There's a product spotlight going on over on the Paper Issues Blog! I happen to love these and this time I was able to play along. Anytime I can use Crate Paper, I pretty much do! This spotlight is using Crate Paper's Snow & Cocoa collection. I've made two or three layouts with this collection already, and I think I'm going to use it for most of my December Documentation. I simply love it! 


I made a cutfile for this one (the trees) and it is free to you here. Here are a few close ups:

It's Swag Bag Sunday over at Paper Issues! You may have seen my Swag Bag opening on Facebook (it was my first live FB video).  As soon as I finished the video, I found a photo (taken just that day) and made a layout! It was that inspirational!  Here's the layout:


Nearly everything you see here comes from the Swag Bag! I even used the glassine bag that it came in as part of my layers behind the photo and card. I added the orange background paper and a couple chipboard elements and flair. Most of that came from Cocoa Vanilla Studio's Love Always collection.

It's Mix It Up Monday: November Edition on the Paper Issues Blog today!  This month I challenge you to use some inks and/or stamps. Here's my take on the challenge:


I made a background paper (see all that yellow?) using a yellow ink pad, some water, and the packaging technique.  Next I stamped numbers all over it! It's a perfect match with Cocoa Vanilla's Make a Wish collection and for this layout about Bea's seventh birthday.  Here's a close up of the layer that I made.


Grab some Cocoa Vanilla, or any of your paper needs in the Paper Issues Store today. Don't forget to use the code 'orangegearle' for 20% off your purchase!
