Scraplift Sunday || Paper Issues

Good morning!  I'm here to say, "Happy Scraplift Sunday!!"  It's one of my favorite scrappy days of the week and it's all at Paper Issues.

This morning we are lifting this awesome layout by Kelly:
I love how she centered the photos in the large circle.  I knew immediately that I wanted to do the same things with a giant heart.  And instead of using letters to make my heart, I used paper strips from an Amy Tangerine line (the Stay Sweet collection's 6x8 paper pad is still available in the store here).

I also centered my photos in the middle of the heart.

Here's my final layout:

Thanks again to Kelly for the awesome inspiration!  I really hope you can play along with us in the Paper Issues Friends & Fans Facebook group!

And finally, don't forget that everyone on the design team has a code you can use to save money in the Paper Issue store - mine is KAT20!


Good morning everyone! I'm here today to share my newest layout that's totally Autumn-inspired and up at the Bella Blvd blog! Is it cooling down where you are yet? We're still looking at another month of warmer weather, but a girl can dream...

For this layout, I began by ripping strips of papers for the top and bottom of my layout. Then I glued down my photos and added a smattering of ephemera, puffy stars and fussy cut flowers from the gorgeous "Night Garden" paper from the Sweet & Spooky collection.
I love that even though the Sweet & Spooky collection was made for Halloween, there are still pieces in there that are perfect for Fall-themed layouts, as well...especially when paired with the new Freehand Graph & Dot papers!
Here is my full project:
Thanks so much for popping in today!
Patterned Papers: Freehand Graph & Dot: Gulf, Orange, Plum; Sweet & Spooky: Exclusive Collection Kit Bonus Pattern, Night Garden; Illustrated Faith Alphas: Typed Practice What You Peach; Florence Alphas: Plum; Sticky Mix: Sweet & Spooky; Ephemera: Sweet & Spooky; Puffy Stars Stickers: Orange Mix




Good morning everyone!  Happy Friday!  I'm on the Paper Issues blog today to share one of my recent spreads in my #52favorites album.  For those who don't know, my #52favorites album is all focused on my daughter, Piper (the perks of having an only child!).

The memory for this week was that she picked out her own outfit and it was so super cute that I had to document it.  I used the awesome September Kit.  It has so many great papers in it...I'm definitely in love.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And don't forget all the design team members have a code you can use to save 20% in the store - mine is KAT20!


Summer Birthdays || Bella Blvd

Good morning everyone! I'm here today to share with you my layout for our "Summer Memories" week over at Bella Blvd. My daughter and two of her cousins have summer birthdays, so we try to get together in the Summertime and celebrate with birthday parties. This Summer, my daughter had a rainbow themed party with the family and her aunt bought fun lollipops for the littles. Of course, we had to do a photo shoot...and then I had to scrap it!  :)
I thought these photos were perfect for the Squeeze the Day collection. In addition to it having rainbows featured in the collection, the colors are so happy and bright and complement the photos well.
I began by creating my background out of pieces of paper from the Bella Besties 6x6 paper pad.  Then I glue down my pictures and the Sweet Skies paper. I wanted to make my acrylic title pop, so I backed it with another paper from the paper pad. Here's the end result:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
6x6 Paper Pad: Bella Besties Freehand Graph and Dot; Patterned Paper: Bella Besties: Freehand Graph and Dot Punch, Squeeze the Day: Sweet Skies; Acrylic Words: Happy; Ephemera Words: Squeeze the Day; Ephemera Icons: Squeeze the Day; Doohickey Stickers: Squeeze the Day; Acrylic Shapes: Rainbows; Matte Enamels: Fruity Mix
