Lily Bee Urban Autumn Blog Hop


Welcome to the blog hop for Urban Autumn, a Lily Bee Design collection by Amy Heller! This is Amy's first collection, and I am thrilled and honored that she gave me the chance to get my scrappy little fingers on it already!

The first time I set eyes on Urban Autumn, I told Amy, "It's so you." It really is! On her layouts, Amy often mixes bold elements with softer ones, and she has such a way with color. Her design aesthetic is evident in Urban Autumn. Maybe it's because Amy is not just a designer but a scrapbooker that she knows the way to my scrappy heart.
There is so much to love in this collection, but I must admit, these cards are my favorites! I used a bunch of them on this layout that I created with Urban Autumn: 
I also worked in flair and wood veneer embellishments from the collection. Those arrows -- I need MORE!
