Scrappy Cat!

Hi there! Karla here today! Over the summer my girls have enjoyed coming in to the Scrapendipity store with me for make 'n takes and classes and are always spoiled by everyone there! We are so lucky to have this wonderful store and all the amazing people there.  There are so many crafters who just don't have this - it really makes me appreciate it.

Back when we used to get together at the owner, Selena's, house, everyone used to get some snuggles in with her cats. Of course, once the store opened she couldn't bring her cats, but she did get a really cute stuffed cat that the girls, especially, love! Well, this cute, fuzzy kitty needed a name, and the girls thought Scrappy Cat would suit her (or him), so we promised to make Selena a cute sign. Amie helped design it and the girls both picked out the colours to match the signature store colours. 

We used Cricut Design Space and several different Cricut and PPPR cut files for the frame, letters, cat and flowers. 

Even though this cute cat comes with a hat and scarf, you can choose to cut her without it! We used part of the scarf for the collar and duplicated the large flower, making it really tiny to fit on the collar. I used some Distress Ink around the edges before layering her together.

Amie saw this Hello Kitty ribbon and thought it would make the perfect collar for Scrappy Cat. She added a pink flower with some Stickles in the center - 'cause a cat's gotta have some bling!
