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

We are so sad to say goodbye to our Xyron, Little Yellow Bicycle (LYB) and May Arts blog hop - but this week has been AMAZING.  If you missed any of the days you will want to go back and take a look at the incredible projects our Design Team created.  We have been inspired - and we've got one last day of crafty goodness to share with you!

It is all about the mini album today - and Gini Cagle made a fabulous one using the NEW (to be released in July) Xyron High Tack Tape and High Tack Adhesive Dots.  Head on over to her blog for a tutorial...and check out her darling layout she posted yesterday that also uses LYB and May Arts.  Gorgeous!!

The bright colors of Stacy Rodriguez's mini album just make every little detail pop against the white cardstock.  We love all the little details - and on her blog today she shares some tips for creating this on your own.

The patterns of the LYB Poppy collection lend themselves beautifully to home decor items - and Jessica Barnett shows us just how beautiful they can be with this charming altered frame.  Jessica didn't stop there though - head on over to her blog for a cute tag, little mini album (see - you knew we'd tie it all together!) and more.

We've got a HUGE prize pack to end the week - one lucky winner on EACH blog is going to win a prize pack that includes 2 spools of May Arts ribbon, the entire LYB Vintage Summer collection, and a Xyron 5" Creative Station! To enter our giveaway, just leave a comment here on the blog and we will announce the winner on the Xyron Facebook Page on Monday.  Head on over to the LYB and May Arts blogs for information on how to enter their giveaways as well (and check out their beautiful projects).  Good luck - and have a great weekend!

  35. A fantastic gift package that I'd love to win.
    The mini album is really cute. The blue bird is darling.
    Glad to hear there is high-tack tape coming out. So often the regular tape won't hold something that too heavy or too big.
    I'll be watching for it.
