He Loves Me!! He Loves Me Not!!

He Loves Me...for sure!!!

We're finishing off our week with Little Yellow Bicycle with a final celebration of Cupcake Love!!

All week long we've shared with you creative ways to use this sweet and cupcake filled line. Today Designers Leslie Ashe and Cheri Wenger proclaim their love for their sweethearts, family and friends with beautiful, unique layouts and a card that if a friend sent to me....well would make me feel very special...don't you agree?!

He Love Me Layout
Designer: Leslie Ashe

Supplies:
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro with Extreme Tac cartridge

-stack the other 2 borders on on top

-using the LYB Small Shape Die Cut, place 2 of your 3 pictures on top using Glue Arts Extreme Tac adhesive and place directly under borders
-leave a small gap between first 2 pictures and last one (you will journal here)
-place last photo close to the right side, also under borders.
-at the top of your border, place the LYB chipboard "LOVE" (sort of to the right)
-using letter stickers, spell out "he" and add an " 's" to the "love" chipboard

-using letter stickers, spell out "me" on the bottom right of your last photo.

-right above your borders and "love", place a small heart strip cut from the shape die cut paper you have your first 2 photo's on.
-above those, place 2 scallop tags (it's one circle, you cut it in half to get 2)
-at the top left side, with a black pen, write "he loves me not?, he loves me! he loves me not?"
-place border stickers at bottom of first 2 photos, then on last photo (you're going to stack the white scallop then the pink on top)
-on the 2nd photo - to the right, add heart chipboard and a heart button using Extreme Mini Squares:

-on the last photo, add another heart button under your "me!"
-add a tiny strip of patterned paper on top of border stickers on all photo's.
-tie a bow with pink ribbon and add to left of layout.

-stick 2 LYB heart stickpens under
-at top of layout (on borders), using the line High Tack Crop & Glue, place a strip of ribbon. Do this same step for the right side where ribbon will go (under love)

-journal in your gap

Love these Girls Layout
Designer: Cheri Wenger


Supplies:
Glue Arts: Glue Glider™ Pro with High tac and extreme adhesive, U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam and Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares

Sakura Quickie Glue pen
Little Yellow Bicycle Cupcake Love Collection: Lollipop Stripe with Glitter CS; Canvas Border Stickers; Flower Button Dots; Favorite Pieces Cardstock Stickers; Heart Cut-Out Sheet with Glitter; Chipboard Shapes and Journal Tablet
The Paper Company: 12 x 12 Sea Glass Metallic CS

Assorted Buttons; rhinestone brad (Stampin’ Up!®); photo; black marker


Instructions:
1.Cut out Love Banners from CS sheet. 
2. Diecut letters in fonts of choice for title and swirly flourishes using personal diecut machine. Gather other supplies you want to use on layout.
3. Postion border strips, title banners, swirl flourishes, matted photo, journaling sheet, flower chipboard, ribbons and layered Flower Button dot on top of metallic sea glass cardstock.
4. Cut out thin strip from Lollipop Strip with Glitter CS and cut out stickers from sheet leaving backing on for positioning purposes. DESIGNER TIP: Figure out positioning of elements and take digital photos for reference when removing and gluing items onto layout.
5. Remove backing from border strips or apply extreme adhesive directly to back side of bottom border. Carefully align with top of layout and slowly apply to layout. You won't be able to reposition so be sure of placement. Adhere 2nd border strip on top using Pro with Extreme Adhesive.
6. Cut (4) 2" strips of pink ribbon. Use Pro with high tac or extreme adhesive and apply it to back of ribbons using scrap paper beneath.
7. Apply U-Cut-It to back of L & V banners to raise these up. 

Add O & E banners with Extreme Adhesive and Pro. TIP: you can use your Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares packaging to mark placement while you are adding adhesive to the back of the banner.
8. Use pro and high tac adhesive to attach large flourish to layout. Add matted photo on top at an angle, but don’t press down left corner yet!
9. Remove backing from stickers & add snap shot and date to layout. Wrap excess from date sticker around back side of layout.
10. Place thin strip, flourish and chipboard flower over journal sheet to add journaling to sheet prior to attaching to layout underneath photo edge and other elements. (This way if you make a mistake you can fix on sheet before attaching permanently to the layout.
11. Attach strip at an angle over top with Pro and add adhesive button flower on top. Use high tac to attach flourishes and chipboard flower. Use Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares to attach all buttons to layout.
12. Use cutting knife to make a slit to insert rhinestone brad onto top flourish.
