Scraplift Sunday || Paper Issues

Good morning, everyone!  It's Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues!  I love Scraplift Sunday prompts, because if you're in a creative funk, they're always the perfect jumping off point to get back into crafting.

Today we are lifting this fun layout by Sarah Kee:

I always adore Sarah's style.  I frequently scraplift her creations because her style is fun, creative, yet simple enough for me to be able to emulate and put my own spin on.

I loved the smattering of elements on her page and I kept to her design pretty closely, just swapping our hearts and rainbows for circles.  I used a ton of Elle's Studio on this one:

I love how quickly this one came together!  I hope you can play along with us...and don't forget: each team member has a discount code you can use to save 20% off your store purchase.  My code, if you're so inclined, is KAT20 :)


Pitch Perfect Challenge || Paper Issues

Good morning, everyone!  Have you started on your March challenge entries at Paper Issues yet?  They are all so much fun...and I'm excited to share my take on the Pitch Perfect challenge today.

For the Pitch Perfect challenge, you should create a layout inspired by this album cover:

This album cover is incredibly inspiring, isn't it?  I was especially inspired by the vertical stripes of color, so I used my acrylic paints to create 4 vertical stripes to ground my design.  I then used a bunch of different font white alphas.  Originally, I had planned on painting the alphas to be the same color as the stripes to create a subtle effect, but once I saw them down, I decided to leave them alone.

I then sprinkled around a lot of die cuts and fussy cut flowers and hearts from Kaisercraft's Blessed collection to finish off the look.

Here's my final layout:

I hope you are inspired to 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 purchase.  My code is KAT20 :)
