Xyron, Little Yellow Bicycle and May Arts - Day One and a Giveaway!

We are so excited to have not one, but TWO fantastic partners for our blog hop this week! Xyron has teamed up with Little Yellow Bicycle (LYB) and May Arts for five days of inspiration, tutorials, giveaways and more.  Thanks for joining us!

The bright colors of the LYB Poppy collection are perfect for this stunning watering can by Sharon Callis. We love how she uses the May Arts Leaves ribbon as a vine!

The LYB patterned papers coordinate beautifully and make it easy to create a variety of projects. In fact, in addition to the tutorial for making the watering can (woohoo!) Sharon also created three fun cards that she shares on her blog today.  This one uses the LYB Naturals collection - and the May Arts woven burlap ribbon is a perfect match.

This card is such a cool way to use your scraps - Christina Heeren uses both LYB paper and May Arts ribbon pieces to create this colorful arrangement.

The file folder and pocket pages in this mini album are fantastic uses of the patterned paper! On her blog today Christina walks us page by page through the album and shares some great tips.

All this week the May Arts blog and Little Yellow Bicycle blog will be featuring projects using Xyron - AND all three blogs will be having giveaways every day!  Be sure to head on over and check out all the crafty goodness and get yourself entered.  This is going to be a fabulous week!

We are giving away a Xyron Mega Runner today - to enter simply leave a comment here on the blog.  The winner will be announced on the Xyron Facebook Page on Tuesday.  Good luck!
