I {heart} my wiener...

Today I am up on the Paper Issues blog with the other PI girls featuring the Paper Issues Swag Bags and the FREE Paper Issues Printable Files

I used patterned papers from my scrap stash, some wood bits and the new Bella Blvd fabric bows, (which I looooove) paired with the March printable for this layout of my little Nick-Knack! 

I have had so much fun designing the Paper Issues printables over the last few months and I am learning all new things about Photoshop! 

These October Afternoon sticker alphas are some of my favorite - I have them in every color! 

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!

Cut it out Saturday...

Hello! There is a new FREE cut file up on the Paper Issues blog created by Jen Chapin this morning and I lurve it a lot! 

I used the navy constellation paper from Dear Lizzy's Hello Beautiful paired with the gold foil cardstock from Fancy Pants and I really love the results!

I added a title cut out from gold vellum on my Silhouette, some scraps of patterned paper from my stash and a glassine bag as layers under and around this sweet photo of Olivia fast asleep on Lily's pillow! 

I am also deeply in love with the new Bella Blvd fabric bows! You need them all! In every color! Trust me!  

Be sure to check out the FREE files section of the Paper Issues shop for more awesome cut files, printables and sketches

Swag Bag-alicious...

I am a relatively new Paper Issues Swag Bag convert! I got my first Swag Bag in February and I was pleasantly surprised with all of the bits and bobs included in the bag! I got a great deal of mileage out of February's bag with four 12x12 LOs! Ladies...that's FOUR layouts for $7.99!! ($9.99 less 20% with the code "Becky"!). You seriously CANNOT beat that deal!

Today I am sharing this layout of Connor and Olivia cuddling on the couch! Our pups love nothing more than a stinky little boy. Stinky little boys are their favorite!!

The papers, mini cork heart, exclusive acrylic blue "love," and the "We go together like" banner are all from the February Swag Bag and then I added some cork shapes from my stash as well as the heart paper clip and the red LOVE from Color Cast Designs Reflections set.

Thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look today!

We've got new issues...

There is a new Link Party over on the Paper Issues blog today! Painting by the Numbers, sponsored by Waffle Flower, is all about those digits! 
Here are some ideas for what could you link up to Painting by the Numbers:
  • Add numbers to your project, whether they're embellishments, stickers, stamps, etc.
  • Use patterned paper that has rulers, calendars or numbers on it.
  • Try your hand at mixed media or painting — watercolors, gelatos, inks, mists, etc.
  • Dust off your stamp sets (yes, the ones you've been "saving") and stamp on your project.
  • Anything having to do with St. Patrick's Day.
  • Use Waffle Flower Crafts' products (you can hashtag your projects on Facebook, Pinterest and/or Instagram using #waffleflowercrafts).
I used the "boys only" line by Doodlebug Designs to document the 2012 Soccer season. The addition of the Waffle Flower Calendar Number Stamps helped make these non-sports themed papers work perfectly!

By linking up to the Paper Issues blog you could win these Waffle Flower Calendar Numbers stamps!

Be sure to check out Waffle Flower here:
