We Are Storytellers

It's a fun time at The Lilypad! For starters, it's SOSN (50% select old and new products) today. Then, there's also a fantastic event going on called We Are Storytellers. It includes a free daily download (collect all pieces for a gorgeous collaboration kit!) and wonderful inspiration via challenges and tutorials. I am a long-time scrapper, but this event really made me think back to why I love this hobby so much, and made me want to scrap even more.
But, getting back to SOSN... here's what I scrapped with some of the products on sale!

I have plenty of photos from our recent vacations that are scrap-worthy, and I'm definitely having fun with it.

Summer Fun

Yay, it's Friday again! It's no secret that I've been enjoying this summer, and I love the new products at The Lilypad because they help me document these memories. I played with two new releases. The first one is by Just Jaimee.

Such a fun, fun collection! Works for a lot of different pages. Here's what I did:

Hello Hello Summer

I'm kinda in love with this photo I took in our backyard... It yells summer to me!

Speaking of summer...


Yes, this has been elected drink of the summer over here. ;)

I was on vacation when the July BYOC was released, so I missed it. So happy to play with it now that Lynne-Marie released her products combined into a kit! I also used this gorgeous new templates and journaling cards.

I made a month in review page. :)

And that's all I have to share. Happy Friday... and happy shopping! ;)

Hello July!

Well, we're a few days into July already (eeeek!), but I wanted to share the page I made for this month's gallery at, themed "the great outdoors".


Summer has never been my favorite season, but as the years go by, I appreciate it more and more. I love how this picture I took captures the feeling of summer for me.

Mari Koegelenberg Is Back!!

I apologize for the absence on my blog.. I actually was on vacation for two weeks (yay!) and had a lovely time, but I am glad to be back to my craft room now. :)

Something really exciting happened while I was gone.. Mari Koegelenberg opened up a new digital shop and is back to designing!! So so so happy to be playing with her designs once again! She has a gorgeous brand new collection that I love, aptly named Fresh Start.

I have been on Mari's creative team for over five years and I can't begin to express how grateful I am. She is such a lovely person and I am so glad to know her! Here's what I made with this gorgeous kit:

Everyday Moments

I was also super inspired by the gorgeous brushes included in this collection, and broke out my watercolors to make a card and some tags.

Have a good Sunday!
