Cheese - Paper Issues

You guys - I have created 2 layouts!!!  
TWO!  I'm so exited.  I created this based on another Scraplift Challenge over at Paper Issues PIFF page.  It is based off of a layout by my pal Devra Hunt.  Instead of using strips of papers layered at the bottom of her page, I used different banners.  That is the best thing about scrap lifts, you can be inspired by any part of it and take it from there!  

I used Vicki Boutin's Kaleidoscope collection that is bright with color!

8th Grade - Paper Issues

I played along with the Scraplift challenge over at Paper Issues PIFF FB Page.  
I have lost my mojo and have been in a crafting funk for some time now. 
I have barely touched paper unless it has been an assignment and usually that is done at the last possible moment.  I needed this lift.  The original was so inspiring.  

I grabbed it from the Paper Issues Store.

I also used the coolest flair from A Flair For Buttons ETSY shop.

Lovely - Paper Issues

Hey there!
Mary-Ann Maldonado here today, sharing my take on this weeks Scraplift Sunday over at the Paper Issues blog

If you head over to PIFF, or Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook page, you can see all of the fun challenges for the month of September, along with this one, which is my favorite.  

I used lots and lots of PinkFresh Just a Little Lovely for my layout.  I also, flipped the layout on the side and had my half circle dropping from the top.  Instead of triangles to create a circle, I used a FREE cut file called Rustic Wreath.  

Go grab what you need from the store for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.

Here is MandaJane's original.

Boston Duck Boats - Paper Issues

Hey friend!
Today I am playing along with the Stamp of Approval Challenge over on the

Dig out your old stamps, dust them off and get to stamping on a card, TN, Layout, whatever!  Don't have any stamps, document your stamp collection or use a postal stamp on your project.  The rules are very loose and entering a new, never before seen project, will qualify you for a chance to win a prize from the Paper Issues Store.

I dug out some new and older stamps from Elle's Studio and Kaisercraft created a background behind a Free Cut file - Star of the Show.  

Then I started layering and layering and really got carried away with the Echo Park Pirate Tales collection.
