My Little Yellow Bicycle!

Boardwalk Envelope Album Kit
Huzzah!! We have new products from Little Yellow Bicycle (aka LYB) and it is SO cool! I have always been the type to keep a journal when on any vacation, then turn the journal pages into a scrapbook once I get my snapshots developed...and after seeing the Envelope Album Kits by Little Yellow Bicycle I feel like I've been missing out all these years!! It includes 5 reversible envelopes, 5 double-sided cardstock inserts, 2 chipboard covers, patterned paper, and embellishments!! I love the breezy colors they chose for the papers in the boardwalk set - they really do scream beach and relaxation. The fact that each book has envelopes means that you can keep extra photos or other mementos tucked away. In the past it's taken me a while to put together scrapbooks after trips (maybe it's that I stay in that relaxed-mode for too long after..hehe) and I think these kits would help me a lot. As some of you may have noticed, I get a little wordy sometimes and the kits would be a nice way to display the top memories. (See below!!)
There's also another Envelope Album Kit called Pack Your Bags that has more greens and navy blues for those of you who may not be wild about pastels. While with the Boardwalk kit my mind wanders toward the beach, the Pack Your Bags kit reminds me of camping or a trip around the country. I love the idea of having a small album to remember a trip instead of the whole scrapbook shebang - the Envelope Album Kits are the perfect size to carry around with you. Not much of a traveler? These kits could also be used to show off children, pets, or whatever else you can think of! Stephanie noted earlier that you could use these kits as a friendship-themed birthday gift - all you'd have to do is find a few nice photos, write a few fun memories down, and you'd have a great little scrapbook to give to your friend!
Canvas Stickers
LYB also has canvas stickers that would be a superb addition to any project. They could be used as around-the-page borders...to hold down photos and other scraps...or even just to make something look cooler. I highly suggest checkin' out LYB's stickers. They're unique and a lot of 'em are sparkly, too!! Again, if you're crunched for time, this is the way to go. And...speaking of time crunches...I've got to be going! Please have a lovely evening!! Also, check out the examples below!!

Sincerely,
Sarah
