Holiday Wishes card

This card is for Corri's card sketch challenge for December on Paper Issues F&F Facebook group.
I layered bits from Pink Paislee, Basic Grey, American Crafts, and really old Scenic Route.


I loved the tree stamps and made the paper take on a vintage look by dragging the edge of a inked paper from an ink pad over the card.
I double stamped the title in red and black.
Using Photo Play paper to make a 40th birthday card.
More 40th birthday card images.

Dear Santa

I love drawing inspiration from mood boards and this month at Paper Issues is no different! Check out this Pinspired board:
I loved the large dandelion and translated that into the mega snowflake. The striped background is a cut file from Just Nick Studio and worked with design images from the striped onesie. I pulled in the Color Cast Designs wood veneer to bring in the circle image and background color of the onesie along with the Pink Paislee tag.
I used a variety of Simple Stories DIY Christmas, Bella Blvd, and Studio Calico papers.
This layout will link up to Paper Issues issue called, "Owl I want for Christmas."

Owl I Want for Christmas card

Fancy Pants Designs True Friend collection owl was the perfect size to pop up over Chic Tags pocket page card. The   owl replaces "All" for a fun play on words. This card goes right into the current issue on the PI blog. 
I popped up the owland sentiment card. Next, I added stitching, twine, a Dear Lizzy cork bow, and AC stars to add textures. A quick card to go with my favorite Mariah Carey Christmas song (minus the owl) in the lyrics!! Happy Holidays!

For the Fall crop at PI, they had a mood board challenge.  The mint, gray, and gold popped out at me as a great starting point for this layout.  The children posed for pictures this autumn and they make us so filled with love and happiness!  It was easy to find a title to connect to my kiddos! I layered several papers and textures to the Pink Paislee Memorandum paper border.  I love the minty/aqua acrylic frame tucked under the photo. I added the tag, flair, and gold splats of paint to complete this page.
