Simple Stories: Two Page Beach Layout

Four years ago my family checked off a bucket list item when we took our summer vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We stayed in a beach house and/ spent our days playing in the ocean, collecting shells, and eating good food. It was amazing! The Simple Stories Sunshine & Blue Skies collection, with its sunkissed vibe, was perfect for scrapbooking all of the beach photos I took while we were there!

I pulled out the Say Cheese 4 Fun Words Large Metal Dies to create my title. I die cut the title three times. Two layers are from Navy/Emerald paper, and the third layer is from the navy dot side of the Let’s Escape paper. I layered them all together with foam tape to give the title lots of dimension.

I LOVE the Pool People Bits & Pieces and couldn’t resist creating a little scene with them below the title. I surrounded them with phrase stickers from the Combo Stickers and 4×6 Stickers, and added in more accents from the Bits & Pieces pack and Chipboard Stickers.

I used dies from my stash to compliment the Sun die cut at the top of the page. I used foam tape to add a couple of leaf stickers and a phrase from the Combo Sticker Sheet.

This embellishment cluster on the right page was a lot of fun to create. I love combining die cuts in an “L” shape to accent the corner of my photos. I also added another die cut word to this side, as well, accenting it with the hexagon umbrella shapes from the collection, phrase stickers (4×6 Stickers), and that super-cute, polaroid camera sticker!

I love how beachy this collection feels! It was the perfect way to document our beach adventure on the East Coast!

Doodlebug: There’s No Place Like HOME

Only have one photo for a page? Try creating a larger-than-life title to fill the rest of your layout like I did below on this fun page using the Doodlebug Simply Spring collection.

I wanted to scrapbook this photo of my oldest and youngest daughters hanging out together at home, and thought it would be fun to use the Cozy Cottage Doodle-pop Sticker in place of one of the letters in the word “HOME.”

I die cut the large letters using an electronic die cutting machine and then placed the Cozy Cottage sticker on layered circles in place of the letter “O.” The remaining letters are accented with the May Flowers Sprinkles.

I had several scraps of patterned papers left over from a previous project. I layered them together behind my photo for more color. I placed a pair of Sunny Skies Cute Clips at the top left corner of the photo even more dimension.

The flowers in the bottom right corner of the photo were created using the Garden Flowers Craft Kit. I scored the leaves and added Glitter Sprinkles to the flower centers.

I capped the top of the page off with a sunny, scalloped border sticker from the This & That Sticker sheet

… and then added two colors of pink heart Sprinkles around the page for a lovey-dovey feel.

Echo Park Paper: Fun in the Sun

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 circle at the top featured a couple of chipboard pieces from the Chipboard Accents pack, as well as a glittering, pink, rhinestone brad.

I used the Ride the Wave embossing folder to emboss the Lt. Blue solid background of this circle for a few fish to hang out in.

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!

Today I am working with the Springtime Simple Set. Butterflies and flowers are not only perfect for Spring, but work great for everyday memories, as well. This page is about my daughter achieving recognition in her writing class at college. Definitely, a “bloom where you’re planted” moment for her!

Butterflies are a perfect symbol for growth and transformation, as well as following your own path. I fussy-cut the butterflies from the 3×4 & 4×6 Elements Paper and then adhered them to the page with foam squares as embellishments.

I layered several of the stickers together in this embellishment cluster, anchoring them with strips of patterned paper across the bottom and a scribble-style circle that I die cut using my electronic die cutting machine.

On the opposite side of the photos I used several patterned papers from my scrap bin and some metal dies from my stash to create a pair of dimensional flowers.

I hope this page will help my daughter remember to always celebrate her accomplishments! There is so much in our lives to be grateful for!
