As soon as I saw the Little Yellow Bicycle "Just Because" line, I fell in love with it. The colors, patterns, accents, everything about it! My first layout is of my son Reid, I have always loved this picture and the colors in his pajamas are a perfect match for this line. I incorporated the patterned paper and vellum tape from the collection. I also added Maya Road acrylic accents, covering the word "love" and the arrow in patterned paper. I stitched around the edges using a black American Crafts pen. The word "you" was created using Martha Stewart's Swiss Dot Alphabet, a clearance find at Scrapdoodles! I mounted them on red cardstock to make them stand out a bit more.
My second layout is of my daughter Baylee. I hadn't originally planned to use a beach photo, but the essence of her spirit was so perfectly captured in this picture and was a match for the quote on the patterned paper. I again incorporated the Little Yellow Bicycle "Just Because" line, though these papers have a completely different look from the first layout. This line is so versatile! I again used Maya Road acrylic accents, covering the heart in patterned paper and embellishing with a flower from my supplies. The ribbon adds the perfect amount of sparkle!
My last two projects were created using the scraps remaining from my layouts. First, a card using vellum words from the collection, and second, a magnet created using the Maya Road acrylic accent. I attached a self-adhesive magnet to the back of the acrylic shape after covering and embellishing it.
Happy Valentine's Day to you all and make sure you stop by the store to pick up this adorable collection and stock up on Maya Road acrylic and chipboard accents!
