Scrap Soup with Paper Issues: Road Ready (Fancy Pants Dream Big)


It's time for September's Scrap Soup challenge at Paper Issues. This is such a fun challenge! You can play along too for a chance to win a gift certificate to the
Paper Issues store.

How does this challenge work? Each month there's a list of items to use as the base of your soup (project). You're welcome to add in anything else you'd like (including more of what's listed), but you have to have at least the minimum ingredients in the recipe.


Link your finished project to the Scrap Soup Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by October 1st for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Pinspire Me with Paper Issues: On My Desk (Echo Park Teacher's Pet)



It's time for September's Pinspire Me challenge at Paper Issues. I really stash busted in order to create this teacher thank you card, using scraps from Echo Park's Teacher's Pet collection and other little bits.

Here's a look at this month's back to school themed mood board. I was inspired by the apple, the quote and all of the great colors.


Create something based on this piece and post it in the Pinspire Me album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by October 1st for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store. If you share your project on Instagram, be sure to use #paperissuespinspireme so we can leave you some love. :)

Add it Up with Paper Issues: I Scream 4 Ice Cream (Pink Paislee Summer Lights)


Hi everyone! It's time for the September Add It Up challenge at Paper Issues. The math is super easy, so don't worry.

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 get at least 175 points. I ended up at 183.

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 October 1st to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Take 5 with Paper Issues: Home Sweet Home (Fancy Pants Family & Co.)


Every month I really look forward to 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.

Here's how it works. Pick 5 items from the list 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 October 1st.
 

In case you're wondering, I used more than five this month (and that's okay): #1 green, #2 gold, #3 brown, #5 paper stripes, #7 patterned paper and #12 bow.

Swag Bag Feature with Paper Issues: Boys Will Be Boys (Carta Bella Toy Box)


It's time for Paper Issues August Swag Bag Feature! This month I used the June Swag Bag (see below), focusing on product from Carta Bella Toy Box.

What is a Swag Bag? It's a fun monthly kit that comes with a little of this and a little of that (each one is slightly different). It's filled with 3x4 papers so you can try out various collections along with a selection of awesome embellishments. It's a whole lot of fun for $9.99 (although you can get it for 20% off when you use the code LISA20) plus there's an option to subscribe for six months.

The June Swag Bag, That Kid is a Star, is shown below:


Check out what my fellow design team members made for this feature, right here. :)
