Take 5 Tuesday with Paper Issues

There's a new challenge for 2016 that I'll be hosting the first Tuesday of the month over at Paper Issues, and I'm so excited to share it with you today!!  The challenge is open to everyone, and is for scrapbookers, card makers, pocket pagers, and even off the page project makers too. If you are a paper crafter, this challenge is for you! Here’s how it works, each month there will be a list of items to use as inspiration and starting point for your project. From that list, you pick 5 items to use on your project. You can combine your own ideas too, but to play along you must use at least 5 items from the list. You could win a gift card to the Paper Issues store!!

Here is this months inspiration list:
1.   the color blue            
2.   the color green         
3.   the color orange
4.   a snowman or snowflake
5.   die cut
6.   mist or paint
7.   alpha stickers
8.   flair badge or button
9.   a tree
10. a circle
11. sequins
12. title
13. cardstock
14. hand written journaling
15. twine or string (this can be hand stitching, machine stitching, or just as an embellishment)

And here's my layout, using the color blue, a snowflake, die cut, flair badge and circles. 



I started my layout with the snowflake, one of this month's FREE cut files, and then layered bits and pieces of papers, washi tape, die cuts and those cute flair badges. I love this little cluster of goodness!


So how about playing along, you could win one of 2 gift cards to the Paper Issues store!!  Head on over to the Paper Issues blog for more Take 5 Tuesday inspiration from some of the Design Team, and check out what 5 things they all used!
