Highlight His Favorite Activity

Capture your pet doing what he does best! We kept this layout simple by printing journal text on a solid sheet of paper along with the headline. Highlight the headline by adding stickers over the printed text. Use a simple patterned paper for an extra pop of color. For an easy embellishment, hand-sew buttons to the page.

Your First Impressions

Capture the emotional arrival of your new pet. Use a simple patterned paper to feature the large picture of a new puppy. Print the journaling on transparent paper to make it easy to read over the pattern. Use stickers for your headline, and as a boarder at the top and bottom of the page.

Save the memories of your cuddly kitty. Keep the layout simple,with a black background. Use circle die cuts to add color to the page. For a unique touch, create a circle with a small border and allow the photos to be framed within.

The Growing Pains

From puppy to fully grown, save the memories of your dog's growth. Try golden paper to highlight beautiful photos of your loved one. For a unique headline, paint metal letters and molding with copper paint, and then jade paint. Make sure to give them plenty of drying time before you attach them to the layout.
