Ollie

We got a new kitten in May and my kids named him Ollie. I don't know about you, but I am always taking tons of pictures of my cats, because they are always doing something cute! And with a new kitten in the house, I was overflowing with cute photos and wondering how to scrap them.

Along comes Project #2 for January: use Mosaic Moments page pattern #29 and the new MIST grid paper. This page pattern is "purrfect" for my Ollie pictures!

This page pattern features a 4x6 picture surrounded by 2 1/8 inch squares. I was able of crop most of my original 4x6 photos into 2 1/8th squares but a few had to be resized in Photoshop and a couple pictures lent themselves to stretching out over 2 grid spaces.

I took advantage of a free alphabet download from SnapnCrop.com and used the 1in squares to spell out Ollie's name. I used a 1 in. punch to punch them out and inked the edges before adhering them with foam squares to my page. I finished off my page with a journaling strip, some ribbon, buttons and paw print brads. I was thrilled to be able to scrap 13 pictures of Ollie on one page!

I love how you positioned the photos and title. I also have lots of photos of our cat and can now visualize how I want to do her in Mosaic. Thanks for sharing this with us.

I remember having a kitten in the house! So much fun. This is a great layout showing off your new addition. I love the paw print ribbon and brads! My pets are the subject of many of my photos and scrapbook pages too!

Pets make the best subjects for family photos! Everyone acts differently around their pets and you get great shots of both! Some real heartwarming moments with the new memeber of the family!

Ollie is a sweetie! I'm nuts about cats too. Love your page!

What a great way to get lots of pet pictures on one page. The overall effect is so pleasing to the eye--and so is Ollie!

Ollie is ADORABLE (that's saying a lot for me, because I'm 'dog people')! I love the string/ribbon effect in the title, too. Very nicely done!

Ollie is so adorable. I really like the Mist grid paper - it brings out a lot in the pics. What a great page to use a lot of pics and tell a story at the same time. Great job!

I agree with Julie - Ollie is adorable! The page turned out great. I love the strip with handwritten journaling and that paw print ribbon is a great touch. The bright pattern paper behind the center photo shows just enough - gives the page that extra boost of personality. :)

Too cute Sarah! This is why I love mosaic moments you can fit 13 pictures on one page. Ollie is adorable.
