I am a PI girl!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone, I have been waiting for this day for months!  I can finally shout out my awesome news to the whole world!  I AM NOW A PI GIRL!!!  Ouff, it feels good to get that out!  hehehe

Here are some of my Paper Issues:
-My photos need to match my paper!  If I can't find paper that matches I won't scrap it!
-I can't stand to have dirty hands.  When I play with ink I often wear gloves.
-I scrap on my lunch hour...who needs food?
-I'm a slow scrapper, it can take me anywhere from 2-4 hours to complete a LO.
-White backgrounds and one photo LO's are my thing.  I'm not sure why but they just are!

Here's a recent LO I made with the Amy Tangerine Stitched collection.  I really love the softness of this collection.

I actually didn't use a white background on this LO, I liked the contrast of the soft colors with the dark background.

I like to doodle with a black marker around my pattern paper.

Cute little camera!

Make sure to check out the Paper Issues store often.  It is the best place to shop for the newest and most trendy scrapbooking supplies.  Use the code Michelle to get 20% off your entire order!!

Paper wreath tutorial

Hey everyone, I've had a lot of people ask me for a tutorial on the paper wreath I made so here's a quick one for you.  This wreath is really easy to make.

To start you will need a foam wreath, I used a 14" but you could make it smaller or bigger

You will also need some pins

Then you need some 12x12 pattern paper.  I used 8 papers for my 14" wreath.  You will need to cut the papers into 1/2" x 12" strips.  After they are cut, curl them the same way you would curl a ribbon using your scissors.  I found it worked well if I held the paper in the middle and curled one end at a time.  Then all you need to do is pin each piece of paper to the wreath.  Pin them from the middle of the strip so it curls on both ends.

Just to add a little more to it, I bought some cheap red ball ornaments and just added them randomly throughout.

Finally I made a bow using my Cameo.

Thanks for stopping by!
