Product Spotlight: Shimelle Little by Little

Hello! Becky here today to share how the Paper Issue Design Team used the Little by Little line by Shimelle for American Crafts

I used the EK Success Curvy Cutter (hollar back 2005!) and some chipboard to make a "sunburst-esqu" shaped stencil that I traced onto several different patterned papers from Shimelle's line for this layout! I used all kinds of bits including the wood buttons, ephemera die cuts, sticker book, mini puffy stickers and the Magic Thickers to embellish. Those Thicker though? Love them!

I love how Amy used the grid pattern paper, Funny Bunny, for her background. The slanted pattern paper, the journaling along the top edge and the clusters of embellishments all make this layout so much fun!


 This layout from Ann is almost too much awesome! Those gigantic letters, the splatters, the machine stitching, the photo strip - I adore everything about this layout!

Elodie designed this totally HAPPY layout  with several fun patterned papers, ephemera die cuts, mini puffy stickers, the Hello Joy Phrase Thickers and the Wood Buttons. Those adorable animal puffy stickers peeking out of the patterned paper strips are my favorite!

This stunning layout designed by Kelly with the Bear Hug patterned paper and the Scalloped Background Cut File that you can find FREE in the Paper Issues shop RIGHT HERE is ahhhhh-mazing! Also, journaling strips always call to me! I love this layout so hard! 

Our Pocket Page Guru is at it again this month! Kristie designed this fun spread with all kinds of bits and pieces from the Little by Little line! Be sure to check out her process video on You Tube!

Pol went BIG & BOLD with this awesome layout! Her giant title is a quick and easy way to take up white space on a layout! With some strategically placed die cuts from the ephemera pack and a thin border of patterned paper this layout is awesome!

Rachel also used one of the FREE Cut Files from the Paper Issues shop on this bright & bold layout! This photo of her boys playing at the park on a rare sunny January day is just too stinking cute!

Renee pulled out all the tricks with the embellishments on this one! Her embellishment clusters lead your eye right to her photos! Those little animals peeking out to take a look at her photos are everything!

Ali used a FREE cut file from the Paper Issues shop. This has been a SUPER popular cut file and it is a great one to use with some of those scraps that you have laying around! Ali's hand stitched clouds are also to die for!

I adore what Stacie did with the banners on this layout! What a great idea! This photo of her son is too funny and pairs perfectly with that "I am what I am," die cut from the ephemera pack!

This festive spring layout designed by Cat has tons of little details - from the Easter grass to the peek-a-boo bunny - this is a super fun page that puts me in the mood for Spring!

Holy hand stitching Batman! This layout from Devra is truly a labor of love! That "perfect day" bear sticker is also one of my favorite bits from this line! I am hoarding it! Such a great page!

 Last, but by no means least, Michelle has designed this gorgeous layout featuring her equally gorgeous daughter! I feel like this layout would make the perfect Scrap Lift Sunday inspiration page! I totally love how she used the chevron patterns along the edges of her page - it adds a 3D effect!

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look today! I hope that you play along with this Product Spotlight challenge to show us how you used Shimelle's new line, Little by Little. You can find this challenge along with all of the February challenges RIGHT HERE
