Applecrest - Paper Issues

Join the Paper Issues team as we celebrate my favorite month, October, with a little challenge called Rocktober.  We are giving you prompts for the season, an reasons to document your fun family times.  

I played along using Pebbles Midnight Haunting. 
The collection is a little spooky and a little cute!

YAY - A Flair for Buttons

We love a good fair and the Topsfield one is pretty great. We have tried to go the last few years.  We love to eat the junk and ride the rides.  Roman is the most daring.  If I ride anything that spins, I am done for the day.  Maybe even a few days!  

So, today, I am on the A Flair for Buttons blog with a fun layout using the Maggie Holmes Carousel collection, a FREE Carousel Cut File from Paper Issues and 4 different sets of flair from A flair for Buttons to replicate the seats on the ride.  

I grabbed this collection from Paper Issues for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.


Carve it Up - Paper Issues

Being October, Paper Issues thought it would be fun to do a Rocktober tribute over on their Facebook page (PIFF!)  I received a large Swag Bag-ish style pouch filled with goodies for a travel journal or a layout.  What ever you may want.  I decided to get some of my photos documented from last year.  

I did grab 2 larger 12x12 papers from Pebbles and Thickers to add to the kit.  

Here are the prompts if you want to play along.

Halloween - Fancy Pants

Fancy Pants has teamed up with Pagemaps for a little product, sketch swap.  I was lucky enough to get to play along.  
Below is the sketch that I was given to create off of.  Of course, I was completely inspired and couldn't help but use a cardboard french bull dog calendar that I had.  I covered him with stripped paper that matched the inmate theme.  Instead of 9 photos or papers, I used 4 larger photos.  

For the papers, I used the new Spellbound collection from Fancy Pants.  It is so adorable.  


Haunted - Paper Issues

Other DT members played along too. 
If you need the collection I used, grab it from the Paper Issues store for

I used Pink Pailsee Spellcast and I love IT!!!

70 - Paper Issues

The new September Swag Bag arrived to me just in time for me to play along with the September Swag Bag spotlight!  I opened it and gasped!  I love pom pom ribbon.  Its my jam.  

Here is the Swag Bag.  
You can grab it from the Paper Issues store for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.  You can use that code on anything you want!

Here is how I played along!  I used the bag that it came in!  I drew out the numbers '70' and cut them out.  Added them to my page for the title.  It was my moms 70th and we had a party for her!

Happy Moments - A Flair for Buttons

Good Morning!  
Today is my day over on the A Flair for Buttons Blog.  I couldn't help but bring in black and white flair to accompany the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Carousel Collection from Crate Paper.  

I think so many things would match but I had to get that big bow on there, and needed  black and white to help blend it in.  

All the flair you could possibly want is in the A Flair for Buttons ETSY shop.  If you are looking for this paper collection, head to the Paper Issues store to grab it for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann

Lunch Date - Queen and Company

Join me on the Queen and Company Blog today, where I used loads of fun, coordinating embellishments to enhance my photos.  If you NEED these fun little goodies, go HERE to grab some.  I started with the Shaped Shaker Tag Kit and then built up from there!


6th Grade - Paper Issues

Good morning!  It is Pinspire Me Mood Board time over at Paper Issues.  Each month, I create a mood board off of fun photos and inspiration that I see on Pinterest.  I create a board for the team and our friends as a challenge.  Anyone can play along.  Create something from the board and upload it to the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook page, under Pinspire Me for a chance to win a prize to the PI store.  

I used Crate Paper Cool Kid for my layout.  I love the colors, the stripes from the crayons and lockers and obviously the theme.  Because there was no purple in the collection, I brought in a straw and old buttons to tie in the color.  Grab this collection or anything else you may want from the PI store for 20% off when you use code: Mary-Ann.

Here is the board...
