Lilypea Vinyl Stickers

I’ve been working with a local vinyl cutting company to design and cease vinyl wall stickers. These are fantastic, you order your design and the vinyl is cut ready to go straight on your wall, and the results are stunning!

I’ve designed a few little pieces so far:

I have worked with Age England before, and this is a nice little job – using their existing graphics and branding and setting all the type. I love the little people and the colours, and this is always an enjoyable piece to do, setting the type in the best way I can, and playing around with the layout.

Tour de France

It was my husband’s birthday at the beginning of July. He has always wanted to go and see the tour de France, and this year, as it was starting in the UK, we decided to spend the weekend in Yorkshire.

We hired a campervan, and camped in Yorkshire, spending most of our time either near Scarborough or in Haworth, and travelling round to watch the Tour.

Saturday, we headed to Leeds and watched the start in the city centre – awesome…

Followed by brunch and a tour of the city with some friends. We then made our way back to Mr Foley’s Cask Ale House in Leeds for a beer and to watch the finish on their big screens… (and Cavendish’s crash!)

Sunday we stayed in Haworth, found a spot on the main cobbled street, watched the awesome caravan go through first (branded cars, throwing freebies, police vehicles and the team cars) after the locals and visitors who were riding the course first, then saw the leaders followed by the peloton…

We then headed to the park to watch the end on the big screen 🙂

A fantastic few days away – awesome to watch and lovely to catch up with friends too. I’ve come back feeling refreshed ready for a busy summer of work!

TTFN,
Laura
