Triangle Doggie Layout

I finally created a layout using an idea from a Close To My Heart live crop event. I love the triangles and the effect that is created. 

The background was splattered with Red and Lagoon Shimmer Brushes. The papers are from Sweet Safari and the Mix-In paper packs plus there are two colours of cardstock. Each is cut in a smaller size than the previous piece and then layered together. I chose a black and white photo of my doggie and added some flowers that were stamped and fussy cut. I also masked and stamped the sentiment plus added some stamped hearts and gold gems. The journaling was written using a Charcoal journaling pen so it would be a little lighter than using black. 

Products used are all Close To My Heart: 

Paper: Sweet Safari Paper Pack, Mix-In Paper Pack, White Daisy Cardstock, Sundance Cardstock, Lagoon Cardstock

Stamps: Every Bit of Wonderful, Hey, Hi, Hello, Wishing You Everything, Howdy Neighbour 

Inks: Candy Apple, Avocado, Lagoon, Espresso Pigment Ink

Accessories: Red Shimmer Brush, Lagoon Shimmer Brush, Sundance Shimmer Brush, Gold Embellishing Thread, Gold Glitter Gems, Charcoal Journaling Pen, Tri-Blend Markers, Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder




  1. So sweet! Masking makes me break out in hives, but you make it look effortless. :)

  2. Ah, what a great way to honor Mika! And what a great photo of her. I'm in awe of how you mask to create multi-colored sentiments - lots of patience and tedium and with the triangles as well. Mine would have to be all off-center, hahaha, tipsy triangles! Fab layout, xoxo

  3. Oh my goodness, what an inspiring page Alyson! I love the colourful almost patchwork style of the background with your expert splattering and perfectly placed embellishments. I really want to make an album about my little Eva too :) Vicky x

  4. This just makes me smile! Mika is such a sweetie, and I love your design!! I keep wanting and trying to make a memory album for Kiwi but every time I look through his photos I start to cry. Hoping this will soon get better so I can make his album.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
