If you haven't yet seen my prior post here, I was honored with title of 'Guest Designer' for the month of May for Jillibean Soup. Since the remainder of my projects went live at the end of the month, I wanted to take the opportunity to share them here, as well.
The following projects all feature Jillibean's newest Birthday collection 'Birthday Bisque'. My motto is, you can never have enough birthday themed supplies - especially if they're Jillibean! ;). This is one of my very favorite recent JBS collections and in turn, helped me produce some of my most favorite projects. Let's start with the layout...
The bite-sized bits paper was a favorite of mine. I love all of the 3x4 cards and had trouble narrowing down which ones to use. A quick grid design came to the rescue by allowing me to incorporate several of the cards alongside some mini placemats for an effective and colorful backdrop for my pictures and memories.
Next up was a birthday card. I just loved this aqua and orange color combo, which included a pop of red. Again, I used one of my favorites of the mini placemats, to work my design around. Even with the addition of the mini heart, I think this card could work for either a male or female recipient.
The focus of this last card, is again a piece trimmed from the bite-sized bits patterned paper. This time, I trimmed the card into a tag shape, punching holes at the top and threading on twine for added dimension. It looks so cute 'adhered' to the card base with that mini colorful clothespin, don't you think?!
You can get another look at these projects over on the Jillibean Soup blog.
Happy Monday, friends!
