Focus On: Patterned Paper

>> Monday, May 16, 2011

Happy Monday! We hope you had a good weekend. For today, we challenged a few of our designers to create layouts focusing on our patterned papers. So if they wanted flowers, they needed to make their own. They used diecut systems, punches, scissors. Maybe a little stamp and ink. We think you'll love the results as much as we do!

Lisa Dickinson created this fun, graphic, and clean layout. (You can always click on the layout for a larger version.)

Lily Bee Supplies:
Stationary patterned paper - Oatmeal, Tomato
Picket Fence patterned paper - Sieze the Day, Fresh Air

Kim Arnold made little flowers and ribbons out of paper!

And she is kindly sharing some of her crafting secrets with us!

- Thin strips of patterned paper are easy to twist by running them along the edge of a sharp pair of scissors
- To make a handcut title, write the word in running writing, cut around outside with scissors, cut out insides of letters with a scalpel and then erase lines.

Lily Bee Supplies:
Happily Lost patterned paper – Good Book
Happily Lost patterned paper – Stroll
Happily Lost patterned paper – Hammock
Happily Lost patterned paper – Amazing Views

Iris Uy fussy cut, die cut, punched, tore to her heart's content with this colorful layout.

We hope you've enjoyed these layouts. And remember to share your Lily Bee creations with us on our Facebook page.
