Pages & A Card!

Day 3 of May Arts / Little Yellow Bicycle Blog Week

Pages & A Card!

Well we were so lucky to have the opportunity to swap with Little Yellow Bicycle!!  Their products are SO fun! I started out with a scrapbook page.



The paper is from their Freshprint Clothesline collection (canary damask).



I used some Fuchsia 5/8” scallop edge satin, and made several loops under the photo & tucked a doily in.



The mini banner and epoxy stickers are from their new Elizabeth Park collection!



I layered more of the fuchsia satin on top of the yellow twill stripe ribbon.

Next I have a card-



I used the solid/wrinkle ribbon in periwinkle to wrap a cardstock panel. I used a few strips of glue arts ribbon adhesive on both sides & it worked great!



You can see what a smooth edge it created!



The epoxy stickers are from the Elizabeth Park collection & are so pretty!



One more scrapbook page!

This paper is ‘bird on a wire’ from the Elizabeth Park collection



I used a fun fabric frame for my photo and more of those great epoxy stickers (there are a LOT on the sheet!)



I used the 1.5” satin pleats with the 1/8” light blue velvet, which was a great match to this line!



I tucked a couple of stick pins into the ribbon & added some epoxy stickers for the centers!

I’ve had so much fun playing with these beautiful products from Little Yellow Bicycle!!

I hope you’ve been inspired to pair up your May Arts ribbon with their lovely new Elizabeth Park line!

    I have ALWAYS loved LYB, but I am really loving what you did with your ribbons on these pages! I am definitely going to try that loop technique, and how you placed a thin velvet ribbon on the gathered one—so lovely!!! That card is AWESOME!

    I love the satin loops you made under the picture & then tucked the doily in… and I’m always a sucker for banners!

    Your card is fantastic. I really love how you wrapped the whole panel with the ribbon, I have never tried this, but I really like it! The epoxy stickers are the perfect finish!

    Your second layout just reminds me of fresh & clean…. love it! I’m really loving all the epoxy stickers you get. The fabric frame around the picture is lovely!

    Sorry to ramble so much!
