Paper Issues: Making it Merry

Hi guys!! I am super excited to be a part of the Making it Merry issue over at Paper Issues! Well, I am always excited to be on a issue, but this one means something extra. Wanna know why? Because it is sponsored by Gossamer Blue!!! Yay! I am in love with their products! L.O.V.E! So yeah, I've been a little giddy ever since I received their gorgeous Get Happy collection to play with :-) Here is the layout I made.

Alex Gadji - Dear Santa

I love the rich colors in this collection ♥ I cut out a piece of the Jolly & Joyful paper and used it together with the lovely B-side of the Be Bright as my background.

I have used a lot of Get Happy stickers to add little touches here and there on the layout. Don't you love that deer head??

I love using the pocket cards as they are, without putting anything inside them. The words "nice" and "dear" are made with my favorite mini ABC stickers from Lily Bee. I have used the cute puffy Get Happy alpha stickers for the word "Santa".

And my favorite detail on this layout: The Christmas tree. I decorated the wood veneer tree with some colorful Get Happy enamel dots. It makes me smile :-)

I know pretty much everything from Gossamer Blue is sold out in the Paper Issues store (I am not surprised!!), but more is on its way. Keep your eyes on the shop to grab some before it disappears again :-) And of course, feel free to use my code ALEX20 to get 20% off your entire order.

Now, head over to the blog and start linking up your Making it Merry projects! Gossamer Blue is giving away their gorrrrrgeous December Main Scrapbooking Kit and you don't wanna miss a chance to win it! Good luck!

Happy Holidays my dear scrappy friends!
Sending you all lots and lots of love!

Paper Issues + PageMaps

I am happy to share that Paper Issues is teaming up with PageMaps today! I love PageMaps sketches and I am thrilled to be one of the girl who got to play along. Here is the sketch Becky Fleck sent to me.

And here is my take on it.

Alex Gadji - Cozy the best 

I played with the Get Happy collection by Gossamer Blue.

The photo overlays are from Elle's Studio and the snowflake flair is from October Afternoon Silent Night collection. So is the "get cozy" brad.

I usually don't stay this true to a sketch, but I really liked this one. It was so easy to work with.

Love these pictures of my kiddos from the last winter. I can't wait for the snow to come again. If we can't have sun and summer the all year long, at least bring us the snow! This darkness is killing me...
