Today i did a scrapbook layout with Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs. This is a fabulous new collection available now for pre-order at the Cut at Home web site. I was so excited to receive this collection, I had the perfect picture in mind for my first creation!
Before I get started her is a list of the products that I used that are available for pre-order:

I also used a few items from my stash, Dog Washi Tape, twine, and an Epiphany Crafts Shape Maker to make the small acrylic rounds from the paper.
The first thing I always do is play around with all the elements that I am thinking about using, I never glue or tape anything down until I am sure that I am happy with the basic layout of all the elements that I want to use.
You can also view the video here at our youtube channel if you wish.
I used the black checkered paper from the 12″ x 12″ paper for the background and the black and white polka dot paper for the frame of the picture. I wanted to add other elements around the picture, which is a 5″ x 7″, so I cut the frame larger, 8″ x 7″, I also used a border from the back of the polka dot paper for the layout. The paper in this collection is very versatile like that and includes lots of borders and tags that you can cut. I decided to add a couple of pieces of the white and black polka dot paper from the 6″ x 6″ pad for some added interest. I also off set a piece of the white and black polka dot paper behind one of the tags that says All you Need is Love and a Dog.
Once I was happy with the layout I used a tape roller and adhered all my elements, I also added two strips of Washi tape, I had some washi tape that I have been wanting to use and this layout was perfect for it.
I also used a shape maker from Epiphany Crafts to add a couple of acrylic shapes along with adding some of the chipboard accents, including some buttons that I added twine to before I adhered them.
Here is a look at the finished layout:
This was such a fun layout and I love this collection! I hope that you have enjoyed my post today, until next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin!
