If you had a pet as a child, or have a pet in your life now, you know that they are such an important part of our lives. They make us laugh, make us crazy with their messes, and more often than not, bring a smile to our faces as they discover the world around them and love us unconditionally. The memories you have of your pets are definitely worth including in your family scrapbooks. Check out the pet pages below from two of our design team members, Amy Mitchell and Jana Eubank.
Hi Cricut Friends! It’ Amy Mitchell sharing a fun layout of our little dog Maya as she joined our family. We adopted her from a family that just couldn’t keep her anymore. Lucky for us!
I love this little face and I wanted to create a layout to show off a couple of my favorite pictures. I love banners and I totally love adding them to my layouts. This is a perfect way to welcome her home!
Using the Cricut Craft Room makes it easy to place names inside the banners. Help them “POP” by backing your cuts with coordinating colors and tie everything together.

Jana Eubank here to share a page with you about my favorite furry friend . . . our family pet, Kiki! This little dog has stolen our hearts. She is a friend to my kids when there is no one else around to play with, is always there to offer a snuggle, and is always happy to see us. She has blessed our lives and we are so grateful for her.
The pet food bowl and puppy are from the Nate’s ABC’s cartridge. I added definition to the dog with chalk and created his nose and eyes using pearl stickers. I added rhinestones to the blue holes on the dog bowl. The circle cut behind the dog was embossed using the Cuttlebug machine and the Traffic Jam embossing folder.
Have you scrapped your favorite furry friend lately?

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.
