Welcome to Day One of our Release Party for the new collection,
If you are a dog owner or dog lover than you are sure to love this collection.
The papers & embellishments are so fun and you are in for a week full of incredible inspiration from our Design Team.
So grab your cup of coffee 'cause it's a long one!
Let's get started today.
When I saw how colorful this collection is I knew immediately which photo of our dog I wanted to use. This photo has been lying in my drawer for ages, but I never found the "just right" papers ... until now! The colors of Jippie's toy match the colors of this collection exactly! Do you want to know a fun detail? The toy was originally a present for my youngest son, then 2 years old, but as soon as Jippie saw the toy she grabbed it and wouldn't let go! Maybe she knew it was a toy made for dogs?

For my cards I always like to layer a lot of different papers on top of each other with the doily as the finishing touch. And I just had to add the chipboard sticker of the doggie ... isn't she the cutest?
My family doesn't include a dog (much to my daughter's dismay) but that didn't exclude me from being able to use this collection! On a recent trip to Paris to visit my sister, her son provided me with the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the fun elements in "Good Dog". Rather than journal in one of the journal spots, I fussy cut it providing a frame for my picture. The paws are jazzed up a touch to highlight the heart and the paw print is the perfect size to fit in a medium Brad Daddy.
"Hello Miss Lucy"
Our family loves dogs. The newest addition to our family is Lucy. She is an English Cream Golden Retriever. The Good Dog collection was THE perfect collection to use for Lucy's Welcome home photo. This paper is just so much fun. The designs for the paper are just incredible and I am in love with the embellishments. For this layout I went a little crazy and used almost all of the papers in this collection. I just kept layering the papers because they are just so awesome.

So many of our friends have Fur Babies. Whenever we go to someone's house I like to have a little treat for the four legged friends. This little Treat Bag is just perfect to bring a couple of milk bones and it looks just so darn cute. To make this bag I used my Silhouette and cut the template out. I then used some clear acetate packaging from the die cut shapes and cut it to fit the window ( I am a very frugal scrapper and I always use every part of the product- even the packaging!). Next I adhered the bag together with my I Bond. This way I know the bag will not come apart. Finally I embellished the bag. I can't wait to bring this little treat to our friend's house!

When I cut out my template for my Treat Bag, I was left with a cool die cut piece where the window goes. I never like to throw any paper away so I decided to use this great piece and make a tag. I made another die cut slightly larger to create a layered tag. I then used my Snag'Ems and stamped my sentiment. I then then stamped the image again on some white cardstock in red ink and cut it out and layered it on top so that the read heart would stand out. Finally I had to bling it up just a bit and added some red hearts using my I Rock.

"Paw Prints On My Heart"
Designer Tip: When cutting a mat for your photo, add a v-cut on one side to create a large banner. You can also layer different sized banners for a dramatic effect. Look for small images on the patterned paper that you are using. Use the i-top to create your own personalized brad that matches perfectly with your layout!
