A is for Adorable

Welcome to our very first Everything ABC's Blog Hop! This will be the first of many throughout the year so make sure to check out what we have new for you about every two weeks. Happy New Year and Happy Hopping!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter A. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their A element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Lucy then you're on the right track!

I used the Clemetine paper for this layout!  The base is Saddle paper. I spotted the idea for this layout on Pinterest here.

My daughter loves our cat and really any cat that will snuggle with her!  She asked me to take the main picture and the smaller one is a friend's kitten!  

I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the hearts ranging between 2 and 3.5 inches.  The heart 
picture is also cut in the Art Philosophy cartridge.  There might be an easier way to cut it but I cut a sample heart and then positioned the photo under the paper to figure out where I wanted it to cut.  Then I removed the paper and repeat the last cut to cut the photo!  It was perfectly positioned!

I love the simplicity of this page!
