Pinspire Me!

New Issue at Paper Issues

So there is a new issue up at Paper Issues title Gleam Catcher!  Play along for a chance to win a gift certificate and a chance to be showcased on their blog. One of the suggested themes is to use something shiny, so I used gold vellum, glittered title, glittered ribbon, glittered photo mat and + embellies.  Swished some watered down Dylusions mist in green and blue around as well!

Here are the different ways you can enter your layouts:

Suggested theme ideas: Anything shiny (glitter, mist, sequins, silver, gold, metals, etc.), use stars as embellishments or the word “star” in your title, dream catchers, Southwestern design, baseball, photos that show the catch lights (gleam) in the subject’s eye, 4th of July/patriotic

Here is a link to the new issue:  NEW ISSUE
