Snuggle {Paper Issues Free File Free-for-all Challenge

Have you seen all the amazing and FREE cut files available at Paper Issues? Here's a page I made last week using the Interlocking Hearts Background cut file.


Here are some details. I pretty much made the whole layout with Crate Paper's Little You collection, with just a few extra elements from my stash. I backed the cut file with papers from the 6 x 6 pad. The only exception with the paper is the orange piece. I mounted the backed cut file to my page with pop dots. There's a sweet fox face on the chipboard sheet, but no papers to match, so I dug through my stash to find a matching color. The background paper is an old Cosmo Cricket paper that I thought matched pretty well.


Here's that cute little sleepy fox. I added a tiny speech bubble from a stamp set by My Mind's Eye.


I hope you'll try one of the free cut files at the Paper Issues store, and while you're there check out their new goodies. Use my code, Debbi (no e on the end) and you'll get 20% off your entire order!

Bay Escape {CSI Case File No. 260 + Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All Challenge}

Our newest challenge is live at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration!

Here's my page. I loved the Scene and wanted my page to have the same lovely vibe. As I always do, I like to challenge myself to use as many of the Evidence clues. My page started with the anchor, which is one of those clues. Also from the Evidence list, I used the solid white background, florals, stripes, spiral punch, camera, anchor, flowers, watercolor, gold, twine, labels, brush lettering, and glitter. I also used the colors from the traditional Case File clues. From the Testimony, I documented a trip and used the word escape for part of my title.


Here are some details. I decided to combine this challenge with Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All challenge. I used this awesome free anchor cut-file from Paper Issues as the starting point for my page. I printed it out on an old BasicGrey paper that I thought sort of looked like waves and hand-stitched around the edge. I grabbed some odds and ends from my stash to match the color scheme.


The cameras were cut out of a Dear Lizzy paper.


I added water color in two different blues using the packaging technique to look like water splashes, and then added sequins to look like water drops. The glittery gold circles are reinforcements.


I hope you'll come play at CSI--we've got 13 sponsors donating prizes and gift certificates!


And I hope you'll try one of the free cut files at the Paper Issues store, and while you're there check out their new goodies. Use my code, Debbi (no e on the end) and you'll get 20% off your entire order!
