Welcome to our new issue, Gettin' the Scoop on the Sweet Days of Summer. It's going to be a sizzling hot one!

A big thank you to Bella Blvd., our sponsor, for providing the prize for this issue (more on that later).

The design team shared some super fun projects (see above) for this issue, all made with product provided by Bella Blvd., but here are even more ideas to get you thinking:
  • Show us anything you've made having to with summer activities (swimming, running under the sprinkler, how you cool down and escape the heat, etc.)
  • What's on your summer bucket list?
  • Tell us about a vacation you've taken.
  • What's your favorite ice cream flavor (or other favorite sweet)?
  • Do you celebrate any summer birthdays in your family?
  • Try your hand at gelatos (the mixed media kind, although the dessert version is great too!)
  • Have you gone to a barbecue or summer block party?
  • How about sharing a project about a visit to a carnival or amusement park. What's your favorite ride?
  • Use flip flops and other summer elements as embellishments.
  • Tell us the latest news/scoop by sharing your pocket pages.
  • Use Bella Blvd. products.
Link up your projects AND link back to Paper Issues between now and July 20th for a chance to win a Summer Squeeze collection kit from Bella Blvd. You don't have to create something new for this link up (although you are certainly welcome to). We love when you share work you've already done too. :)

***Please link your project(s) back to Paper Issues in some way to be eligible for the prize.***

Your project may even be featured on the Paper Issues Facebook pageInstagramPinterest and/or right here on the Paper Issues blog.

Here are the links to Bella Blvd.'s product and social media sites. Please be sure to visit and tell them Paper Issues sent you.
