Free File Friday with Paper Issues: Honeycrisp


Paper Issues offers an amazing selection of FREE cut files! If you don't have a Silhouette, there are directions on the blog to help you convert the files.

This month's challenge is to use a Paper Issues cut file on a fall or Halloween project. You can see more inspiration on the Paper Issues blog today.

I used the apple from the Take Note of Today cut file and enlarged it to create a wreath-style frame. I embellished the wreath with all sorts of fall embellishments from Carta Bella, Echo Park, Simple Stories and Feed Your Craft.



Add your finished project to the Free File Friday album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by November 5th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Product Spotlight with Paper Issues: Scary


Paper Issues is putting the spotlight on Halloween this month. I didn't have any Halloween collections on hand (gasp!) so I turned to my stash and pieces from various Paper Issues Swag Bags to create this card.


You can play along too, in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group. Post your project by November 5th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Add it Up with Paper Issues: Jingle All the Way (Simple Stories Very Merry)


Hi everyone! Are you ready for October's Add It Up challenge at Paper Issues?

There's a chart (see below) of items you can use on your project. Each item has its own point value. If you use multiples of an item, then you can add in even more points! For example, if you use two (2) photos, you'd get 10 points. If you use five (5) patterned papers, you'd get 25 points. Every month your completed project has to reach a certain point value. This month, you have to have 50 points or less. I'm sure you can guess there's no way I would have been able to do this on a layout, so I created a card. :)

Here's the chart and point values:



I hope you'll give it a try and play along! Link your finished project to the Add It Up album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by November 5th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

It's time for October's Pinspire Me challenge at Paper Issues. I used Carta Bella's new Hello Fall collection to create my card.

Free File Friday with Paper Issues: Autumn Blessings (Carta Bella Hello Fall)


Did you know that Paper Issues offers awesome FREE cut files? If you don't have a Silhouette, you'll find directions on the blog to help you convert the files.

This month's Free File Friday challenge is all about leaves. Use a leaf cut file on your project. Use one leaf, many leaves, florals with leaves or a leaf background.

I used the Autumn Blessings cut file for the sentiment and Seek the Mountain Peak for the leaves.
