Little Yellow Bicycle/Xyron
One of the many perks of being on the Xyron design team is that manufacturers will occasionally share their products with Xyron DT members to use with Xyron adhesive. A little while ago I received some Little Yellow Bicycle products (Love Letters collection). Everything about this collection is amazing. Lots of texture, very versatile, and just really, really great.
I am in love with this layout. I wish you could see it and feel it in person (click on it to make it bigger). I know what you must be thinking. Feel it, Jessica? You don’t understand – the background paper and stickers are flocked with velvet! A-maz-ing. Flocked papers can be difficult to adhere things to, but not if you use Xyron’s creative station 900. I simply rolled the scalloped paper right through that machine and instantly had adhesive across the entire paper that will not budge off that velvet paper.
Lastest Baby Scrapbooking Article
Today I have a new article up on MyBabyPhotos.net. This week’s topic – scrapbooking those Christmas photos. With this past Christmas being Elias’ first, I went crazy with the pictures. My article offers some good tips for making your Christmas scrapbooking manageable – hint: don’t scrapbook everything! Here are the layouts I created for the piece (again, click to make them bigger).
This layout is about Elias’ fascination with the twinkling Christmas lights.
This layout is about Elias not being sure what to think about all the presents at Christmas. Check out Elias’ paci – it looks so funny when he sucks on it. But he likes it best because he can easily pull it out of his mouth – silly boy. I can only find them at Walgreens. What’s nice is that they have the same kind of nipple as the nuk brand. Okay, back to scrapbooking…
The snowflakes are ki lace. I adhered them using my Xyron 900. I can’t imagine using any oher adhesive for ki lace – the Xyron makes it so easy! No tedious gluing – just roll and adhere!
This family layout was also made using all Little Yellow Bicycle products (except the Thickers letters). The layout is actually a scallopped circle – the white background is from my scanner.
