LYB Swoon Mini Album and Cycling Team Call

Little Yellow Bicycle has a beautiful NEW wedding/anniversary/love collection called Swoon.  It has so many beautiful elements including the foil paper that I used to create the cover of this mini album.
I have not scrapped many of my wedding photos, just a few here and there, but the bulk of the photos sit in a photo album - untouched, so I thought it was time to get them out.  I did however want to keep the album simple.  Here, I documented the event with one of the Swoon Journal Cards and embellished with the Paper Flower Kits
Picture of us signing the marriage certificate with the Reverend who married us. I love the angle of the shot and thought the sentiment from the Swoon Page Kit was a good addition.
You can see the notes of the wedding march song in this paper.  I used some of the Swoon Page Kit elements that come with this collection for this page in the album.
My husband's parents. I love that this collection is all shades of white, black and gray so that the bits of color from our wedding pop against the papers.
The Swoon Collection has a beautiful butterfly motif throughout the collection.  I added a few here for good measure.  The Fresh Verse stickers also make it easy to add sentiments like this one about our wedding party.
This photo was taken as we were heading back to the gondola to take us back down the mountain to the reception and again I used the beautiful foil paper.

Swoon Cycling Team Call


 Come Ride with Little Yellow Bicycle!

Here's what we're looking for:
With each new collection we like to invite a few new designers (about 3-5 per collection) to come design for us.  We ask Cycling Team members to commit to a month of designing after the collection is released. In return, we'll send you some free product and shamelessly promote you along with ourselves on our blog and facebook page.  Read the details below:

1) Make at least one project with what we send you - a layout, some cards, a mini album, an altered item...whatever makes you happy!

2) Send us some pictures of it, and a little write-up or how-to of how you created it.

3) Post it on your blog, facebook page and any online galleries you belong to. We'll put it here on our blog too, of course!

That's it!

Tryouts for this team are starting RIGHT NOW!
If you are interested, please send us three (3) samples of your best work (preferably with LYB products because that is what we like to look at most, however it's not a deal breaker if you send something else) to  Also, if you have previously designed for a Cycling Team, please feel free to apply again!  We'll announce the NEW Swoon Cycling Team on February 28th.  Please include your contact information (address, phone and blog) in your email.

And then we'll ask you to hop on that Little Yellow Bicycle and pedal your heart out!

Hope that you will check out the Cycling Team Call!

Have a wonderful weekend -

Liz you were such a beautiful, beautiful bride... and yes, the Principal was handsome but we won't give him big fat head-drome. :)
Really love what you've done with the mini album, so perfect. :)
