First Two-Wheeler Layout


This weekend I made a layout of the day that my son got his first two-wheeler. I began with a 12" square of blue cardstock and sewed on an 11 1/2" square of kraft cardstock. The scalloped square for the background is cut at 11" x 11" real dial size from Mini Monograms.


My title is from Graphically Speaking and is cut at 4".


I cut the tree at 16.65" from Just Because Cards and trimmed off the left side. The grass is cut from two sections of 2.5" grass from Easter 2010, welded together, and the bicycle is cut at 3.5" from Boys Will Be Boys.


Lastly, I cut the arrow at 1.35" from Graphically Speaking. For my journaling tag, I just used a rectangle of ledger paper, but I edged it with my "Binding Edge" punch.
