I’ve got Issues

Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Paper Issues Blog Hop!

You probably got here from Mary-Ann Maldonado‘s blog but if you stumbled across my blog go the Paper Issues Blog to start!


I started my layout by choosing two patterned papers. I then trimmed one of my three photos down to 4×4 for the center of the page. I used lots of pieces from the swag bag to embellish my layout. I used the Tombow foam tape to raise a few of the pieces to add dimension to the layout. I finished the layout with some golden stars and stitching.  Check out some details of the layout below. paperissues-2 paperissues-3
