Today a few of our Biker Chicks wanted to share some summer projects with some of our favoraite LYB summer collections to celebrate how we are spending our time. Biker Chick Corrie Jones made this wonderful multimedia page with our Splash Collection.
We had the most amazing week at the beach this year. Well, every year is an amazing at the beach, but this year we tried something new - 4 wheel driving on the beach. It was one of the coolest things I have ever done. We were supposed to be looking for wild horses and we did see about 20, but my favorite part was being out in sun in a Jeep, driving all over. I HAD to use Splash for this page. So I scraped together the last pieces I had for this page. I love the colors in this collection. It is definitely one of my favorites for this summer!
Splash supplies used:
SPL-133 6x6 decorative edge double sided textured cardstock
SPL-305 paper crafting kit
SPL-230 clear cut shapes

SPL-160 vellum tape

Biker Chick Liz Qualman created this mini album with our Sweet Summertime collection for publication in the 2012 summer issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine. You can find specific instructions for creating the album there, but Liz included a few tips here in the post...
Instructions for the Cover:
Even though most of the work was done with the precut elements of the album, I wanted to give it a handmade feel with the custom stitching and twine.
- Use the blue precut banner paper and backstitch around the design.
- Cut smaller shape in red paper to mirror the design
- Add “bring on the sunshine” sentiment from the Fresh Verse Stickers
- Add chipboard pinwheels and jewel stickers
- Add Chipboard Spinner Sticker
- Swirl the Peapod bakers twine around the design and glue into place with clear glue
My family and I had such a great day on the lake and the colors of the Sweet Summertime Collection perfectly compliments the colors of our day.
I love the way twine looks wrapped around pages and cards and thought it would be fun to wrap this mini album page. I also love how you can twirl the longer ends of the twine around a project, so I used the Tombow glue to stick the longer ties from the bow in a swirled pattern.
For this page, I wanted to combine the chipboard sentiment with the fresh verse sentiment to capture the moment of my kids snuggling in the boat. The journal card makes a fun photo mat as well as a way to add some specific details from the day. My husband did a great job of captain and this page is meant to honor his part in the event. 4 x 6 photos were just a tad too big for the chipboard album, but I found if I cropped them to be 4 x 5, they were a perfect fit.
I love scrapbook pages with multiple photos and wanted to create the same effect for this page, so I added three wallet-sized photos to show more of the event. The Tear Out Ticket sentiment was a great photo mat to tie the page and photos together.
Had to end with a simple page about my son and since the banner page is pointy, I added a lot of round elements to balance the effect.
I tend to love larger journal cards, because they can be a great focal point in a mini album and take the place of a photo. This one was a fun way to add a thought and then include embellishments that might over power a photo, but not the journal card like the kite and the cloud. The twine looks fun tied through the chipboard button.
