Jillibean Soup Layout and Tags

I've been a slow blogger, I kinda forget about this blog, I'll blame it on IG, all my work is now posted there so I've been neglecting this little ol' blog of mine. Today I'm sharing 2 projects I created for Jillibean Soup. First up is a layout created using the Cool as Cucumber collection, love the bold colours, especially the orange, perfect to pair up with a black and white picture.


I also have this set of Halloween tags that features the new stencils and Owloween Stew collections. I've decided to stop creating cards for a bit, I felt like I was repeating the same design pattern over and over again, instead I've started making tags, it was time to mix things up a bit.

Happy with Fancy Pants

It's the beginning of a new week and I'm back to share a new layout created for Fancy Pants design for the Social Media team. To create this layout I used the True Friends collection. Fun fact, the arrows in the centre of my page are actually a small tree that is part of the diecuts, I simply removed the tree stump and flipped the tree upside, it creates a new fun accent.

I've created a fun layout especially for this blog hop, I used the stamps from the main LP kit to embellish my white cardstock along with a mix of gelatos. All the supplies on this layout are from the main kit and add ons, even the lovely wood veneers, those are exclusive to Gossamer Blue!!!

Magic with Fancy Pants

Well, I think it's pretty evident that Christmas is just around the corner and will be here before we know it. I was drooling over the Fancy Pants Oh Deer collection and knew I had to put everything aside to create a fun layout. I just love how Fancy Pants always offers coordinating tags with their collections, I love using tags, so it was a no brainer to incorporate one on this layout, in fact I love it so much that I decided to make it the focus of my layout. This layout is created for Fancy Pants as member of the Social Media team.

October Layouts - Gossamer Blue

Oh my word! How I loved working with the October kits, yes I say this every month and yes they blow my mind every month! Seriously love the mix of fallish colours along with bold blacks and golds papers. It was such an pleasure designing these layouts. I created them during a SCT Crop and Create event and it was fun not having to pack a lot of supplies, just my kits and that kept me going all weekend.
