Karen here today. I’m sharing both a card and a Sidekick-sized scrapbook layout I made with one of Joset’s new critters, the Beaver! He’s super sweet, and I thought he would make a great embellishment for my scrapbook page for a day out in the garden with my guy and his dog. He also is, of course, a great embellishment for those cards!
First up is the card I made. I used 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock to cut the pieces for the Beaver and colored them up with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. The eyes and nose are colored with Copic Markers. I used a birthday sentiment from the Life is Better on the Farm Collection and cut it out with a Planner Label die. I thought the G45 paper was perfect with that sweet Beaver.
On the “back” of my Sidekick sized scrapbook page, I used the Beaver again to decorate my page. The base of this page is cut with Sidekick Essentials 4 and the scalloped overlay is Sidekick Essentials 12. The plants I used to embellish this page are also in Sidekick Essentials 12.
The Beaver on my scrapbook page was cut mostly with Kraft cardstock (the eyes are done in White Soft Finish Cardstock), but I colored it with the same Distress Inks. I usually lay the pieces out as I would be gluing them together and then divide them up by color. I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back of the pieces on top so I can make putting it together easier.
On the front of the page is a pic of my guy and his dog. I used lettering from Planner Essentials 23 and 37. The shovel and the clippers are from Sidekick Essentials 12 and are colored with Copic markers. I added a Fitted Heart to the top. My guy and his dog are two of my favorites!
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my projects.
Craftily yours, Karen
