Today & Forever

Hey everyone, today we have a new product spotlight at Paper Issues using the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection.  This collection is absolutely gorgeous! I love the softness of the colors even though some of the patterns are pretty bold!

Here is my LO!

I really had fun creating this LO.  I wanted the ampersand to be the main element so I created the background using a cut file from the Cut Shoppe.

You can see what the rest of the Paper Issues team created on the blog.

There's still lots of this collection in the Paper Issues store! You can get 20% off your order by using the code michelle!

So rad!

I have always been such a big fan of Simple Stories.  I love how all of their collection has so many bits and pieces of embellishments!  This so rad collection is perfect for big boy LO's!!

Everything on this LO is from the So Rad collection except for the wood veneer.

Here are a few close ups!

Beautiful Dreamer

Hey everyone, it's cut file Saturday at Paper Issues today!  Every month Paper Issues gives you a free cut file to play with.  How awesome is that??

Check out this month's file....isn't it amazing?

So I decided to play a bit with this file.  I only used the ends of the pattern and I created some flowers with it.   I don't usually play much with the files but this was fun!  I used the Bella Rouge collection from Pink Paislee.  I have almost used every single bit of this collection!!

And a few close ups

You can get this free cut file in the Paper Issues store and while you're there check out all the awesome new things that have been added to the store.  You can get 20% with the code michelle.

Happy me

Hey everyone, it's new issue day at Paper Issues.  This week it's all About The Face: macro photos, portraits, school pictures, team photos, selfies, funny faces, close ups, bad photos, vintage photos, IG photos, etc., use August printables.

I decided to create a LO about myself (something I don't do enough).  I used the I am collection from Simple Stories and kept the design pretty simple.

And a few close ups:
