Hello Lily Bee fans! This week we will be focusing on Halloween and Fall projects! I thought it would be fun to show you how well the new We R Family collection works for a Halloween layout.
To begin, I changed my photo to black and white, since a pink zebra stripe cat costume wasn't going to work with the beautiful color palette of the We R Family collection. Once that was done, I decided to use some fun Halloween words and phrases as the base of the layout, leaving some room for the typical Halloween images and my photo.
Here is the end result...
For the border I cut small squares from the patterned paper and layered them around the edge. This is a great way to create a border on a 12x12 layout without using the entire sheet of patterned paper. It adds some dimension to the layout too.
I used the Subway Art concept for my design andI laid out all the words and images in my Silhouette software. Once I liked how it looked, I moved the images off the cutting area and cut just the words. I backed the words with a variety of patterned papers and simply taped them to the back of the cardstock.
After I was finished with the words, I used a piece of Kraft cardstock to cut my Halloween images and added those along with my photo and journling.
I finished it off with a few of the new heart enamel stickers.
Here are a few close-ups for you.
Supplies: We R Family (Home Sweet Home, Family Time, Family Portrait, Family Tree, Mother Daughter, Buddies, Sweet Spot Enamel Stickers), Sweet Shoppe (Embellishment Bundle).
Thanks for visiting today! I hope this has inspired you to pull out your Lily Bee supplies and Halloween photos to create a layout or two this week.
Hello Lily Bee Fans. Patricia here today to share with you how I used inspiration. We are working on this cat and pumpkin puzzle, which isn't an easy puzzle. But I loved the artwork and probably one of the main reasons I bought it. So I decided to use this piece to inspire the design of two cards.
Here are the cards. Can you see how the inspiration piece inspired the cards?
The original artwork is centered and down the middle. That main design was copied on both cards. On this card, the pumpkin and the cut out curlycues and leaves copy the placement of the original piece. The Black twine around the pumpkin anchors the design, just like the black grass in the original piece.
I backed the ghost with vellum so that he was see-through. Love how he came out.
For the next card, the same down the center design, but I used the yellow stickers on either side of that center piece, and then the larger circle sticker at the bottom. The original inspiration has three things down the center: the cat, the pumpkin, and the black grass. The yellow stickers down the middle were inspired by that.
The sentiment three quarters of the way up, off centered a little helps to balance the card.
