I hope everyone is enjoying this first day of July!!   Besides the fact that I can hardly believe I typed that sentence just now, I do hope that those of you in the midst of summer have been enjoying the sunshine and the playfulness of these weeks!  We have fled the Oven Heat for a short trip back “home” and so this post comes to you from the shores of Lake Michigan where I can see actual water and actual green trees and where I send happy hellos with a happy belly full of real pizza.  And by “real” I mean Chicago pizza.

Speaking of full…this week is FULL of fresh releases!!

(did you like that segue?  Punny, right?).

So let’s dive in to this deep dish of goodies.

(oooh see that? I did it again..).

And yes, forgive me, I may or may totally be a little gooped up on the gop to be back home visiting with my family which means the goofy is a little more obvious than usual.  But in all seriousness, I am really excited to share this week’s new releases.

It’s BYOC and quarterly storewide sale time at The Lilypad!  Which means YAY for savings!

I was inspired by the fabulous and fun, the sunny and nautical-y, the patriotic, and the playfulness of summer when creating my contributions to this month’s amazing BYOC.

Meet Bluebonnet.

The Bluebonnet templates are designed in the spirit of the every day, of fun, sunshine, summer, nautical, and play…with varied design styles ranging from a “fuller” page, richer in layers with many little details and a little more depth to cleaner and more linear designs. This set is perfect for any summer or vacation page, everyday page, all about me, or event page and gives you room to “play” and modify each page to suit your personal scrapping sensibilities.

And then, since it is Independence Day weekend here in the States and the 4th is one of my most favorite holidays I was inspired to create Mayflower.  I just love the family time, the fireworks, the warm, the patriotism, the remembrance and all the red, white, and blue.  And all of those happy things pulled me to create this patriotic collection of layered templates, clipping mask templates, and stamps/brushes.

Here’s a more detailed look at the components.

The Mayflower {templates} are designed in the spirit of love for country, of fun and family, celebrating the 4th of July…This set is perfect for any independence day or patriotic page but can easily be modified to suit any everyday page and the designs give you room to “play” and modify each page to suit your personal scrapping sensibilities

he Mayflower {clipped} clipping masks includes 11 different clipping mask templates for photos and papers (in .png format). They are sized BIG so you can easily resize and customize the look to your page designs and color schemes. The photo {clipped} masks are sized 4×6 in portrait and landscape orientations. The patriotic phrase and word art sentiments include “fourth”, “my country tis of thee”, “america the beautiful”, “home of the brave”, “land of the free”, “from sea to shining sea”. Also includes a fun sliced star clipping template. Inspired by Independence Day Mayflower {clipped} is the perfect touch of fresh whimsy for any patriotic page! Also wonderful for cards and notes and blog posts.

The Mayflower {seeds} are a fun set of 30 patriotic words (in both plain and scattered versions) and an additional 8 patriotic stamps. Stamped sentiments include: 4th, 4th of July, american boy, american girl, america, america america, bbq, brave, bright stars, broad stripes, family, firecracker, fireworks, founding fathers, freedom, fun fun, God bless, honor, independence, liberty, love for country, monument, never forget, old glory, patriot, proud, red.white.blue., stars & stripes, sparklers, stars, U.S.A.
