Hi Everyone! It's the first Saturday of the month and that means it is BYOC week-end at The Lilypad. Lynn has three wonderful kits in the collection. I hope you've been shopping. The kits are on sale for 20% off all week-end with an opportunity to save even more with the "buy more, save more" program. You will find that Lynn's kits coordinate seamlessly with all the other designers' kits. Here is a look at her contribution. As you can see one of the kits is the Here & No
It is one of my favorite times at The Lilypad -- BYOC (Build Your Own Collection). This month the color palette is so sweet and delightful. Lynn has 3 kits available for the collection; Simply This Elements, Simply This Papers and Simply This Templates. Lynn's Creative Team put together a great collection of layouts to showcase her designs. Some used all three kits while others used only 2. Let's take a look at a few: First is a layout by Judy, chigirl, titled "Simple Jo
Hi All! It's Build Your Own Collab (BYOC) time at The Lilypad again (it happens the first Friday of every month). Lynn has 3 WONDERFUL kits in the sale: Marina Del Rey Elements, Marina Del Rey Papers and Marina Del Rey Templates. I thought it would be fun to see how Lynn's CT played with the Marina Del Rey Templates (and the rest of the Marina Del Rey kits, of course). The beauty of templates is the structure they give you as you manipulate the look of the page with the cho
Yippee! It's BYOC (Build Your Own Collab) time at The Lilypad. Lynn's BYOC kits are titled: Honey I'm Home Elements, Honey I'm Home Papers, Honey I'm Home Transfers. They are FANTASTIC and on sale for 20% off all week-end, July 1 - 3, 2016. Lynn's Creative Team had the best time making memorable layouts with her wonderful designs. Just have a peek... Judy (chigirl) used one of the transfers to add extra emphasis to her photo. I love the large torn paper strip that she ad
It's BYOC time at The Lilypad! It is wonderful that it comes along just in time for NSD. Lynn has three beautiful kits titled "Adventure Calls" (Elements, Papers, Journal Cards) as her contribution to the collection this month. Lynn's Creative Team used the kits for a fantastic array of layouts. Look and see!!! Each layout is linked to Lynn's gallery so you can see all the details about each page. Donna aka djp332 "The Missing Piece" Lynn's kits work beautifully with the
It's the build up to International Scrapbooking Day AND the release of the May BYOC (Build your own collection) and that means a storewide sale plus lots of fun events and freebies at The Lilypad.
Everything in store is 30% off. Spend $15 across the whole store and you get part two of the amazing "Life is an Adventure" collaboration kit free.
But as well, if you spend $15 or more just in my store (Lynn Grieveson Designs) before midnight on 9 May you will get an extra $5 o
That's what scrapbooking is all about really, isn't it?
Telling stories about your life (or the lives of those you love) ... usually with pictures.
I have made several albums for my parents of trips they have taken, but last year I made them two very special photobooks.
I called them "chocolate box albums" because, just like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get (in this case, when you turn the page).
I scanned a whole bunch of t
It sounds a bit like the title of a poem ... but actually it's the two designs in store today at The Lilypad and 50% off for Wednesday only. I scrapped our tropical fairy on the balcony of our Singapore apartment.
And then I scrapped her lots of times on various adventures which is so quick and easy (but still creatively satisfying) with the Lots of Pockets templates: ~ Lynn #photobooks #projectlife #digitalscrapbooking #pocketpages #TheLilypad #digitalscrapbooking #scrapb
There is something about mid-century design that has always appealed to me.
My friends and I used to scour the thrift shops for dresses just like those our grandmothers or mothers would have worn.
And when we were looking for a house a couple of years ago I would have loved a mid-century classic to do up and furnish with a retro twist (but every one we looked at was either perched right on top of the main faultline or needed at least $150,000 spent on it.)
I failed at t
In the remote north of New Zealand is a region called the Coromandel, famed for its beaches, forest (and its alternative economy centred on less than legal crops).
We spent several days there a few years back and, as always after a trip, I was looking for a quick but fun way to scrap the photos and create a travel album.
This week's new template album coming to the store at The Lilypad (and 50% for Wednesday) was the solution: Here's Cathedral Cove, where they filmed a fa
The first Friday of the month is BYOC (Build Your Own Collab) at The Lilypad. The sale comes with a special discount of 20% off all BYOC kits plus a special Buy More, Save More opportunity for even more savings. Lynn has three beautiful kits available for the sale: Buckle My Shoe Elements, Buckle My Shoe Papers and Buckle My Shoe Journal Cards. I think you'll agree with me that the color palette is cheery, fun, and perfect for a variety of layouts! Here are some of the ways
It's the first of the month, which means this week's new releases are part of the "Build Your Own Collection" (BYOC) event at The Lilypad.
All the designers have been creating with the same gorgeous Spring palette. 'Rummaging' among my files I discovered a special photo of Daughter-Two reading from one of our photobooks to a soft toy we made together: Luckily for me, with this summer's photos still to scrap, it worked with photos from the beach as well: ~ Lynn #photoshop #B
Last time we were in Paris it rained nearly every day. And it was smelly and it was dirty ... and it was fabulous. And despite everything, just about every photo we took I love (and want to scrap several times over).
EVEN the one with the fountain growing out of DD's head ... AND the one where the inclement weather meant she dressed even more like a very small hobo, causing the Parisians walking with their beautifully turned out and co-ordinated children to turn and stare
It's Wednesday and that means new designs from me all 50% off for one day at The Lilypad.
This week there are two new paperpacks: And a unique little element pack: ~ Lynn #digitalscrapbooking #digiscrap #travel #blending #scrapbooklayout #digitalpapers
I have been using these old edges created from vintage children's magazines and text fragments on so many of my layouts that I finally decided to package them up for the store. Here's just a few of the layouts I've used them on as a finishing touch: I used them on this layout too, which uses the Posy kit that is also coming to The Lilypad today: Also new are some big torn paper templates: And Arte Banale has put them all together in one absolutely beautiful page: But check ou
Spring is in the air and the gallery is blooming, we've had around a hundred pages in the Lilypad gallery this week and they are gorgeous. Just look at the range. We are taken down the memory lane with the dreamy look that March of Life is offering. Check it out for yourselves, the possibilities are endless, just see below for some ideas on how to use this kit for the memories from your childhood, to scrapping the photographs of wildlife and landscapes. First things first and
I love both traditional "arty" scrapping and documentary style / pocket scrapping, so this week's new products to arrive at The Lilypad are some of my own favourite creating supplies. And I had the perfect use for the Madras kit - grabbing a photo off Google Streetview in order to scrap about how we started going to "hot yoga for cool kiwis". We are still usually the least bendy and stretchy of everyone there but we hang out at the back of the room and are well and truly addi
It is officially Autumn here in New Zealand, although we are still having some wonderfully hot and sunny days.
But I do feel that I was robbed of summer after a disastrous attempt at a summer break in the sunny North.
After spending Christmas with family we got quite a way on our drive North before The Husband admitted to a nagging doubt that he hadn't actually booked the holiday home. A search of his laptop confirmed that we had nowhere to go, so we turned tail and head
Hello again! Diane here to bring you some inspiration using Lynn's newest BYOC (Build Your Own Collab) contributions to the big sale happening at The Lilypad this week-end (March 4 - 6). Lynn's Creative Team has been busy using her Daily Delight Papers, Daily Delight Elements and Daily Delight Cards in an exciting array of layouts. The colors are so pretty and lend themselves to a variety of subjects and styles. Let's take a look at a few! Sondra (Rosemarythyme) sets a che
