Hey everyone... Jess here today with a card/gift card holder that fits right in with the latest issue at Paper Issues: What the #@!$%&. Hashtags are huge right now and I thought it would be fun to hit my Christmas card with one... just for kicks and giggles.

I used Gossamer Blue's Get Happy line and, yep, it made me happy! I love the super cute blocky #Happy wood pieces combined with the scripty Always from Crate Paper.

And the coolest part of this card is the little envelope on the front that can hold a gift card. I love giving gift cards when I can make it more personal and special by wrapping it up with my own special touches. And, come on... a Target gift card makes anyone #HappyAlways.

You still have time to link up by December 21st for a chance to win three packs of flair from our sponsor, Feed Your Craft! We want to your stuff!

December PageMaps!

Happy December, everyone!

You know what the first of every month brings, right?  New PageMaps sketches! And this month I am proud to be among my fellow Paper Issues designers with example layouts that coordinate with the monthly sketches. 

Here was my PageMap:

And here's my layout, featuring Pink Paislee's Merry & Bright collection:

I could not have asked for a better sketch to work with! I always love how fast my layouts come together when I use a sketch.

Make sure you check out the December PageMaps and all of the Paper Issues designers' examples this month!

Witchin' You a Happy Halloween

Oooh we're SO close to my favorite holiday: Halloween! And Paper Issues is celebrating in style with the new Witchin' You a Happy Halloween issue starting today and running through November 9th. Link up: witches, costumes, anything having to do with Halloween, spooky stories, use spook-tacular embellishments, spider webs, create a spooky background maybe using mesh, a stencil, border punches or cheesecloth, document happy times or things that make you happy (chocolate, coffee concoction, family), all about you pages, use SRM products (stickers, borders, bags, etc.)

I created these fun treat bags with products from this issue's sponsor, SRM Stickers! I used kraft bags, round Halloween stickers and many strips of sentiment stickers.The paper is from Simple Stories.

I'm pretty sure my kids' little friends will love these fun bags filled with chocolate covered pretzels, candy, stickers, tattoos, and a bouncy ball. 

Link up and LINK BACK to Paper Issues to be eligible to win a goodie bag of SRM products.  Link up as much as you like, both old and new! You could even be featured on the Paper Issues blog or social media.  Come on... I know you have Halloween projects up your sleeves!
