Mobile Highlights

Written by The Lilypad. Posted in Blog, Mobile Fun, TLPMobileHighlights


It’s time for our last mobile highlights of the year, where has the time gone! My husband and I have been out this evening finishing off some of our last holiday shopping and soaking up the atmosphere in our town, it’s been lovely.

So, lets start with this lovely layout mollycscraps! Molly uses patterns is a beautiful way here to mat her large photo without distracting from her adorably cheeky subject. The different sized snowflakes and careful placement of elements really draw your eye in to the photo.


Next up is this fabulous pile of prints of gorgeous DYD products from idocumentlife; I always think it’s so lovely to see how lovely digital products translate so well into printed form. I look forward to seeing what comes of these!


Lorryfach’s vibrant and masculine layout is up next, the use of the geometric shapes from the chevrons gives a really urban feel which is again reflected in the urban setting of the photo. I love this stolen moment of city life captured in this layout.


Next up is something a little softer, a great fall family photo paired with the sun burst paper cuts and lovely word art lends itself to coming together in a simple but brilliantly designed layout from MyMalloryBoys.


Finally, you all know by now how much I like a good pocket page, and this one is no exception from StaciaHall. The bold colours of this photoless page are fabulous and the heartfelt statements contained in this art-journal style documenting are wonderful as we head towards a new year!


And, that’s all for 2014, but be sure to keep hashtagging so that we can find your lovely creations to share as we hop on in to the new year.


Hybrid Variety Show – Gold

Written by The Lilypad. Posted in Blog, Printable Projects -Hybrid

It’s December folks! The year is almost gone. How did that happen? This is the final Hybrid Variety Show for 2014. Where does the time go?
tlpthvs_gold2The gold alpha in the header image above was created using the Holiday Hangover Alpha by Allison Pennington. The gold stars are from Hello December Elements by Laurie Ann. You can purchase both of these and many other golden nuggets in the current Trend Watch category.
You might have noticed that the current Trend Watch is gold - smooth, shimmery, gorgeous gold. Gold just has a way of making things look richer. A few of the hybrid gals here at the pad had an amazing time creating some beautiful holiday projects with gold. Sarah made some tags using the gilded Pocket Full of Joy cards from Stolen Moments Design. They are beautiful and will be a nice treat when adorned a gift. goldgifttags_sarah Karen created an absolutely stunning mini book using ForeverJoy’s Gather Together mini book as a template. Karen used some of the beautiful gold elements from the Document Your December category to customize it for her needs and of course to add a little bling to the book. goldminibook_karen I have been busy working on my December album. This year I decided to create a hybrid album rather than a digital one. I used some of the current trend watch items as well as the 2014 Document Your December products, as well as a plethora of goodies from my paper stash. If you are new to the Document Your December concept feel free to peek into the gallery for some inspiration. There are loads of products to choose from in coordinating thems and color palette.goldalbum_trista   That’s it for this edition of the Hybrid Variety Show. We are always so inspired to create beautiful things with the amazing products at The Lilypad, we hope you are inspired to create something too! trista_tlpblog
