Top Note Die Quilt

Top Note Die Quilt How-to: 1) Cut a piece of cardstock to 3 3/4" x 5". 2) Punch out 12 squares of coordinating patterned paper using a 1 1/4" square punch (I inked edges of each one using Chestnut Roan chalk ink). 3) Adhere all 12 squares to 3 3/4" x 5" cardstock piece. 4) Run "quilted" piece through die-cutting machine using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up!. 5) Adhere quilted piece to card base, add eyelets and layered sentiment.

I had seen this neat idea on several blogs and finally tried it. I will show the "girly" version tomorrow. I will definitely be making more of these! It is an easy way to showcase a coordinating paper collection or use up your many many scraps! I got the 3x3 patterned paper pack sampler free from a Creative Memories consultant when I bought a small paper album at her crop. The 12x12 version has the patterns on a larger scale. You can see the boyish Discover collection HERE. It is part of their Power Palette series.
This is who came to visit us Saturday.....Riley's brother Tucker! This is him after running in the wet grass with Riley and Jack. He is just a peanut!
Oh, yes. They were all the yard, in the house, on the couch, on the bed, etc. Kevin was laying in the floor watching tv and Tucker didn't hesitate to crawl over him to get to the other dogs. They were non-stop! LOL!
After a lot of rambunctious playing, I decided to break out the rawhide treats. The smallest dog (Tucker) kept stealing from the other two. Silly boy!
I just love this one. They were all watching something out the front window. Probably the birds who have a nest in the front bush and kept flying in and out over and over. Tucker and Riley got on the ottoman for the best view. Jack stood on Riley's puppy steps to see out. He uses them more than Riley. Silly big boy!
See you tomorrow for the "girly" version of the Top Note Die quilt card.
