A Little Yellow Bicycle Reveal

Little Yellow Bicycle has taken the best of what you love with their Love Letters Collection. It's a lavish collection of saturated pinks, reds, greys (the new go-to neutral) that's sprinkled with just the right amount of velvet and clear accents. There are vintage inspired details that have a modern sensible approach. Are you looking for a Contemporary or Romantic collection? Well the Love Letters Collection is both. Not only can you document those romantic events, you can showcase everyday moments with this collection. Check out the clear shapes and frames, velvet accents, decorative edged papers, epoxy, stamps and more...It's all here!  You will love every day with Little Yellow Bicycle!!

Here's just a few of the projects I created with these "lovely" products:

What’s great about this collection is you can use it for everyday events. Here I’ve made a page for my All About Me album showing my age... yes, I'm 42. The greys and reds were perfect accents to my pink shirt. The Decorative Edge and Love Ledger papers added lots of little details without all the hard work.


Of course the Love Letters collection is made to showcase those special “love” events in your life.  I love the look of the reds, pinks, and greys against the black background; it really gave my page a classic, formal feeling. With a few flowers and some bling I have a classic, romantic page showcasing my Twilight Prom.

Here's a quick, little Valentine's Day gift I made for my mom.  Instead of just sending a photo for her to hang on the refrigerator, I altered a magnetic frame. The reds from the Love Letters Collection added great contrast to our photo that a lot of black in it. As a finishing touch, I added some bling and a flower on the outside of the frame to give it some extra pizzazz.
