Happy Times – Paper Issues Blog Hop!

Good morning! I’m so glad you could join us here for the 2nd annual Paper Issues Blog Hop! Did you come here from Leah’s blog? If not, head back to the PI blog and get started for a chance to win some really awesome prizes from our fabulous design team.

So I’m part of the Altered Team and put together this interactive frame using the new Crate Random line, purchased right from the Paper Issues store – check it out cause Cassie is stocking some awesome deals!

 I must say that this is the most perfect paper collection of mismatched patterns I have ever laid eyes upon! Needless to say this project came together – from inspiration to planning to execution – within 1.5 hours of opening my goody box. Love it when that happens!

So the project is housed in a cheap-o Ikea frame and has layers on both the inside of the glass (actually plastic) and the outside. I wanted a place keep my favorite Instagr.am photos and since my fav changes so often, the clip is on the outside for easy change ups.

The paper is mounted on the inside of the plastic and has some paint splatters in white. The title and some other embellies are on the outside in both chipboard and cardstock.

And as you can see from this photo, heat embossing on plastic is not a good idea! It is melted and warbled but still looks kinda cool so I left it as is. I also inked up the title and Polaroid frame behind the photo and added glitter to the moths and Polaroid frame.

To top it off, I added some black trim to hang from. Colorful and fun and makes me smile!

Ink: Colorbox Decades Dye Ink – Bon Voyage Blue, Colorbox Pigment Ink – Frost White, Smooch Spritz – Black Velvet
Patterned Paper, Stickers, Chipboard and Die-cuts – Crate Paper
Stamps – Autumn Leaves
Embossing Powder, Glitter – Clearsnap
Twine – The Twinery
Ribbon – umm, this bow fell off my undies but I like it better here πŸ˜‰
And just for joining in on the hop, you have a chance to win a mini pad of the Crate Random collection! Did I mention I lovelovelovelovelove these papers? To qualify you must leave a comment on this post AND become a follower of this blog. I’ll choose the winner on Monday morning, 9/19!
So that’s all. Hop on over and check out the awesome project the fabulous Lowri McNabb has put together that is totally gonna put me to shame! Later lovers!
