Scrappy Cat and My Local Scrapbook Store!

I am so lucky to have a scrapbook store, Scrapendipity, very close to me, and even luckier to know the wonderful ladies who are part of that store! I go there weekly for a make 'n take card and a visit as well as go to usually a class a month. Over the summer my girls have enjoyed going there as well and are always spoiled by everyone there!

Back when we used to get together at the owner, Selena's, house, everyone used to get some snuggles in with her cats. Of course, once the store opened she couldn't bring her cats, but she did get a really cute stuffed cat that the girls, especially, love! Well, this cute, fuzzy kitty needed a name, and the girls thought Scrappy Cat would suit her (or him), so we promised to make Selena a cute sign. Amie helped design it and the girls both picked out the colours to match the signature store colours. 

We opened up Cricut Design Space and used the long frame from the Stamp Frame Cutting Files along with the Winter Cat - both from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons, along with one of the Signature Cricut Fonts and a Cricut Flower.

Even though this cute cat comes with a hat and scarf, you can choose to cut her without it! I love that you can do it separately. We used part of the scarf for the collar and duplicated the large flower, making it really tiny to fit on the collar. I used some Distress Ink around the edges before layering her together.

Here are the PPPR cut files we used:

Amie saw this Hello Kitty ribbon and thought it would make the perfect collar for Scrappy Cat. She added a pink flower with some Stickles in the center. 'Cause a cat's gotta have some bling!
