This is Us with Paper Issues

Hello friends!

Today I'm sharing a project made for the February Paper Issues Swanky Swatches Challenge. This month's turquoise,  purple, and pink color palette is absolutely amazing and goes perfectly with the Jillibean Soup Garden Harvest collection.

For this project, I combined the FREE Love You This Much and Bloom cut files from PI to create a base for my photo. I used the X's from the cut file and laid them at an angle down the page. This was followed with the florals cut in different sizes using purple patterned paper. 

I used foam squares to lift the picture off of the page and then embellished with the hearts from the cut file as well as die cuts from the collection.

Foam hearts and enamel dots were also added for more color. 

Journaling was next and I followed that with a hand-drawn border to tie everything together.

I hope you're inspired by the color palette to create something amazing!! Use the inspiration for any paper projects - scrapbook pages, TN's, pocket pages, cards, you name it! Be sure to share your project in the Paper Issues Friends & Fans Facebook group for your chance to win one of two monthly gift cards from Paper Issues.
