July BYOC at The Lilypad

I was out of town for the first half of the week, and after coming home last night, I went a tad crazy using the newest BYOC collection from The Lilypad. I had so much fun with it, and ended up making 7 layouts in one sitting! Here they are.

Supplies:
Wine not? (papers) by Little Butterfly Wings
Textual Layered Transfers 4 by Lynn Grieveson Designs
Resplendent Map Graffiti by Tangie Baxter

It was too hot to go watch fireworks on the 4th of July, but at least we had our outfits right. 🙂

Supplies:
Time Out Papers and Time Out Brushes by Li Li Wee
Expressions No. 3 by Rebecca McMeen
Black paper from Wine not? (papers) by Little Butterfly Wings

Last week I took part in a work event that I’d been working like crazy for for the past 6 months. It didn’t go as expected… but I’m trying to focus on the good things. One of them, was my outfit + makeup.

Supplies:

I snapped this photo from the back seat of an Uber car, and I love this shot of the blurry taxi with the Empire State Building in the back. 100% New York City.

I love every single thing Rebecca McMeen designs. I mean, look at these sketches and florals! I just had to add a couple to dress up this page, and it looks like something out of a magazine!

And that is my 7th page. Such a great collection this month!

 

Unfortunately tonight I learned some incredibly sad news about one of my favorite designers at The Lilypad: Dawn Inskip. She will be so missed in our scrapbooking community! Such a gentle and creative soul.

April Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

It’s time for the newest Mixed Media Monthly collection from The Lilypad – and it’s a really good one! I made 4 pages all in one sitting, because there were just so many good papers in the kit that I wanted to use!

Supplies:
April 2018 Mixed Media Monthly from The Lilypad

The first page had to be about the crazy weather we are having this year.

Next, I made a motivational page inspired by the background paper with the words “time to begin again”.

What I love with the M3 collection is that you can add as little or as much as you want, and you can’t go wrong! Here I added very little – one piece of word art, a photo, and my journaling. That background paper is just so pretty!

And to finish, one more page about this crazy, crazy weather.

Have a lovely weekend!
