Paper Issues: DL Documentary spotlight

We are spotlighting the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection on the Paper Issues blog today. Here is the layout I made:

Alex Gadji - Love your style

Love the bold colors and patterns of this collection. The black in the big flower paper inspired me to go for a black and white photo. Something I don't do often...

That's me and the little man at his preschool summer party. Photos with red details are perfect for this collection...

Paper Issues: Cut It Up Saturday

Hi there! You know what day it is? It is a Cut It Up Saturday! Yes! My sweet friend Danielle has designed this new cut file for Paper Issues which you can grab for free in the PI store.

The theme of the file is "back to school", but I decided to go with a little.. um.. different approach.

Alex Gadji - Time for wine

Yes, I love wine...

Like, a lot! :D

The connected stars are my favorite part of this cut file. I enlarged them and outlined them in the Silhouette Studio. I cut the outer ones from patterned paper and the inner ones from plain white cardstock.

Have fun!

I've had these cute wooden borders from Shimelle's True Stories lying around for some time now. It was about time to use them!

Alex Gadji - Yum

I combined them with Dear Lizzy Fine & Dandy washi strips (another thing I almost never use..). I like the way they look together.

What I like the most about this layout, is how fast it came together! That's my favorite kind :-)

Have a lovely day!

Paper Issues: September Sketch

So, have you seen the inspiring September sketch over at the Paper Issues blog? The sketch is based on a layout made by Lisa Dickinson for Elle's Studio.

I flipped the sketch and used two smaller photos on top of a 6x4 card.

Alex Gadji - Together

I have used Amy Tangerine's new Finders Keepers collection from American Crafts. I love how it matches my photos. Btw, that's me and the love of my life on our way to a friend's wedding. He is pretty darn handsome if you ask me! ;-)
