Simple Stories: Fun in the Sun

Last Friday I shared a double-page layout I created for the Simple Stories Blog using the Hello Summer collection. I must have been in a summer-y mood, because I couldn’t stop … and have several more projects to share with you this week using that collection! So let’s call this the week of “Hello Summer!” 😀

See these two papers? These are the kinds of papers that get me on a roll when I am creating …

“Who’s Ready for Summer?” Paper

“Paradise Found” Paper

I LOVE a paper with large, cute titles I can cut out on my pages (I always feel like I want to use ever last one!) AND I love large adorable florals that I can cut out and use as page accents. And I use both of these on almost ever project I am going to share with you this week. ❤

FUN IN THE SUN

I love when my daughters will twin with me … I know it’s a bit goofy, but it’s still fun! My daughter and I got matching t-shirts on our trip to Hawaii a couple of summers ago and this is just a quick snapshot of us at the airport wearing them on the way home.

I used a this sketch by Laura Whitaker as inspiration for this page. I always love working with Laura’s sketches!

Everything here is from the Hello Summer collection, with the exception of the yellow solid cardstock (from my stash), and the pink diagonally striped paper. That one came from a paper pad by 3 Birds that I purchased from HSN several years ago.

See how cute those titles are on projects?! I loved making it one of the main elements of the page and then dressing it up with a few stickers … how cute are those watermelon slices with their sunglasses?! Those watermelons are twinning … just like me and my daughter are! Bwaaaahaaaa!

I’ve been pulling out my border punches lately … here I used a large, scallop one by EK Success across the bottom of the page. I tried to locate the large scallop punch on the internet, but couldn’t find it anywhere. Hopefully, you have a tool in your stash that will help you achieve something similar … or you could always use an electronic die cutting machine, or create a homemade template? I do really love the large scallop here!

I’ve used one of the fussy-cut florals (from the Paradise Found paper) in the upper left corner of this page, along with the “Hot, Hot, Hot” and mini flower die cuts from the Hello Summer Bits & Pieces pack.

Last year, we held a “Let’s Flamingle” party for all of the ladies in my church in my backyard … and ever since then I have a newfound love for flamingos! I couldn’t resist adding the cute pink chipboard fella to this card … because you know what?! Life *IS* indeed so, so GOOD! 😀
