Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner || Paper Issues Challenge

Good morning everyone!  I am stopping in today to share my take on the "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner" challenge for Paper Issues.  I have to say, I absolutely adore these kind of challenges that give very specific guidelines about where you can have stuff on your page.  They are definitely challenging, but I also end up creating layouts that I love.
For today's layout, I used the new Wild in Love collection from Photo Play Paper.  I think this collection is supposed to be for Valentine's Day.  But I think it's perfect for everyday.  The patterns are so fun and fresh!

Anywho, here's my challenge layout...I kept everything to the corners...and I really like how it turned out.

I hope you can play along with us this month!  And if you want to purchase any store items, make sure you use code KAT20 to save 20% off your store order.
Have a wonderful day!

Joy || Bella Blvd

Good morning everyone!  Popping in here this morning saying merry Christmas Eve to all those who celebrate!  

I was very excited to work with the new Merry Christmas line from Bella Blvd for this layout.  My daughter did an awful job cooperating for Christmas card photos last year, so I was so happy that she cooperated this year.  :) The pictures on this layout aren't even the final photos that made it on the card, but they are still cute so I had to scrap them!

I had a lot of fun ripping papers and mixing patterns.  This line is so much fun and I know I'll be breaking it out to scrap more of our Christmas memories from this year :)
Thanks for stopping in - have a safe and happy holiday season!

Take 5 Challenge || Paper Issues

Good morning everyone!  I'm here today to share my take on the Take 5 challenge over at Paper Issues!  

This is such a fun challenge for me.  The challenge is usually fairly easy, but also always makes me dig something out of my stash that hasn't been used in a while.  That was definitely the case today, as I dug out some of my favorite wood veneer alphas for this page.  A few years ago, I used these alphas on everything, but then one day I just stopped.  I'm glad they've made a comeback!  Now they'll pop up on at least a few more projects until I put them away.
Other items used from the list include: Gold, Mint, Stickers, Patterned Paper and a Label.  I used the Shine on collection from Amy Tangerine to create this layout, and there are still some embellishments from this fun collection left in the store.

I hope you can play along with us this month!  And remember to use code KAT20 on any store purchases you make to get 20% off your entire order!

Have a happy day!
