Summer Smiles (Little Yellow Bicycle Splash)


I have more Little Yellow Bicycle Splash Collection goodness to share with you today. :) I'm having so much fun with this collection!

A couple of things to point out...The vellum tape strips are awesome! I wanted to create a "loop" to use on this page (see top right corner) but didn't want it to get flattened once the layout was in an album. So, a plumbing supply of all things came to the rescue (well, Tom came to the rescue by suggesting it)! I snipped a piece off of a length of clear flexible plastic piping (it's the diameter of a drinking straw) and rolled the tape strip over it. That baby isn't going to flatten now and the bonus is that you can't see it!

Another fun thing you can do is cut the Fresh Verse stickers apart, either to fit the size of the space you are using them in or use only a portion and save the rest for another project. For this page, I cut one of the quotes into three pieces so I could stack them in the space above the umbrella. Oh, and see the dark blue "3. relax, 4. enjoy" to the left of the umbrella? I used the top portion of that sticker on another layout.

So these are my fun tips for today. Have a great one!
