* Vera Lane Studio: Catness


I hope you are keeping well!

It's my DT day at Vera Lane Studio and today we have a new digi set release. It is Catness, an adorable set of 5 kitties and a set of sentiments.

I decided to make a tag accordion booklet and here it is:

I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them. The tag backgrounds and the covers are heat embossed and coloured with Distress Oxides in Fossilised Amber, Carved Pumpkin and Picked Raspberry. I added some stamping and paint splatters and grounded the cats with torn washi tape. Each tag was matted onto black card and placed onto the kraft card accordion. I made the cover from thick black card and covered the outside and inside covers with heat embossed, Distress Oxide coloured card. The fastener is coloured cord, held at the spine by a knot, which is pulled around the booklet and tied in a loose, double knot.
Below are some close ups of each page.

This cutie is my favourite of all the cats - Pure Bread :)

Here is my ginger tabby, House cat:

And black cat, Catatonic:

Another sweetie is Catnip:

And Catnap is wearing his bedhead, confused look:

Such a fabulous, fun collection!

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
