More Sweet Summertime!

Are you ready for summer???  I sure am and to kick it off right it seems appropriate to celebrate with more of Little Yellow Bicycle's Sweet Summertime collection.  I also created this page for the Gadget Girls series for Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine featuring the Button Studio from Epiphany Crafts.  You can enter to win one some of the button studios we used in the feature HERE.  I love the combination of these bright gorgeous paper and the custom buttons I created with the button studio.
I used some of the white daisies in the patterned paper from Little Yellow Bicycle to cut these buttons and now they look like little peppermint candies.  The string of five of them also creates a fun border element for my wallet-sized photos.
Used my cricut Feeling Groovy cartridge to cut the first part of my title and pop dotted the letters to pull them off the page a bit.
Finished off the title with a large ampersand from my old stash of Pebbles Inc. Chips and added some of the smaller thickers for contrast.  I used to go crazy for butterflies, but dragonflies are just as fun.

There is a sketch challenge at Little Yellow Bicycle this month with my sketch and any of their collections.  Hope you will jump in for a prize opportunity.  Click HERE for details,

Sweet Summertime Sketch Challenge

We've been so busy at Little Yellow Bicycle getting ready for CHA Summer 2011, that we got a little behind on our sketch challenges.  But, we are back this month with a sketch and an opportunity to win some of our gorgeous products and... we are featuring our brand new Sweet Summertime collection. Just hop over to the Little Yellow Bicycle blog or Facebook Page for the details.  Can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!!!
Summer in the Rocky Mountains can be a little unpredictable, especially with the weather, but that does not stop my family from getting out and having a good time.  Last summer we went boating on Lake Dillon, which has an altitude of about 9,000 feet. You can imagine it can be a little chilly, however, these gorgeous Sweet Summertime papers still capture the feeling of this exciting summer day and may even cast a bit of a warmer glow upon it.
The chipboard shapes with glitter accents in this collection add just the right amount of summer fun and include a tiny bit of glitter to make them pop off the page.  I added a fresh verse sticker to this cute chipboard cloud to add another sentiment about our wonderful day.
I love the combination of the Sweet Summertime chipboard kite with the journaling card.  The tail of the kite winds around the journaling card and photo to tie them together beautifully.
The journaling cards in this collection are not just for writing.  I used the beautiful shape and color on this one to matte the wallet sized photo so it would stand out just a bit more from the other two photos and an additional sentiment to my title, "Happy Summer."

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Hope you jump into the challenge at LYB.

Nikki Sivils and her friend Elmer's

The Design Team at Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker had an opportunity to pair up with Elmer's to make some fun projects!  They sent us all kinds of fun adhesive to create with for our blog hop today.  If you hop to all the Design Team Diva's blogs, leave a comment and then hop back to Nikki's blog, there is a prize opportunity.  Hope you will join in the fun!
First up is a page with Nikki's We are Family collection.  I just love the kites on the background paper and of course the ribbons.  I was going for an eclectic look for this photo of my daughter, so I added one of Nikki's crown album sheets that I covered with some red fabric using Elmer's Fabric and Paper Glue.
The tree is from Nikki's We Are Family Cut Up Sheets.  I used some of Elmer's Foam Tape to pop it up and then added some of Nikki's stickers and ribbon for good measure.
I think Nikki's Burlap Buttons are my all time favorite.  They are so unique looking and easy to apply.
I had to make a two-page project with Nikki's Beatrice collection.  I love the whimsical feel and the little rolling hills made a perfect background for my project.  I cut up her square die cut page to create the scallops at the top of my project.

Follow the hop to the next Design Team Diva's Blog.
