Pink Paislee Outfitters Spotlight!

The product spotlight for today at Paper Issues, is on the new Pink Paislee line, Outfitters.  I wasn't too sure about this line, because while we DO camp from time to time, we aren't truly a rustic family who hikes and forages for food. 

I actually chose pictures from Disney World to use, from Expedition Everest.  We didn't really go on it.  Just posed in front of it.  That kinda counts, right?  But we DID seriously debate it, as Makenna is a bit more adventurous than my other 2 were when it came to the bigger coasters at Disney.  One day I'll conquer my fear, maybe when it's Braydens turn he'll want to try.

Sunny Days Are Here!

Hello!!  It was my turn up on the Paper Issues Blog today, and I decided to put the spotlight on the Elle's Studios Sunny Days collection that I recently picked up from the PI store.

Fantastic colors, awesome papers... some that you can cut out little bits and pieces from to make your own little embellishments.  Definately something to pick up if you have lots of beachy type photos to scrapbook!!  Remember to use the code 'Chelsea' for 20% off of your PI purchase!!

Sketch it Up!

Amy has done up a new sketch for Paper Issues for July!  It's awesome, featuring a big ass star.  I love stars.  So many options for this one, cut out a star, matte a few stars together, stitch it out, use a cut file... the possibilities are endless!!

I tend to start with a sketch and if I work too hard at it, it ends up looking NOTHING like the sketch.  That's where I was starting to go with this one but decided to stop and post. haha!
I couldn't get the start looking right, so I opted for a large circle as my background, but made sure I used the paper with stars on it. :)

You can find the papers I worked with HERE in the PI store, they are from Webster's Pages Make a Wish line.  I also used a few of the cards from one of the Project Life foil packages, however I can't see that particular pack in the store anymore.

You can shop for any of this paper, and many others, using my code!!

Pinspire me at Paper Issues

Mary-Ann has come up with yet another breathtaking mood board for the month of July at Paper Issues, take a peek at what some of the DT created with it!  Pinks and yellows and oranges, soft summer drinks, cool flip flops... ack, I can't stand it!

I created this layout mainly based on the color palette, along with the yummy tasty treats. :)  The Dole Whip is BY FAR one of my favorite treats at Disney!!!

POP your page!

Have you seen the paperPOPS in the PI Store?  They are super cute, made by Parker on the Porch for the PI store.  Some come with planner clips included, which can be taken out to use on their own on layouts, cards, etc.  I used a pop with a clip for a layout but left the clip on to attach it to my photo!

This is the Photo Play Real Genius line, you can find it HERE in the shop.

Take 5 Tuesday!

It's time for another Take 5 Tuesday!!  Mary Ann has come up with another list to pick your 5 choices from, but you don't have to stop at just 5 of them!!

I chose red, white, blue, punched a border with my punch, and alpha stickers.  Head over to the PIFF FB group to find her complete list!!

This was made using the new Pebbles line America the Beautiful.
I'm proud to be Canadian, but this line was kinda cute and I have a LOT of American friends :)

New Issue with Paper Issues - Gleam Catchers!

Happy Monday Everyone!

We're celebrating a new issue over at Paper Issues, Lisa kicked it off on the blog this morning, 
it's called Gleam Catchers!!  This really got me excited because I'm a lover of all things gold, and stars, and well... pretty much anything she asked us to use for the challenge.

You can find the other girls inspiration on the blog at the link above, and you can upload your own masterpiece into the July Challenge Album over at PIFF!

I cut out some stars from some gold confetti vellum, and then spray painted some smaller cork stars with gold spraypaint as well.  Didn't stop there, as I sprinkled some gold paint alongside them too!

I used a Heidi Swapp glitter word sticker, originally it was all one piece to say 'photobomb' but I cut it apart to make a little bit different of a title.

Now let's see what you can do!!
