November Take 5 || Paper Issues

Good morning everyone!  I'm here today to share my layout for this month's Take 5 challenge for Paper Issues.  Here's the list:

I think this is my favorite monthly challenge because it really allows you to do almost anything you want.  Most of the layouts I make usually meet the challenge board for the month and that's always a nice surprise.

For this one, I used up some of the My Mind's Eye Happy Days collection.  There's none of it left in the store, but there are some other fun My Mind's Eye products there.

And here's what I ended up creating:

I used a pre-made title, labels, a 3x4 card, arrows, ephemera, green and layers!

I hope you can play along with us...and don't forget you can save 20% off any PI store purchase if you use a DT member code.  My code is KAT20.


My Heart || Bella Blvd

Good morning everyone!  I'm here to share my layout for Thanksgiving week over at Bella Blvd.  I decided to make a layout that focuses on what I'm grateful for...and one of the things I'm most grateful for is my daughter - she's my heart!
The Home Sweet Home collection was absolutely perfect for this layout, including the coordinating "My Heart" acrylic title.
I love all the fun patterns in the collection, so I used as many of them as possible.  I cut up a bunch of triangles and arranged them into a vertical element that ran the height of my page.  I then sprinkled around some word salad stickers, enamel hearts, ephemera and some mist.  The layout actually came together really quickly once I had all my triangles cut out!  Here's the whole thing:
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week!
Patterned Papers: Home Sweet Home: All My Love, Always Welcome, Home Sweet Home, Welcome Home; Acrylic Title: My Heart; Ephemera Icons: Home Sweet Home; Doohickey Stickers: Home Sweet Home; Word Salad Stickers; Illustrated Faith Enamel Hearts: Bless Her Heart Mix



Getting Messy with Bella

Good morning everyone! I'm here on this beautiful Sunday morning to kick off Bella Blvd's week of getting messy! I'm so in love with this prompt. I'm not really a messy scrapper, but I always have fun when I branch out and get a bit messy.
For my layout today, I decided to paint a bunch of colors in rainbow-ish order to create my background. I then took a bunch of paper scraps, punched holes in them with my punch and glued them down on top of their coordinating colors. I then added a bunch of fun coordinating embellishments from the Squeeze the Day line.
This layout came together so quickly and I think it's kinda fun...it definitely highlights the rainbows in my life :). Here is the full layout:
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!
Patterned Paper: Freehand Graph and Dot: Bell Pepper, Pickle Juice, Punch, Oange, Gulf, Plum; Epoxy Stickers: Hearts (Squeeze the Day); Ephemera Words: Squeeze the Day; Bella Pops: Follow the Rainbow; IF enamel hearts: Olive You Mix
