As I mentioned, I used My Digital Studio to create this page. It will eventually become part of a family album and there will be some pages with her when she was little. You can also create this page using traditional Stampin’ Up! TM products. Here is what you’ll need:
- Pretty in Pink Card Stock
- Bermuda Bay Stripe (Closest Designer Series Paper is Thoroughly Modern)
- Black Grosgrain Ribbon
- Man’s Best Friend Stamp Set (Fire Hydrant and “BARK, BARK” sentiment)
- Cheep Talk Stamp Set
- Modern Label Punch
- Silver Brads
The layout and design is pretty straight forward. This is an 8×8 layout. I did not resize any of the elements as I incorporated them onto the page so they should be true size. The journaling text is Segoe Print font. I added the Bermuda Stripe as the background and then added the Pretty in Pink card stock as a page element, cropping to the size I wanted. I used the Bermuda Stripe because it is similar to her collar design. I picked the Pretty in Pink because even though I’m not a pink person, I think pink is a great color for Laika. Just really looks great with her black coat. However, my husband hates the idea of anything pink for our dog so she does not have any pink accessories. Using Pretty in Pink was my way of getting some pink in my puppy’s life.
The modern label punch has Laika’s name layored on top with a mat and shadow added to make it stand out on the page. To do this with traditional products, you could select your font style and print directly onto your cardstock using your computer and then punch with your modern label punch. You can also take a similar approach with your journaling if you like.
I decided to use the “Bark Bark” sentiment since her name means “barker” in Russian. I just thought it was appropriate. Plus, Laika is a really happy dog. I don’t think I’ve ever met an unhappy lab, but Laika is especially happy.
There you have it, a project from My Digital Studio and my wonderful puppy. Both are among my favorite things!
God Bless and Happy Stampin!
