Cassies Birthday Bash = Free Stuff!!!

Welcome to Cassies Birthday Bash......she is the one responsible for all the fun at Paper Issues!

And because she makes us all so fun, we are giving away LOTS of prizes!!!!!  Oh yeah!!!!
Be sure and check out our FB page for even more giveaways!!!

I've decided to be a rebel and not give away something scrappy.....whats that you say?????

Yep.......I've just opened an etsy shop, like yesterday ;)
and I want to share one of my favorite products with one of you!!!
all you need to do is follow my blog and leave a comment......stopping by my shop wouldn't hurt either, but not required ;)

These dish towels are made from flour sack cloths that I embellish with cute fabric  (it's almost like scrapbooking!)  They are large (aprox. 29x28) and perfect for decor or actually drying dishes!

I've only got a few things in my shop right now, but these towels will be making an appearance along with some of these items as well.....

Camera Straps
 Awesome Bibs!  (i'll be making boy ones too ;)

 Large hair bows
 More Camera Straps!

 Let me know what you like!

And happy birthday Cassie!!!

Paper Issues DT

Paper Issues has announced their new design team and I'm excited I get to stay on and party more with these fun ladies!  

Check out the entire list here ;)

It's also birthday week and we are giving away ALL KINDS of prizes!!!  Be sure to like us on FB and follow all the fun.....I'll be giving away something special (and NOT scrappy related)

I'm still playing with our Spring kit Lucky You.......and loving it!

These pics of our little Jack crack me up.....he was not happy about being put in that yellow duck!  But as you can see, he got over it.

This one of Samantha tells quite a story too!  It was her first time on Splash Mnt. at Disneyland and she was a wild little girl and couldn't wait to try it.......she got SOAKED!!!!  Drenched is more like it....did that 5 year old cry????  Heck no!  She partied and hooped and hollered and thought it was the best ride ever!!!!  She has been a roller coaster monster ever since ;)  Though it was a Dec. evening and there was NO way those clothes were going to dry.  Guess who got to buy the most expensive outfit ever in the park??!!

This kit has been perfect!  And so many possibilities with color combinations.  Get yours now before it's gone in the Paper Issues Shop

Don't forget you can use my code CAROL for 20% off 
your entire order ;)

Sewing on Paper

I've got a blog post up over at Scraptastic about how I sew on my pages,
It's not rocket science but there is a chance you could learn something......if you don't already know it! ha!

Here's the layout I made for it......

 aack!  my heart.....love these babies.  Can't believe how little they are, seems like yesterday.

I am loving this kit...it's so pretty and funky with lots of cool bits.  Those bubble stamps, fun!  Jessica might just be turning me into a stamper, a subtle one anyways.

Get yer kit here
Those bubbles are on the "8 Days a Week" set.

Lucky You!!!

I'm so excited about the new kit at Paper Issues, Lucky YOU!
Audrey Yeager and I designed it together ;)   It was super fun and I hope you love it as much as we do!  It is filled with the latest product, lots of bold colors and a variety of fun embellishments. 

You can save 20% by using my code CAROL in the 
Paper Issues Shop  Don't wait, get it before it's gone!

This layout came together so easily and I didn't feel like I needed anything extra when creating.

   I'll be back later this week to share more layouts with this kit.

Get more inspiration at these fabulous ladies blogs ;)

April Scraptastic Kit

Scraptastic April kits are on sale!
This month I chose Awake My Soul......go get it here ;)
It's filled with Fancy Pants, Teresa Collins and Dear Lizzy.....it's pretty and funky all at the same time!


I was totally drawn to this bold stripe and went for it right away!  Just a bit of dark blue to ground it along with lots of soft layers keeps this pretty fun but not overwhelming....to me at least ;)

 I can't wait to play some more with this kit....between pneumonia and spring break the last few weeks have been a blur.  I'm ready to get back into the swing of things for sure ;)
