This week on Lily Bee we are talking about trends. I have one I love, love, love — Nautical. I know it isn't for everyone, but I've been a long-time fan of stripes, navy, pops of red and even stars. When the anchors started showing up in scrapbooking products, I was quite excited.
Wednesday is cards day at Lily Bee, so I made 2 cards that show off the nautical trend. I used the Destination Collection from Lily Bee, and it is a travel line — not nautical — which shows that you don't have to invest in a nautical-themed collection to still play along with the nautical look in your projects.
For this first card I went with the anchor (cut from a die that my bestie Sara sent me) for the main image. The dark woodgrain works so well with the map background and the color scheme.
For this second card, I focused on a lighthouse. I cut it using my Silhouette Cameo and multiple patterns and colors from the Destination collection at Lily Bee.
I love how these turned out! I challenge you to find some papers and patterns in non-nautical collections and turn them into a sea-worthy, fabulous project.
Thanks for stopping here. Check out what else is going on at Lily Bee on the blog.
