Happy father's day!

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new card for Love My Tapes! Since it's father's day on Sunday, I decided to make a super cute card this week.  I don't think there is anything that can't be done with washi tape!  How cute is this little shirt and tie?

Always Cute

Hey everyone, today I have a new LO for Paper Issues using the Dear Lizzy Fine and Dandy collection. If you like collection with lots of coordinating elements this one is for you!!

I created a LO of my daughter on her 4th birthday.  The soft colors in this collection are perfect for little girl pages!

I have a thing about having to add at least a little bit of black to all my LO's.  On this one I added the title, a few embellies and black outlining on my papers!

There is still lots of this collection in the Paper Issues store!  Check it out and use code michelle for 20% off your order!

Hey everyone!  It's time for a new cut file Saturday at Paper Issues!  Even though it's a July 4th cut file it can still be used on many types of LO's!   I used the celebrate card and the stars to create a LO about my daughter's 11th Birthday!

Here's the file.  Isn't it fun?

And the LO I created with it!

Don't forget to head over to the Paper Issues blog for more inspiration!

You make me smile

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new card for Love My Tapes. I've wanted to try making washi feathers for a while and I'm so glad I did. They were easy to make and so very pretty!  All you need to do is stick some washi to a piece of twine and then using scissors shape it into a feather!

Meet me in the sunshine

Hey everyone, today Paper Issues is spotlighting the new Rise and Shine collection from Amy Tangerine.  I am such a big fan of her products and this one is no exception!

This collection has some of my favorite colors to work with!  Pink, teal and yellow...oh so pretty!  I scrapped a photo of my daughter with one of her cousins who she only sees a few times a year.  They are shy when they first see each other but it doesn't take long for them to start having fun!

I've really been into doodling lately, it just adds a bit of contrast and fun to the LO.

Make sure to check the Paper Issues blog to see what other team members created with this beautiful collection!

Live in the moment

Hey everyone, we have a new sketch at Paper Issues today and it's one of my all time favorite sketches!!  

The sketch is was inspired by a LO created by Sasha Farina, her LO is absolutely gorgeous!

Here is my take on the sketch.  I used the new Pink Paislee Atlas collection!  I used the Insta kit and took it apart to add the pieces to my LO!  I've had this photo of my daughter for a few years and I've scrapped it a few times but it never seemed right.  This collection is perfect for it!  There are so many bits and pieces to choose from it makes it really easy to get a LO done in no time at all!

A few close ups of this oh so lovely collection! 

You can see what the other Paper Issues girls created on the Paper Issues blog!

You can find this collection in the paper issues store!  Use code michelle to get 20% off your order!

You have my heart

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO for Love My Tapes.  To create the heart on my LO, I actually first cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo so that I would have a template to add my washi to.  I just tore off some washi strips and stuck it on to the heart.  Some strips were too long but it's so easy with washi, I just tore them a bit shorter and that was it!

For the love of Pink Paislee

Hey everyone, today I have not one but 2 LO's for you!  Over the years, I've had many favorite manufacturers.  Some I used to love but don't anymore, some I've grown to love, but the one that has always stayed as one of my favorites is Pink Paislee!!  These guys nail it all the time!

Today I want to showcase 2 LO's I've made with their 2 latest collection.  The first LO I made using the Citrus Bliss collection.  This is such a fun summer collection and it has all the elements trending right now.  Pineapples, lemons and flamingos oh my!

I had the perfect photos for this collection.  They were a bit over exposed but I just had to use them! I love the colors in this collection!  I mean seriously, pink, teal, yellow and green is the perfect color combo!

My next LO was made with the new Pink Paislee Atlas collection.  Of all the new releases this year, this was the one I was most excited about.  The muted colors in this collection are so me!  This will be one of those collection I use until there is nothing left!

Even though it's a travel themed collection it can still be used for anything.  Here I scrapped a photo of my son on the beach when we went camping.  It's so hard to get good photos of this new teenager!

Here are of few close ups of the Atlas:

Both of these collections are available in the Paper Issues store and you can get 20% off with the code michelle!

Oh, and I might have another Atlas LO going up on my blog on Saturday too!
