The One with Guest Designing for Lily Bee Design

Thursday, May 30, 2013

When Heather with Lily Bee Design asked if I'd like to guest design for them I jumped at the chance! I love getting to play with new, awesome products! Lily Bee Design is right up my alley with bright colors, bold patterns, and a great mix of feminine designs for me and Jane and masculine designs for  Chris and Fox.

Journaling says: This picture was taken on Easter Sunday 2013 before we headed to church. Just a snapshot of our little family. Chris holding Fox and Paige holding Jane. We are a happy family!

How to: Lightly distress the edges of a blue cardstock background. Punch 3" squares from each patterned paper in the Pinwheel collection and trim them into triangles again and again until you have a bunch of sizes. Place a photo on the top left side of the background and arrange the triangles around the photo. Embellish the photo with three patterned buttons, a sentiment pennant sticker, and number stickers. Place label stickers on the edges of the layout, trim the excess, and stamp the date on the left one and write journaling on the right ones. Attach a fabric brad on the left and right edges, connect them with a piece of gray baker's twine, and staple the twine in place. Drop black spray mist around the layout. 

Supplies: Cardstock, pen, date stamp, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, fabric brads, buttons, baker's twine, stickers (labels, numbers, sentiments): Lily Bee Design; Staples: Office supply; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Ink: StazOn; Square punch: Marvy Uchida


How to: Punch starbursts from an assortment of papers from the Sweet Shoppe and Pinwheel collections and arrange them evenly spaced across a cream cardstock card base. Stitch double circles around three of the starbursts. Add a pink "happy birthday" sticker to an aqua label sticker, place a bow tied with gray baker's twine at the top, and adhere the embellishment on the right edge; trim any excess.

Supplies: Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, baker's twine, stickers (label, sentiment): Lily Bee Design; Starburst punch: Martha Stewart Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark



How to: Stitch a double border with white thread around a dark gray cardstock card base. Punch squares from the Pinwheel collection, fold the opposite corners of each square in to create a diamond, then arrange the diamonds across the card base in three rows. Layer label stickers, letter stickers, a flower fabric brad, and red striped button on the right edge to create a focal point and sentiment.

Supplies: Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, fabric brad, button, stickers (labels, letters): Lily Bee Design; Square punch: Fiskars; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark ******************************************************* THE CUTEST

How to: Trim a flower petal shape from cardboard then trace it onto both sides of every paper from the Sweet Shoppe collection, cut out the pieces, then sew around them to create a quilted look. Arrange the petals into a flower on a yellow cardstock background. Add a large crocheted doily to the center and top it with three photos. Make a title from letter stickers and embellish with a fabric brad, patterned button, and an assortment of stickers. Punch a partial scalloped border on each corner of the layout. Pierce a stickpin with a baker's twine bow tied on it through two of the punched edges. Drop aqua spray mist by the stickpins.

Supplies: Cardstock, date stamp, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, fabric brad, button, stickers (labels, letters, hearts, words, sentiments): Lily Bee Design; Stickpins: Making Memories; Baker's twine: The Twinery; Crocheted doily: Vintage; Ink: StazOn; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Scalloped border punch: Fiskars; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

Journaling says: Fox is so flippin' excited every time we walk by this house and find some sticks for him to hold and wave around. What is it with boys and sticks? Whatever floats his boat!

How to: Die cut a geometric background from gray cardstock then back most of the pieces with patterned paper from the Destination collection as well as four photos. Draw a border around the photos with a white pen to draw attention to them. Back one section with white cardstock and write journaling on it with a black pen. By the journaling add a letter sticker title in one section and place a sentiment label sticker and the date stamped on another label sticker tucked under a "GO" badge. Stamp the date again in white in a section on the top left side. Tie brown baker's twine in a bow around a section on the left side. Place a red fabric brad and yellow button on sections with paper of the same color. Drop white spray mist across the layout.

Supplies: Cardstock, date stamp, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, badge, fabric brad, button, baker's twine, stickers (label, letters, sentiment): Lily Bee Design; Pens: American Crafts (black), Uni-Ball Signo (white); Spray mist: Studio Calico; Die cut machine (Cameo), geometric background die (Silhouette): QuicKutz; Ink: StazOn (black), VersaMark (white)
