My second scrapbook order came in today! YAY!!
I bought all this gorgeous stuff from Paper Issues. Some Photo Play “Wild Love”, Carta Bella “Our House” and Crate Paper “La La Love”.
With all my new stuff, I have no idea what I’m going to use for this weeks “52 Favourites” challenge. I might have to participate in another challenge just so I can dig into ALL my new goodies! LOL!
It’s a super snowy day today and I would love to be scrapbooking, but I have a birthday present I’m knitting for a friend that has to get done, so today, knitting it is!!
If you’ve never checked out the Paper Issues store, have a look, They carry the newest stuff all the time!!
Good morning everyone!
Here’s the layout I created yesterday.
It’s for week 4 of my “52 Favourites”, but also I played along with another challenge over at Paper Issues. It’s the “Tic Tac Toe” challenge. You have to use items in squares that form a diagonal, horizontal or vertical line (just like in tic tac toe). I went with a vertical line on the left side of the chart which was “Bears, Patterned Paper and Journaling”.What I like a about challenges are they really help you think outside your scrapbooking box.
For this photo of the bread, I would never have thought of using this title, or a bear on my page for that matter, but by participating in the challenge, I ended up with a much cuter page than I had in mind.For the background, I used a piece of Bazzill Basics Kraft paper and the patterned paper is from Photo Play Paper “Campfire” collection along with the bear sticker. I also cut out the little bear peeking out from behind the journaling from a piece of their paper and the “TODAY” paper I journaled on. The enamel dots are from Simple Stories “Hello Fall” collection.
I’m off now to go to Michaels. I have three 40% off coupons and I’m in desperate need of some new albums since I’ve been scrapbooking so much lately. 😀
Catch up soon!
