VIDEO Tutorial featuring Elizabeth Park from Little Yellow Bicycle

hello, hello! i have a another free tutorial download using one of Little Yellow Bicycle's newer collections called Elizabeth Park. :)

the collection is SO pretty with lots of delicate touches and pops of color against grey and white backgrounds. totally reminds me of spring!

when looking at my photo wall the other day, i thought "hey, why can't i try the same concept on a layout?" and thus the reason i've clustered all but one frame from the package of Fabric Frames onto this layout. they make me happy. :)

in the corners of these frames, i've clustered many different types of embellishments from the collection, but the video will show you my tips/tricks for putting together the accordion folded "pinwheel" flowers that come in the Paper Flower Kit.

this kit is the best time-saving embellishment purchase! the flowers come already die-cut and pre-scored so that you can fold them on the score lines to create a wonderful dimensional cluster of posies. :)

layered together with the texture of the Fabric Frames and the Flower Button Dots, and you've got magic happening right there on your layout!

for the butterfly's antennae, i just used the Stick Pins and trimmed them shorter with my wire snippers, put some dimensional foam tape on the back of the chipboard butterflies that i layered one on top of another and stuck the antennae right into the foam tape. those puppies will stay put with no additional adhesive necessary.

below, is another one of the accordion folded flowers made from those long strips you see in the picture above of the Paper Flower Kit. you can probably imagine how much of a time saver it is since you don't have to create all those score lines every 1/4" down the entire 12" strip. trust me, it's perfection, every.time. :)

the instructions have these same images, a complete supply list and step-by-step instructions. and the video supplement not only gives my tips/tricks for assembling these flowers but also goes into my detail about the other accents on the layout. :) ENJOY!!!
