Believe | Go Go Gadget Girls

There's a challenge over at Paper Issues called Go Go Gadget Girls, which challenges us to use one of our scrappy gadgets. I chose to use my Cuttlebug for this layout:


I basically made the whole layout using die cuts and a chipboard title from Simple Stories Holly Jolly collection.


I added some sprigs from a Tim Holtz die, coated with glitter Nuvo drops, that I just spread on them to give them sparkle.


I adhered the die cuts with foam adhesive to give my layout dimension. Some enamel dots and the sparkly gold doo-dads added to the flower centers gave my layout some additional dimension.


I hope you'll come play in this or one of the many other challenges at Paper Issues. You could win a gift certificate! And if you shop at the store, please use my code, Debbi (no e on the end), and you'll get 20% off your entire purchase!

You Shine | Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday Challenge

I did a third page for Scraplift Sunday challenge at Paper Issues.


Here's the beautiful layout by Amanda that we got to scraplift:

I used PhotoPlay's Mad for Plaid collection from last year. I loved the paper with all those little trees, and when I saw this picture of our grand-niece in the sweet plaid dress, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to fussy cut the trees from that paper.

Here are some details. Once I lined up all the trees, I felt like something more was needed, so I rifled through my Christmas embellishments and found the little poinsettia buttons with the gold pots. And then I found the sparkly green trees by Making Memories, which are really old. I thought they added some interest and dimension.


The glittery elements made me think of looking for a gold glittery title, and I found the word "shine," so that became my title. I always put a heart on the pages I make for the kids, so I added one of the center of the O in the word "you," which is an old BasicGrey alphabet.


I wanted a little cluster at the top too, and I had an extra poinsettia and pot.
