Officially a Biker Chick!

I am ecstatic to share that I am joining the talented design team at Little Yellow Bicycle and can now call myself a Biker Chick!  Who can help but smile at such a fun title.  My husband thought it sounded really sexy until I told him it was a scrapbook company called Little Yellow Bicycle instead of Big Harley Motorcycles.  He just sighed and said congratulations...  It is such a treat to design for such an amazing company.  I cannot wait to share all of the wonderful product and ideas you will see from LYB this year.  Below is a project I created with the Brand New Elizabeth Park collection that ships to stores next week.  Please put this collection on your radar, because it is truly wonderful!
This is a photo of my daughter playing around at the park and I thought the Elizabeth Park collection with lovely shades of pink and fluttering friends perfectly captured the whimsical nature of my little girl.  I especially love the canvas sticker borders with the pink polka dots and decorative edge.  Attaching them to the top and bottom of my page really creates a fun focus on the photo.
LYB makes the cutest dimensional stickers and these layered butterflies are so much fun.  I used some floss to stitch the butterfly trail and added some bling for the body of the winged embellishments.  LYB also adds the most beautiful details to their patterned papers and if you look closely at the plaid, you can see the beautiful white design on the edge of the paper.
LYB added a brand new embellishment to this collection called a paper flower kit.  Do you have a hard time folding your own accordion flowers?  Well...these beautiful little gems come pre-scored and ready to assemble.  So easy...my daughter could make them herself.
I am always a huge fan of stickers and as usual, LYB has their wonderful favorite pieces sticker sheet with beautiful senteiments like this one.  They even added the bling on the sticker for you and some of the other stickers come with tiny buttons already attached.  Absolutely love this collection!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend -
