Jillibean Soup: Coconut Lime









{Reported by: Shelley Haganman}



       
I am so excited to bring to you this review of Jillibean Soup's "Coconut Lime Soup"! Jillibean Soup is a scrapbook paper and embellishment company started by Jill Yegerlehner, a scrapper her self! Jillibean Soup offers fresh, fun, and sweet papers, stickers, alphas, die cuts, made of 100% recycled stock! The colors and graphics are so happy and whimsical and just perfect for any project. Jillibean does have a blog that keeps you updated on sales, new lines, and gorgeous works from their design team! You can also follow them on Facebook and Pinterest!

Ease of use: Well this is a no-brainer! I LOVE the colors and patterns and graphics of this line. Everything is color coordinated so you really can not go wrong. I love the sturdiness of the paper. Really cute alpha stickers to got with the line and love the 6x6 mini pads of paper! Great for card making!

Construction/Durability: I appreciate nice heavy stock paper that is still easy to use and manipulate and Jillibean Soup offers this. I had no problem tearing or wrapping the paper on my projects!

Usefulness: Well let me just tell you I found several different ways to use this line and thought of many more. It kind of had a garden, homegrown, spring theme but it would be so easy to expand the papers and stickers to so many other themes! I like that in a product! You get more mileage for your money!

Cost effectiveness: Quite comparable to other products available out there that have similar characteristics.

What I liked: The sturdiness of the paper, the colors and patterns (so cute), and I always love that they put patterns and colors together for you and you can just play and create! I love that!
The options of stickers, dies, and papers in general were just dang cute! Loved the soup labels and had lots of ideas for those! :)

What I didn't like: Well.....nothing to be quite honest!

What I made:

The gingham is great. It goes really well with the other papers. They make cute papers, stamps, and other things that all go together well. This line is really nice for spring and summer. The colors and papers look very high quality.

This is an adorable line! I love the "jar" theme, the colors, and I think I need a full-size version of that family rules journal card that you used for your frame.
TFS this cool line, and thanks for the chance to win!

The strawberries paper and jar stamps are really cute. I think that I would use these a lot, for many different purposes. I'm going to learn to make jam, so it would be perfect for me. I like that you said that the paper is nice and thick.

I love Jillibean Soup - their new alpha stickers and soup labels are great. Their Sweet and Soup line was one of my favorites ever - I've hoarded a few of the papers because I know I'll want to use them a lot, such fun colors and patterns.
