Here is Rossi, he was a beautiful cat. I know some people dont like cats, but he was more like a dog, even going to the door to see who was visiting! We got him when he was about 9 weeks old and I knew then he was going to be a heartbreaker... and he was!
I wont go into detail but Rossi was only 16 months old when we had to make the 'hardest decision' - I am in tears writing this - we only had him for a short time but I still miss him every day. Anyway, enough of me rambling...
Here is a photo with the journalling tabs pulled out.
The photos were trimmed to the size I wanted, and then layers of Bravo Burgundy and So Saffron cardstock were trimmed to leave thin boarders around each photo. I doodled lines using my markers in Bravo Burgundy on the So Saffron layers, trying to keep as close to the edge as possible.
I positioned the largest layer for each photo where I wanted them to sit on the Taken With Teal card and then secured them with snail adhesive. Then I used my marker again to doodle around the shape left, directly onto the Taken with Teal card.
To create the background on the Taken With Teal card, I randomly stamped the flower and the spotty images from the Bird on a Branch stamp set in versamark ink. Where there were gaps near the doodling, I put a sheet of paper over to protect the doodling and create a quick mask.
When I was happy with the effect I built up the backing layers and the photos, overlapping them in different ways. Before securing each photo down, I made a pocket by leaving one edge without any adhesive. This was to allow for a tabbed journal to be hidden behind each photo - you just pull the tab out to read the message.
Just a couple of quick reminders - There are only a few days left to take advantage of the SU offer of getting the Starter Kit for £125 (and a free stamp set from me!) full details here.

After a request from several people, I will be holding an Absolute Beginners Cardmaking Class on the 15th May 1pm til 3pm. Again, please email me for details - it is a class for absolute beginners, so its perfect if you fancy learning a new hobby.
