Paper Issues Printables and Swag Bag Round Up!

Hello my crafty friends! It's Becky here and today the design team and I are featuring both the Paper Issues Swag Bags and the FREE Paper Issues Printables offered each month! 

I used the March printable for this quick layout of my little doxie Nikki. I literally pulled a few scraps out of my stash, added some wood bits and one of the adorable new Bella fabric bows, stitched around the whole things and BAM! DONE! P.S. I am still trying to master stitching straight...

Lisa Swift pulled bits and pieces from various Swag Bags to put together this darling "happy place" card. That pink wood grain paper is. to. die. for.

Mary-Ann Maldonado put together this awesome layout using the printable from the Paper Issues online crop and the February Swag Bag. I love this photo of her and her boy! 

Jennifer Chapin created this beautiful card using the March Swag Bag and Elle's Studio Cienna stamp. The gold stars in the swag bag are the perfect embellishment for it!


Kelly Feldman used the March printable with some bright and colorful Bella Blvd to scrap photos from one of my favorite places in San Francisco, the world famous Buena Vista. Their Irish Coffee is what legends are made of! 


Meaghen Calder designed this gorgeous layout using some Maggie Holmes paired with April's printable. I love the soft tones in this layout with the pops of bold embellishments.  

Jen Boumis also used the April printable to scrap these photos of a little adventure that involved locking herself out and then breaking into her own home. Personally, I love a woman that knows how to wield a sledge hammer to get shit done! 

Leah l'Orange got crafty with goodies from various Swag Bags and the February printable about a not so great time! I love that Leah documents real life with this one - the good, the bad and the ugly! 

Melissa Elsner used the February Swag Bag for this pretty card! I see that gold sequin heart peaking out from behind the sentiment. Melissa is a gal after my own heart with expressions of love accompanied by gold!

Speaking of "real life" scrapping, Devra Hunt used the April printable to scrap this hilarious photo of a very dire laundry situation. I don't think I am alone when I say that I am not the only one that can sympathize! Can I borrow that wand Devra? 

Shannon used the March printable and the March Swag Bag to put together this sad layout turned happy! I love all the Swag Bag bits and details in this layout! Now I wish that somebody would go make me some coffee!
