Hike || Paper Issues

Hi everyone!  Have you had so much fun with finding scrappy inspiration from all the Hallmark movies challenges over at Paper Issues this month?  I have!  Today, I am here to share my last layout of the year - and this one is for the One Royal Holiday prompt.  

While it was suggested that you could use this prompt to scrap snowy photos, I decided to just scrap a really cold photo (well, cold for me by Southern California standards lol).  I wanted to scrap this photo that I took of my daughter when we were visiting Big Bear Lake for Thanksgiving.  I had used the filter on Instagram where you can put the temp and location on the photo.  As I mentioned, we are from a warm climate and almost never experience freezing weather, so I did want to get this photo documented.

Because the picture features my daughter exploring the outdoors, I decided to use the new Doodlebug Great Outdoors collection.  I think the patterns are so cute and I really love how Doodlebug is coming out with the Petite Print packs now.  They are perfect!

Here is what I whipped up:

Paper Issues Holiday challenge

Good morning, friends!   I want to share my take on Paper Issues' "The Christmas Doctor" challenge (all the challenges this month are based off of holiday movies).  I chose to tackle this challenge from the perspective of traveling out of town for the holidays.  We recently went to Big Bear for Thanksgiving, so this challenge was the perfect excuse to get some of those photos immediately on a page!

I used some papers and stickers from the new Fernwood collection by Vicki Boutin, as well as some labels and stickers from Elle's Studio.  I wanted to create a design where I could incorporate a lot of photos without it feeling too "heavy" so I created a bunch of frames and squares from the papers. 

Here's what I whipped up:

I cannot wait to see how you interpret this challenge!  Make sure to play along with us this month!  And don't forget: every design team member has a code you can use to save 20% off your store purchase.  My code is KAT20.
