Memory Challenge || Paper Issues

Good morning friends!  I just wanted to top by here to share my take on this month's Memory challenge over at Paper Issues.  

I decided to make a grid design for my layout, but I wanted to put my grid on a diagonal...kind of like if all the memory cards were laid out :)

I scrapped photos from our Christmas 2020 photo shoot and I used the fun paper pad from My Favorite Things as the base of my layout.  I also used come faux stitched and die cut numbers from Pretty Little Studio and alphas from Doodlebug.

Here's what I came up with:

Simple and easy, but a fun way to get a lot of photos down.

I hope you play along with us this month!  And don't forget, every design team member has a discount code you can use in the store.  Mine is KAT20!


Scraplift Sunday || Paper Issues

Good morning, friends!  I am so excited to share this first Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday pick of the new year!

Today's pick is a ridiculously fun layout by Lindsey:

I think the design is seriously so much fun and it allows people to put their own spin on it, while still staying true to the original.

For example, instead of using a cut file as the anchor to my photos, I decided to use some my stamps from Elle's Studio to create a fun grounding element.  I also used an assortment of distressed oxides as my tamping ink to bring in a lot of fun color.  Once I had my background created, I really didn't have to do much.  I sprinkled around a few Elle's embellishments and some Dina Wakley gloss spray and I was done.

Here's my layout:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you're able to join us for these fun new challenges in this new year!  Also, don't forget that each design team member has a code that you can use in the store to save 20% off your entire order.  My code is KAT20.  :)
