All the Cards...

I do not fancy myself a card maker, in fact, I try to avoid making cards altogether! However, the Paper Issues monthly challenges have really been inspiring me to get my card game on lately! 

I've compiled a collection of the cards I've done over the last few months to share! I hope you might be inspired to make somebody you love a handmade card even if you generally aren't a card maker.

The first card I'm sharing is made with the Crate Paper After Dark collection using Snarky Stamps sold exclusively at Paper Issues for an October Challenge.


Sticking with the Snarky Stamp theme, I made this Birthday card for Anson using the Freaking Sentiments for the September challenge.

 For this month's card sketch I used the Pumpkin Spice line from Simple Stories for this cute fall themed card!

This next card is based on a ScrapLift Sunday card made by Lisa Swift using Bella Blvd's Max collection.

Another birthday card featuring Bella Blvd's Max collection and a handmade PaperPOP from Parker on the Porch sold exclusively at Paper Issues.

Finally, this card was inspired by a gift set designed by Corri Garza for ScrapLift Sunday over in the Paper Issues {friends & fans] Facebook group using the Pebbles Harvest collection. 

Thank you for stopping by to take a look today!

Hello, I am playing along with the product spotlight up on the Paper Issue Blog today featuring the After Dark line by Crate Paper! This line is so much fun!

I put together this creepy layout of my kid practicing her Halloween makeup!

I used the the ephemera pack for all of the embellishments clustered together on the right.

Then I added in some of the puffy stickers (the black and white circles with the spiders and crow).

 I also used the acrylic bats in both black and smoke from the Be Scary set from Color Cast Designs. This set is currently sold out but will be restocked by November 7th!

Be sure to link up your layouts, cards and projects using Crate Paper After Dark to the October Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans] Facebook group for a chance to win one of two $10 gift cards being given away this month!

Doggone Tired...

I'm sharing another ScrapLift Sunday layout today; this time inspired by Kelly Feldman for Paper Issues! Kelly's original layout using Bella Blvd's Whatever is Lovely collection was so awesome!

I played along using the Kaisercraft Shine Bright line!

These baby photos of Jaxson sleeping next to Anson on the couch are so sweet. His little puppy ears certainly had a mind of their own back then! 

I love all of the patterns that were included in this line. The yellow and black were so perfect for boy pages as well (including boy dogs -- LOL)!

I hope that you are playing along with our ScrapLift Sundays each month for a chance to win one of two $10 Paper Issues gift cards! All you need to do is play along with any of the monthly challenges and add you project to the comments for a chance to win!

A week in the life...

Hello! Today I am sharing a layout using the Color Cast Designs releases from August -- both the Greige Days of the Week set and the Friyay! set in Pomegranate which also comes in Citronella! Finally, the "I like naps" wood veneer is from the Here and Now set designed by Kellie Winnell from Kellie Stamps.


I had been hoarding this photo of Olivia because it was so funny that she fell asleep like this! Doxies truly can sleep ANYWHERE and ANY WAY!

My dogs truly have a ruff life -- naps, treats, cozy beds with blankets -- not spoiled AT ALL!

Hello Autumn...

Hello! I'm sharing another fall layout using the Color Cast Designs September releases. On this layout I use both the Crisp Air and Harvest sets paired with the Harvest collection from Pebbles.

I also used the giant ampersand in the coordinating fall colors on this layout. These ampersands are absolute perfection!

Paired with the wood buttons and phrase stickers from Imaginicse -- all of these colors come together perfectly.

I layered together the "OCT," "harvest" and that tiny pumpkin all from Color Cast Designs on the bottom right of my layout to add balance.

The "hello" and "autumn" script phrases are also from the Harvest set.

Falling Leaves...

Hello! I am so in love with all of the fall scrapbook products out right now! Fall is my favorite time of year as well as my favorite product to work with!

I put this layout together for ScrapLift Sunday over at the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group based on inspiration from the very talented Mary-Ann Maldonado using the Crisp Air set from Color Cast Designs and that **adorable** little vinyl fox embellishment from Parker on the Porch exclusively sold at Paper Issues!


Right now I am totally into word phrase stickers/wood veneer. Just small strips with phrases on them made from either stickers, wood, or die cuts. I use them on almost every layout and so many lines have them right now! The "apple picking" and "sweater weather" phrases from Color Cast Designs were perfect for layering on the wood veneer leaves from Pebbles Harvest collection.

The acrylic titles/phrases from Color Cast Designs  never disappoint! That script is simply perfection!
