more Jillibean Soup

Yes, I have more Jillibean Soup projects to share :) I told you I got some fun goodies last weekend! Plus, I'm submitting my projects to their DT call. I know it's a long shot...there's a lot of great talent out there. And even though I don't think I have a huge shot of getting one of those coveted spots, I figure you can't get anything unless your try, right?! I still have a few projects I'm working on and then I can figure out which ones to send to JS.

Here's a few layouts I created:

As soon as I saw those cute piggies I knew what layout I wanted to do. We're always calling my daughter's guinea pig "little piggy" so it was fitting.
I cut out the little piggies and popped them up to add some dimension on the page. And since there wasn't much room for journaling I simply wrote around the outside of the layout...something I end up doing a lot since I don't really think about where I'm going to put journaling until the page is pretty much completed.

Another layout of my daughter. I actually took these pictures at the movies on Friday. We came out and it was pouring down rain. So while we were waiting for the rain to let up a little (so we wouldn't get totally drenched) I took some pics. They ended up being perfect for this layout.
Added some butterflies (so loving butterflies lately!) and the title and scallop circle were cut with my Silhouette.

And some cards...
The little birdie punch is from Stampin' Up.
I used a journaling sprout for the center, red scallops are punched with a circle scallop punch, and the 'thank you' stamp is Stampin' Up. 

This next card I used my new 'Everyday Button Bits' stamp set from Papertrey. I'd been eying that stamp set for a while...finally broke down and bought it :) The little cherries go great with that cherry paper.

Circle & scallop circle were cut with Spellbinders dies. I also used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I also created a layout for their sketch challenge, so I'll share that tomorrow. Have a wonderful Sunday friends :)
