Good Things

Sunday, November 24, 2019

Hey there! It's Scraplift Sunday at Paper Issues and I'm sharing my lift of Cassie W's page on the Paper Issues Blog today!   You can check out her layout below.

I am totally in love with the Paper Issues Monthly kits.  I couldn't wait to tear or umm, cut into it. They are pure heaven. Have you noticed that each month kind of mixes well with the previous month?!?! Genius!  

Anyway, I love that Cassie's LO is on an angle but I was not feeling that. Nope. I straightened out the design. Other than that. I pretty much lifted the entire thing. Well. ok, I made some changes because that's what I do! I moved the title to the bottom and journaled between the photos on one of the Pink Paislee Again & Again ephemera. I added some sequins from the November Swag Bag , and also lots of Again & Again stickers. Did you know pieces of the monthly kits are usually stocked individually in the shop? Well you do now!  Lastly, Nuvo drops. Always Nuvo drops.

I have a thing about cherries. I think it stems from a  poem my Grandma used to read to me. At one time I could recite it from memory. Since moving here, all I've ever wanted to do was go cherry picking. This year we finally did. The day was awesome from start to finish. We met up with one of my Paper Issues friends, picked many pounds of cherries, ate blueberry donuts, took some amazing photos, then went out for Mexican food for lunch. I can't wait to go back again next summer.

Fall Wreath

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Hey there! I'm on the Paper Issues blog today with a project inspired by the Aspiration challenge. I made something totally different than usual for me. I made a paper wreath.

Now, I probably should tell how how I got from a cake to a wreath right? Well, here goes. It's not really that big of a leap. I was inspired bu the circles, the stacked layers, and the navy blue accents. 

The fabulous Thankful 30 Kit had just arrived and I couldn't wait to dig in to it. It is filled with the best mix of fall papers!!! I was already working on my Thankful 30 project, and just in the grateful mood. I had seen a paper wreath last fall at a local craft store and decided to make my own. 

I grabbed all of the Simple Stories Fall Farmhouse  papers from the kit, cut all the strips, about 60 of them, then glued them into loops and layered them around a chipboard circle. My favorite part of this is the giant bow I made from the Polka Dot Heart & Bow cut file.  See! Circles, layers and navy blue. 

It's good to change things up a bit!  Sometimes getting our of my box sparks a little extra creativity. Now I cant wait to go make more things!
