We've Got Issues....Gleam Catchers Addition...

You don't don't call...

Ok, ok, ok...I know it's been awhile! But, you know...holidays, a wedding, a honeymoon, Little League, Volleyball, Basketball...LIFE! I've been a little busy but I'm back!

There is a brand spankin' new Issue starting over at Paper Issues today and it's a good one! Check out the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook page for all the details on how YOU could be a winner for playing along!

I used the Starshine line from Shimelle for American Crafts for this layout of Anson comforting Jaxson during a thunder and lightening storm. This kid is NOT a fan of thunder at all! No thank you, please!
 I loved this celestial background paper and I wanted to use it for a layout where I would be able to see a lot of the paper. I did minimal layering with some patterned paper strips and chipboard from Shimelle's collections and then I added a few silver puffy star stickers from Twine & Ink to finish off the layout.

Simple and fun! Most importantly, another moment documented!

Planner Love...

Hello lovelies! We are talking about our 2016 goals over on the Paper Issues blog today

I am sharing my first week of January from my Plum Paper Planner. I included a few of my 2016 goals on my week 1 spread as a reminder!

Most of the items used for this week come from the Simple Stories Carpe Diem collection.  I also can't resist adding in an exclusive Paper Issues PaperPOP handmade by Parker on the Porch!

I also filled in with some stickers from Craftcake Designs as well!

TwoFer Tuesday at Paper Issues...

It's Two-Fer Tuesday today! This month I am up on the Paper Issues blog with a new double page layout that I la la la love! I kept the design of my page pretty simple with 3.75" square photos and patterned papers.

I used the Shine line by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper.  The best thing about Maggie's lines is the abundance of embellishments! Be sure to check out all the details over on the Paper Issues blog!

Thank you so much for taking a look today! Be sure to link up your double page layouts in the January Challenge Album in order to win one of two $10 gift cards for this month! You'll need to be a member of the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group to play along!

Sketch Inspired...

Hello! There is a new sketch up on the Paper Issues blog designed by Amy Coose. Such a great sketch with so many possibilities!


I played along using the Wish Season line from Fancy Pants! This line has so many embellishments and I loved working with these colors coupled with the snow day photos!

Die cuts, flair badges, diction stickers, chipboard, puffy stickers - this line had it all!

The papers are great for both snow days or Christmas!

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look! Don't forget to add your take on the sketch to the challenge thread in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} group on Facebook!
