Feels Like Home

This month we've been sharing the newest collection at
LITTLE YELLOW BICYCLE
The collection is Feels Like Home and it's now available at retailers and online


Simple house-shaped chipboard pieces were the perfect backdrop for this mini album.
 For the cover, I drew inspiration from the On A Limb paper (from the 6x6 Paper Pack).
 I die-cut a tree and layered it on top of the branch pattern found on the paper.
 I added a couple of sentiments and shapes and the cover was complete.


When planning out the following pages, I like to alternate the colors so that I don't have
 two blue pages together, etc. 


Because I'm mostly a card and mini-album maker the 6 X 6 Paper Packs are a must have 
because the designs are true to scale and are perfect for paper piecing and die-cutting. 


And as with most of the mini albums that I create, I add a trim of twine or jute to the
 edge of the chipboard; use fabric glue and a toothpick to spread a thin bead of the adhesive
 along the edge and press the jute in place.



 
There are a few additional close-up photos of this album on the 
Little Yellow Bicycle Blog...also many other great projects made with this collection!
Have a great week ahead!
