pleats & stitches

The sun is shining, my family is all home and it’s a holiday today in Canada where we live. What a beautiful day. It’s Family Day and we are celebrating by just hanging out together, cooking a turkey and hopefully having a serious board game marathon.

Today I have a couple card designs to share with you featuring my new upcoming paper line, Victoria Park. It’s shipping out to stores March 1st…just one and a half more weeks to go!

My first card was inspired by a pillow I found in a home dec store. It had stitched box pleat ruffles and my daughter and I fell in love with it. I just had to give it a whirl with paper to see if I could transfer the look to a card design.

My second card was inspired by greens and the next upcoming celebration…St. Patrick’s Day. While this isn’t a card for it per se, the inspiration is still there. It incorporates more pleats…this time in the form of a pleated rosette.

Today on the Lily Bee blog, the product focus is Victoria Park. Stop by for some more inspiration.


If you’re celebrating something today..enjoy!

Happy Monday!
