Paper Issues: October Free Printables

Hi there! Have you seen the October FREE printable from Paper Issues?

I fell for the kraft one and made this layout about something I really enjoy doing during fall. I am not a big fan of fall otherwise, but there is something special about having a hot, delicious cup of tee when it is getting cold and dark outside. 

Alex Gadji - Tea Time

I have used the gorgeous Pink Paislee Cedar Lane collection. I chose to add a big piece of vellum to give the page a softer look. I have attached the vellum with 3d dots.

When you wish to scrap...

...I obey.

Alex Gadji - When you wish to scrap

You can't say no to that, right? Especially not when someone covered with chicken pox asks you :-) I have made this layout for Design in Papers using Dear Lizzy Documentary collection from American Crafts.

I don't know what I am going to do when I run out of these Lily Bee mini alphas!! Cry, for sure... They are my all time favorites!

Paper Issues: Scrap Lift Sunday

Ready for another Scrap Lift Sunday challenge from Paper Issues? This time we are lifting a layout from my sweet friend Sherri Funk. Head over to Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group to see more and to play along for a chance to win a gift card to the PI store.

Here is my take on the challenge.

Alex Gadji - Oh so cute

I have mixed the new Pink Paislee Memorandum collection with the bits and pieces from PP Atlas and PP Citrus Bliss.

The big banner behind my photo is from the older PP Hey Kid collection. I believe there are still a few available HERE in the Paper Issues shop if you'd want some.

Ugh. For some reason, this one was really hard to photograph. I can't help but thinking that it looks so much better in real life. I hate it when that happens...

I hope to see you over in our Facebook group!
Have fun with this one!

A Boy's Room

A boy's room. All kind of different vehicles all over the place. Every. Single. Day. 90% of all the cars he has, his older sister has had too. But she was never playing with them. Never. We've tried to encourage her, but nope. Zero interest. I find it very interesting... And strange :-)

Alex Gadji - Boy's Room

I made this layout for Design in Papers using the Wonder collection from Crate Paper.
