Summer Layout {My Mind's Eye}

There's something about this colour combo that just screams "SUMMER!" to me. 
Orange & turquoise... the colours of afternoon sunshine, orange popcicles, open water, & clear sky.

The perfect colour combo for a cheery summer layout featuring my son.

  This is one of my favourite layouts of late. And because I used papers from a single line it made co-ordinating the patterns a breeze (like a summer breeze). ;)

I used my Cricut & a couple circle punches to get all the different circle sizes. 

Usually I do my journalling by hand. Mostly because it's faster for me. This time, I was trying to get out of my normal scrapping routine, so I typed up my journalling in plain old Times New Roman 
(way faster than searching for the "perfect" font for what would turn into hours), 
making sure I double spaced the sentences. 
I printed it out onto white cardstock, trimmed it into strips, & adhered to fit in with the circle pattern.

  I also love how the title turned out. I wanted to use these letters that I had in my stash & had kind of forgotten about, but there wasn't room to line them up in a row. I pop-dotted every other letter to make a layered effect. Love it!

Supplies Used:

  • Patterned paper - My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy line
  • Corrugated letters - Jillibean Soup
  • Small letter stickers - Basic Grey
  • Felt stars - Pebbles
  • Flair Badge - American Crafts
  • White cardstock - Bazzill Basics
  • Font - Times New Roman

    What a fun, fresh layout!

    I absolutely LOVE this paper pack, Stephanie (I own the 6 x 6 pad) and was so excited to see how you used it for a layout. I'm just finishing up a post about a birthday card for my Dad that I created with this paper and hexagons.

    Thanks for more inspiration!
