Jillibean cards

I've been trying to be good at not buying more patterned paper till I used up the ones that I already have. But, we all knows how hard it is to resist buying papers, right? My husband called me paper addict. LOL. I do love paper. Love looking at them, playing with them, thinking of different combo that I can do, etc.

Well, about a week or so ago, after much resistant, I ordered a few more papers. And, I've been looking at Jillibean papers and finally decide to give it a try. I do love the quality of their papers. It's good quality and thick. I like the fact that their papers are double sided and they mix and match so perfectly.

Here's the 1st card I made using the papers from Minestrone collection. For the center of the flower, I glued clear button to the patterned paper and then trimmed the paper. (Bought a bunch of clear buttons on Ebay. I really should become the spoke person for Ebay since I refer so many people to  them. LOL.) Now, I can customize my buttons!!

Here's the 2nd card. Super simple, but pretty eye catching. I used one of my favorite design from Silhouette, the birdie! Really enjoyed playing with the Jillibean papers. I also made a book cover, which I'll share here tomorrow.

And, psstt... I have an exciting announcement to make soon. Has something to do with design team. That's all I can say for now. I am waiting for the okay and once I got it I'll definitely share it here. :) You all have a super duper Monday and may this week be a great one! Hugs, Vera (Ling)

Those are wonderful! I love the pattern combinations you used, I always have trouble with that part. I am a paper addict, too, and that's ok with me!
