Little Yellow Bicycle Mini Album and Giveaway

I'm back today with another project as a guest designer for Little Yellow Bicyle's new Paradise line. And, wow, what a fun week I had playing with the Paradise Medley Album.

The medley album is an assortment of tags, envelopes and inserts and comes with instructions and color photos to show examples of ways to put the album together.   It's easy to follow along with the suggestions or you can do your own thing. I used the album to document a trip we took to the beach just after my son turned 1 and added several embellishments from the Paradise collection. 



Before starting the album, I did a little prep work.  I added brads and twine closures to the two envelopes and machine stitched a little border around each tag, page and envelop.

I used a chipboard title block to make a wee little cover to the album.  I covered the back with a little strip of patterned paper, used a cropadile to punch a hole then added the chipboard title to the album. Then I set about embellishing each page.

Isn't this a beautiful line?  Paradise is one of 6 collections that LYB is showcasing at CHA in the coming week. You can find details about all the new lines on the Little Yellow Bicycle blog.  I love seeing all the new collections!

Now for the giveaway: Little Yellow Bicyle donated one of these Paradise medley albums for a giveaway on my blog.  All you have to do is leave a comment. If you're not a follower of my blog, I'd love to have you join me and I'll be happy to follow you in return. Comments will be open until midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 1 and the winner chosen by random draw. I'll announce the winner here on my blog next Friday, Feb. 3.
