Fun with Puns: Layout and a Card Set with Little Yellow Bicycle

I’m back today with more projects from the August creative kit at My Creative Scrapbook. This kit featured the Splash collection from Little Yellow Bicycle and is such a happy paper line, perfect for summer.

We live in the South and the local spraygrounds are a favorite hangout for kids of all ages. My little boy is 3 and he just loves to go play in the water. The sprayground is basically a bunch of sprinklers, and, really, what could be more fun when the temperatures hover around 90 degrees?


I love the big die cut circle with the colorful scalloped edges and wanted to mimick that look with a half-circle banner. To make the banner, I punched circles, then folded them over a length of twine.


At the bottom of the page, I used some of the LYB vellum strips to make little pennants. I backed the vellum with white cardstock then wrapped it around hat pins.
 

I also used the collection to make a pair of summer cards. This Splash line had the cutest “fabric favorites" embellishments. The bathing suits called to me and I knew right away that I would want to make coordinating boy and girl cards.
 
For the boy card, I made a tag from patterned paper then affixed the swimming trunks and a sentiment. I made pennants with the washi tape and hat pins as described in the layout above.
 

For the girl version, I used the same base and made a tag from coordinating patterned paper. To complete the card, I added the swimsuit and umbrella from the fabric fabrics and a sentiment with letter stickers from Jillibean Soup. Love these alphabeans.


I love making coordinating cards. It makes fast work of a card set to use similar designs and the same card base.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend.
