Swag Bag Feature with Paper Issues: Santa Icon

Hi everyone and welcome to Paper Issues February Swag Bag Feature. Today I'm sharing a card I made with the sold out December Swag Bag. I couldn't resist polka dots and text paper, could I? LOL! I added the tag and acrylic shape from my stash.

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 and 4x6 papers so you can try out various collections along with a selection of 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). 

This is what the December Swag Bag included:

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

Add your animal-themed projects — a trip to the zoo or the aquarium, stuffed animals, your pet, etc. — to the Pawsitively Pets album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group by February 5th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

It's time for Paper Issues very first Pinspire Me challenge of 2017! I created my card with the December Swag Bag. It was perfect to go along with the mood board.

My card was inspired by all of the gold and the numbers.

Create something based on this piece and post it in the Pinspire Me album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by February 5th 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. :)

Take 5 with Paper Issues: Always Be Curious (Pink Paislee Fancy Free)

It's time for the year's first 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 January

Link your finished project to the Take 5 Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by February 5th 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
#1 pink, #2 grey, #3 black, #5 cardstock and #13 layers (and then some).
