You Had Me at Cats // 12x12 Layout Share

July 05, 2016

Hello friends! I hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July (if you're in the USA)! Today I'm sharing a layout inspired by the classic red, white, and blue color scheme without the themed photos! Who says you can't use red, white, and blue on non-themed layouts? Here's an overview of the layout!

I really tried to capture my love for cats in this layout. While I'm at college and away from my cats at home, we go and visit the shelter cats up for adoption. I love visiting them! I suppose you could call me a crazy cat lady ;). This layout like I said earlier, features a red, white, and blue theme without having anything to do with the fourth of July. I think that it's important to note that you can use whatever color schemes you want and that certain ones are not for just certain occasions.

I started off this layout with some kraft paper and this pretty blue diagonal striped paper from Basic Grey's Fact & Fiction collection. I wanted to do something fun with the striped paper, so I ended up cutting two opposite corners off! Then to add more detail, I used some border strips on those edges as well. I used some really old K&Company papers behind my photo, then started to embellish!

I love embellishment clusters so much! This one uses felt from Oriental Trading, a butterfly from Michael's, an arrow from Michael's, a flag from Basic Grey, some stickers from Pretty Little Studio, and a few stickers from Teresa Collins - Hello My Name Is collection.

My layout title is a result from a Studio Calico tiny word sticker and some fun bingo chip like Thickers by American Crafts. I hope you enjoyed this layout and are inspired to use themed color schemes for non-themed layouts! Thanks for stopping by!
