Free File Friday with Paper Issues: OC Boardwalk (Pink Paislee Summer Lights)


Paper Issues offers an amazing selection of FREE cut files and they're all perfect for the bi-monthly Free File Friday challenge!

This month's challenge is to use a Paper Issues cut file to document something you're thankful for. I'm thankful for our summer vacation, especially now that it's cold, icy and snowy here in upstate NY.  You can see how other members of the team interpreted this challenge on the Paper Issues blog today.

I used the Puffy Solid Alpha free cut file to create my title and paired it with Pink Paislee's beautiful Summer Lights line.



Add your finished project to the Free File Friday album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by December 31st for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Before I go...If you're itching for new products, be sure to check out the store. There are many new arrivals and brand new FREE cut files to coordinate. :) Use the code below to save 20% on your order.

Take 5 with Paper Issues: Mazel Tov (Photo Play Paper Happy Hanukkah)


Every month I love playing along with the Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. It's fun, easy and there are so many ways to interpret it. You can play along too for a chance to win a gift certificate to the
Paper Issues store.

My nephew's bar mitzvah is this weekend, so I made this card to pair with the gift we got him. I used Photo Play Paper's new Happy Hanukkah collection which you'll find in the Paper Issues store as well as the Star of David from the 8 Crazy Nights Paper POP set.

So how does the Take 5 challenge work? Pick 5 items from the chart below and create a paper project (card, layout, off the page, pocket page, etc.) You can add other items, but you must use at least 5 items from the list.


Link your finished project to the Take 5 Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by December 3rd.
 

In case you're wondering, I used six this month (and that's okay): #3 brown, #5 patterned paper, #7 stitching, #8 stripes, #9 animal and #12 3 stickers.

Sketchy Saturday with Paper Issues: OC Maryland (Fancy Pants Take Note)


I haven't used a sketch in quite a while, but I couldn't resist the great grid sketch Ann designed for this month's challenge at Paper Issues. It was the perfect way to document photos from our vacation to Ocean City, MD this summer.

I used Fancy Pants Take Note, a few bits from my stash, and some awesome flair from Feed Your Craft.

Here's a look at the sketch:



I hope all of you sketch lovers out there will play along! Add your finished project to the Sketchy Saturday album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by December 3rd for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.
