Chevrons, Cricut, and a Cat

Chevrons are so fun to work with since they add a fun, whimsical look to a page.  The colors and the whimsical feel seemed to be a great fit for a page about The Cat and the Hat.

The paper on this page is from a couple of the Glitz collections:  Cashmere Dame, Chevron, Yours Truly Chevron, and Yours Truly, Stripe.  Rather than a straight across strip, I cut the chevrons out to give the strips a little added detail and add to the whimsy of the page.

The letters for The Cat and the Hat were made using the cartridge Alphalicious.  Each letter was cut in either short, tall ball or italic to add to the whimsy feeling of Dr. Seuss.  The Cat and Hat were done in shadow on white paper.  I cut the same size letters in normal font and placed foam dots under them.  The raised look makes the page more fun. 

Check out the paper at The Memory Nest.



Happy Scrapping!
