Little Yellow Bicycle Layouts

 Hello Bloggers!  Post number 2 of 3 for The Scrapbooking Studio/Moline here for you showing some more of the Little Yellow Bicycle and Maya Road product goodness I received to work with this month!  I just love this background page for these engagement photos of my son and now-daughter-in-law!  The page was actually designed around the great elements printed on the paper!
See that title lettering?  It started out as naked chipboard, painted white, then stamped with red Stazon using a flourish stamp.  Pins were added at each end of the title block for some added dimension.
                                                     A detail shot...
 The paper had a stitch pattern printed in white.  The red eyelets and red/white twine made it pop off the page and then I thought it needed "Two Tickets to Paradise" since it was their engagement, after all!
 The edges of the brown photo mats were stamped in Azure Stazon with a flourish stamp and the red and white paisley mat was corner punched for a little elegance...
 The next layout was the same son as the layout above, only he was ONE YEAR OLD!   I loved working with the "5 Things" stickers and envelopes ~ they were so much fun and it gave me a great opportunity to express how I feel about him at this age.
 The envelope journaling stickers were just screaming to become a banner, so I figured out a way to make it work on the page.  The insides of the envelopes were plain white, so 1.75" circle and 1.5" scallop circle punches were used to layer brown and patterned papers onto the envelope flaps.  Ribbons were layered and stapled to the banner and added under the mini rosette, which was created with a 3/4" strip, scored every 1/8" then edge punched and inked blue.  The rosette was glued to a larger scallop punched piece and topped with a de-bossed circle sticker.
And lastly, a detail shot of the center treatment.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Be Inspired!  Jules
