Jillibean Soup products are so super cute. Seriously, they suck me in every time with their fun colors and whimsical designs. However, I rarely reach for them to scrap with. Something about the bold, crisp patterns and the super cute but somewhat themed designs tend to leave me choosing other papers first. I decided it was time for that to change and if I was going to keep buying these fun papers...I should most certainly decide if I actually enjoy scrapping with them.
So, with that goal in mind, I grabbed my stash of Jillibean and got to work. Here is what I came up with, in order of creation. I did add in other bits and pieces here and there, but 90% of every layout is of the soup variety!
I started things out with a fun photo that always makes me smile:This next one is based on one of Shimelle's old sketch to scrapbook pages and I love how this sketch allows the fun patterns to shine:
My sweet little chickadee was perfect for the Easter themed papers:
Using mostly "B" sides here, with a strip of bunny ears peaking out:
This one was super fun to do and I had fun with more of a grid pattern:So many of the papers seem to work well with old photos:
Another throw back here (I can't tell you how many times the background changed on this one and I just kept cutting the middle strip off of the mess-ups):
Another one with mostly "B" sides and I love the pale blue and white stars for this pict:
After this last layout was complete, I had just enough stash left to do a double pager. I know...me...a double pager? Shocking! So, did I enjoy my time with all of this soup? Will I order this from the menu again? I will let you know next time, along with a start to finish of said double pager. As always, click on soapHOUSE scraps over in the left hand side to visit my gallery for all the nitty gritty on each of these pages.
Do you like soup? Jillibean flavored?
