Happy Monday, Lily Bee fans! Hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend with your family and friends! Christine here today, along with Becky, to kick off Fun In The Sun Week here on the Lily Bee blog.
Becky and I decided to use some of our vacation photos to make some pages that are about fun in the sun!
Becky's fun layout features awesome colorful vacation photos and super-cute embellishments.
Supplies: Destination (Landmark, Boarding Pass, Port, Postcard, 6x6 Tiny Tablet, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers, Label Stickers, Embellishment Bundle), Handmade (Index Journaling Cards)
Becky used the Eiffel Paris cut file in the Silhouette online store to cut her Eiffel tower out.
Here's what Becky said about her layout:
Ever since my girls read the "Fancy Nancy" book about a boy from Paris they have wanted to visit the city of Paris, TX to see the Eiffel Tower with the cowboy hat on top. Just a few weeks ago we were able to cross that little trip off of their bucket list and it was so much fun! One of the kids was disappointed that the tower wasn't taller but sure got a kick out of seeing it up close.
I love the new Chit Chat stickers and used a bunch to my page along with one of the new metal badges. Layering and clustering embellishments is a great way to bring added visual interest to your project.
While we weren't able to travel all the way to Paris, France, this "Landmark" paper from the Destinations collection was perfect for this page. In order to make the background more subdued I added some white spray mist which allowed my pictures and embellishments to stand out better on the page.
For my layout, I used a photo from our December 2011 vacation to Oahu. We went on a hike to the Makapuu Lighthouse and enjoyed some gorgeous views along the way.
Supplies: Destination Collection (Atlas paper, Luggage paper, Tickets paper, Boarding Pass paper, Souvenier paper, Postcard paper, Letter Stickers, Label Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers), Sweet Shoppe Collection (6x6 Tiny Tablet)
I made the large sun on top by cutting out a half circle and mounting it on foam adhesive. Then I pierced some holes in the shape of lines radiating from the sun, and used the twin in the Destination Embellishment Bundle to create the sun rays.
I mixed some banners that I cut out from paper, along with a chipboard banner to create different textures and depths.
I used this Fun In The Sun cut file from the Silhouette online store and cut it out using the yellow airplane paper from Destination.
A few Chit Chat Stickers and Label Stickers scattered on the layout completed my layout.
We hope you have a wonderful week full of fun in the sun, along with some creative time! Should you feel inspired to create using some awesome Lily Bee products, please share with us in our Flickr group or on Facebook.
