Cut it Up – National Bicycle Month!

CIU challenge blogDid you know it’s National Bicycle Month?  That’s what we’re celebrating today over at Cut it Up Challenges.  You should see all the great projects the Design Team made for your inspiration.  Very creative!!

I was never particularly skilled at riding bicycles.  I have scars all over my legs from when I was a kid riding around the neighborhood.  But a woman that I work with is an avid biker, and she met her husband when she moved to town and went into his bicycle shop to purchase a bike.  They just had their first baby, a girl.  I decided to take this opportunity to make a little mini-album with a bicycle theme for her.

P1080043webSome of this paper has bicycles on it, but I also print and cut bicycles at 1-inch, 2-inches, and 3-inches.  The three-inchers are inserted into pockets to be used for journaling.  The file on my computer says lbw-two wheeler paper piecing.png, and I THINK it’s from My Grafico, but of course, I can’t find it there. . .  But I LOVE the colors on this bike!  And teal is one of my friend’s favorite colors.

The pages in the mini are made following this awesome tutorial by Teresa Collins.  You can get a better look at the pictures if you click on them.
