The kids are out of school and the iconic question that goes “Mooom, what are we going to do today?” has already begun in our household. Haha! I don’t know about you, but even though I love summer, when it’s especially hot outside I think I’d rather stay in with the air conditioning and play with my scrapbook supplies!
Today I have a couple of layouts to share with you featuring the bright and happy colors of summer. This first on uses the Emoji Love collection
WOW! WHAT A FUN DAY
All of my four kids birthdays are in the summer. My oldest daughter has taken it upon herself to start a new tradition with her siblings by taking each one of them out for a special outing to celebrate their birthday. On this day she took her youngest sister to lunch and to do a little bit of shopping.
While they were out together they took lots of selfies of their adventure … which, of course, always includes silly faces! These are the kind of shots that are perfect to use with this darling collection!
I used the two speech bubble die cuts, “Love” and “Yay!”
above this photo … my daughter had picked up a pack of Pokemon cards while they were at Target and had scored a very RARE card. This is the celebratory selfie shot from that moment. Haha!
I used the striped Be a Unicorn paper to mat the largest photo, and then used the solid color 3×4 cards from the 3×4 Journaling Card Elements paper
to mat the two smaller photos. I placed the two smaller photos on either side of the larger main photo and then layered up lots of delicious patterned papers behind them: the Choose Happy Paper
, Yay Paper
, Ha Ha Paper
, and Be a Unicorn Paper
(script). I tilted each of the layers differently for a bit of fun.
I cut out the script “Wow!” word from one of the 4×6 cards from the SN@P! pack
for the first part of my title. For the second part, I used the pink letter stickers from the 4×6 sticker pack
. The nail polish bottle die cut
to the left of the title is a nod to the shopping they did on this day.
What kid doesn’t spend many of their summer days riding their bike around the neighborhood with their friends?!
ENJOY THE RIDE
I gotta tell you … every time I flip through the Summer Days collection
I just get a smile on my face. I love this collection so much! I couldn’t wait to play with it on this next layout!
First, I matted my photos with the diagonal stripe of the Sunny Days Paper
and then adhered the them to the sweet yellow floral Hello Sunshine Paper
. This floral has my heart. It was the perfect backdrop for these photos of my daughter on her bike.
I created my title on my electronic die cutting machine. I backed the openings of the letters with the pink chevron Summer Snapshots paper
to tie it in with the same paper at the top of the page. A flamingo die cut
and pinwheel stickers flank either side of the title … and then a phrase sticker from the 4×6 stickers
at the bottom of the title reminds you that it is definitely a beautiful day to get out and play in the sun!
I used a strip of the diagonal striped Sunny Days Paper to tie in with the photo mats at the top of the page and give the title and accents a place to rest.
Thanks for coming by! I hope you have a great weekend!
