Sketchy Saturday with Paper Issues: We Do Give a Crêpe (Carta Bella Welcome Home)


There's nothing sketchy about the January sketch challenge at Paper Issues. I used it to create a page about a restaurant we loved when we were on vacation this summer.

I interpreted parts of the sketch loosely to fit my style, using many of the elements shown on the sketch. I put my page together using Carta Bella's Welcome Home collection, odds and ends from my stash, and a piece of flair from Feed Your Craft.

Here's a look at the sketch:



I hope all of you sketch lovers out there will play along! Add your finished project to the Sketchy Saturday album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by February 4th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Add it Up with Paper Issues: Be-Paws I Love You (Simple Stories Life is Purrfect)


Hi everyone! Are you ready for the first Add It Up challenge of the year at Paper Issues?

There's 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 use 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 have between 130-140. My project came in at 136 and was made with Simple Stories Life is Purrfect and the FREE Pawprints on My Heart cut file from the Paper Issues store.

Here's the chart and point values:



I hope you'll give it a try and play along! Link your finished project to the Add It Up album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by February 4th for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.
