Happy Valentines Day! Suz had found the day had sneaked up on her and was in need of a card, fast. But what she had on her desk was Jillibean Soup’s Christmas Range – which surprisingly with a little editing, lent itself quite beautifully to a cute card. She cut out two christmas mittens from the Turkish Bay Leaf patterned paper (and tried hard to ignore the fact that the cherries were upside down) and shaped them instead into two halves of a heart. A few layers of Journalling Sprouts, some of the string from the Bean Stalks ribbon and twine – the palette was perfect for a Valentine, and she had herself a card!
So here, Jillibean Soup’s Christmas line, called Chestnut Soup is used for the purpose it was designed! It’s a subtle traditional Christmas palette, olive green, crimson, a watermelon red, and kraft. Christmas is traditionally a busy time of year and, with busy photos, muted colours and smaller patterns help so that they don’t overwhelm your layout. Containing small bits of pattern and art within boundaries is something Suz is concentrating on with her layouts this year, along with her intention to do more doubles, use more photos and tell more stories, and the Jillibean Soup designs – and journalling spots - are the perfect tools to help her achieve this goal.
What a cute collection by Jillibean Soup "Monster Stew" all the adorable little monster make for a fun boys layout. The colours to this collection are just gorgeous so vibrant and very easy to coordinate and a great selection of pattern papers, chipboard pieces and stickers to make a great layout.
Janine fell in love with the Jillibean soup papers, so bright and so much fun! They were so perfect for her boy pages and the journaling circles were so versatile! Janine layered the journaling circles to create the look she wanted on the page. Her favourite thing from the range was the corrugated lettering! It is so wonderfully textural and you can dress it up with inks, or paints or just keep it the way it is.
We sent Leeann Pearce a well deserved prize pack for a challenge last year, and this is what she did with some of it. She has used the Jillibean Soup Basics on White and the Pasta Fagioli papers long with Journalling Sprouts to make an awesomely fabulous page. We loved all the little details like the Bakers Twine and the Corrugated Flower Shapes too, and love that she was happy for us to share more of her talent in this post.
Jane Clarke loved this range of Jillibean Soup, it was perfect for this get well card. The strip along the bottom shows beakers filled potions to make a concoction to make them feel better!
Jane reports that the stickers have great, versatile captions. The word 'love' was created using the chemical alphabet stickers and could pass as a great non-traditional valentine! Jane fussy cut the honeycomb design paper to compliment the DNA designed paper seen at the top and bottom.
