Paper Issues: Die Cutting Saturday

Happy Saturday Everyone!  I have a fun layout today featuring the new, free cut file from Paper Issues Die Cutting Saturday!!!  I created my layout using the November Sketch from Fancy Pants Designs and some Fancy Pants True Friends collection.
 
 
And here's a look at the fabulous cut files that were created by Jen Chapin!!  They are available in a Silhouette file as well as individual PNG files that can be used as digital elements or with other cutting machines like Cricut Explore.
 

I used the Scribble Circle and the Grateful word files as part of my title.

 
I traced the leaf files using the trace function in my Silhouette to create a solid version of each leaf to use as a backing to Jen's original files.


 
We'd love to see what you create with these cut files!!!  Link up your creations here for your chance to win the Paper Issues December Swag Bag!  You have until December 5th to link up!

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

Paper Issues: Get Your Game On

Hi Everyone, I have a layout for the latest issue at Paper Issues, "Get Your Game On."  We're looking for projects that showcase anything sports, game night or your favorite activities.  I used some True Friend from Fancy Pants Designs to create this layout of my daughter and her gymnastics team at their state competition last spring.
 
 
I think this collection is going to go down as one of my all time favorites!  I love the muted colors and the great stickers and embellies!  Here are some close-ups...
 




Make sure to link up your sports/game related projects here for a chance to win a $20 Gift Card to the Paper Issues Store.  You have until November 23rd to link for your chance to win!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Designs: So Thankful for You

Hi Everyone, Today, I have a layout I created for Doodlebug Design combining both the Happy Camper and Friendly Forest Collections.  I can't get over how well these two lines work together!  Take a peek:

 
I decided the best way to showcase how well these collections coordinate was to create a quilt-like background. I found my Hexagon Sizzix Die and got to work!

 
Even the stickers mixed and match perfectly.  The flowers and leaves are from Friendly Forest and the border strips are from Happy Camper. I also used some Fall Sprinkles and a Fall Mini Clothespin which are part of both collections!

 
I love the fact that these collections work so well together!  It gives me so many more options when I'm creating!  That's it for me today.  Make sure to keep stopping by the Doodlebug Design blog to see more inspiration from the Design Team!  Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Issues: Witchin' You a Happy Halloween

Hi Everyone, I'm up on the Paper Issues blog today with a layout I created for the "Witchin' You a Happy Halloween" Issue.  My girlie doesn't trick or treat anymore...but I found some really cute pictures of her and her friends carving pumpkins a couple of years ago.  Take a peek:

 
I used Doodlebug Design's Ghouls & goodies collection...I'm such a sucker for Halloween Collections!!  I love the fun embellies!  I also added a couple of flair buttons from Toni From Designs.  They coordinated perfectly!  Here are some more close-ups...



 
 
Make sure to link up your Halloween projects to the "Witchin' You a Happy Halloween" Issue...you could win a fab prize pack from our sponsor, SRM Stickers.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
