I love good news!

And that news is...I get to be a guest designer at Jillibean Soup sometime this coming year!!! I think that they put out the cutest stuff and so I will be very excited for when my turn comes up, although I am not all that sure yet when that will be.
AND - I wanted to share a couple projects using tons of Jillibean Soup.
I just love when several patterns of papers will work together for a coordinated look. When I first saw these corrugated alphabet letters I just knew I had to get some so when I found them at Emma's Paperie the other day, I added them to my order. I picked the white ones because I just did not know what color I should get. I sprayed the ones on this card with yellow Memories Mist to change the color then I rubbed them with a green Powder Puff chalk stamp pad. I guess the white ones were a good choice since I could custom color them.
See my little pleated accent? I just folded a strip of paper with pleats and then attached it to my card with some machine sewing right down the middle.
This umbrella patterned paper made me soooooo happy since we had just had an afternoon of playing in puddles with a yellow umbrella.
Again, I was able to make the alphabet letters match my layout by giving them a custom coloring job. I sprayed them with that same yellow Memories Mist and rubbed them with brown Powder Puff Chalk ink, just along the bottom of each letter.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
