Xyron Teams Up with LYB & May Arts

Good morning everyone, this week the Xyron DT has been sharing projects created using the fabulous LYB & May Arts goodies!!

 For my project I created a little mini album using Little Yellow Bicycle Popooy line, and some yummy May Arts ribbon.

Here is what my finished mini album looks like.

and a little close up of the cover.

To create this mini album I started by cutting cardstock for the base to 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".  You will need to cut 4 of these.  Take your pattern paper and cut that to 4 1/4" x 6 1/4".  You need 8 pieces of pattern paper.
I love to ink everything, so if you want now is the time to ink your papers.
Once you are ready to put the adhesive on the back, run them through your adhesive machine.  I used the Creatopia for this.
Do this with all of the pages and you will have this.
Now it's time for the fun part....decorating you pages.  In the photo below I used the wooden banner piece on the right side.  The new Xyron High Tack Tape works perfectly to hold these down flat!

I placed different size photo mats through out the mini album.  The little journaling tags with this line are the perfect accent between pages and slip right onto the binder ring!
Supplies Used:
Xyron Creatopia & High Tack Double Sided Tape
May Arts: Ribbon
Little Yellow Bicycle: Poppy Collection & Embellishments
Ranger: Distress Ink

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and a huge thanks to LYB & May Arts for the goodies!
