Product Spotlight *Kiss, Kiss*

Valentine's Day may have come and gone, but if you're anything like me you're always just a bit behind when it comes to holiday scrapping.  I have a hard time pre-scrapping photos before the holiday has come and gone.  I still have Halloween photos and papers laying around begging to be scrapped. I'm bad.  When it comes to pink, pastels, and love, however I don't need four months to put something together, and neither do a few of my Paper Issues friends.  We all worked with the Crate Paper Kiss, Kiss collection to create a few heartfelt projects to share with you.

Orange knocked it out of the park by putting to good use several pieces of the ephemera pack.
 Layering here and there really gave her layout dimension, her spatters keep your eye moving, creating a nice flow to her design.

Jen Chapin created these sweet trio of cards.  
 I particularly love how she used the Candy Heart brads on that first one with the little Bingo card.  And did you notice on the 2nd one she mounted the die cut on a mini shaker?  Great idea.

Michelle used a great grid design and filled 3 of the 4 boxes with fun elements from the collection.
Those little paint chips were a big hit, and I love how she pulled just a bit of red jute through that one quoted tag, perfect.

I decided to play around with an 8.5x11 format for this one.
I designed everything about this layout around that gorgeous layered tag, and the 6x12 sticker sheet.  I don't know what it is about ampersands but I have a serious love affair with them.  They don't have to mean anything, in my opinion, they are just a fun way to add a little spark to any project.  This extra large one needed to take center stage, so I popped it up using some foam pop dots.  Those glitter stickers are hoard worthy, but so perfect on a page about the one I love.

Mary Ann's layout showcases a little bit of all the elements that make this collection so great.  
Her mix of stickers, ephemera, and die cuts all layered so perfectly compliment that sweet photo of her son perfectly.

There are still several elements from the Kiss, Kiss collection available right here in the shop.  A complementary collection is the WeR Memory Keepers Love Notes collection. You can see that one here in the shop.

Still have some great Valentine's Day themed projects in mind?  Paper Issues has everything you need to get those ideas down on paper.
Happy Scrapping friends!
