This month for Scrapbook Supplies Online I got to play with the Saturday collection from Little Yellow Bicycle. This collection was so much fun to use with its rich denim blues with red, brown, and cream. My kids were away for a few days so I did some power scrapping over a 2 day period (be forewarned: there are 4 layouts and a mini album in this one post!!). Here is what I came up with first:
Everything except the paint splatters, letter stickers, and the little red label stamp in the top right corner is from the Saturday collection. The Tear Out Ticket and Journalling Card pack provided plenty of embellishments for this layout and many of the others I created.
This next layout was created using a 12X12 photo as the background. I don’t have a large-format printer, so I had the print done at Costco. My Costco does not offer same day service for 12X12 prints, but had this one done in about a week. It then took me over a year to scrap it, lol (although, to be fair to myself, I had already scrapped it before and gave it to Papa as a gift)!
I used bits and pieces from the Saturday collection for this layout. Letter stickers and the little red stars (cut from card stock with an MFT die) are from my stash.
I knew I wanted to do a mini album using this collection, and these photos of my nephew were perfect for these papers! I wanted the mini to have a clean and simple look and to be fast and easy to create. I used a piece of scrap corrugated cardboard for the front and back covers and attached a tag to each page to use as a simple way to bind the pages.
I cut the blue chipboard frame from the collection and used it as the main embellishment for the cover. The great thing about the chipboard in this collection is that it has a smooth white finish on the backside, so if it overhangs the page in a mini album, there is no need to cover the back of it. I made sure there was lots of white in the mini so the white backside of the chipboard would fit well with the overall look of the mini.
I used a Maya Road envelope for this page (opens at the bottom for something different) but you could use any kind of pocket or envelope. I put a few journalling tags inside for my sister to write some notes.

My third layout (4th project) using the Saturday collection showcased some of the photos from the mini album. I’ll be giving the mini to my sister, so I wanted to scrap a few of these photos for my own scrapbook.
Most of the banner pieces are from the package of Chipboard Shapes that came with the collection, but I did make a few extra pieces to make it a double banner. It was easy to make extra pieces using the coordinating paper from the collection.
Here is my last (and probably my favourite, thanks to that amazing piece of ScrapFX chipboard available at Scrapbook Supplies Online) layout using this collection:
I was down to a single full piece of paper from the collection at this point, and I didn’t want to have any blue in this layout, so I did have to raid my red scrap bin for a few little pieces to get the layering right on this one. But the majority of the layering is book paper and a paper bag, which most people have readily available at home.
