70 - Paper Issues

The new September Swag Bag arrived to me just in time for me to play along with the September Swag Bag spotlight!  I opened it and gasped!  I love pom pom ribbon.  Its my jam.  

Here is the Swag Bag.  
You can grab it from the Paper Issues store for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.  You can use that code on anything you want!

Here is how I played along!  I used the bag that it came in!  I drew out the numbers '70' and cut them out.  Added them to my page for the title.  It was my moms 70th and we had a party for her!

Happy Moments - A Flair for Buttons

Good Morning!  
Today is my day over on the A Flair for Buttons Blog.  I couldn't help but bring in black and white flair to accompany the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Carousel Collection from Crate Paper.  

I think so many things would match but I had to get that big bow on there, and needed  black and white to help blend it in.  

All the flair you could possibly want is in the A Flair for Buttons ETSY shop.  If you are looking for this paper collection, head to the Paper Issues store to grab it for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann

6th Grade - Paper Issues

Good morning!  It is Pinspire Me Mood Board time over at Paper Issues.  Each month, I create a mood board off of fun photos and inspiration that I see on Pinterest.  I create a board for the team and our friends as a challenge.  Anyone can play along.  Create something from the board and upload it to the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook page, under Pinspire Me for a chance to win a prize to the PI store.  

I used Crate Paper Cool Kid for my layout.  I love the colors, the stripes from the crayons and lockers and obviously the theme.  Because there was no purple in the collection, I brought in a straw and old buttons to tie in the color.  Grab this collection or anything else you may want from the PI store for 20% off when you use code: Mary-Ann.

Here is the board...

Fancy Cards - Fancy Pants

Join me on the Fancy Pants blog today where I am sharing 2 really fun cards.  Very similar but with different collections, they look completely different.  Also, I used Artisan Glassine bags for the envelopes instead of the traditional.  These will have to be hand delivered but, still a pretty gift all in its self.  

If you are interested in these fun Fancy Pants collections, grab them over in the Paper Issues Store
for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.
