I have Paper Issues & my favorites


Hello! You are most likely here for the Paper Issues blog hop. Our focus for the hop is FAVORITES. How fun, right?!

This card was made using my "favorites." What are they, you might ask? Here is a list of what I reach for first when I can.
• Kraft paper
• My Mind's Eye paper (I just adore this company on so many levels!)
The color blue and a neutral
• Silhouettes, cameos, anything in this style
• Buttons!!
• Rub-ons ("Smile" is a rub-on)
• Ribbons—especially crinkly, seam-binding ribbons
• Trinket pins. I hoard these and just have to have them in all sizes, shapes and styles.

I also applied a favorite technique, which is layering. I can't remember the last thing I made that didn't use a foam dot somewhere on the project. And I used my Nestabilities dies, which is a go-to technique for me, as well.


If you are doing the Paper Issues Blog Hop, here is the order for the team I'm on:

Chris Aiton
Gretchen McElveen
Mandy Starner
Lowri McNabb
Cassie Box
Zarah S Peterson
Diana Fisher (YOU ARE HERE)

All hops end with the Paper Issues main blog. We'd love to see you leave a comment there so you have a chance to win a fabulous prize!

Of course, I would love it if you leave a comment here, too! :)

Thanks for visiting today! I'm really in love with this card. I may actually keep it and display it somewhere in my house. See what happens when you make something from your favorite things?!

You and I should get together and craft. We'd have to bring SO little, since we seem to share faces.
...I only WISH the result came out this amazing for me, though. It is STUNNIIIIING!!
