Hello and welcome to a brand new week here at Lily Bee. This week we are focusing on moms, whether it be our mom, being a mom or anything else related to that. We are grateful for all of the women who have had an influence for good in our lives- moms, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, teachers, friends and on and on. We hope you'll be inspired this week as we celebrate these wonderful women and the blessing of being a mom.
To start off today we have a fantastic page from Diana Fisher.
She shares, "As a mom, there is nothing better than watching your child love and succeed in something they are passionate about. It makes you feel like you've done your job in raising them to be at their best at all times. I love watching my son play baseball. You can see the intensity on his face and he is so excited to play or practice. I love watching him get better with each game, and knowing that I have a part in raising him to be amazing makes me very proud."
Supplies: Pinwheel (Flower box, Sprinklers, Cart wheels, Chipboard stickers, Circle & Tag stickers, Chit chat stickers, Brad, Badge, Button & Baker's Bundle, Letter Stickers, Label Stickers.
I really like how Diana used a variety of embellishments on her page yet still managed to keep it nice and clean. Here are some more cute details using the new Chit Chat and label stickers:
I really like how Diana added her title stickers right on top of her photo. I tend to be hesitant to do so just in case for some reason I might change my mind. Diana has inspired me to try it, though! I really like the effect on her layout.
For those who might not know this about me, I have four daughters. I was raised in a family with six girls, me being the second oldest. We don't have even one brother, and out of all of our kids there is one single boy. We seriously considered throwing a parade in my sister's honor for having the first boy. My husband likes to tease me that the genes in our family are too strong and overpower the ability to have boys! Ha ha! I think it's kind of funny.
Anyway, for our Focus on Moms feature I wanted to create a layout about my four sweet girls:
Supplies: Sweet Shoppe (Marshmellow, 6x6 Tiny Tablet), Persnickety (6x6 Tiny Tablet, Index Journaling Cards), Destination (6x6 Tiny Tablet), Pinwheel (Letter Stickers, Label Stickers, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers).
I have learned so much from these girls and am so proud to be their mom. I think that they teach me far more than I do for them. What a wonderful blessing they are to me.
I really like the new alphabet stickers and think it's fun to mix up the colors and sizes on my projects. Here I've mixed up the stickers with some diecuts made with my Cameo.
The heart bokeh paper from the Sweet Shoppe is one of my favorites from the new releases. It was the perfect backdrop for this page. I mixed in some Persnickety and bits and pieces of Destination and Pinwheel as well. I really like that you can mix the collections together.
Make sure to come back every day this week for even more inspiration celebrating Moms.
