Sun-Kissed Summer Layout

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am going to share with you a quick and easy summertime layout.

For this layout, I used the new Poolside collection from Crate Paper.

First, I cut the Splash patterned paper to 8-1/2 x 11″ and the Sunshine patterned paper to 7-3/4 x 10-1/2″ and layered the two panels together.

I cut out some waves at 5-1/2″ from the Snow Cones patterned paper and some blue cardstock using the Cricut Explore® and Going Places cartridge. Then I adhered the cuts to the bottom of the layout.

I layered and adhered the Sunshine tag (cut from the Flip Flops patterned paper and tied with some gray stitched ribbon) and a photo above the wave die cuts.

I added some foam adhesive to the backside of the Sun-kissed chipboard from the Thickers Sun- Kissed Chipboard Phrase Stickers pack and adhered it below the photo for the title.

I layered the sun and summer die cuts from the Ephemera Die Cuts pack, along with a heart sticker and gray epoxy sticker, at the upper left corner of the photo.

I added the Relax tab sticker from the Layered Embellishments pack to the upper right corner of the photo.

Then, I machine stitched around the layout to finish.

See—it was quick & easy! And I just love the gray, blue, pink, and yellow color combo for summer.

    I love the way you make different patterned papers work together in your “Sun-kissed” layout! I am now less intimidated to try mixing patterned papers–I’m excited to give it a try. Thank You!

      Thanks, Christine! Mixing patterns and colors is fun, so I am happy you are less intimidated by it. Once you start, you will want to keep mixing and matching. 😉
