Fan Feature Friday: It's Hip to be Square #2

Before I get to this week's wonderful edition of Fan Feature Friday, I wanted to let you know about Paper Issues first ever online cropPinkfresh Studio is joining us, along with the sponsors listed above. There will be a whole bunch of challenges and prizes, including goodies from American Crafts as well as two amazing grand prizes — a 6-month Swag Bag subscription and a term on the Paper Issues design team! The crop will take place in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group so be sure to request an invite if you're not already part of the group (click on the link to get to the group).

Without further ado, this week's Fan Feature Friday showcases projects from the second week of It's Hip to be Square, sponsored by A Flair for Buttons. Every Friday, we showcase projects linked to our current issue, so be sure to share your projects for a chance to be featured.

Let's take a look at the projects that caught our eye this week...

1. Anna's amazing page, not only features a fresh grid design with a fabulous use of white space, but take a look at how she filled one of the squares with letters.

2. Angi admits to being a wee bit addicted to Instagram, but she uses it as a way to document her day-to-day happenings. She did an amazing job mixing squares of various patterned papers with square photos!

3. Tracy's super-sized card features colorful Lego blocks created with squares and punched circles. Such a creative approach to this theme, Tracy!

4. Hazel's pocket page is full of beautiful squares, whether they be patterned paper, whimsical die cut frames or the pockets themselves. I love the fresh look of the white die cuts filled with journaling! 

5. Emily's page showcases a number of circles, but take a closer look and you'll notice she used a square photo and two square embellishments. Even her handwritten journaling block has a square shape to it.

6. Kelly's page is a total win-win with a fun title, silly photos and four square grid design. I love how she used one of the squares, not only for her journaling, but the title as well. Look how pretty the shiny gold dividers are between the squares!

7. The squares on Christy's sweet page are filled with squares cut from a transparency. I'm loving the little critters  and vertical title work! 

8. Kelly went with a four-square grid design, adding in plenty of distressing, inking, square photos and elements to go along with these photos of her dog in motion.

9. Wendy linked up this cheerful stamped card. I love the touches of gold and framed sentiment.

10. Heather's awesome angled grid design was inspired by a Rubik's cube she found on Pinterest.
