Happy June!!!  And I can’t actually believe that I just said “Happy June!”.  Time flies ever faster.  But here we are and it’s sunny and bright and all the typical trappings of summer (Heat, Crazy Heat, and More Heat) have landed.  In fact, as I type the temperature gauge reads 112°.

And with all the sunny and summery comes another fabulous BYOC at The Lilypad.  It’s full of bright and happy colors and fun energy.

And it’s the bright and happy and summery that inspired these fresh products.

I just loved getting crafty with my punches and paper and baker’s twine to create these hand-crafted paper punched pennant-y and twine-y banner trims.  Meet Garland:

Garland is a collection of 17 different hand-crafted colorful, happy banner trims. There are monochromatic banner trims, and multi-colored banner trims. No two are the same. Some feature bows, some feature different kinds of knots and each features a different colored twine.  And you can take a peek at every single trim {HERE}.

Made to coordinate with the happy and fun June 2012 BYOC collection at The Lilypad but can be used with any variety of product lines and palettes.

Use them alone or in combination to dress up your pages and papers, frame photos, or add that extra touch of hand-crafted whimsy to any layout. Use buttons or staples to “attach” them to your pages or tuck them under layers or other trims or photos.

You can really have fun playing with the possibilities with these stash essential banner-y trims.

Also fresh for the BYOC are TWO new page design releases.

First is Coreopsis.  These templates reflect the spirit of the “Fresh Cut” series of templates: they are designed with a little more restraint in mind offering a cleaner page design for those who prefer simpler pages, while still affording you room to “play” and add to the page to suit your personal scrapping sensibilities.

The Coreopsis templates are designed in the spirit of clean lines, play with paper, summer sunshine and color, and the richness of the every day moment. This set is perfect for any summery page, any every day page or any page for which you hope to show off papers.

And then there is Coneflower.  These page designs were created as part of the “Full Bloom” series of templates and they are designed in the spirit of a “fuller” page, richer in layers with many little details and a little more depth, while still affording you room to “play” and modify the page to suit your personal scrapping sensibilities.

Coneflower is inspired by all things sunny and bright, element play, little details, summery sweetness and fun.

All three, Garland, Coreopsis and Coneflower are available in my shoppe for 20% off as part of The Lilypad’s BYOC new releases!  You can snag them for 20% off through Sunday 3 June 2012.

As always I looove to see your stories and art too, so please feel free to share with me anytime.  Really!  Just shoot me a mail or share them on my facebook page.  And if you haven’t signed up the newsletter yet you may want to do that so you can be the first to hear the latest news and get the latest exclusive savings.

Here’s to a beautiful start to a fabulously Happy Sunny weekend!!
