Pawsitively Pets! A New Challenge!

Hello! Melissa here!  We have a new challenge category at Paper IssuesIt's all about scrapping your pets or animals in your life! The challenge for this first month is simple - use something new to you, and also something you've been hoarding.  On the layout above, the new-to-me portion was the Crate Paper Cool Kid from the store.  The thing I had been hoarding is washi tape, so I used a couple of different ones :)  I used a free cut file from Paper Issues.  Grab it and more files Here.

The Design Team has been fabulous this month in creating inspiration for you! Let's get right to it!

This lovely page is from our talented Aussie designer Amanda Baldwin.  I spot some Pink Fresh there!  So fun for us to see her son feeding a kangaroo :)

Lisa Swift always has such feasts for the eyes with so many lovely things to see! Love her pages!  I really love the colors here - all my favorites - and that sweet kitty.

Design team member Stacie Ebnet Dietz made an awesome page using her Amy Tangerine stamps available in the store on a transparency and shows you more detail on her blog.  Such a perfect zoo page!  

I love this page by Melanie Funke using Fancy Pants so much!  It makes my heart swell to look at it!  A good reminder to capture the details we love of our pets.  I love that sparkly title, too.  Thanks Melanie!

Becky Stidham's sweet page about adorable Brutus is just too cute!!  I love it.  She's using the new Doodlebug collection available in the store.  I love this design!  Thanks Becky!

Our Heather Shank made this beautiful page about her sweet new kitten!  Love the yellow paint and the touches of pink!  Gorgeous!  Thanks Heather!

Rachel O'Neal made this super fun page about her son's visit with the penguins! I love these adorable pictures!  She used the new Cool Kid collection from Crate Paper available in the store.

Elodie Lusseau made this happy page with this awesome picture of her daughter and pup - so cute!  She used the new Millie & June collection from Fancy Pants!  Terrific!

Mary-Ann Maldonado treated us with this oh-so-adorable kitty page! Love it!  That new Doodlebug collection is irresistible!  Love her polka-dot kitty and banner, too.  Thanks Mary-Ann!

Carolyn Johnson framed up this fun page with the cutest DD and pony ever!  Love that title, too!  Very cute!
