Hi again! It’s Wendy Sue, back with you again today with another fun “Hello Spring” project! You know, one of the things I love most about Little Yellow Bicycle is how there are so many coordinating options with each line. I think I mentioned that last week, but it’s really true, and it’s worth mentioning again! It just makes the whole process of creating – no matter what I’m working on…cards, layouts, packaging, whatever – go so much more smoothly and I always love the end result when everything matches perfectly!
Whenever I find myself in a creative “rut,” for lack of a better word, I always pull out a packet of coordinating items and just put together a few cards. It always kicks my mind into “creative mode,” and I always end up with a card, or set of cards, I can add to my files and use at a later date when I need a fun card to send to someone. But that’s not the only time I like to make cards. Sometimes when I have oodles of fun product I just can’t wait to look for photos to coordinate, so I delve in and put together cards. Or when I find a super fun embellishment that I just can’t wait to use, I will probably put together a fun card. So, as you can see, as much as I love (love, love, love) scrapbooking…I’m a total card-making fanatic as well!
As I was sorting through all of the bright, happy, fun “Hello Spring” product the sweet folks at LYB sent my way, I just couldn’t wait to use the felt flower stickers. I used one on my layout last week, but I just had to use them again – and that’s how this little card set came to be.
I was able to use several different papers from the 6x6 paper pad, as well as some of the journaling tickets and these super fun banner stickers too! I added a bit of machine stitching (of course) on the right side of each card. And I used pop-dots (my other addiction) to pop up the banner word stickers. I love the way these cards came together so quickly, with the same basic design and elements. I’m anxious to find an excuse to send one of these happy cards to a friend – I know it will make someone’s day very soon!
