Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here today and I'm super stoked to be sharing my first layout using the new Doggone Cute collection. We have 3 dogs and they're so special to our family. I take so many photos of them and this collection is perfect to document all of the special memories we have with them. Here's my page:

I love all of the bright and bold colors in this collection and thought it would be fun to create a simple mixed media background to match them. Using a thick piece of white textured cardstock as my base, I sprayed on some Shimmerz Paints sprays from my stash. I kept it simple and didn't add any extra water and left the ink sprays as is. I really like the look of it!

Next, I pulled a few stamps from the Doggone Cute coordinating stamp set and stamped them all around my background for some extra interest. I chose the small paw print, bone and heart. So cute! I then took the 6x6 paper pad and trimmed out 1x3 inch strips of several different patterns. I wanted to sort of mimic our pool tiles in my photo. After they were all trimmed out, I arranged them on my page from top to bottom, making sure to stagger them as I went.

I used a phrase from the Chit Chat pack as my title and popped it up on foam tape. I also used a few other pieces from the same pack to create the rest of my embellishment clusters. There's so many great pieces to choose from!

I matted my photo using another piece of 6x6 paper and layered a few Odds & Ends pieces behind it. After I adhered it down, I started embellishing the rest of my page using a few trees, birds and dog ephemera pieces from the Bits & Pieces pack.

To add a few more different textures, I adhered a few Puffy Stickers, Jewels and Shape Sprinkles around to each of my clusters. They added extra pops of color and interest to each one. How adorable is that little puffy fire hydrant?!

Here's one last shot of this super fun layout. I am in LOVE with this collection and can't wait to use it again!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope that I've inspired you in some way! See you in my next post friends!
