There is so much to love about the Elle’s Studio September kit, especially if you’re lucky enough to share your life with a cat. The kit includes adorable cat-themed tags and stamps, which I happily put to use on a page about our family’s resident feline, Koko.
The super-cute “Meow” tag prompted the page, and three other tags gave me the idea for the journaling. The first tag is the green “Today Was” tag at the top of the page, which initially read, “Today Was a Great Day,” but I over-wrote it with a second tag that read, “Purrfect.” Together, this tag combo (all from the September kit) gave me the idea of focusing on a “purrfect” day in the life of my cat. I didn’t have much trouble at all figuring out how to organize the journaling thanks to the “Morning/Afternoon/Evening” tag from the September kit, too. I generated a list actions that are all part of my cat’s daily routine. She pretty much has a “purrfect” day every day.
The background of the layout incorporates paw print and heart stamps from the “Adorbs” stamp set, combined with accents and patterned paper from the new Elle’s Studio Thankful collection. I painted over the center of a sheet of the polka-dotted B-side of the Thankful “Stripes” patterned paper, stamped over it, and then cut the paper into strips and worked the strips in the layout. I like how the added color adds a playful boldness to the page.
