Hello! It’s Polly Melissa here reminding you that TLP has a fantastic seasonal section in the store. And guess what’s in season right now?


You can find all the Easter scrappy goodness right here. There are cute bunnies and baskets, adorable eggs, journal cards, templates along with some more traditional He Is Risen elements as well. Don’t forget you can find the spring scrappy fun in this section too!

I did a quick search in the gallery and found good inspiration. Take a look!









P.S. Yesterday’s brand new goodies are amazing – find them here . . . on sale right now!

Behind the Design: Gina Miller Designs

Written by The Lilypad. Posted in Behind the Designs, Blog

Hi all!  Polly Jewelle here with another edition of Behind the Design.  With a little bit of pleading and maybe a few bribes we got the designers here at the LilyPad to agree to show off their design spaces at home.  They also agreed to answer a few questions about their design space that will allow us to get to know them better.  This month we are going behind the designs of

Mac or PC?

 27” fully loaded iMac! :)
Coffee or tea (or both/neither)?

BOTH! I start my day with coffee (mostly black, just a little milk), and eventually finish with green tea.

Guilty pleasure snack while creating/scrapping?
Almonds… chocolate… and I am oddly addicted to olive tapenade hummus with cucumbers.
Favorite music to listen to?
I have my Billy Joel playlist going right now. :) Or I just rotate through my playlists which include the widest range of music under the sun. I have very strange taste. =P
Your view from your scrap space?
I included a shot of my living room’s gallery wall, since it’s probably my favorite design aspect to my house. I am constantly re-arranging pieces and adding new prints.  This wall is directly to my right, so I kind of feel like it inspires me daily while I work. :)
What software do you use to create with?
Photoshop CS 6
Favorite photo editing tools?
Clone brush. :) I use it to lighten under eye circles and smooth newborn skin. 
Favorite time to create (morning or evening)?
Evening. I prefer to do absolutely nothing but sip coffee in the morning if possible. That’s rare, but a girl can dream, right?
Favorite thing about your workspace?
It’s right in the center of everything. I can work and still have a movie night with my kids.
Least favorite thing about your workspace?
It’s right in the center of everything. Lol, JK…kinda. It’s very easy to get distracted working in the middle of the living room which is the central hangout for the family.
What would you dream workspace look like and where would it be?
I would have my own office. Maybe I’d go back to doing some paper scrapping if I had the space!
