Lucky Us.

It's a new week and another opportunity to print our weekend photos and scrap!
It's one of the best ways to use up our delicious supplies, while we're still really loving them!

Today the PI girls are on the blog sharing their Monday Issues, by showcasing fall themed pages, while implementing a Kraft or Cork item.

I used the new "Family Fun" collection by Elle's Studio, and added Amy Tangerine "Stitched" thickers.  Ironically enough, the phrases blended with the background, so I decided to add my own stitch lines using a white Tombow Uniball Gel Pen to make the title pop.  I also used my new favorite item that Cassie carries, Tonic Studios Nuvo.  They make drops (which are the equivalent to liquid enamel dots), and the best adhesive you will ever find!  I've used it 3 days in a row and still have not experienced any nozzle clogging.  I used a fiskars cloud punch (3 sizes) to create cloud clusters and my WeRMemory Keepers typecast typewriter to add info to the 3x4 card.

I love how the page turned out and I will be adding additional handwritten journaling at the bottom.

Lady Boss

Good Morning.

Today the PI Girls are challenging you to be minimal with the "Add It Up" challenge.  Your total points should be 50 or less, and I just made the cuff at 50.

This challenge was difficult, as I tend to add on elements to my page (even when I'm done).  So keeping it bare was a real challenge.

I used American Crafts cardstock, navy acrylic paint, 1 stencil, Maggie Holmes' ephemera and Pink Paislee ephemera.  I was so tight with the points, that I couldn't even add journaling.

Whether you need inspiration or want to share what you've created, be sure to visit the Paper Issues Friends & Fans group.  We're a fun community who likes to laugh and talk about pretty paper over coffee.

Aloha 40

Happy Saturday!

Not only do I have a new layout to share with you, but today the PI Girls and I are sharing our take on the sketch challenge.

It's a little tricky.  There's quite a few layers and prints and elements, but I believe you have what it takes to dig through your stash for that one collection you've been holding off on using.  Use it!  You won't ever regret using your paper.  I promise!

Visit the PI Facebook Page or Blog, you'll be sure to get your creative juices flowing and hopefully play along with us.  The more challenges you enter, the more chances you'll have to win prizes...

For this layout I used the "Summer Dreams" collection by Echo Park.
