Summertime is about so many things, but for my daughter it is about hanging out with her friends having fun! Today I have a new layout up on the Echo Park Paper Blog featuring the I Love Summer collection.
My daughter was born in the summer which is perfect for her sunny personality! I placed the “Hello Sunshine” Ephemera die cut at the top of the page because it is the perfect reflection of the fun person she is.
Besides hanging out with friends, my daughter LOVES to go to the pool to swim anytime she possibly can. I decided to use my electronic die cutting machine to cut this series of open circles to mimic bubbles. I treated each bubble, or circle, with 6×6 papers and embellishments.
This last circle features a cheerful, toucan with a seashell background and another pink, gem brad.
I used an Echo Park design from the Silhouette Design Store and letter stamps from my stash to build my title. The file I used is called the “Fun in the Sun” phrase (Design #186889).
I loved the striking contrast of the navy blue in this collection and decided to finish this page by capping off the top and bottom with strips of the gingham Summer Floral paper. The result is a happy, summery page that I can’t wait to add to our family album!
