Live, Love, Meow Tag by Katelyn G

Hey Wild Whisper Fans! Katelyn here and I’m back sharing with you my last project for the month which uses the Fur Babies Collections. For my project today, I've used a variety of the papers from the collection as well as some sequins to create my Live, Love Meow Tag. Make sure to grab a glass of your favourite beverage as I will walk you through how to recreate my Live, Love, Meow Tag at home.

To start, take out the Etcetera Small Tag and reinforcement circle from the package. Trace the tag around the grey word paper. Ink the edges of the patterned paper tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Cut the tag out. Trace the reinforcement circle onto the grey/magenta striped paper. Cut the reinforcement circle out. Also make sure to cut the center of the reinforcement circle out. With the striped paper still out, flip it over and cut a piece that measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". Ink the edges of the paper reinforcement circle and the 4 1/4" patterned paper piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Ink the edges of the Etcetera Small tag and the reinforcement circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

From the lime green paw print patterned paper, cut a piece that measures 5 1/4" x 8 1/2". Ink the edges of the patterned paper piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Take the yarn patterned paper out. Cut a piece that measures 5" x 8 1/4". Ink the edges of the patterned paper piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

From the cat patterned paper, cut a piece that measures 4 3/4" x 8". Ink the edges of the patterned paper piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Cut the cat border strip, the paw print border strip and the fur babies border strip. Cut the cat border strip to 5 1/2" long. Cut the paw print border strip to 5 1/4" long. From the fur babies border strip, just cut one of the "fur babies" words off the strip. Ink the edges of the border strips and the fur babies word using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

From the cat side of the cut apart paper, cut the following pieces out: both yarn balls, the word small square, the paw print small square, one cat card, love is a card, grey paw print card, my children card, live/love small square and fussy cut the magenta cat out. Cut the large yarn ball in half. Ink the edges of the cards, squares and fussy cut images using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Now it's time for assembly. Adhere the grey word patterned paper tag to the chipboard tag. Adhere the stripe paper reinforcement circle to the chipboard reinforcement circle. Adhere the chipboard reinforcement circle overtop of the hole on the chipboard tag.
