It is Monday once again and that means that we're introducing a new theme for the week! This week we are focusing on Spring and the upcoming Easter holiday.
While Mr. Groundhog told us we'd have an early Spring I think that some of us are having a few doubts.
We will start off today with a happy layout from brand-new Design Team member, Adrienne Alvis. When this showed up in my inbox in preparation for our post today I was even more excited that she's now a part of our team. It's incredible, don't you think?
I really like how Adrienne used both the negative and positive image of her diecuts. What a great way to add a lot of detail and texture and bring focus to her photograph.
Adrienne shares, "Nothing says, 'it's Spring' to me more than mud puddles! I was inspired by this fun photo of my daughter breaking in her new rubber boots to use my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a puddle and some splashes using the Pinwheel Lemonade Stand paper. I layered some Sweet Shoppe Jelly Bean paper underneath and popped out a few splashes using some dimensional adhesive. I used a few of the adorable Spring-themed chipboard stickers from the Pinwheel Collection adn embellished soem Chit Chat stickers on top of them. I used my Cameo to cut out a few extra clouds to emphasize my theme and sewed them directly onto my page. I'm so excited to be sharing my creations with you here at Lily Bee!"
Here are a few detail shots of her layout:
I love how she pays such close attention to little details like layering and stitching. Seeminly simple things that add extra pizzazz to her layout.
Supplies: Pinwheel Collection ( Sprinklers Paper, Lemonade Stand Paper, Chipboard Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Chit Chat Stickers, Label Stickers), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Jelly Bean Paper, Label Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers, Circle and Tag Stickers).
We are so happy to have Adrienne as part of the team!
For our Spring/Easter feature this week I decided to create a little Easter decor for my home.
Just like Adrienne did, I put my Silhouette Cameo to work to cut out these cute projects using a mix of the new Lily Bee Pinwheel and Sweet Shoppe collections.
First I created the Easter Bunny/Carrot garland by cutting out the shapes on my Cameo and taping twine to the back of the shapes.
The second thing I created were these little treat bags:
These are a quick and simple project that you can make and fill with little candies or a note for a loved one. I cut the bag from white cardstock and embellished with Lily Bee paper and stickers.
I also decorated a plain white gift bag by using one of the extra bunny die cuts left over from my garland. I added a Pinwheel label sticker and some Persnickety alpha stickers to finish it off.
Supplies: Pinwheel Collection (Apricot Tree, Sprinklers, Ice Cream Truck, Circle & Tag Stickers, Label Stickers), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Lemon Drop, Lollipop, CIrcle & Tag Stickers), Persnickety Collection (ABC Stickers).
I hope that you've enjoyed our projects today and that they help to get you into a Spring/Easter mood. Maybe the weather will start to cooperate with us and it will begin to feel a bit more like Spring as well!
Stay tuned throughout the rest of the week for more Spring and Easter-inspired projects.
