New Layouts & Discount Code & New Products

Hello!  I have a couple of new layouts to share!  The first one is for the Mix it Up challenge at the Paper Issues group.  This month it is to use some acrylic paint somehow on your layout.  Please do join us if you can before the end of the month for a chance to win a gift certificate! Link: GROUP

The second layout uses the new collection in the shop, Simple Stories Sunshine & Happiness.  Love that line.  

Use code Melissa to receive 20% off your total order!  Link to what's new in the shop:  SHOP

Pink Paislee Outfitters is new in the shop as well.   Love their rose gold/copper alpha Thickers:

WeR has a staple board in the shop that I bought. You can staple anywhere on a page.  It's so awesome! I used it all weekend. It comes with small, medium or large staples. You place your paper on the little board, the plastic mold piece over it and it's magnetized, then the stapler - it's super fast and easy, then staple.  Super easy and looks great.  The staples come in colors too.  Get it for 20% off!  

Use code Melissa for 20% off your total order!

I hope you have a great week!  xoxox  Melissa

"Love" - Take Five Challenge at Paper Issues

I played along with Mary Ann's Take Five Challenge at Paper Issues.  From the list I used a circle (the brad), title, journaling, 3 papers and the date.  I put two Silhouette images from the Silhouette store together to make one big cut and backed it some Dear Lizzy and cut out a big flower from Webster's Pages.

I love Mary Ann's Take Five Challenge and made this one as well:

Hope you can stop over and play along with the Take Five Challenge!
