Product Spotlight: Love

Another week of showing off some awesome scrapbook product at Paper Issues. And this week it is all about Heidi Swapp’s Magnolia collection. I’ll be totally honest here I was not going to get this collection. We all have collections that we say to ourselves OH THIS IS ME and others that are like ITS PRETTY BUT NOT FOR ME. That is how I felt about this line. But then it was chosen for a product spotlight and there I was with it in my cart. And I’m glad I went for it.

The colors are so pretty, the blacks and pinks I’m totally digging that. And the ephemera has some great little bits, word strips, touches of gold and cardboard! The acetate words are great and I’ll be grabbing them for some time to come. So if you have been on the fence for this collection I kid you not when I say go for it.

I made this page quickly and I’m not a fast scrapper. I started with the 3×3 Love card and all the other ephemera then I added the photo and other layered paper. Easy peasy it was all done and I like it!

Take Five: Fine Little Day

It has been a while since I’ve finished a Take Five challenge, it has always been one of my favorite challenges and this month is no exception. Its always fun to dig in my stash to find things that work, or use a collection that totally works on its own. This month I used Dear Lizzy’s new line and it was the perfect fit.

I did use a digital template from Simple Scrapper which was a load of fun. All these little 2.5 squares were a great way to fill the page and I printed out some journaling on white card stock. The added stitching was fun and I think it added that little something needed to this page.

So join in this months Take 5 challenge and have some fun. Remember if you need to go shopping use my code and save 20% off our order

March Sketch: Full Bloom

Its another new sketch at Paper Issues and this is not something I usually do. Many would think well I do digital templates to a sketch should be easy for me, but it isn’t. I don’t know what gives me a mental block of with sketches but I’m hoping I pulled it off this time.

So this is the sketch and I kind of worked off the three photos there and the lower right title. What I first had planned didn’t work out so well so I had to be flexible 🙂 When I got to the finishing line I just felt that my LO lacked balance and needed to put something above the photos so I went with some more 3×4 cuts of paper. I think that works out much better then leaving it bare.

Bit of a cloudy day here to photograph but this is it. I used the Pebbles Tealightful collection that is in the shop. I am a tea lover so had to get it and somehow I went nature. Sometimes you need to follow the creative lead.
