Loving that Sunshine!!

time to capture it!  Check out these projects that I made with the Little Yellow Bicycle "Lemonade" line.

First up- this mini book!  The Paper envelopes and inserts, binder rings, grommets and String all come in this adorable kit for $9.49.
first I inked the grommets with my Old Olive distress ink pad & then put together the envelopes according to the easy instructions inside the packaging of the album **you will need a Crop-a-dile or an eyelet setter of some kind to attach the grommets and string. Next - I added a few "word" & "Image" stickers from the same well as some chipboard & journal cards from the matching accents!  The chipboard and image stickers even have glitter on them (hard to see in the photo - but sooo great up close!)

I printed a bunch of 3x4 photos from a Sunday adventure at the beach and there you go...Sunshine in a mini-book:-)
Then because I was still having fun - and had to use up the great leftover embellishments, here are a couple of layouts!

the edge of the paper is the Bracket border punch from Fiskars, and then the zig zig border is a Canvas border sticker from the same lemonade line.  They are self-adhesive so they just stick on, soo easy - as well the pennant banner in a photo above is from the same package:-)

check out that distressed edge! I used the Zutter Distezz-it machine on my cardstock for this layout...and I am in LOVE!! It's noisy, but soo great the way it just messes up the paper.... I think I will be adding a new toy to my collection shortly!

I hope you collect a little sunshine for your layouts & projects today and feel inspired:-)
