Snow Bunnies

A new scrapbook sketch is here to save your scrappy mojo! Paper Issues has a brand new Sketchy Saturday will jump start your creativity for this weekend :)

I almost always reach for a sketch when I'm making a scrapbook page. Or if there's a page I like, I turn it into my own little sketch before making my page. Kind of like scraplifting, but not totally? Anyways, I like sketches!

My puppies are so photogenic in the snow! Even in the biggest blizzard of Baltimore history! I used a lot of Crate Paper "Hello Love" and Crate Paper "Wonder". The thickers were originally white and gold, but I painted the white parts pink so they would stand out a little more on the background.

Side note: I've finally accepted/embraced my handwriting. It is what it is!

Scrap and Chat Challenge

There is a super fun Paper Issues Scrap and Chat online get together happening right now! Maybe you need to get away from all the Super Bowl madness and join in some fun challenges with the Paper Issues crew!

The first challenge is this fun game-inspired mood board. I chose the Blue side and the house photo in the top row. This was the perfect chance to scrap my new home in the blizzard!

I used Dear Lizzy "Happy Place" papers mixed with some Crate Paper "Wonder" papers and ephemera pieces. The challenge was so perfect for my little winter home with the blue door! I also scraplifted this layout design from Sherry Coogan for today's Scraplift Sunday.

The next challenge for the Scrap and Chat is to put a heart on it! Just add a heart and you're good!

I just found this photo in my phone and I'm so bummed I didn't find it earlier! This picture is from July 2015, and it's a selfie of my mom, my dad, and me at Chautauqua... our favorite family vacation! This was our 5th time (maybe 6th?) visiting.

This layout uses paper and ephemera from Crate Paper "Hello Love" and thickers from Crate Paper "Wonder". I also scraplifted this layout design from Janet Grzanka-Dlugokenski for a previous Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday challenge.

So make sure to play along with these game day challenges! You can join all the fun at the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook page

Woodland Valentine's Cards

I know today is all about the Super Bowl, but don't forget that Valentine's Day is one week away! So while you're eating pounds of chicken wings, nachos, and fries, be thinking about your Valentine card ideas and go get crafty!... if you aren't in a food coma anyway ;)

Just a couple days ago Unity Stamp Co released a ton of brand new stamps, including more cuties from artist Tifany DeGough called Little Woodland Creatures. Don't you just wanna squish their cute round chubby faces?! And the sentiments are darling for Valentine's Day :)

I love how easy these images are to fussy cut, so you can move the animals around until you get a little scene that you're happy with. I colored everything in today's post with Prismacolor Pencils. I also used a variety of dies from Lawn Fawn and My Favorite Things.

I had more Little Woodland Creatures colored and cut, so I threw together another little animal scene. They're just so cute!
