Cat Lovers Hop Day 5

Can relate?


2019 Cat Lovers Hop

DAY 5 GAME: Do you have a favourite "celebrity" cat?
Yes,  I love following
 Just two ordinary kitties, with wonderful inspiring human parents!!!


And... a couple of projects this time...
First up is another 'Life of Yassi' page for my Project Life album
For her very first night... she stuck to my pillow on the couch and claimed it as her own, she had eaten what was left in her bowl through the night and used her kitty litter like a champ! 
Now.... to get my feather pillow off her!
I took the cover off and laid it on her new bed hoping that would 'trick' her.....
And it did!
So after a couple more nights..... I had made her a kitty quilt and at first she wasn't sure and ended up in my arms!  But hey..... I didn't mind!!! 
She didn't stop purring and she was happy!
Next, this was a little fun!  I get the Flow Paper Craft Books - they are full of fun crafty paper projects and this cut out craft and art room took my fancy....
Weeeell, I'm a painter - and look at the kitty!!
Absolute copy of Yassi!
I haven't played with this sort of thing since my girls were young..
but this one is for me!! 
Its my studio, me and Yassi! (weeeeeeell, I like to think so anyhows :) )
Its paper cut outs (for adults...kinda like colouring for adults!)  with the illustration of what to do!
So off I set turning paper into 3D objects like the grey drawers and shelving.
And... the final result....
(very big grin from my inner child!)
Close up
The whole 'studio'
I'll definitely have to set this up somewhere special!
And remember.. if you have a kitty, or even just love doing cards and have some kitty stamps, come join in! Lots of fun things to do... and prizes!
See you over at

LOVE your layout and reading about Yassi and your pillow! lol Sorry the quilt didn't work out. Kitties just don't appreciate like they should. haha

Awww! Yassi is a dear and fell in love with his Mama immediately. Wants to be with whatever smells like you, eh? Adorable quilt and another fab page. Love that 3-D art studio, too. How cool and fun is that? Now I'm going to go look up Cole and Marmalade. xxD

Fikreta said...

thats gorgeous!

NanaConnie said...

Fabulous page, Mandy, and the 3D project is so perfect with a black and white Yassi next to you! :-D Love it all. So glad that Yassi did come around to loving her little quilt.

Arianna Barbara said...

I'm sppechless!!! Your projects are simply stunning!
You're so creative! Thanks for sharing!!!

Karenladd said...

Wow, I was impressed already with your Yassi layout, but that studio project has my mouth hanging open!! Okay, close your mouth now's unbecoming... I love how you personalized the studio with Yassi keeping you company while you create. LOVE this one!

Suzanne H said...

Oh my! How sweet is that and a copy of Yassi as well.

Janis said...

Maybe if YOU sleep with Yassi's cat quilt a night or two, she will accept it better. I think she just wants to feel near you by sleeping on something that is yours. She loves you so much...and I know the feeling is mutual. Lovely PL pages. We are all getting attached to Yassi, just like to Blackie!!

Your 3D studio is just amazing, Mandy!! I think all that cutting would drive me nuts, but I can see you love doing it and the results are fabulous. Love that Yassi is in there with you. She seems very well-behaved in the art least while we are all watching! Ha.

Thank you so much for playing along in the #2019CatLoversHop!!

Lots and lots to see here today, Mandy! I'm intrigued by your 3-D art studio, so cool, and it looks like it was so much fun to make! I see the Yassi look-alike, and right there helping you with your painting! Your PL is adorable, I find it touching and I love all the detail you include. I especially love that photo of Yassi asleep with you. I'm really enjoying getting to know Yassi!

Carole J said...

Bless Yassi wanting your pillow cover for herself! Another beautiful layout documenting Yassi's first days with you. Your 3D studio looks awesome! Bravo for all the fussy cutting and fiddling with tiny pieces. It was worth the effort! xx

Chark said...

Love your page and project, so great!

Susan Renshaw said...

First... I loved the Keep calm and love cats page. Then, the scene is brilliant! I like to do dolls houses and this seems similar!

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Another awesome creation, LOVE it!!!! It seems so fun making these 3D scene, I did it when I was young and seeing your pieces of Art I wish make again! :D This studio looks so full of adorable details!!
Loved reading of your Yassi again. She is a very lucky kitty... now!! :)
