Happy Monday, scrappy friends! Before Summer officially ends, I thought I would share a page about summer beginning! LOL!
LET SUMMER BEGIN
One of my favorite collections this past summer was the Carta Bella Paper Beach Day collection. I love the color scheme and can actually see myself pulling out these papers year round. For today’s page, though, I used it with some photos of my daughter and her friends celebrating the beginning of summer with a get-together on the last day of school.
The first thing I did was create a backwards “L” shape on my page for my photos to be anchored on. I cut the strip of striped paper from the Surf Shop paper and placed it vertically on the right side of my page.
Next, I matted my photos and adhered them to a block of the Cruising paper. At the bottom of my photos I placed a strip of the Border Strips paper. The polka dot and plaid were next to each other on the paper, I added the zig zag stitching with my sewing machine for a little more texture.
I punched the striped yellow circles from the other side of the Border Strips paper and then scattered them across the page in a downward diagonal. I love the confetti/party feel this added to my layout!
For the title, I used some die cut white letters I bought in the Target Dollar Spot along with some blue Thickers from my stash. The Beach Day icons really jazz up the title and make it fun!
I created the journal block at the bottom of my page using cardstock scraps from my stash, typing the journaling out with my typewriter. A few brads and enamel dots from the Beach Day collection rounds everything out!
