Locker Exhibition (Echo Park Creative Agenda)


A few days before school started, Alexa had a chance to fill her locker with the loads of school supplies we had to buy (can you believe nine binders were on the list?) 

Of course no locker is complete unless it's decorated (at least according to Alexa) so she put together a collage on the locker door that included clothing tags, depleted gift cards, quotes, and photos of family, friends, and her cat, Butterscotch. She collected the items over the summer, knowing she was going to use them in her locker. She's a planner, that girl! :)

Turns out the start of school, and this photo op, couldn't have happened at a better time because it coincided with the release of Echo Park's new Creative Agenda collection. How perfect are all of the art-themed embellishments, references to the days of the week, and other day-to-day elements? I love it all!

If you're interested in this collection, it's available in the Paper Issues store. From what I've been hearing, it's not available in many stores. The code LISA20 will get you 20% off everything you buy when you check out. My little back-to-school gift to you. :)

I'll be back on Monday to share another Creative Agenda layout. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your week and have a great weekend!

Halloween Treat Bag (Whisker Graphics)


Yesterday I shared an altered Whisker Graphics bag designed to store travel photos. Today I'm sharing a 5" x 8" Halloween treat bag.

I topped a larger bag with a bitty bag, tucking an orange shipping tag inside. I also added embellishments from a variety of Paper Issues Swag Bags.

How cute will this be stuffed with tasty Halloween treats? I think they'd be a hit at class parties!

Paper Issues: Anything Goes with Whisker Graphics


A brand new linky party has started at Paper Issues. It's called Anything Goes, sponsored by the awesome folks at Whisker Graphics. They sent the design team a wonderful mix of their products to create with — Divine Twine, colorful bags (in two sizes), adorable stickers and shipping tags in an assortment of colors.

I used a 5" x 8" bag to create a storage spot for travel photos. The finished project could hold photos until you're ready to scrap them or it could be added, as is, to a layout or album.

So what topics does the Anything Goes theme cover? Your all-time favorite projects, Whisker Graphics projects and projects with bags, twine, tags or stickers. Please visit the Paper Issues blog for all suggested ideas.

If you link up AND link back, you could win a selection of Whisker Graphics products. Feel free to link up as many times as you'd like. Projects don't even have to be newly created. Oldies are goodies too! :)

Paper Issues: September Swag Bag


Hi everyone! Paper Issues has released the September Swag Bag. It looks like a fun one this month — kind of an office/organization/calendar theme going on. That's definitely right up my alley. I can think of so many uses for these elements, especially for those of you who are pocket page scrappers.

This embellishment kit is a steal at $9.99 but you can use my code LISA20 to get it for 20% off. Eight dollars for a cutie pie glassine bag full of fun embellishments and 3x4 cards is a great deal in my book.

Here's a list of what's included this month:


Studio Calico Mister Huey mask-random pick
My Mind's Eye Jubilee Labels
My Mind's Eye Sticky Notes-Days of the Week
Jillibean Soup Wooden Nickels
Pinkfresh Wood circle
Studio Calico Days of the Week clip

Project Life Grey Day stickers
Simple Stories Office Layers
Heidi Swapp Dates and Titles 3x4 card
Shimelle Overlay
Shimelle Ephemera
Jenni Bowlin Check Receipt
Crate Notes & Things Journal Card

Pebbles Love You More Zach
Fancy Pants White Corrugated
Studio Calico Brighton Pier Kissing Booth
Pebbles Home+Made Loveseat
Simple Stories Daily Grind Bingo Card

Card Share: Birthday Wishes


I created this card with the goodness contained in the August Swag Bag from Paper Issues, along with items from my stash. What's a Swag Bag you ask? It's a monthly kit filled with an amazing assortment of 3x4 cards and embellishments.

The 3x4 cards are perfect for pocket pages, layouts and (in this case) card making.

I'm going to start stalking my mailbox, because my September Swag Bag should be arriving any day now...There's nothing like peeling back the fresh washi tape seal on that glassine bag of goodies!

If you'd like to sign up for a Swag Bag subscription, be sure to visit the Paper Issues store. Use the code LISA20 for 20% off (the code applies to your entire order).

On Wednesday I'll give you a look at the September Swag Bag so stay tuned...

Card Share: Tunes


On Tuesday I shared a birthday invitation created from Echo Park's Game On Mini Theme. On Wednesday I showed you a card that focused on the gaming side of this collection. Today's card is for the music lover in your life.

I created this card around the 3x4 "Currently" journaling card by layering a variety of stickers and Silhouette cut files to create a music-themed scene.

There's one more part of this assignment I'd like to share. I was tasked with creating this set of cards to give as a gift, so I also came up with packaging which included a cello bag, a patterned paper band, some stickers and enamel stars.


I'll leave you with a look at all three cards together.


Have a great weekend! I'll be back on Monday with a birthday card I made for one of my sisters (shhhhh). :)
