Lisa's Designs Design Team

Let Your Artistic Nature Fly

Welcome to the Team Princess bi-weekly blog hop for Scrapping With Lisa’s Designs.  This week Team Princess is working on the Blue Bird from the Birds Pattern set. However, there are a few challenges that go along with the bluebird.  We were not allowed to create the bird in blue, nor were we allowed to create a card or a layout.  We hope this shows the real versatility in Lisa’s patterns.

One really nice thing about PaperPiecing with Lisa’s patterns is you can cut them out with a machine, or you cancut them out by hand.  She also providesa digital image of each as well. 

Our blog hop starts here,  http://scrappingwithlisadesignsdt.blogspot.com/, so please start from the beginning and spread your wings to fly from one blogto the next and check out the wonderful designs by team princess.

I made a centerpiece for my mom to go with the pot of flowers with the bluebird I made for the Scrapping with Lisa's Hop last week.   I hand cut my pieces for my bird on a yellow bling cardstock.   I pieced her together and used honeycomb tissue on her tummy to give her a dimensional look.  And of course, I had to use stickles around her to give her a little bling.  I got a little nest and glued it on a stick.  Added some grass and eggs of course, then put some flowers and a little ribbon around the nest.

Thank you for stopping by today and please remember to visit my Design team sisters blogs.  We all look forward to your comments, as this is how we all improve our work.

Here are the links to my sister’s blogs.

REMEMBER - this needs to be more than just a card or a layout. As Design Team Members we are trying to show the versatility of Lisa's wonderful designs.  So, step outside the cage, and let the artistic nature fly.
