My Wish For You - Wonder Spotlight

There is a spotlight on Crate Paper's new line, Wonder, on the Paper Issues blog today. You check out the projects the other design team members made. They really rocked this line!

One of my favourite things from any Crate Paper line is the die cut ephemera pack. As I was flipping through the Wonder pack, I was struck by all the tags and cards with words like "dream", "stay curious"and "smile". I knew that I wanted to use them to make a layout about things I wish for my son. I ran the die cuts along the page like on a clothes line, wit my photo in the middle. I backed the whole line with the gold triangle vellum.

I tucked a white shipping tag behind another tag with a paper clip, to keep it a little hidden.

I just love those gold corrugated Thickers. I definitely should have bought more than only 1 pack.  

Wonder is definitely up there as one of my favourite Crate lines right now. It is just so whimsical and sweet. These are my four favourite items from the line (1), (2), (3,), and (4).

I Got This Music In My Mind

The new issue at Paper Issues is All About the Face . I chose a photo of Andy looking adorably ridiculous singing his heart out in the car. That boy has a serious love of music, especially pop, and I had to document it in detail. This paper from Maggie Holmes' Confetti line is perfect for the layout's theme and I love the gold glitter triangle.

I wanted to do lots of journaling, so I layered some shipping tags down the page and wrote all about Andy's love "All About the Bass" and Taylor Swift. 

I hand cut some music notes out of patterned paper and scattered them around the page. I used some of my new favourite Thickers to make a bold title quoting the great Taylor Swift. 

You have until August 16th to link up as many projects as you want for the chance to win a $20 gift card to the Paper Issues shop. Check out the Paper Issues blog post for a list of possible themes, but basically it's photos of any kind.
