Time for a Ride with Little Yellow Bicycle!!

Wohoo!

Warmer temps on the rise, a bit of sunshine and our Little Yellow Bicycle is all we need this week!

This week we're excited to welcome a new product sponsor to the mix...Little Yellow Bicycle! 

Little Yellow Bicycle or LYB wants you the crafter to take your imagination for ride! And this week we'll be working with their new Cupcake Love collection! Cupcake Love's perfectly decorated papers and delicious embellishments are made from scratch with the finest ingredients! Each embellishment is freshly sprinkled and glittered to order, with care and love baked right in!


Join us all week long as we share Little Yellow Bicycle's Sweet Cupcake Love Collection with you!! Up first...Lindsay Wahl as a layout that proclaims her love!! And Designer Kristen Swain made a Tussey Mussey that isn't too fussy to make!lol (Wait till you see how she used the LYB doilies!!)

I am in love...
Designer: Lindsay Wahl

Supplies:
Glue Arts Adhesives: 3-d combo pac, Adhesive Squares, Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac, Mini Adhesive Squares, Ribbon adhesive
Little Yellow Bicycle Cupcake Love: 6x6 Decorative edge cardstock, Canvas borders, Chipboard shapes, Epoxy chipboard buttons, Heart stick pins, Journal tablet, Patterned paper

Other:
Alpha stickers: American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Copic
Punch: Marvy
Ribbon: May Arts

Instructions:
1. Begin with one 4"x 6" photo and six 2"x 2" photos (I made five of them black and white so they'd stand out).
2. Cut canvas border in half horizontally. Adhere bottom half 1/2" from the bottom of the page. Use ribbon adhesive (I used two strips because of the width of the ribbon) to adhere the ribbon approximately 2" above the canvas border. Now adhere the scalloped half of the canvas border. The scallops should touch the middle seam of the ribbon.
3. Adhere the 2"x 2" photos using the Pro. For the color photo, I backed the photo with a piece of patterned paper that was 2 1/2" square. I used the Pro to adhere the photo to the paper. Then, I used the UcutIt foam to make this photo stand out from the page.
4. Adhere your 4"x 6" photo to the scalloped journaling circle with the Pro. Adhere both pieces to the cardstock, approximately 1" from the right edge of the page.
5. Ink the edges of the February die cut and adhere with UcutIt foam. Add journaling.
6. Adhere the buttons to the side of the photo. I used the Mini Adhesive Squares on the buttons, but I raised every 3rd button with a piece of the UcutIt foam. It just gives added dimension and interest. Repeat this with the buttons at the top left corner and bottom right corner of the page. I also added two buttons to the small color 2" square photo.
7. Using Adhesive Squares, adhere chipboard title "love" to the page. Add alphabet letters to complete the title.
8. Add heart pins to the ribbon.


Tussey Mussey 
Designer: Kristen Swain

Supplies: 
Glue Arts adhesives- Perma Tac and Glue Glide Pro, Extreme Adhesive Squares, Adhesive Squares, Mini Adhesive Squares, UCutIt foam
Papers/stickers/diecuts/chipboard shapes/doilies/pins- Little Yellow Bicycle
Buttons/twine-craft supply
heart ribbon- May Arts
Seam Binding- www.etsy.com/shop/scrapinkris
lace- walmart

Tip- this sweet cone Tussey Mussey would be a fun way to give treats on valentine's day, or make it into a spring gift bag. Simply add candy, chocolates and small goodies to it, then hang on your family's chairs at the table. Decorations and gifts all in one!
Tussey Mussey Instructions

1. Wrap cone using diecut paper, then adhere with Extreme Adhesive Squares.
2. Punch holes in each side of top of cone, then tie on ribbon.
3. Punch out shapes and adhere together with UCutIt foam.
4. Adhere shapes to cone using Extreme Adhesive Squares.
5. To make doily roses, cut out excess paper from hearts, cutting in half as well. 
6. Roll roses from inside out, I use a quilling tool to keep from crushing the delicate lace. Adhere together with mini adhesive squares.
7. Attach to cone using Adhesive Squares.
8. Finish design with crinkled seam ribbon, heart buttons, twine, chipboard cupcake, pearl, and pins, tuck in bit of lace using Adhesive Squares to adhere lace to cone.
9.Finish bottom of cone with bit of lace wrapped around and adhered with Adhesive Squares, adding on chipboard heart with the adhesive squares as well.


As is traditional....we would love to offer you a chance to win some of this amazing Little Yellow Bicycle Cupcake Love Collection! In fact....we have not only the papers...but just about every single embellishment for the entire collection!! It's truly one amazing prize pack!
