Swag Bag Feature with Paper Issues: Celebrate Today


It's time for Paper Issues June Swag Bag Feature! I keep all of my Swag Bag items in a cute little pouch, so I went through to see what I could find. I don't remember which month these items are from. Sorry about that!

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, has just been released. Be sure to check the store and grab one for yourself. They sell like hot cakes. Plus, you can use the code LISA20 and save 20% on your entire order.


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

Add it Up with Paper Issues: Pretty Girl (Crate Paper Little You Girl)


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

The chart belows shows the 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 used 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 40-60 points. I reached 50.

Here's the chart and point values:



Now it's your turn to give it a try! Link your finished project to the Add It Up album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by July 2nd to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Try it Tuesday with Paper Issues: Life is a Party (Fancy Pants Joy Parade)


I had fun playing along with Amanda's Try it Tuesday challenge at Paper Issues.

This month's task is to use fabrics and/or textiles on your project. Ideas include using lace, ribbon, fabric squares, pom poms, bows, thread, hand/machine stitching and more!

I tied ribbon into a bow and added it to my card. It was the perfect finishing touch. :)

You can play along too! Add your project to the Try it Tuesday album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group by July 2nd for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Product Spotlight with Paper Issues: Under the Sea (Bella Blvd. Secrets of the Sea Boy)


Starting this month, Paper Issues is changing up how the Product Spotlight challenge works. Instead of featuring a particular collection, we'll showcase projects that fit a certain theme. This month the theme is Get Outdoors. I chose to use Bella Blvd.'s Secrets of the Sea collection. Nothing like a visit to the ocean, right?

Pawsitively Pets with Paper Issues: Pawsome (Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings)


This month's Pawsitively Pets challenge is "3 Things I Love About You". You can journal about it, put it in your title, etc. Incorporate it into your page however you'd like, but tell us three things you love about your pet, the zoo, or even animals in general.

I used Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings for my layout along with other items from my stash. How cute is Butterscotch, lifting his paw? He does that when he wants attention or to be petted. Cute, right?

So now it's your turn! Add your project to the Pawsitively Pets album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group by June 4th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Add It Up with Paper Issues: You're Some Kind of Wonderful (Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart)


Hi everyone! There's a brand new (super fun) challenge at Paper Issues called Add It Up. It's easy math, so don't worry. LOL!


Michelle has created 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 used five (5) patterned papers, you'd get 25 points. Every month your completed project has to reach a certain point value. This month, Michelle wants us to get to at least 100 points. Given my style, I had no problem reaching 155 with patterned papers, journaling, a photo, flair, chipboard, a bow, a tag, multiple other embellishments, stickers and enamel dots.

Here's the chart and point values:



Now it's your turn to give it a try! Link your finished project to the Add It Up album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by June 4th to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

This month I'm playing along with the Sketchy Saturday challenge at Paper Issues. Each month Amy designs a fabulous sketch for us to work with.
