National Cat Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Cat Day Blog Hop!

National Cat Day Blog Hope 10-29

If you came from Haidee’s blog, you are in right spot.   But if you happened to arrived at my blog first, you want to start the fun at Haidee’s blog!

I am excited to have you hop with us!  Each blogger participating in this hop is featuring a crafty project involving a “Cat”, so you’ll find lots of unique ideas having featuring felines. We hope you’ll enjoy each and every project along the way.

Be sure to leave a comment at each hop to show some blog lovin’ and to qualify to win a fabulous prize offered by our hostess, Haidee.  Check out this haul!  It’s too big to fit in the picture!  Remember to comment on each blog for a chance to win.


The project I originally intended to share had to be removed because it was selected to be published in Scrap N’ Art Magazine.  Exciting news I wanted to share with you, but I can’t show it anywhere else for two months.  So come back for a visit December, okay?

So onto my alternate project, a sliding pop-up card featuring a sly kitty which was made into a cut file by my talented sister-in-law. (Thank you, Rosie)


When you pull on that little tab, this is what happens:


You can see I personalized it, which I love to do on all my cards.  The patterned paper is One Birdie Lane from NitWit Collections.  Card stock and brads from Stampin’ Up.  The feathers?  You’ll have to ask the cat about that!

My next card is an Interlocking Gate-Fold Card.  If you click on the card, it will take you to the gallery to see why it’s called that.


The patterned paper I used was from the digital kit, Tail Wags from NitWit Collections.  I changed the colors, however, to match the card stock I used; Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White by Stampin’ Up.  I think the font I used, AR Carter, to computer generate the greeting and sentiment are just perfect for this card.

I know you’ve got another blog to get to, but I wanted to share a mini album I made in memory of my little calico cat, Pumpkin.  Here’s the cover page; click on it if you want to see the rest of the album (scroll to the lower portion of the page).

Pumpkin's Mini Album 1

I still have some work to do on this, but I’m pretty happy with it thus far.  It came together pretty easily with the Brag Book Album template by Misty Cato through Sweet Shoppe Designs and the Me-Wow Digital Collection by NitWit Collections.

Okay, I’ve held you up long enough.  Off to your next stop, the talented Connie.

Here is a list of the line up. Just in case if you get lost:

    Both your cards are adorable and I love that feather hanging out. Such a cute touch. I took a hop over and looked at your scrapbooks and all your fur babies you’ve had. Great job on preserving the memories.

  20. KT Fit Kitty says:

    I’m visiting from the Cat Lovers Hop but I am also planning to do your National Cat Day Hop as well – I saw it on Connie’s blog and I will head back to Haidee’s to start from the beginning! I am not only a cat lover – I am a cat fanatic – so I love your cards and I especially enjoyed seeing the album of your beloved Pumpkin! I keep saying I want to make an album of my cats and I’ve gathered some supplies but haven’t started yet – thank you for the inspiration! Your first card made me smile! I love how you personalized it! Happy Hopping!

  21. Lisa Peronto says:

    OMG – I just love that card I had to laugh when I saw those feathers. Both are adorable.

  22. Vinita Jain says:

    I came through Janis Cat lovers hop! And excited to see your stunning and clever creation with lots of inspirations! Love this fur baby stuck feathers in her mouth! And your gate fold one is amazing one too! And that pumpkin album is very cute to see! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations! Happy fun hopping!
    I am glad to be here and a new subscriber!

  23. Janis in ID says:

    Your cards are so awesome!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the feathers in the mouth. So funny!!!
    Pumpkin is just gorgeous. Of all the zillions of cats I’ve had, I’ve never had a true calico patterned cat. I’ve had torties, but no straight calicoes.

    Thanks so much for linking up to the Cat Lovers Hop!!!

    Awesome cards & mini album. Love that feather comin’ out of kitty’s mouth (even tho I am a birdie lover!) – too stinkin’ cute! Your cards are full of fun & laughs. Purr-fect combination.

  28. Shelly Schmidt says:

    Love your sliding pop up card- that is hysterical! You make the coolest cards with your electronic cutting machine- think you said Silhouette! One of my goals is to use it more. I would love to learn how to design a card and make it into a cut file : ) Wonderful stop for the hop!

  29. Such adorable cards!! I love the card with the feather in its mouth!!! What a great way to remember your deceased cat, Pumpkin!

  30. connie says:

  32. leslie says:

    I’m visiting from the Cat Lover’s Hop. I LOVE the look on the cat’s face on your first card! He just looks like trouble!

  33. Barbara G. says:

    Fun cards, took a peek at your scrapbook pages as it’s something I would like to do for my 18 yo black cat Spook.

I'd love to hear from you. I so appreciate your comments!
