Inspired by…

A Photo Challenge.


We posted this photo challenge when we welcomed September. Well now we are waiting for October so that I thought it would be fun to share the photos that we took! If you completed the challenge, share them with us! You can find us on Facebook and Instagram the_paperie or email us the photos and we will post them for you!

Here’s the photo challenge list;


I incorporated my photos into a Project Life® spread in my album.


Last week, I told you about the Project Life® App that I use regularly to resize my photos. For this week’s layout, I used another favourite, A Beautiful Mess ABM. This app allows me to add the text to the photos. Lots of fun features here!



Have fun! I hope you are all inspired by something wonderful this week!


Make Mine Mixed Media – with Cathie Reed

Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely summer and are ready to make a creative mess with me on September 29. We will be playing with the Prima Adhesive Rub-Ons. I’ll share some interesting ways to use them and show you how I used them on my layout.

Here’s a look at one of the layouts we will be making in class.

Happy Stamping!

Mojo Monday – September 26

Happy Monday all!

This week’s Mojo Monday challenge is to create something inspired by the following layout that I saw in my Pinterest feed this morning:


I especially loved the brush script font used for the title, and I already have mine printed and ready to cut out.  There are a few different ways you can do this of course; you can print it and cut it out, you can cut it out using silhouette or Cricut, or you can use a brush tipped marker or pen and use your own hand writing.  I will be back later this week to show you what I came up with.

thanks for looking!
