#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Playful Pets Layered Card with Kitty Assistance!
In normal circumstances, I’d title this card ‘easy’ layered card. Except this one was anything but easy. Not because the project was complicated, but because I had a kitty assistant.
Mostly Berry (who is a Female Bengal) sleeps in my office and usually only wakes up when I’m filming. She only occasionally joins me in actual crafting but it had to be just as I’d got out my Playful Pets paper.
She literally rolled herself all over it and then plonked herself right down in the middle of my grid paper and I worked in a space about 6″ square.
I couldn’t possibly move her….
There was a close call with the paper snips when I was trimming the black and white twine, but when it came to choosing which image to die cut, I had to get the one closest to her colouring as I could.
And actually, the ‘scaredy cat’ look of the die cut shape is about right for her. She’s actually a very timid cat and isn’t hugely fond of noise, hence her spending most of her time in my office, or where I am.
She’s quite happy to be stroked by other members of the family when she’s on my office chair, but otherwise she prefers to stay away from noise.
My cats are very much part of our family and they have their personalities like any other animal. My instagram feed is testament to that, so of course, I had to have her check out her card. She approved…
I hope you enjoyed this project, I absolutely adore what I do and spend many hours working on designs, new projects, new ideas and more.
