The Jillibean Soup "Minestrone" line is DEEEEE-licious!
I had a lot of fun creating some layouts with this paper... it's so versatile! Autumn themed photos work great, but you could also use springtime pictures too.
My "Fly" layout is hybrid. I used Photoshop Elements to add a "vellum" spot on my larger photo where I could journal. I also created a smaller photo strip at the top in Elements.
For the "Look at Me Now" layout, I created my own template using circle shapes to make the wavy photo strip. I used 3 4x6 photos on this layout.
There is a sheet of coordinating minestrone paper with lots of fun little embellishments-- many of them work well for lunch box notes for kids. You could also creatively use them to feature some journaling on a layout from a mom to a child. I made several note cards that I'll be able to put in my girls' backpacks or lunch bags.
What draws you to this line of papers?
