Paper Issues:December Try It Tuesday!





Hi Paper Loving Friends!

Can you believe it's the last month of the year already?!!
Let's make it a December to Remember with this month's edition of Paper Issues


This month let's use up all those ends of papers, paper strips and even the printed barcode strips of papers to create with! 

Suggested Ideas include:

 Create a shape such as a star, heart, or snowflake with your paper strips
 Stitch your strips together then die cut out a shape or tag
 Paper piece a cut file shape with strips
 Create multiple borders or frames  
Make a diagonal feature of strips in your background

I'm sure you'll have tons of creative uses for these strips! 

I had so much fun creating for this challenge, here's what I came up with,

"JOY"


JOY indeed! Snow much fun! 
I've used the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio: December Days collection for my sweet Christmas page.
I had quite a few off cuts and left over papers from the 6 x 6 Paper Pad to use up from this line.
 As I was creating a Christmas layout, I took inspiration from my background patterned paper Ornaments, and decided to create my own paper strip Christmas trees! SO cool!
I just LOVE how effective the paper strip trees look! 
Here's a closer look for you.....


To add to the impact, I decorated my trees with sequin stars, Die Cut ornaments, and even popped a few presents (Puffy Stickers) under the trees. 


How awesome is that Chipboard Frame too?! Loving it all!
I hope my layout has inspired you to get creating but before you do, 
check out some more inspiration from our incredible team here.
