Card Share: Winter Snow

I was inspired to make this card based on the latest Pinspire Me Monday inspiration piece at Paper Issues:

In this case, I was drawn to the snowflakes. Create something based on this piece and post it to the Pinspire Monday thread in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by February 8th for a chance to win one of two prizes. You can even share on Instagram using the hashtag #paperissuespinspireme.

If you haven't joined the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group yet, click on the link above, then click "add". You'll not only find a fun group of women, all with paper issues just like us, but you'll get advance notice of sales, product arrivals and so much more! There's always something happening. It's all fun and games when it comes to crafting!

Card Share: Status Update

I have a fun, bright, happy card to share with you today. I mean, how cute is that Doodlebug Doodlepop owl flying by to say hello to a special someone?

I created this card with 3x4 papers from various Paper Issues Swag Bags, adding in little bits from my stash and a piece of mini flair from my friend Elise's (lilgik) Etsy shop, Feed Your Craft. She has some great stuff. I highly recommend that you stop by and take a look around when you have a minute. She is wonderful to work with and is happy to take custom orders.

Card Share: You Make Me Happy

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

This card makes me happy. I love the fresh, spring colors, the bit of sparkle from the sequins, the texture from the wood veneer flowers and the pop of black from the sentiment sticker.

Most of the elements on here came from various Paper Issues Swag Bags. These kits are great for card making and all sorts of other projects, like pocket scrapping and layouts.

I so look forward to its arrival each month! I pull the pretty glassine bag out of the package, gently peel back the washi tape seal and sift through the little bits and pieces over and over. If you love embellishments and trying new products as much as I do, think about trying the kit. You can sign up for a one-time delivery, a monthly subscription or even the new 6-month subscription (it's a great gift idea, by the way). Use the code LISA20 and you'll get 20% off (applies to anything you order, any time).

A Summer Snooze (Echo Park Through the Year)

There's nothing like a summer snooze, especially when you're a cat. I don't know what I would enjoy more right now — summer or a good, refreshing nap. If I chose the latter though, I wouldn't be able to tell you about my layout. LOL!

I put this together with Echo Park's Through the Year collection with a focus on the element stickers. I had fun using the round days of the week stickers around the page, adding foam adhesive to some of them to add dimension.

The title was cut on my Silhouette using the fonts Arial Black ("a summer") and Grand Hotel ("snooze"). I like the look of the two fonts together. They both have a roundness to them yet one is clean and sans serif and the other is cursive. Arial Black is a Mac and Windows system font. You'll find Grand Hotel right here.

Now if you'll excuse me, I think it's time for that nap I mentioned earlier. :)

You Are Some Kind of Wonderful (Webster's Pages Hall Pass)

I've found a new favorite collection — Webster's Pages Hall Pass. I picked it up from the Paper Issues store and couldn't wait to get to work. In fact, after I made this layout, I made a card and another layout (both to be shared soon).

Although Hall Pass is technically a school-themed collection, as you can see it doesn't have to be used only with school-related photos. In fact, this picture is from Mother's Day. It's such a pretty collection full of florals, plaid, bokeh and distressed woods.

I highly recommend you ask your teacher for a Hall Pass so you can check it out. LOL! If you shop through the Paper Issues store, you can use the code LISA20 to get 20% off of your entire order, plus all U.S. orders $60+ ship for free.

A new linky party started at Paper Issues today called Say it Ain't Snow Cold Outside. If you link your projects and link back to Paper Issues you have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store. There are a bunch of different ways to interpret this theme, so be sure to check the blog post for ideas.

I'm off to link up a couple of projects. Even though I'm not eligible for the prize, it's still fun to play along. :)

Card Share: Life is Better...

Hi everyone! Today I have another card to share with you, created with 3x4 cards and other elements from the Paper Issues December Swag Bag. I loved the Jillibean Soup quote card so much, I ordered two packs (different themes). One thing I love about Swag Bags is you can try a little bit of this and a little bit of that. If you end up loving something, you can order more (and you can order it for 20% off if you use the code LISA20).

Thank you for visiting this week. I'll be back next week with new projects to share. Enjoy the rest of your week!
