Happy Sunday! We are lifting the fabulous Devra today. You can find her original layout here! I twisted the design a little bit and added strips of paper at the top as well as the bottom. For my layout I used Elle's Studio Note Worthy. Click here to find Elle's in the Paper Issues store.

This lift was so fun to play along with. I know you'll love it too! When you're done don't forget to share it with us in our Facebook group! We love to see what you create! XOXO

Dads Are Rad!

Father's Day is right around the corner so in honor of all the awesome dads out there we have the Dads Are Rad challenge at Paper Issues this month. Just create a layout about a dad who has a special meaning in your life. It can be a father, husband, grandfather, uncle, a mentor, etc!

I chose to document my wonderful husband and father of our boys. He loves us and takes cares of us and gets to travel to some pretty awesome places while doing so. In May, he went to Germany on business and took some great photos. I love that I can document his work life too. Crate Paper Here + There was the perfect collection for it. You can find the 12x12 patterned paper {called City Views} and the calendars in the Paper Issues store.

I hope I've inspired you to think about the special man in your life. Check out the challenge thread here and then add your layout to it when you are done! You have until July 1st to play along for a chance to win a PI gift card! XOXO

Splish Splash

Splish splash! It's Sunday funday and I hope scraplifting is on your agenda! We are lifting Becky today and her layout for May's Girls Rule the World Challenge. See her original layout here. I mixed it up a bit and used the Whitecaps cut file for waves instead of strips of paper. This fun summer collection is Poolside from Fancy Pants.

Thanks for stopping by today! Check out all the Paper Issues challenges for June here! XOXO

Keep It Sketchy

Bring on the sunshine because the weekend is here! And if you are into sunshine, this month's sketch at Paper Issues is for you! Check it out:

I used the Sunburst background cut file along with Crate Paper's Wild Heart collection! The Electric patterned paper is a perfect mix of yellow and pink which reminded me of a beautiful sunset. Check out Wild Heart here and save 20% with the code RACHEL! XOXO

Free File Free-For-All

I'm so glad we have this challenge each month at Paper Issues! I'd been itching to use this Let's Go cut file for some time now and our recent trip to the Omaha Zoo was perfect for it! The boys and I were so excited for this day. I used the Crate Paper Wild Heart collection along with it.

Want to see more cut file inspiration?! Check out this month's challenge thread to see what everyone else is creating! XOXO

Striped Sensation!

Fancy Pants made an awesome summer collection that I love. It's called Poolside! We spend a lot of time around the water in the summer and I had to have this collection. I used it for the Striped Sensation challenge at Paper Issues. So for this challenge you can use as many photos and embellishments as you care to, so long as your backgrounds are striped. Whether you create it with paint, ink, patterned paper or sequins; show us those lines! Can't wait to see your layout! XOXO
