Stay Golden || Paper Issues

Good morning everyone!  I just wanted to share my layout for the Stay Golden challenge over at Paper Issues.  This challenge asks you to use gold on your layout.

My daughter and I were recently out and about and took a selfie by a fountain where she was playing.  I decided to play up the yellow, black and white clothing that we were wearing.  I dug into my paper stash and pulled out a bunch of papers that matched that color scheme.  Then I created a fun starburst with them.  I love that the starburst design is s popular right now.  It's always such a fun look. 

After I had my starburst created, I added in a few thing strips of gold glitter cardstock to really make the starburst pop.  Then I added in some acetate stitches from Pretty Little Studio, some random yellow embellishments from Elle's Studio and some Bell Pepper Trinkets from Bella Blvd (I LOVE the trinkets!!).

Here's my final project:

I hope you're inspired to play along with us.  And don't forget - each design team member has a code you can use to save 20% off your entire store purchase.  My code is KAT20 :)


Scraplift Sunday || Paper Issues

Good morning everyone!  It's Sunday, which means there's a new Scraplift happening over at Paper Issues today...and we are lifting a really fun layout from Samara!  Check it out:

I love the original inspiration so much that the only thing I really did to change it up was rotate it.  I used some of the fun new Color Story collection from Vicki Boutin, which I thought was perfect for highlighting these silly photos of my girl.  Here's what I created:

I mean, looking at these photos, I am in trouble, right?!  LOL.

I really hope you're able to play along with us this month...and don't forget - every design team member has a code that you can use to save 20% in the store.  My code is KAT20.
