blog hop time!





Hi there!  It is the 29th of the month which means that it is time for the Social [Media] Butterflies Blog Hop again!  You have probably come here via Jen's blog, but if you haven't stopped there, be sure to go back and visit.   This month we are using printables by paislee press.  Liz has designed so many different collections that have a simple and minimalist feel to them... I had a hard time choosing which collection to pick.  I finally decided to go with the On My Desk journaling cards.  

Here is the layout that I came up with...

These things make me happy:

As I started working with the paislee press journaling cards, I decided to challenge myself to not use any patterned paper aside from the background sheet.  All of my little bits of patterned papers came from the set of On My Desk journaling cards.   I am so pleased at how it turned out.  Here are some up close peeks...







I absolutely adore Liz's minimalistic style.  I love white space on my layouts.  I love to cluster bits of embellishments.  So this was right up my alley!

Be sure to leave a comment to be entered for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to paislee press.  Next up in our blog hop order is Kristin.  Stop by to see what she has made... and remember the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win that gift certificate!

    1. Hi Kaly, thanks for the love. The containers are berry baskets and latte bowls from anthropologie. Not the cheapest storage solution, but I LOVE the look!
