Cat Lovers Hop 2 - Planner Clips

Hi, everyone!  This is the second post of my blog blast of cat-themed projects for the Cat Lovers Hop!  A special thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for hosting this wonderful event to celebrate our love of kitties!  The hop runs until tomorrow so there is still time for you to join in the fun!  I'm excited to be joining this hop for the fourth year!  For an update on my husband's health, please see my first post here.


Last spring I was involved in a cat-themed swap, and I created some cat planner clips for my swap partner. She has a black kitty so I chose images with a black kitty (these are from Calico Collage and Images4You, both on Etsy).


I used a 1" circle punch to cut the image, placed an epoxy circle sticker over it, and then adhered them to the gold paper clips. I backed them with another 1" circle of patterned paper.

These clips are attached to an ATC (artist trading card), measuring 3.5” x 2.5”, the perfect size for tucking into a pocket letter, which is what I did with these.  The stamped sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers - Doodled Flowers, and I used some patterned paper from my stash.

I would also like to support the following challenges:  Cardz TV 71 AG 2/3; Carlin's Kaartenparadijs Cat plus Black 1/3; Crafty Friends Circles 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper October UE; Hiding in my Craft Room Freestyle 2/3; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 2/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 2/3; The Corrosive October AG 2/3; Tuesday Throwdown Crazy Circles 1/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5 wk1
