Getting Creative With Our "Be My Guest" Line of Patterned Paper

Sure, our Be My Guest line of patterned paper is beautiful when used on its own as a background or to mat a photo!  But there are many ways to get creative with our patterned paper!

Here are just a few examples from our design team!

Lisa Dickinson made this adorable card by cutting strips from the papers His, Sewing Room, Home Sweet Home, Tea Towel, and Game Night.  She wove the strips together and adhered the ends down.  A chipboard heart is covered with a piece of Home Sweet Home, the edges inked with a Brown Sugar Ink Pad, and topped with a pink Vintage Sew-on button.

Michelle McCord created this stunning sun accent by rolling pieces of the Home Sweet Home paper to make rays.  The sun is the JBS Seal Stamp using a Chili Powder Paint Dabber and then cut out.  The middle of the sun was punched out using a circle punch and gently lifted to give some texture.

Here's another creative one from Lisa Dickinson.  The Circle Die-Cut is a great background for the pictures and sentiments of the layout.  To further the theme of time and ages going by, Lisa cut out the number squares from the Game Night paper, and assembled them randomly onto a sewn grid.  Another great idea?  Use a Vintage Sew-On Button button to accent a letter "o" as Lisa did here.

We hope this post will give you and your customers inspiration to use our Be Our Guest line in many creative ways!
