Today I’m sharing my By Your Side Kit Cards and some alternative cards that I made using the 2023-2025 In Colors. Those colors have one more year…but the Designer Series Paper and embellishments are retiring (the Twine is carrying over to the new catalog…yay!!).

In the By Your Side Kit you get 16 images, 8 dogs and 8 cats and all the supplies to complete 8 cards. That gives you 8 extra animals to make 8 more cards using other product (like my in color examples). For $22 I think that’s a great deal!!

Card one is using my favorite image, it reminds me of how Bella would sometimes sit with her little booty in the air. I so wish we had stamps like these images!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The card base is Pebbled Path and all the measurements are in my FREE PDF (below the video).

The next card was a Sketch I saw in our new catalog on page 22 and I modified it slightly. The card base is Moody Mauve and the designer series paper strips measure 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″.

For the next card I used Copper Clay and we have two versions, a cat and a dog.

Now for the other changes… in the cards above I used the greetings that were included with the By Your Side Kit. For the images below I used two different stamp sets, Simply Said Stamp Set and Hooray for Surprises Stamp Set.
