I am very happy to announce that I am a guest designer at Little Yellow Bicycle for this month. I was sent the "Twig" collection to work on and although I am not used to working with blues and greens, I actually had fun doing this project and surprisingly... I loved the end result.
Do you have pictures that have distracting elements in the background? Using Frames are perfect way to hide those imperfections in your photos. Scrapbooking memories isn’t always about having the perfect design or the perfect photos. There is always a way for you to include your special photos (whether it be perfect or not) in your albums. In this page, I used the Twig frames to eliminate the clutter in my photos.
The Twig line has so many beautiful embellishments that it is not hard at all to create a page with so many details in so little time. This page took me less than an hour to finish.
Here are a few more close ups from this page!
The Twig line is perfect for both masculine and feminine layouts. This page needed little work because the bottom part of the patterned paper already provided a stunning visual element. I simply balanced the design at the bottom with the banner, added a couple of butterflies, some stickers, and it already looked great to me. The doily paper provided the perfect base for my photos.
And a few more detail shots...
Want to add some color to the Twig line? Simply mix and match it with other LYB lines like the “Cupcake Love” which I used here. Pretty hard to tell that they are separate lines huh? The Twig line provided the outdoor feel and look to my page, while the cupcake love line added the girly and whimsical look I wanted to achieve.
And here are some close ups of this page:
Another page where I mixed Twig with the Cupcake Love line. My daughter was actually holding some sweets which she was snacking on. I was not able to fit her snack in my frame when I photographed her. So I placed the cupcake just where her hand would be to help tell the story.
And here are a few close ups!
Check back in a couple of weeks for a "Twig" mini album and a set of cards...
Thanks for your visit!
