Paper Issues: Tell Me Dies, Tell Me Sweet Little Dies with Jillibean Soup

School starts tomorrow so I thought it fitting to share a back-to-school layout for the new Tell Me Dies, Tell Me Sweet Little Dies linky party at Paper Issues, sponsored by Jillibean Soup. This page was made with Jillibean's Neopolitan Bean Bisque collection, back in 2012. I guess it was one of my favorite Jillibean collections because I used every last bit of it.

It's hard to believe this photo was taken back when Alexa was a nervous, sixth grade newbie. Now, as an 8th grader, she was chosen to be a WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) leader. She mentors and helps the incoming sixth graders with all of the issues they have in the first weeks of school, like finding their classrooms, getting their lockers open, etc.

Anyway, back to the linky party. We'd love to see your projects, new or old, that fall into the following categories:
  • Fussy cutting.
  • Using die cuts of all kinds, pre-made, manual, electronic, etc.
  • Use Jillibean Soup products.
You'll find more ideas on the Paper Issues blog so be sure to check it out for a chance to win a goodie bag of Jillibean Soup products.

See you tomorrow!
