Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - Hello Summer, I Love You -
As my reveal week continues at Scrapbook Nerd. I am still inspired to document summer memories - it is my way to preserving the long hot days in the sun with my family-. For this layout I am using a picture of my son and my nephew at the EX. These two are 12 years apart, but love each other to death. I have created a small video on how the layout came together, I hope you enjoy it:
For this layout, i chose to use the Cut Shoppe's Summertime Circles. The Sun shape was used to recreate the sunny feeling of the day. To create the Sun, I isolated the sun shape on the Silhouette software, and sent it to cut on white cardstock. Next, I did not unload the cut mat, and added an external offset to the page, I set the machine to perforate the offset line, so that i can follow the perforations with some hand stitching. Once I have the cut out, I stitched the sun in different colors (all found in the stripe paper of the collection), and proceeded to back the cut out with a paper of the same color as the stitched line.
|Here is how the cut-out looks like before the picture was added.|
The picture was added next. Many layers were created by using papers of the collection, and pieces of ephemera, and cut-outs from the Silhouette store.

For the title, i chose stickers from the collection to form my sentence. ..
I cut a small edge of the layout, and attached it to the stripped paper from the collection using a sewing machine. A few more details were also added in the page. Here is the final layout:
I love the simplicity of this page, as it brings the attention to the picture. I hope you visit Scrapbook Nerd to see what the ladies have in store.
As always do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about this or any or my layouts.
See you around!
