Playing with Paper: Buy this Book!

This post is a review, testimonial, plug, or whatever you want to call it for the book Playing with Paper by Angelia Wigginton.  I've been mentioning it in a lot of my posts, so I thought I'd devote a post to the book.
Here's the book itself.  I wonder if I'm violating copyright laws by posting pics of it.  If there are any complaints, I'll delete this post.
And here are some of the layouts I've done that were inspired by the book, along with the picture from the book that inspired each.  There are many, many I've yet to try.  Links included to my original layout posts, in case you want more info and missed the earlier posts.

Chicago!  For original layout post, just scroll down--I posted it earlier today.

My Orange Beach LO.  I loved the big picture with the "sloppy" sewing sewing and buttons on the edge.  The original post HERE.

My New Orleans/Pat O'Briens Hurricane LO.  I thought the swirls created a party-like feeling.  Original post HERE.

LO from Gul Islands National Seashore.  I liked the block of photos and the cluster of embellishments on the black cs.  Original post HERE.

The book's layout was the view of NYC, but it worked great for my views from Niagara Falls.  My daughter, Jessy, was even pictured with the big binoculars, which triggered the idea to do the LO.  Original post HERE.

Nick's first day of school.  I liked all the curved lines and the black flourishes.  Original post HERE.
This is the last of the layouts inspired by this book SO FAR, but I'm sure I'll be doing more.


  1. Molly--you have been an inspiration for me for some time now. I have a surprise for you on my blog!
