remember the mishief :: spotlight on shine

This little girl is a sweet as they come. She loves to cuddle and dole out hugs, curl up on the couch with each of us and has a quick, dimpled smile. She also has quite the mischievous side (I'll credit her brothers) and is so proud of herself when she pulls off a new antic. So, when I walked into the kitchen one day this past summer and found her sitting on the kitchen counter, after using the drawers underneath as stairs, I had to snap a photo to capture this side. Priceless.

The Paper Issues design team is spotlighting the Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper Shine collection on the blog today and this layout uses nearly all products from the line. I love that is a great mix of playful and classic patterns and elements. You can grab some for yourself in the Paper Issues store at 20% off using code: JENBOOM


love us :: cut file saturday

There is a brand new, FREE cut file up on the Paper Issues blog today. I was so excited to see the design this month and to document a couple of my new favorite autumn photos.

A few weeks ago, my husband was working on and around local train tracks that are no longer in use. We met up with him for a few minutes so that the kids could see their Baba at work and managed to grab a couple of cute iPhone photos. Now I am certain this is where I want to have our family portraits taken next year!

I used mainly two fall collections for the layout, Pebbles Harvest and Photo Play Autumn Day, along with Swag Bag bits, of course, and the amazing Shimelle foam Thickers!

nature girl :: pinspire me

There is a brand new Pinspire Me board up on the Paper Issues blog today! Play along in our Facebook {Friends and Fans} group for a chance to win a Pinspired Swag Bag.

I was Pinspired by the photo of the hands (top row) and the colors of the beautiful sunset (bottom row). As soon as I saw this board I ran to the computer to print out this photo of Amalia and her little backyard nature collection that I snapped last month. She is fascinated by the foliage on our property, particularly the various berry bushes. Nearly everyday she will create a little collection to admire on this wood table.This is a memory I want to keep. Her little hand, her love of nature and her sweet innocence.

I used a mix of every current fall line I have on hand to create my layers and embellishments: Photo Play Autumn Day paper and cardstock stickers, Imaginisce Give Thanks chip ephemera, a Pebbles Harvest card cut from a 12x12 sheet, Pink Paislee Cedar Lane embellishments and I even snuck in a Project Live Everyday core kit card (A for Adventure) and a few Swag Bag bits!

wicked cute :: halloween 2015

Happy Halloween week! This year we have two pirates, Captain Jakes to be exact, and a tiny Tinkerbell. Last weekend was our neighborhood block party and all of the kids go in costume. It was the perfect opportunity to get photos early and not have to worry about rushing them on the actual holiday. Look! All three children standing still and smiling! That's a Halloween treat for certain.

I'm playing along with the Paper Issues design team today, spotlighting the Crate Paper After Dark collection. It's such a fun, seasonal selection with vintage touches and little bits of aqua and lavender to complement the traditional orange, black and white.

I had so much fun working with the After Dark accent stickers, ephemera pack and the 6x6 paper pad. The background paper is actually from the Crate Paper Wonder line and worked so well! Add in a handmade Paper Issues jack o' lantern PaperPOP and this Halloween is a wrap.

mommy & me :: paper issues + cedar lane

Today on the Paper Issues blog, the design team girls are showcasing the gorgeous Pink Paislee Cedar Lane collection. I always, always love autumn papers and products. They are my favorite collections for my favorite time of the year. This one got me right away. The colors are unexpected but, so perfect. I adore the wood grains, the pinks, the bits of gold and aqua. It is just SO pretty. SWOON.

I scrapped two of my favorite photos from the first Mommy & Me field trip with Amalia just last week. The layout is completely made up of Cedar Lane 12x12 paper, 6x6 paper, the ephemera pack, puffy stickers and the clear word stickers. My only addition was the printed journaling. It came together in about 20 minutes!

You can still grab Cedar Lane for yourself - and at 20% off! - in the Paper Issues shop using code: JENBOOM

Fan-atics :: New Issue Monday!

It's New Issue Monday at Paper Issues and the theme this month is "Fan-atics!" I'm playing along with a fan mom layout of our oldest playing fall baseball. Head on over to the Paper Issues blog to see how you can play along...this issue covers sports, Halloween and SO much more. Everyone can play and be in the running for a Paper Issues gift certificate!

The team is the KC Royals this season so, I played up the blues, along with orange accents just because I always love this color combination!

The border paper is from Fancy Pants Making Waves, the stripe is by October Afternoon Treasure Map. I used a couple of Project Life journaling cards, several bits from Paper Issues Swag Bags, a Color Cast Designs acrylic word cut, a piece of Feed Your Craft flair and finished it all off with a Silhouette cut title and stars.

tv, i love you...

Today I'm playing with Paper Issues' FREE September Printable. Every month, Paper Issues offers a free sheet of themed 3x4 cards, ready to print. This month they celebrate the return of the fall TV line up.

I snapped this photo of our kids as they watched a cartoon together on our tablet. We were visiting family and they were having a bit of down time. Together and quiet. I'll take it!

I used a huge variety of product on this layout, where I normally prefer to stick with just a line or two. The colors played so nicely together that I ran with it!

Background: OA Treasure Map
Patterned layers: EP Jack & Jill
Tag/number 3: FP Making Waves
Project Life card, Midnight Edition
Embellishments: Paper Issues Swag Bags
