All you need to do is create a layout using lots of Jillibean Soup patterned papers, alphabeans, bean stalks, bean blossoms, journalling sprouts and/or sugar picks and email it to us by Thursday 3rd November. We’ll send all your entries over to Jillibean Soup who will choose their favourite to win the prize pack and appear on their blog. This challenge is open to Australian/NZ residents only. If you need help finding a local scrapbook store who stocks Jillibean Soup, leave us a comment and we’ll lend a hand finding one near you.
To get you started, here’s some inspiration from our own design team and online.
How cool and how fun is this line from Jillibean Soup?! Leeann just had a blast creating this two-pager using the Sweet and Sour line.
Leeann turned the Bit Size Uncut Cards into totally fun banners which also acted as a photo matt for the silly fun photos of her daughter Holly. She finished this two-pager off by using the die cut shapes for her embellishments and simply highlighting them with a button to make them pop.
Louise created this deceptively simple layout with the Dutch Mustard Soup collection. The co-ordinated cardstock stickers and diecut shapes made it a quick and easy layout to put together, and the Coredinations cardstock base was sanded lightly to enhance the inner core colour and draw the eye slightly towards the centre of the layout.
Sue has used the Apple Cheddar Soup range from JilliBean Soup to create a layout featuring beautiful autumn tones. Sue really enjoyed using the range, she says, the colours and adorable small prints are fresh and easy to work with. Jillibean produce a die-cut sheet to co-ordinate with their ranges and they are fantastic value, allowing you to add quick and easy embellishments to your page. Sue also added in a little chipboard from MME and a few cute buttons from Crate Paper to completer her page.
We just adore this page by Ashley Harris. She has kept the focus on those gorgeous baby feet and scrapped this page perfectly; Ashley has used a mixture from Jillibean’s Homemade line. Thank you so much for letting us share your adorable page.
It’s an explosion of colour and such a cool page created by Kim Watson. We loved the strong vertical lines and whimsical placement of buttons. Kim has used Sweet and Sour by Jillibean. Thank you Kim for letting us share your colourful masterpiece.
Wendy McKee's 'Love' card using the new Hearty Barley Soup range immediately caught Louise's eye in a gallery. The warm colours and clever use of patterns along with the diecut edges and punches of white, made this a standout.
Louise loved Mel Blackburn's gorgeous layout using a Jillibean Soup corrugated background. By cutting circles and rotating the grain, she's added a subtle but interesting details to a very pretty page.
This vibrant layout from Becky Williams also uses the lovely Jillibean Soup products to their best. Louise loved the detail of the stripes and photos on the kraft tags and the little cluster with the bakers twine to highlight the journalling. The large corrugated lettering completes the girlie layout with a kid-like twist.
