It's December and that means a new Guest Designer for us here on the Lily Bee blog! We were so impressed with all of the Design Team applications that came in a couple months ago, that we've selected a few of our favorites here to our blog over the next few months as our Guest Designers! One of those fabulously talnted ladies, is December's Guest, Leigh Penner! Please welcome, Leigh and let's get to know her a bit more before jumping into her gorgeous projects for this week!
We asked Leigh to help us out during our Holiday Inspiration Series and she's done a super job this week sharing how you can use Persnickety even for your holiday packaging and decorating! Here's what Leigh had to say about her projects:
The colours and designs in the Persnickety line are just so pretty, I couldn't resist using them to make some Christmas gift tags and treat bags.
Supplies: Persnickety (Ritzy Paper, Fussy Paper, Mixed Cardstock Stickers)
I made the tag by diecutting some patterned paper with a die. I matted one of the Lily Bee stickers on some cardstock before adhering it to my card. I also matted one of the little triangle stickers-- by adding a strip of patterned paper for the stump, it becomes an adorable little Christmas tree! A stamped sentiment on a banner diecut, some ribbon, a button and some twine finish it off.
Supplies: Persnickety (Ritzy Paper, Mixed Cardstock Stickers)
For my treat bag, I cut a banner from the green chevron patterned paper and adhered it to the front of my bag. I then diecut a doily and banner. I stamped on the banner, scored it, folded it and adhered it to the patterned paper, using foam adhesive. On the doily, I adhered some more triangle stickers and created a little grouping of trees, all with patterned paper stumps before adhering it to the treat bag. -Leigh Penner
