Little Yellow Bicycle CHA Release Part 1


Little Yellow Bicycle has done it again with some fabulous new children's collections.  Today I am sharing a couple of projects with the Fern & Forest Girl collection.  Sprinkled with a little fairy dust, it is perfect for all of the little girls in us...

My daughter is so much fun to photograph.  We were playing with her glamorous sunglasses and boa and caught this picture.  I paired it with a large shooting star because it seems like she might be headed in this direction - LOL.

I used a banner (green) in the Paper Crafting Kit and traced the design onto various patterned papers to create the tail for the star.  Then I tucked foam tape underneath to make it pop up a bit.
Love how you can use the journal cards without having to actually write on them.  They make wonderful design elements just as they are.
A little cluster of stars and banners finish off the design.
I used my scoring tool to create this accordion lampshade.  It was a lot of folding, but the effect is really fun.  The little chipboard fairy and flowers make a great design that would brighten up many little girls' rooms.
I used one of my old Fiskars punches to add the scallops to the bottom layer of the lampshade.  I bought the very inexpensive lamp and shade at Walmart.
I have more projects with brand new collections to share from both Little Yellow Bicycle and Simple Stories.

Have a great day!
