Echo Park Paper: Under the Sea Beach Tote & Flip Flops

Do you know someone who could use a little pick me up this summer? Create this fun beach tote and two flip flop boxes with the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection to give to them, and they will be feeling “sun-sational” in no time!

I created this beach tote and the two flip flop boxes using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
The beach tote comes from the Luxury Handbags SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Isn’t it absolutely adorable! This is the kind of shape I could cut out again and again and decorate it a different way each and every time! I love how roomy it is, too!
I cut the main body of the beach bag from the dark blue Sea Explorers Paper with a sunny orange polka dotted pocket (Deep Sea Fun Paper). The yellow accents were cut from the Coordinating Yellow/Blue Solid Paper and the striped bottom is the Swimmingly Stripe Paper.

Of course I had a blast decorating the front of the bag with all kinds of die cuts (Frames & Tags Ephemera) and stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. I just love that happy yellow submarine and all of the sea creatures!

I couldn’t resist creating a couple of flip flop boxes to tuck inside. I used the orange dotted Deep Sea Fun Paper along with the navy striped side of the 3×4 Journaling Cards Paper. The top of the flip flop is decorated with the fish pattern from the 6×6 paper pad.

Won’t it be fun to fill the flip flop boxes with a treat and tuck them inside of the beach tote?! I plan to stick a few other treats inside, as well. I can’t wait to see the face of the person I give it to!

Simple Stories: Cabin Fever Layouts

This year our family took a road trip through the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Being in the mountains is my favorite place to be! I love enjoying the fresh air along with the sights and sounds of nature. You can bet that I took a lot of photos on that trip that I couldn’t wait to scrapbook using the Simple Stories Cabin Fever collection.
ADVENTURE

The first thing I did was to pull out the Bits & Pieces pack. I sifted through all of the designs and selected several that went along with my photos. The red checked geo tag die cut was perfect for calling attention to the photos of this beautiful waterfall.

I die cut the title from the Summer Camp Paper (red buffalo check) using my Silhouette Cameo 3 Electronic Die Cutting machine and the “Adventure” cut file by Simple Stories found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #199552). I added a pinecone decorative brad to the left side of the title.

I then used more Bits & Pieces die cuts and stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to create two clusters around the bottom of my photos. The floral clusters and word phrases are repeated in both clusters to tie things together.

This next page features a few snapshots taken closer to home … in fact, they were taken in our backyard last fall as we enjoyed the fire pit one cool night.
FIRE PIT

I wanted a plain cardstock background, but decided to make it a little more interesting by die cutting stars all over it. I placed a second sheet of the same color of cardstock behind the die cut piece. The result is a subtle tone-on-tone texture that doesn’t take away too much attention from the photos.

At the top of the photos I added the heart sticker matted with white cardstock. I added the date and a decorative brad for a bit of dimension.

I used my scissors to cut the fire from the 4×6 Vertical Elements Paper. It was the perfect size to accent my title! I couldn’t resist adding the chipboard piece with the  marshmallows on a stick above it. Too cute!

At the bottom of the page I layered up a few chipboard pieces. Two wood slice circles overlap each other and anchor the rectangle chipboard piece. I love what it says! “Life is better by a campfire” So true!

I cut the journal block from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements paper and added it to the right of the photos. I used a black pen to handwrite my journaling and then accented the bottom with the Roughin’ It washi tape and a floral sticker.

Bella Blvd: Just Plain Fishy

I love the Fundamentals Sticker sheets that come with each Bella Blvd collection. There are so many versatile shapes on each sheet, including phrase stickers, tab stickers, border stickers, all types of accent stickers: like hearts, circles, arrows, pluses, and more. There is even an alphabet! Everything you need to make a page look finished is included! You gotta love that!

Today I wanted to share with you a page I created using the Secrets of the Sea – Boy collection, using lots of Fundamental Stickers to accent my page. Check it out below!

JUST PLAIN FISHY

I gotta say, one of my very favorite things about the Fundamentals Stickers is the cute alphabet. I love the varying sizes of the letters. It makes your title on your project look so bouncy and fun! Here you can see that I spelled out my title on a circle of 6×8 paper that has been stitched around the edge with my sewing machine. I added a puffy fish sticker and then used the hearts from the Fundamental Sticker Sheet as the air bubbles for the fish!

I added a designer clip to the top right corner of my main photo and then added a phrase sticker, a large heart sticker, and two plus stickers as accents. You can also see the border sticker accenting the top of my page!

I clustered lots of the Fundamental Stickers in the other corner of my page to the left of the small photo. First, I placed added twine to the tag sticker and added it to the left of the photo. I then added the sailboat puffy sticker. The small cloud, “AWESOME” word sticker, and rectangle fish sticker ground everything and make it feel cohesive.

I added another border sticker to the bottom of the page and used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch across the top of it.

The journaling on this page would almost get lost in the shuffle of things if it wasn’t for that adorable octopus sticker grouped with a phrase and arrow sticker from the Fundamentals Sticker sheet. The arrow directs your eye to the story and helps provide movement on the page.

I had so much fun putting this page together and the Fundamental Stickers were just the things I needed to connect all the different areas of the page together. Thanks for stopping by today!

Simple Stories: Heading into Summer with Emoji Love and Summer Days

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.
In the upper right corner I added a winky face die cut, a epoxy metal clip, a sticker from the 4×6 stickers, and a few enamel dots.

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 accented the top of the photos in the upper right corner with a bit of the striped Good Vibes Washi Tape and a couple of die cuts. The “Big Smiles” sticker is from the phrase stickers on the Combo Sticker Sheet.

I wanted to build a little scene in the bottom left corner of my photo strip. The sun looks like it is rising up over beach bus, beckoning you to come outside and play for the day!

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.
