Happy Friday! Phew, what a week! I'm pleased to say that Jillibean's (Marysville offices with some retail space) will be open on Monday! Woo Hoo! That will give us a couple of days to work out some kinks before the big WAREHOUSE SALE on March 22, 23, and 24th! Exciting stuff!
Also, our NEW Releases are shipping NOW!!! Check your local retail store or online retailers for NEW Jillibean Soup!!! That's exciting too!
I have some more fantastic Designer Challenge projects from the design team. If you remember from last week, I challenged the girls by asking them to use as many Jillibean products on a project (and still have it look good). The results were AMAZING! Here's a couple more projects...
Nicole used 65 different Jillibean patterned papers on this layout! 1 layout with 65 different papers and it still looks FANTABULOUS!!! Love it! I love the use of greens, yellows, grays and blues .. and look, they all match! That's the great thing about Jillibean - you can mix the "old" with the "new"!
Nicole shared that it took her 5 hours to put together this layout - that's a real trooper (and a devoted team member)! She sewed all those pie charts together - simply amazing!

Just realized that Mel's and Nicole's layouts both have the same title - great minds... Mel did a FANTASTIC job showcasing papers within our NEW Placemats! This is a great way to showcase papers and basically make your own patterned paper. Mel used 8 different papers from 7 different collections - again mix and match the old with the new! She also showcased kraft tags, New Sugar Picks, New Pea Pods and New Wise Words!

Summer did some color blocking on her BEAUTIFUL layout. Like I've said before, Jillibean uses the same reds, browns, greens in most of our collections. Most of the yellows, blues, teals and pinks are similar or within the same palette. You can really see this with Summer's layout. Summer pulled papers from 11 different collections - that's pretty cool. They all work so well together! Love that Jillibean Soup ;)
