Little Yellow Bicycle Cycling Team reveal! Wonder & Wishes...

I am THRILLED to be sharing some projects with you from the Wonder & Wishes line!  When I received all the wonderful goodies that go along with this collection, I kept asking myself, “OK, do I want to photo of the tree? Stockings? The kids with Santa?  Our Christmas villiage?”  Truth is, this line is so versatile that you can scrap any holiday tradition with it!

My dad just visited recently and brought along some old family photos (by request, of course), so I decided to use some of the old Christmas ones that he had.

This first page is a photo of my grandparents from 1942 with their first born, my Uncle (they ended up having 5).   What struck me about this photo was all the tinsel on the tree!  I haven’t seen tinsel on a Christmas tree in years!  So I decided to go with the silver inspiration.  I splattered some silver metallic paint on my page and made some silver flourishes with some silver fabric wire.  For the rest of the page I wanted to stick with a pretty simple green and red color combo and this was the result!  I love the diecut paper pieces…perfect for adding just the right shapes to your page.

Another old photo for my 2nd page, too.  Not quite sure about the date but probably around 1950.  I  splattered some white paint on the kraft paper and added some machine stitching here and there.

This card kind of happened by accident.  I had laid the paper circle garland down on a piece of paper and it fell into a shape that reminded me of a tree, and voila!  I love the sentiment stickers…they are great for doing quick and beautiful Christmas cards.

The bright green corrugated cardboard elements add such great contrast against the deep red.  Here is a quick and simple card.
Lastly, I really wanted to use some of the canvas tapes and highlight them on a simple package.  I used some fabric glue to glue the little pom-poms on the ends of the twine to create a cute bow.

I want to thank everyone at Little Yellow Bicycling for having me as part of the cycling team!
