New Issue: It's Raining Cats and Dogs

Row 1: BeckiCorriJess
Row 2: KellyMarthaSherri

This new issue may be called It's Raining Cats and Dogs, but it's not just about fur babies of the feline and canine variety. We have plenty of ideas for projects you can link up. Plus, there are multiple prizes involved. That's right! Three of them to be exact, all courtesy of our fabulous sponsor, Simple Stories.

Six of our design team members created beautiful projects to inspire you (see above), all made with product from Simple Stories cat, dog or summer Sn@p sets.

Here are some ideas for the types of projects you could link up, but as always, we love to see you think outside of the box too.
  • Share a project about your pet (whether it be a dog, cat or another type of critter).
  • Show us your wild side with a project about a trip to the zoo or Animal Kingdom. Maybe you've even been lucky enough to go on a safari.
  • Have you ever hosted, or gone to, an animal-themed party?
  • Use raindrop, umbrella or rain boot embellishments.
  • Share a project about spring or summer.
  • Use Simple Stories products.
Link your projects (new or old, we're not picky) and link back to Paper Issues between now and May 25th for a chance to win one of three prize packs (a package of Insta-squares & Pieces and a package of coordinating stickers from one of Simple Stories Sn@p sets). We'll choose a winner from all of the cat-related link ups to receive a cat prize pack, one from all of the dog-related projects to receive a dog prize pack (shown below), and one winner from all of the link ups that fall into the "other" category to receive a summer prize pack.

***Please link your project(s) back to Paper Issues in some way to be eligible for the prize.***

Your project may even be featured on the Paper Issues Facebook pageInstagramPinterest and/or right here on the Paper Issues blog.

Here are the links to Simple Stories' product and social media sites. Please be sure to visit and tell them Paper Issues sent you.
