Take 5 with Paper Issues: Milk and Cookies (Fancy Pants Wish Season)

It's time for December's Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. Here's how it works...each month there's a list of items to use as inspiration. Pick 5 of the items from the list and create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off the page, pocket page, etc.) You can add other items and use your own ideas, but you must use at least 5 items from the list.

Here's the list for this month

Link your finished project to the Take 5 Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by December 31st to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

I love this challenge so much and look forward to it every month. In case you're wondering, I used
 #2 white, #4 snowflake, #6 wood grain, #10 ink, #13 stickers. :)

Sophomore 2016 (Simple Stories #Whatever)

A free cut file from the Paper Issues store was the starting point for this layout about Alexa's first day of school.

I used Simple Stories new #Whatever collection which is perfect for pages about teens, especially when they come with a bit of an attitude. LOL!

Card Share: December Favorites (Fancy Pants Wish Season)

Right after Thanksgiving, I start writing out Christmas cards. I aim for getting 3-5 done per day. When do you send out your holiday cards? 

I made this monochromatic card (OK, there's a pop of red, LOL) with Fancy Pants Wish Season and an awesome acrylic embellishment from Color Cast Designs. I added it to my Etsy shop. Hopefully someone will love it as much as I do. :)

Swag Bag Feature with Paper Issues: Typewriter Thank You Card

Hi everyone and welcome to another Swag Bag Feature from Paper Issues. Today I'm sharing a card I made with the November Swag Bag. I added in the enamel dots, machine stitching and heart sticker.

What is a Swag Bag you ask? It's a fun monthly kit that comes with a little of this and a little of that. It gives you a chance to try out collections you may be unsure of. It comes with a selection of embellishments too. It's a whole lot of fun for $9.99 (although you can get it for $7.99 if you use the code LISA20 when you place an order). I look forward to this shiny glassine bag full of happiness every month. :)

Check out what my fellow design team members made with the various Swag Bags. You'll find that post right here. :)
