Pets are such a huge part of our lives and they leave their pawprints on our hearts forever. Kristen Swain is with us today with a sweet project paying tribute to a favorite fur baby that is sadly no longer with their family . . . a pet memorial frame.
Hello! Kristen here today with you with a loving memorial that I created for our beloved Casey. We adopted Casey a few years ago and even though she was only with us for a couple years, she became a huge part of our lives. Our family was devastated when she suddenly took ill and we had to ease her pain and put her to sleep. It’s been a little while since she’s passed, but we still miss her and I thought that a lovely memorial frame would be a nice addition to our bookshelves to remember her and still think about the wonderful times she brought to our family.
I used a plain wooden frame and added a basic patterned paper it. I sand the edges when I cover items to help keep the paper stuck down better, then I ink the edges so that it blends well with the paper.
Since my photo was smaller then the inside of the photo cutout, I added a stick frame cut from Camp Out digital cartridge. I added a simple dot paper behind the photo and popped up my frame and photo to stand out better.
To the bottom of the frame, I added a silhouette dog cut in black, along with the phrase I created in Cricut Craft Room. I also tied on some twine as additional decoration, but of a more simple nature.
I finished the frame with a couple brown buttons, and added Casey’s name to the top of the frame. I feel this is an elegant way to keep our memories of our sweet girl around us.
