Very exciting around here at LYB...because tomorrow (that's Tuesday, March 15th) we ship Elizabeth Park! One look at this bright and cheery collection and you just can't help but think about Spring! And since the snowflakes were flying once again here in CT today (not complaining, I really do love the snow, but seriously, enough is enough!) ... in my opinion, Spring can't come soon enough.
To underscore that point, and to WELCOME the Elizabeth Park collection to your local scrapbook store ... and hopefully your scraproom ;)... I thought I'd share this lovely layout from Biker Chick Liz Qualman, aptly titled "Welcome Spring" (do you think Liz is a little tired of the white stuff too?)!
But wait ... what's a new collection plus a new layout from Liz without a Sketch Challenge?
This month we would love to see pages with our BRAND new Elizabeth Park collection, however we know many of you are just now getting your hands on the Twig collection and still want to see plenty of pages with it as well.
This month Liz wanted to emphasize Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments and especially the awesome canvas sticker borders. They are available with many of our collections and add great color and texture to a project. The Elizabeth Park collection includes this super cute birds on a wire canvas border sticker which was a fun compliment to the photos of Liz's daughter playing on the ropes at the park.
It's fun to combine the different LYB embellishments to create a unique title. "Welcome, Spring! Enjoy" is a combination of Elizabeth Park Fresh Verse and Chipboard Stickers. No need for alphabets when you have wonderful sentiments built right into the embellishments.
One of the newest and most exciting Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments are these gorgeous flowers included in the Elizabeth Park Paper Flower Kit. If you love the look of homemade flowers, but have no idea how to make them or the energy to figure it out, these beautiful little gems come pre-cut and scored to make it easy to fold in all the right places. They also layer perfectly for added dimension.
Who can get enough of these gorgeous dimensional stickers with butterflies??? The added layers of patterned paper make these an extra special embellishment. Adding a bit of florist wire for antennae, bling for the body and floss for the trail easily make these fluttery friends come to life.
