September Challenge: Audrey

>> Monday, August 31, 2009


“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you."

-- Audrey Hepburn

Elegance.
Beauty.
Grace.
Charm.

We're talking about Audrey, of course:
This month, two lucky winners will receive the ENTIRE Audrey line from Lily Bee. If you'd like to be one of these winners, submit up to two layouts, cards, or projects using the Audrey line to Lily Bee's Ning gallery by Wednesday, September 30, before midnight MST. International entries are welcome! The two lucky winners will be announced on the Lily Bee blog on Monday, October 5.

A few of our designers translated their love of all things Audrey to their layouts and projects below:
"Thank You"
by Leah Killian
The best thing to hold on to in life is each other.
-- Audrey Hepburn
A thank you note is not only a way to express gratitude, it's also classy. The bold colors and graceful movements captured in the design of the Audrey papers add an extra touch of class to Leah's card.

"To Be 3"
by Stephanie Howell
For me, the only things of interest are those linked to the heart.
-- Audrey Hepburn
Stephanie embraces the elegance and charm of the Audrey line with a layout that pairs bold patterns and feminine accents with a charming little subject: her own little Miss Hepburn, her daughter.

"True Beauty"
by Jill Sprott

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

-- Audrey Hepburn

Taking inspiration from the quote above, this layout combines Audrey papers and rub-ons with photos that speak to the true nature of beauty. The floral accents were handcut and crafted from the "Classy" and "Graceful" Audrey papers, with sweet little button centers.

"Affection"
by Lori Gentile
I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.
-- Audrey Hepburn
Lori created this show-stopper of a wall hanging for her craft room with the "Graceful," "Smashing," Hollywood", and "Cosmopolitan" Audrey papers, demonstrating the versatility of a line fitting for both a starlet and a rough-and-tumble boy. "It captures my son perfectly," she says. "This quote is both of us to a T."

"Flawless"
by Nicole Harper

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

-- Audrey Hepburn

Elegance. Beauty. Grace. Charm. All of these qualities and more are evident in this lovely layout by Nicole. In addition to pairing the Audrey papers beautifully, Nicole includes an "A" monogram for a stylish touch.

"Sweet and Sassy"
by Katrina Huerta
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.
-- Audrey Hepburn
Katrina's layout is Audrey all over, showcasing spirit, spunk, and sweetness. Her layout demonstrates the unique ability of this special line to convey both an understated grace and a bold sense of whimsy.

Now it's time for you to embrace YOUR Audrey. We can't wait to see your layouts, cards, and projects using this fantastic line!

Audrey Line will begin hitting store shelves within the next week.
