Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues

Good morning, all!  It's Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues - the best day of the week!  I just wanted to hop on to share the layout we're lifting this week and to show you how it inspired me.

The layout we are lifting this week is this duper fun layout by Laurie.  Those strips across the bottom are too much fun and I love that she got multiple photos on her page:

I loved the design and decided to put my own spin on it by making scallops instead of paper strips.  I love me some scallops and it's been too long since I've had them be the focus of one of my projects, and I though this lift would be the perfect opportunity to use them.  I broke out my August kit and got to work.

Here's what my lift looks like...obviously, a little different, but hopefully you can still see how was inspired by Laurie's awesome layout.

I hope you're able to play along with us...and as always, don't forget that each design team member has a code you can use in the store to save 20% off your total purchase.  My code is KAT20.


Good morning everyone!  Just popping here today to share this month's newest Paper Issues "This or That" challenge with you.  I always love this challenge because I feel like I can ALWAYS make the selections fit my style.  Here is this month's board:

For my layout today, I decided to use a bunch of my Elle's Studio stash.  I'm definitely on an Elle's kick and I'm really glad there is so much of it in the store!  

Originally I thought I was going to use the 3 squares option since my photos were square-shaped, but I only had 2 pictures I wanted to use and I didn't really like the way my layout was working out, so I re-vamped and came up with this:

Ultimately, I ended up using 3 circles (not counting my modeling paste background work), twine, a rainbow, word strips, the word "love", a heart, and metal clips.  It was a lot of fun to put together.

I really hope you can play along with us this month...and don't forget that each design team member has a code you can use in the store to save 20% off your entire purchase.  Mine is KAT20.  :)
