October Sketch || Paper Issues

Good morning everyone!  I hope you're enjoying all the fun happening over in the PI Facebook group with the crop this weekend. While there are plenty of challenges there to inspire you, don't forget about all of the monthly challenges we have going on, too...including this month's sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

It's giving off lots of fun Halloween-y vibes, but I actually went in a different direction.  I used the 6x8 Cocoa Vanilla Studio Unforgettable paper pad, cut out a bunch of strips and created a heart as my grounding element.  Then I added in my photo, minimal ephemera pieces and a sticker for my title.  Here's my take:

I hope you can play along!  And don't forget that each design team member has a code you can use for 20% off a store purchase.  My code is KAT20.


Halloween Bella Style

Good morning everyone! I'm here today to share with you my most recent Halloween layout that's over at the Bella Blvd blog.  As some may know, I have a 2 year old daughter and at this age, she is changing SO MUCH and SO FAST. So, when I snapped a picture of her this year with some pumpkins, I noticed it was similar to one from last year. I decided to create a layout documenting the two.
I began by using the calendar invisible as my background and then mounted my pictures on multiple layers of paper from he super fun Sweet & Spooky collection. I embellished around the page with heart hugs, chipboard, and puffy stars and added my title to the bottom.
Here's the layout in its entirety:
Thanks so much for popping in today!

Secret Life of Pets || Paper Issues

Good morning, everyone!  I'm here today to share my take on this month's Secret Life of Pets challenge over at Paper Issues.  I always love this one, because my pup is pretty much my favorite creature to spend time with...lol.

For this layout, I decided to go with a large title and used the Believe Bold Alpha free cut file to achieve this look. I also used the super fun new line from Amy Tangerine, Slice of Life.  Since my doggy makes me so happy, he really does deserve all the bright, happy patterns on a layout all about him.

Here is the total layout:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I really hope you can play along with us this month...and don't forget that all the design team members have a discount code for the store that you can use.  Mine is KAT20 :)
