Another month has passed and school’s out for summer! You may have arrived from Kim’s blog, and if you did you are very welcome. If you arrived straight here, you are also very welcome and hope you are having a great Saturday so far. This month we have made ‘Summer lovin ‘ our theme and I thought I would show you a quick and easy card. I got the idea of the frosted glass from a summer sampler I spotted on Pinterest by Joyce Lowe – I’m not sure if Joyce has a blog…
My base card is Watermelon Wonder, how can you not use a colour named Watermelon Wonder in a summer themed card?! I chose this piece of DSP from the Cherry on Top paper stack as it reminded me of waves crashing on the shore of a tropical beach. Of course, you’d need an iced drink on such a beach and to recreate that, I’ve sponged a piece of vellum in shades of Tangelo Twist, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry.
My next project is a Project Life layout using Lets Get Away card collection. I just love this system of Memory keeping and am enjoying making up albums of past summer holidays.
I apologise for the reflection on my photos – not quite sure how to avoid the plastic reflecting…
I’ve used the Let’s Get Away card Collection and the Let’s Get Away accessory pack. I’ve used a fabulous little card over the top of the sun card that gives a hint of sky colour…
And there is another one over my Beach Babe photo and the beautiful balconies…
When is the last time you printed your photos? I’ve read that our children are one of the most photographed generation ever, yet they will have nothing to pass on to future generations as no one bothers to print out their photos any more. I’ve so many photos to get through but it’s a really fun way to organise them! I’ve put a few extra filler cards in this layout as my final layout will include some beach photos of me – and I’m not revealing those to the world wide web!! Another perk of Project Life, you can slot photos or cards in and out if you change your mind on the layout!
If you are local to me, I am holding a Mum and Me class on September 1st where you and your little one can create an album of your summer memories. There are more details on my Class Calendar page but do get in touch if you’d like any further information.
Here are all the details of the products I used firstly in my card, and then on the Project Life layouts.
