4 on the 4th

I had a fun time today at the shop, creating 4 summer layouts for you. So I hope you're taking lots of pictures on your holiday weekend so you have plenty to scrapbook.

This is perfect for a picnic! The layout features Evelyn's Collection from Scribble Scrabble. When I saw the paper in January I new it would be perfect for the summer. I accented the layout with an acetate butterfly that I cut out of a transparency from Hambly Studios. Super easy!

Rah rah! This 4th of July Layout features paper from Best Creations. I made paper pinwheels as embellishments and anchored them to the page with brads from American Crafts. They really spin! The double sided paper is so versatile.

I took paper from SEI's Mimosa collection and turned it into a tropical paradise layout. The flowers on the bottom right corner were really easy to cut out...I promise! I also accented the layout with lace cardstock from KI Memories. The "back" side of the papers are about as beautiful as the front, as shown in the strip on the far left side of the layout.

And finally, my homage to all the 'lil fish out there, waterbabies who can't get enough of the pool. This layout features paper from Cosmo Cricket's Snorkle collection which I just recieved. I created a fishbowl effect with a vellum overlay. The sand in the bottom of the bowl is ultra fine glitter my Pink Paislee's Pixee Sticks, and the seaweed is torn mulberry. You can't tell but I added water bubbles with Kaisercraft's Epoxy Dots. And finally a title featuring Thickers from American Crafts.

Happy Summer!

Fantastic! I especially love the Butterfly accent and the pinwheels on the red, white, and blue page.
