Scrapbook Layout created for Simple Stories - SUMMER -

Hi there!

 I am up on the Simple Stories blog with two new projects showcasing the beautiful Summer Days collection.  Here is the first of the two, and the next one is in the  next post.

We are so lucky to have an outdoor swimming pool in our backyard for all those hot summer days, but i think my little niece is the one who enjoys it  the most -on all the days she visits us-.   So i chose to document a picture of my niece at her happiest!

I love cut files!, so this time i chose to use the "Summer" cut file from JustNick Studio to stitch the  large sun image in the background.  A bit of watercolor, and golden splatters completes the background.  

The mat  was then trimmed about a quarter of an inch on all sides, and machine stitched to the b side of the Sunny Days paper.  The title of this page was  then created with the same cut file, however this time, i chose to back the cut out with all the different papers from the collection.   Don't you just love all those summer designs!!

I placed the picture on a  bit of a slant, and used pieces from the combo sticker sheet, bits and pieces, 4x6 stickers, and those gorgeous decorative brads to create clusters at the corners of the picture.  I just wanted to reflect the elements and colors from the entire collection in the clusters.

I love this collection brads and stickers, and what better way to use them in your layouts than to layer them.  All the small word stickers included in the 4x6 sticker pack are just perfect to add to small tabs, flags and onto those small corners of your projects.

Here is the completed layout.  I love all the textures and colors that are displayed in this project.  The  summery designs are the perfect complement to all your summer memories.

I hope this inspires you to take a look at the Simple Stories' Summer Days collection - for all the materials used, check the Simple Stories blog-.

Remember I am a comment away if you have a question on how this came together.
