A Fancy Pants page for our Admit One issue!

Morning, crafty friends with issues!  Leah l'Orange here, and it's Monday, and I thought I'd make the best of it and put something together for our current issue...

Our theme?  "ADMIT ONE"...  Fancy Pants Designs is our current sponsor, and they are giving away an awesome Everyday Circus collection away to one lucky winner, and I used a bit of that, plus a mish-mosh of other Fancy Pants products on my page...

Seriously, TONS of Fancy Pants stuff on this page, from the buttons and chipboard stars to the arrow to the papers to the scalloped trim strip...  I loved mixing and matching their lines and using up some random bits that have been in my stash.  I swear everything I had coordinated perfectly!

And HEY!  My favorite piece from the August Swag Bag (this little gold clip). 

You TOTALLY want to link up, folks!  The Everyday Circus collection is full of fun and quirky and the colors are amazing!  Lots of bright stuff and STARS (oh my gosh, I LOVE STARS), plus the full page of alphas is PERFECT for journaling, card sentiments or page details and dates and such.  Here's the collection you could win (yes, ALL of it!):

Thank you to Fancy Pants Designs for sponsoring this issue, and to everyone who's linked up already!  There's still plenty of time, because this Link Party closes on August 31st...  Remember, you can link old or new projects that fit the theme, but to be eligible to win this awesome prize, you must link back to the Paper Issues blog.  Easy as pie, right?  Show us whatcha got!

And be sure to check out the BAZILLION new products that are arriving nearly every day in the Paper Issues shop!  You can use this code to save yourself a sweet 20% off everything...

New Crate Paper, Pebbles & Shimelle!

Hi there and happy Sunday to you! Jen here and today I am sharing a layout with some of the newer goodies that are available in the Paper Issues Store. I used a piece of paper from the Shimelle 6x6 pad - new by American Crafts.

There are a ton of great papers in this pad - I especially love the black and white polka dots and map paper too.

The black and white chevron piece is a paper from the new Pebbles Homemade collection 6x6 pad - I wish I had 20 sheets of this! Also you can see the butterflies from Crate Paper's new Notes & Things standout layered stickers.

This is one of my favorites! Hands down. I love embellies. Can't get enough.

You can also see a clipboard peeking out - that is from the Notes & Things ephemera pack. There is even wood veneer in there!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend. If you'd like to get your hands on any of these new items, use code JENCHAPIN in the store to get 20% off your entire order. Happy shopping!

Please help us Welcome Christine Newman AKA List Girl to the Paper Issues Team!

My name is Christine Newman and I'm known in the scrapbooking world mainly as "listgirl".  I've been scrapbooking since 2008.  I love to tell my life stories with photos and pretty papers.  I love scrapbooking because looking back on my memories with the people I love make me so happy and thankful! It’s also such a great artistic outlet for me, combining my favorite hobbies of photography, scrapbooking, computers, internet, and writing. I live in Southern California with my husband Todd and our cat Noodle.  I work full-time as a financial analyst for a high-tech company.  I love to eat, which means I try to workout as often as possible to offset my intake.  I also love to read, knit/crochet, make cards, stamp, sew, and get my hands into anything crafty!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Paper Issues team!
Christine has a love for Pocket Pages and takes some incredible photos for her spreads!  Stop by her Blog or Instagram to see more of these awesome projects.

New Issue: Admit One with Fancy Pants

Row 1: BeckiCorriSherri
Row 2: KathyAlexAmy

Hi everyone! Get your tickets out and get ready for a whole load of fun. Today marks the start of a brand new linky party called Admit One, sponsored by Fancy Pants Designs. Fancy Pants sent the wonderful Everyday Circus collection for the Paper Issues team to work with (see above). Note: clicking on each design team members' name will take you to their blog where you can see their project in more detail.

One lucky person will win the Everyday Circus collection (more on this a bit later).

The design team members' projects have given you some wonderful ideas of what to link up, but here are even more suggestions of what we'd love to see:
  • Use ticket stubs or other event memorabilia.
  • Tell us about your favorite movie or the last movie you saw. Maybe even use a quote from a movie.
  • Have you gone to the circus? Maybe your day-to-day life and routine could be described as a crazy circus (we all have "those" kinds of days, right?)
  • What's your favorite thing to do at a carnival, fair or amusement park? Is it the rides, the games, the food?
  • What was the last concert you went to?
  • Tell us about a winning achievement (ribbon, prize, award, diploma, etc.)
  • Use the number one on your project.
  • Use "Admit One" or "That's the Ticket" as a title.
  • Use Fancy Pants products.
Link up your projects AND link back to Paper Issues between now and August 31st for a chance to win the Everyday Circus collection from Fancy Pants. You don't have to create something new for this link up (although you are certainly welcome to). We love when you share work you've already done too. :)

***Be sure to link back to Paper Issues 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.

You'll find plenty of Fancy Pants products in the Paper Issues store so be sure to check out all of the wonderful collections.

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