Product Spotlight with Paper Issues: Forever My Always


Paper Issues is getting stitch happy today. I machine stitch, with my trusty old Singer machine, on the majority of my projects and this card is no exception.


For those of you who have the new We R Memory Keepers sewing machine (so pretty), you'll find thread, twine and other accessories in the Paper Issues store.


Check out the Paper Issues blog today for more inspiration from the design team.

Remember, you can play along too, in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group. :) Post your project by September 3rd for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

It's time for August's Take 5 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

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 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.

In case you're wondering, I used more than five this month (and that's okay): #1 orange, #2 yellow, #3 turquoise, #4 die cut(s), #6 patterned paper, #12 sticker(s).

Try It Tuesday with Paper Issues: Almost 16 (Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings)


This month's Try it Tuesday challenge at Paper Issues is called Tape It Up.

This month's task is to use any type of tape (masking, washi, etc.) in a new and inventive way to create interest, texture, shape or form on your project.

I layered a trio of washi strips on a shipping tag and also covered wood veneer hearts with washi (trimming off the excess with an X-acto knife) and placed them around my page.

You can play along too! Add your project to the Try it Tuesday album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group by September 3rd for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.
