Summer Vibes #5

This layout had me stumped for 2 days. I had cut the small pieces of wave with the squares I had so they would be 2 pieces tall but I was of course 2 inches short on the sides. I started with Lagoon on the sides and that was what threw me off. it was sooooo dark. Today I had a moment to  re address the layout and I ripped off the Lagoon and put on Glacier it was perfect.  Added the bubble border sticker I have been wanting to use and then just kind of added a few  items I liked from the sticker sheet and the journaling cards. Should be a fun layout for the kids. Oh and I got to play with my new cloud stencil from Lawn Fawn. this is such a cool stencil.   Details: Base page  - White Daisy (2) 8.5 X11.25 Glacier strip (2) 2 X 11.25 Wave pattern paper - Started at 4 X 7 and after cutting the waves they ended up being about 3.5 x 7 Glacier photo mats (3) 3 X 4 (2) 4 X 6 Summer Vibes journaling card cut to 2.75 X 3.75 Lawn Fawn Cloud Stencil Stampin up ink - Pool Party Stickers form the Sum

Summer Vibes #4

Who doesn't love a picnic??? Had to change the layout here a smidge. Thought I had ordered 3 kits and I had only ordered 2. The bottom square border was originally on top and bottom. felt a little too much for the smaller layout so I opted just for the bottom so with some fancy glue work the ones I got in the 2 kits worked for all 3 layout sets.. Added some bread, bottle of water and grapes to the basket as well and the smidge of a table cloth. Kind of reminds me of the basket in the movie Minuscule. No talking and the lady bug and ants get involved as well as a ton of other insects. Its a cute movie. So I added Doodle Bug Sprinkle ant stickers to this layout with that movie in mind.    Details: Base page  - Candy Apple (2) 8.5 X11.25 White paper - (2) 8.25 X 11 Candy Apple photo mats (6) 3 X 4 - 1 used for the journaling card that is cut to 2.75 X 3.75 Life is a Picnic title from the Summer Vibes Kelly kit (Candy Apple, Black and Toffee) Border squares - Summer Vibes kit from Kell

Summer Vibes #3

This was a fun style of layout to try out. Had made a bunch of the flowers for the other layouts and they fit nicely here. Really like the flip flops and since I had a bunch from the CTMH kit thought it was nice to keep using them in the layouts. 4 - 3.75 X 3.75 pictures will fit nicely on this  layout. A little journaling on the side and its complete. - Great colors and looks fun for summer pictures.   Details: Base page - Wave pattern paper (2) 8.5 X 11.25 Cut out 6.5 X 9.25 from the center for other layouts   White paper (2) 8.25 X 11 Photo spaces are 3.75 X 3.75 (option of course to have pictures cover the white completely or size to 3.5 X 3.5 - I like a little white border so I will most likely go with the 3.5 X 3.5. Striped pattern paper (2) .5 X 11.25 (about .25 showing so this is a place you could use a scrap or a zip strip easily and get the same affect. I had already cut them so I just slipped them under until I was happy with what was showing.  Canary Strip (2) 4 X 11.25 - C

Summer Vibes layout #1 -

Ended up getting the Summer Vibes digital image set so I could cut items a little smaller for my layouts. This fun layout came about when I was trying to put together another layout. Unfortunately the other layout didn't get to be made but this turned out great so it all worked out. Bright and cheery without being too overwhelming.... Details: Base page - Black (2) 8.5 X11.25 Red Gingham patterned paper (2) 8.25 X 11 (6.75 X 9.25 was cut out of the center of this paper) White - 8 X 10.75 Black Photo mats (4) 3 X 4 (1) 4 X 6 Cricut cuts from the Summer Vibes  set. Flowers - Smoothie, Candy Apple, Canary and New England Ivy   Stickers from the Sticker sheet Flamingo from the embellishments in the kit.

Photo Play Bee Layout

Got this layout idea and kit from Scrapbook Generations . added a link to their page kits if you click on their name. They have a bunch of the new simple stories layouts as well. They are not as good as I had hoped but the kits they are creating are reasonable and most are cute. Prices are $10 for 1 - 2 page layout kit (12 X12)                  $18 for 2 - 2 page layout kits (12 X 12)                  $21 for 3 - 2 page layout kits (12 X 12)                  $28 for 4  - 2 page layout kits (12X12) and they do a free kit the first full weekend of each month with a $25 purchase They have a beach set with 10 - 2 page layouts I am eyeing for $65 that's $6.50 a layout plus with my size of pages I can usually get even more out of the sets. So lots to choose from and a great deal. I opted to use the card with the gnome instead of the Welcome to our Hive - it was just too big and I like gnomes so that is what I chose to do.... Details: Base paper is White Daisy 8.5 X 11.25 Pattern Paper is
