This week the Jillibean Soup team has teamed up with Just Nick! The results are a week full of inspiration!!!
Here's a little bit of information about Just Nick!
I am Nicole Nowosad and I love digital cut files! I love using them so much, that I created my own digital cut file website - JustNick.
We sell modern and unique digital cut files for download, ready for you to use on your crafting projects such as scrapbook layouts, cards, home decor and more! Have fun browsing the our images and using them on your pages.
All our cut files are available in PNG, DXF and SVG formats and are original designs by Nicole Nowosad for personal use only.
This week I thought I would share some behind the scene stuff that we do. I received the 2 new collections, Hardy Hodgepodge and Chit Chat Chowder about a month or so ago. I used the production samples to create projects for our trade show that we attended in July in Utah.
Now we are starting to get some advance samples of our big containers coming in and now it's time to photograph some of the product for upcoming marketing pieces that the graphic designers will turn into ads, email blasts and I will use on Instagram, Facebook and here on the blog.
While I am dying to cut into the product, I have to hold back and make sure we get some shots that we can use first.
This week I worked with Hardy Hodgepodge.
This collection has fun succulent icons on some of the papers, stickers and die-cuts. I pulled that into this photo shoot for an upcoming ad. I love our Mix the Media Chicken Wire Frame. It's the perfect piece to have hanging on your wall for those little notes and photos that you want to showcase. I usually have it hanging in my office with inspiration ideas. I pulled it down to use it for this photo shoot to show off the great new collection. (Those are faux succulents I picked up at Michaels. I kill plants. All plants.)
Next it was time for some close ups of product to use for social media.
The papers... LOVE the doggies, the succulents and cacti and those chevron!
The Stickers. I can't get enough of these. Great basics that can be used on any project.
The Pea-Pod Parts (aka die-cuts). Again... the doggies! LOVE!
The CORRUGATED ALPHAS are BACK! And they have some smiley new pieces!
Swoon! New painted wood veneers. I love the color blocked design and the icons are perfect!
Finally, the new glassine bags. These are a fun addition to our line of products. Jill loves little bags and the glassine has an old feel with fresh new designs imprinted on them. Perfect!
Here's a little video I did just to show you the new wood veneers and glassine bags a bit closer.
We hope you like this new collection. It starts shipping in about a month. Ask your favorite retailer if they have ordered it yet!
Next week, I will share more on the other collection, Chit Chat Chowder!
Good morning! This month's Designer Challenge involves inspiring ways to use Jillibean Soup's Mix the Media wood products. Earlier this week, we shared Summer Fullerton's Welcome Sign. Today, we have a couple of more signs to share that also use stencils to create a unique product for your home.
Design Team Member Kristine Davidson used a Mix the Media piece to create something for her washroom. The template was created using her Silhouette, which she then placed on top of the wood piece, traced, and filled in lightly with a black oil pen.

Supplies: Jillibean Soup Mix the Media: 16 x 20 Wood Plank
Other: Silhouette Cameo, black oil pen.
Design Team Member Summer Fullerton also used her Silhouette Cameo to create a vinyl stencil. Summer created a new paint color by mixing several of Jillibean Soup's Happy Hues and then dabbed the paint onto the stencil with a makeup sponge.
Happy Wednesday and happy 'Soup Spotting' day! Today, we are sharing some more of the Jillibean Soup projects that you created. Great job to these ladies!

Happy Tuesday! It's another day of Jillibean Soup Designer Challenge projects, which are all about wood this month! Jillibean Soup has many different wood products as part of the Mix the Media collection. Many of the wood products can be stenciled on. Design Team Member Summer Fullerton shares a wonderful example of that today! These directions to Summer's Welcome Sign will get you started...
You can always use scrapbook paper to make a stencil. This is a great alternative if you do not have any vinyl. Paper stencils don't always work well with smaller intricate designs. The first step to creating the sign is to cut your desired saying or image out of cardstock. Spray adhesive on the back of the image to make it stick to the desired surface.
Tape off your image.
Spray paint the negative space.
Gently remove the stencil to reveal your new sign.
