Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow Cycling Team Projects

Hello!  It has been an incredibly busy month of preparing for our sudden move to Nevada but I'm happy to report that we are just about ready.  The next two weeks before hitting the road will be spent keeping the house in tip top shape for showings, wrapping up some loose ends, and saying many difficult farewells.

I've managed to fit some scrapping time in here and there between all of the moving-related chaos, and today I get to share some of what I've been up to!

Little Yellow Bicycle!  Yes!  I am so grateful to have been invited back for another ride with the Cycling Team this month!

I had an absolutely wonderful time creating with the Acorn Hollow collection. The colors and patterns are just gorgeous and layer together wonderfully!

I adore the beautiful Acorn Hollow papers and embellishments so much... I couldn't resist squeezing as many of them onto my projects as possible! To create this layout's background, I layered 5 different pieces of the patterned paper.

I used the "Fall" chipboard letters for the title. Can you see the pretty flourish detailing on the letters? They come like that!

Little Yellow Bicycle's paper crafting kits are brilliant! Included is a large variety of pre-cut and pre-scored flowers, leaves, strips for accordion folded flowers, and other shapes. Without a doubt, these terrific kits are my favorite of Little Yellow Bicycle's embellishments. I've layered several of the flower pieces and leaves in this cluster, using foam squares behind many of the pieces for added dimensional interest. I've also included some chipboard shapes and a clear cut acorn. Tucked in the middle of it all is a cute blue flower-shaped stick pin.

This cluster consists of an accordion flower and leaves from the paper crafting kit, as well as some chipboard shapes and a cute little acorn from the clear cuts set.

I used foam squares behind the above 3 cardstock stickers. The debossing included on these stickers is a wonderful detail!

For my second layout, I chose another set of 5 different patterned papers to layer for the background. I love to layer papers!

Here are some accordion flowers, layered flowers, and leaves from the paper crafting kit along with some cardstock stickers adhered with foam squares, chipboard leaves, and a totally adorable chipboard owl. See the cute red heart stick pin? Love those! I stuck it through one of the foam squares- don't want anyone to poke any fingers!

I layered 2 of the journaling cards and embellished them with some clear cuts flowers, a chipboard flower and acorn, and a super cute cardstock bird sticker. I tucked the cards a bit behind the photo (tip: adhere your photos using foam squares so that you have plenty of room underneath the edges of the photo for tucking embellishments in!) and then topped this cluster off with another sweet little owl chipboard piece, a foil-accented chipboard heart, and a clear cut heart.

The "family" chipboard piece is adhered at the bottom of this embellishment cluster with a foam square.

Thank you so much for taking a peek at my Acorn Hollow projects today! A great big heartfelt thanks to Little Yellow Bicycle for having me along for another ride! Happy Fall to all!
