How is your day going? The days are flying by and soon we will be into Spring.. The warmer days and the colors of Spring make Spring one of my favourite times of the year!
However, I received some gorgeous papers that took my winter blues away in the form of the AUGUST CROP KIT which is a one off purchase which you can find in the SHOP AND CROP SCRAPBOOKING STORE HERE!!! This is an amazing kit with colorful summery papers and lots of die cuts and embellishments in the ephemera pack to choose from. I have two layouts to share with you and the first one has some simple instructions for you to create a layout too.
Everything I used is in the kit except for some old cardboard that I put under my photo for some dimension.. or foam tape would work too..
This is the layout that I created.
Life's a beach..
The photo I have used was taken at the Warwick Resort Fiji, so any of your beach holiday or travel photos would be fabulous for this layout..
Cut the strip off Item#2838 Cabana. I will be making a frame from this paper. Measure 6 cms around on each side making the marks on the pink stripey side, I am using the leaf side of this paper.
Lightly distress and ink the inside edges of the frame.
I am using the Item #2341 Pool Party as the base of the frame, the green side. So to use the paper efficiently I will cut out the outside and this will give a frame to use on another layout. So I will do what I did before and measure 5cms around the Item#2341 Pool Party on the stripey side. Just to test that it will fit under the leaf frame lay the Pool Party paper under the leaf frame and make sure I can't see any marked lines.
Cut out carefully, and I am using the green side of the paper on this layout.
Run some thin double sided tape around the edge of the green paper.
Adhere under the frame. This is what the base will looked like.
And some close ups to show details.
And a reminder of the finished layout..
Life's a beach.
The second layout I have created using this fabulous Kit uses the green frame left over from the first layout which is put on a piece of white cardstock from the Kit. I cut 4 rectangle pieces of paper from Item#2839 Summer Fun 4cms by 18cms and used two of each side. These 4 pieces of paper were placed evenly spaced in the middle of the page and then my photo was placed in the centre of the layout. The layout was embellished using die cuts and items from the ephemera pack. The products that I used that were not in the Kit was glitter glue, a flower punch, foam tape, an edge punch and a black marker.
Some closer views.
Life is sweet!
