Hello Sunshine!

It just so happens that the current Paper Issues issue has the same name as my favorite new Pink Paislee collection: Hello Sunshine!  How conveeeeeeenient!

I was up at the Pink Paislee blog this weekend featuring this Pinterest inspired project with a printable birthday interview and coordinating traditional page.

Count Your Lucky Stars!

It’s new issue day at Paper Issues and this round we’re planning to Count Your Lucky Stars!  The theme is open to your interpretation and could include projects for St. Patrick's Day, someone you're star struck over, movie stars, astrology, astronomy, use stars on your page, counting on someone or something, chance encounters, fortune cookies, or anything else you can relate!

Our generous sponsor for this issue is Lori Whitlock and if you link up your project you could win a $25 GC to the Lori Whitlock store!

I used her fun star cluster cut file on this layout:

I have stars all over the place on this sucker… it certainly qualifies for counting my lucky stars! I also used a bunch of As You Wish from Fancy Pants Designs.  I love this collection.

Have you checked out the Paper Issues swag bags yet??  It’s super fun to get an inexpensive collection of all sorts of ephemera and embellishments each month!  I used a whole bunch of the March Swag Bag on my layout today:

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day!  As usual I was down to the wire getting all our treats prepared but it happened. This year I used the Be.Loved. collection from Fancy Pants Designs in all my valentine creations.  It’s so cute and I love that there are more colors than red and pink to dress up this holiday. 

First up, the preschooler treats: these are s’more bags with graham crackers, Hershey bar, and heart shaped marshmallow Peeps!

I used the Cameo to cut the little s’mores out.  They’re so adorable I want to eat them. 

Next, our teacher gift is one of those $1 reusable Starbucks cups with a pretty valentine sleeve and tag.

We filled it up with a Starbucks card and chocolate.

And finally a sweet card for my love bird:

I love the new foil papers from Fancy Pants! This is the red here in the background and I have already cruised through a bunch of the silver and gold. They cut like buttah in the Cameo!
