's circus themed birthday party. My sister in law set up a great photo booth with circus type props to get pictures taken. Guess it's the photographer in her coming out. (BTW, I love that the in-law's are photographers and I am able to get great pictures without too much worry, thanks Danielle and Oak) Isn't Sasha just the cutest and well-behaved pup to sit there and get a nice picture? She was also a good sport with Jonah putting the giant sunglasses on her face. She didn't move or try to take them off.

Just a close-up of a few elements on the page. The Badges & Banners stamp set and coordinating punch was perfect for the title of this page (Sasha's name) I stamped the striped badge, punched it out and then stamped the letter in black right on top of it. Then for some added dimension, I punched out a black badge and offset it behind the striped badge.

For this one, I stamped the best friend badge, punched it out and backed it with a designer paper badge and a white badge. The circle NO. 1 was stamped on white cardstock and punched out. I just cut strips of real red cardstock to make it match the background in the pictures.

For more dog inspired projects head over to Sisters in Stamping. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget Friday, September 9th is the Holiday Catalog Bingo. You're not going to want to miss it. Let me know that you are coming soon.
