Pretty, Pretty Paper


Well hello Monday. It feels like you were just here! These weeks are flying by. And looking at my schedule in July, I think the rest of the month may pass in a blink of the eye! 

I am so excited to leave on Sunday for CHA in Chicago. I love traveling to the trade shows and representing our awesome company. And I won't lie, we have a little too much fun while we are away! Company Dinner & Karaoke Night?? Um yes please!!!

I wanted to show you some GORGEOUS layouts today that were created by Melissa at Scrappy Jedi. If you haven't seen her blog HERE, you are missing out. She has such a clean, beautiful style and such a fun personality! She calls herself a geek but I think she's a pretty cool geek ;)

This first layout uses the Gilded Orchard Stack which is at Jo-Ann Stores now. I can't get enough of this stack! Look how pretty this layout it!

I love all of the little details and love the polka dot background page! So pretty and I think it really shows the style of this stack. Bright, clean, shimmery...just gorgeous!

This next layout uses the Stardust Stack. The gold paint is the perfect accent! And I love how the story of her layout includes Star Wars which works perfectly with this stack.

This last page is created with A Type of Art Stack. The book pages in my stack are already used :) I LOVE the book print and it looks so great on this page.

I love how the prints just pop off the page with the background. Thank you, Melissa, for sharing your fabuous pages with us!

Have you found these stacks at Jo-Anns yet? They should be there so stop by your store or you can by them online HERE

I have a couple winners from last weeks blog comments! Remember, I pick random comments from the blog posts as winners every Monday! Congratulations to:

I can't wait to play. I already have perfect pics and was waiting to see a great sketch!
AND

You and your DH have the same head gear that we wore. DH had on a cap while I wore a cowboy hat, lol. I like The Edumacation Stack because it's doesn't seem too "school-ish" and I can see using it for a variety of layouts.

Email me your addresses and I will get your paper right out to you!! {erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com}

Have a wonderful day!! See you on Wednesday!
