Puppy love

So I know I haven't really talked about the fact that Creating Keepsakes will cease to have print issues after the November/December issue. 
I am still in denial.
So let's not discuss it yet and talk about happier times instead!
How about that fabulous cover on the September/October issue??!

I thought I would share one of the layouts I have in this issue.
This layout was in the digital version of the issue and was in a feature about creating unique titles. 

Supplies: Patterned paper (Fancy Pants), Cardstock (Creative Memories), Chipboard & Tape (Bella Blvd), Journaling/die cut tags (Chic Tags), Foam "Thickers" (American Crafts), Borders (Fancy Pants, SEI). 
I cut the "love" out of a piece of denim. 
I have to admit that this was not the easiest title I've ever made.
But I do love the look of it!
If you want to try something like this, I recommend choosing your title wisely.
"Love" was a relatively easy word to cut out.
But there are some letters that are probably tricky to cut and I would not have wanted to cut many more letters!

Here are a couple more detail shots of the page. 

And that's that!
OK come back tomorrow because I have a cool post to share and it will involve a GIVEAWAY!!

Gretchen! 1st, I'm so sorry about your sweet Shada! With their unconditional love, pets are like family and hold such a big place in our's hard to lose them.

I do love your LO title, especially the frayed edges...makes it look nicely worn & homey. Your LO's always have such a great flow to them, I like how you nicely fill up the pages, but the pictures still always stand out as the stars.

Don't even get me started on all these digital mags...I love my tech stuff, but dang I get sick of always looking at a screen. I just like to hold a book/mag. ;')
