Together - Paper Issues

Hey there friends.
You have to be a member to watch.  Just request to join and you can see all of the upcoming lives in the Events Section of the page.  

I wasn't sure how I was going to play along with the newest sketch (see below) but I love the end result.  I planned to use the stamp set that I purchased, which is amazing, but I was off on my color choices and it did not match.  At all.  You can see in the video.  I think I'll make a card with it instead.  

I used the new Celebrate Us collection from a collaboration between 
Pinkfresh Studios and Altenew.

The photo is from when I went to Kansas in February to go to a crafters meet up 
and it was so close to my niece, I stayed extra days!  We had so much fun.  Her home is darling and her new husband is even better.   Her and I did little excursions.  This was one to the A&W drive through for Rootbeer floats! It was all right before the whole Corona thing.  

Anyway, here is my layout and Thanks for stopping by!

Love My Mama - Paper Issues

I love this pic of my mom and I on Mother's Day from 2018.
That, and I love a good brunch!  That would probably be my favorite meal ever.  
I wanted to create something really girly and used the Flower Market Collection that I grabbed 
from Paper Issues.  Maybe you grabbed it too?  If so, creating a sideways layout was kinda fun!

Friend - Paper Issues

Hey Friends.

Monday, four crafters from Paper Issues got together on a Live Zoom in Paper Issues Friends and Fans group and create layouts with the same kit.  The challenge was Nothin But the Kitchen Sink.  You have to use EVERYTHING included in the kit.  It was really really amazing to see how all of us came up with completely different looks.  No 2 kits are the exact same.  The ephemera may differ or some of the cut files in this challenge were different.  But three of us had the same file and we were nothing alike!  Go check it out HERE.
Go to Paper Issues and use code: Mary-Ann for 20% off everything.  ALL Cut Files are FREE.  Always. 

Here is my take on the challenge.  Below is the kit.

Wander - Paper Issues

Hey all!
Last night I did a LIVE video of me creating this layout.  
I played along with the Streaks and Stripes challenge for Paper Issues on their PIFF page.

It is worth watching.  I have to scrap, read comments, talk and concentrate all at the same time.  
Go check it out HERE.  
Grab it for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann at the Paper Issues Store.

School - Paper Issues

Morning Friends.  
Today I am playing along with the Zoom, Zoom Zoom challenge over at 
Here are the rules...

Since life can keep you zooming all around, we want to see those 
pages based upon a car trip, your first car or a new car.
You can also scrap about all those ZOOM parties you had during quarantine.

I played along using last day of school photos from a while back.  Roman is getting off the bus.

I used the Scholastic Collection from Authentique.  
Grab this collection or anything else you may want from the Paper Issues Store and

Grab the flair from A Flair for Buttons.
