Something a little Knot-ical This Way Comes!

I didn't jump fast enough to get on the new issue train for June, so I decided to do up a layout and make it into my blog post for this month.  I found my October Afternoon Treasure Map papers, or at least the bits and pieces that I had left... I loved this line... and worked on this little piece.  Adding some glittery stars around the universe was the final touch.  

If you haven't tried your hand at one of the Issues at PI, come on over and check it out!  You can win yourself a gc to the PI store.  Truly addicting place.  Believe me.

And as always, get 20% off of that addicting place with the code 'Chelsea'.

The PI team is spotlighting the Carta Bella Beach Day line over on the blog today!  I love this line, the colors and designs are so bright and fun and fabulous!!  I'm kicking myself for not buying more of it when I was doing my last order, but I guess I'll survive.

Head on over to the PI blog to see what the other ladies created with this super sunny line!

Sketchy Saturday with some Little You!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I love working with the sketches from Amy Coose at Paper Issues!  This is the fun sketch that was created for us to play around with....

And here is my take on it using the very cute Little Girl line from Crate Paper Little You.  Equally cute is the Little Boy line.  I used a Simple Stories woodgrain full size paper for my background and I just love the warmth it gave the layout, especially for the pictures I chose to use.

We don't own a dog, we aren't a dog family... but our friend's dog had a litter and he kept one of them and brought him over for a little playdate, the kids loved it!

Come and play along and post your layout in the June monthly challenges album at PIFF!!  And I know that Cassie just added some of the 6x6 woodgrain paper pads to the Paper Issues store as well as the 12x12's, hop on over and pick one up before they are gone!!

Pinspire Me!

Tell me you don't LOVE this mood board that Mary-Ann created for inspiration over at PIFF.  It just screams summer, fun, relaxation..... love the colors!!! 

 It was PERFECT for the Beach Day line from Carta Bella!!  The sun, the colors, it all matched up so well.  I love the chevron paper the best, of course.  As always.

How will it inspire you in your scrappy room?  I'd love to see it posted over in the challenge album!

Sketchy Challenge

Hey!  I thought I'd play around with the May sketch at Creative Scrapbooker Magazine... It's been awhile since I took part in one of their monthly sketches and I had a picture of my boy that was begging to be used....

I decided with the bright, fun colors of Imaginisce Sunny to make a good punch of color against the white background, especially since my photo was less than stellar in quality and lighting. lol

Thanks for checking in!!!

Printables from Paper Issues

So there's these things, at Paper Issues, called printables.  Best part, is that they are FREE.  Second best part, is that they are super cute!!  You can find them HERE in the shop along with the downloadable cut files.  Which I can't use, since I don't have a machine with which to use them.  Yet.  Fingers are crossed for my birthday. lol

The printable I used belonged to this collection called Eat All The Things.  I found the ONE picture I knew I had of my daughter eating an ice cream cone during a Disney break, and went to work!

On this layout I used Crate Paper's Little You, diving into both of the Little Boy and Little Girl papers.  I added a few embellies from Shimelle Starshine and called it a day.  I thought the blues and pinks were perfect for matching the photo of her beloved Elsa sweater she bought herself.

I highly recommend checking out all of the free files at Paper Issues, something for everyone!
