Lily Bee Layout | 5 Faves

My last layout for Lily Bee Design is on their blog today.  This week we are focusing on white space layouts.

Lily Bee Supplies:  Destination Collection (Port paper, Atlas paper, Label Stickers, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers, Embellishment Bundle), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Marshmellow paper, Licorice Whip paper, Letter Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers)

I'm not usually a white space scrapper, but I love looking at other people's white space layouts.  And just because it's "white space" doesn't mean the background has to be white or even a solid color.  I used a woodgrain polaroid paper from the Lily Bee Destination collection for my background.  The cool thing about white space layouts is that they really drawn your eye to the photo. 

I love that the colors of all the papers and embellishments really pop off the woodgrain background.

I used a smaller photo and clustered my papers and embellishments around the photo, leaving the rest of the layout bare with space.

I used a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop and drew the camera onto the yellow patterned paper.  Then I fussy-cut it and embellished it.

Lastly, I used a Uni-ball Signo gold pen to journal onto the woodgrain paper.

I’ve decided to step-down from the Lily Bee Design Team after my term ends at the end of September.  (Actually the DT term ended at the end of August, but we were asked to stay an extra month.)  I’ve loved using Lily Bee products to create layouts, cards, and projects the past seven months!  It will be exciting to see what new lines will be released this fall.  You can see all my projects for Lily Bee here on my blog.
