Cut it Up – The Perfect Pet

My family and I have had so many pets over the years from fish to birds to dogs.  I loved them all while we had them (except the frog) but now I love the freedom of having no household pet.

I do, however, totally enjoy “my” wild birds!  We have three feeders in the front of the house that attract so many cuties: sparrows, finches, titmice, bluejays, cardinals, woodpeckers, mockingbirds, even starlings and blackbirds.  I love them all (though not the starlings as much — they took over my daughter’s woodpecker family’s nest once.  I haven’t forgiven them.)

Since I needed a bookmark, that’s what I made, and some extras for my pen pals.  I wanted to use product from our sponsor, Newton’s Nook.  Included in their Forest Scene Builder Die Set, there are three wild birds.  I did a google image search for a bird feeder and found this one.  I brought it into Silhouette Design Studio and traced it, then cut it out and glued my little birds onto my bookmark template.  This is what I came up with.The first two I put together have no embossing, but they just looked too plain for me.  The embossing folder I chose for the rest is from Cuttlebug’s Plum Blossom Set.

I’ll keep the bookmark on the left for myself.  The bird feeder is at an odd angle and it’s one of the non-embossed ones.  It’ll still keep my page, though!  😉

Head on over to Cut it Up to see what the other design team members’ favorite pets are, then link up your own project.  The prize is a $20 store credit from Newton’s Nook!  Plenty of pet-related products there!!

    What a great idea! Love these little birds and the feeder is perfect! Wild birds are so much fun to watch; we have some Orchard Orioles this year and they are so pretty. Also finding the woodpecker who comes to the humming bird feeders interesting! 😉 Seems we have a bigger variety of birds this year than ever before!

    Hi Evelyn! You created a perfect bookmark! We too have many bird feeders and their backyard antics keep us entertained! I like the embossing folder you chose – it really complements the rest of the design!
