On Board

I tied in lots of fun summer products for this page which was sparked by the latest Paper Issues link up on their blog.
 I used the surfboard chip board piece from Simple Stories Summer Vibes along with the striped background paper and stickers. I painted the wood veneer Surf from Fancy Pants.
I tied in Crate Paper's Craft Market Thickers and the Poolside Thicker words along with Simple Stories Sn@p alphabet stickers.
I hope your summer is full of fun moments like this!

You Are My sun, My moon, & all of my stars.

I adore the quote from e.e.cummings and had this paper from DIY by American Crafts which made the mega sized Thickers form a circular quote/title quickly!
I mixed several types of Thickers to add texture and sparkle to the page.
I stitched around the blocks of paper under our family photo to add interest and another texture. I also stitched around the title to ensure I didn't have letters falling off!
Doing the photo mats in layers of varying sizes helps to use up scraps you have laying around. The plastic stars were a golden tone and I sprinkled them around the page.
I love the foam Amy Tangerine word Thickers "you are" and I try to actually use them instead of hoard them!
I'm linking this up to Paper Issues blog. Always fun to get motivated and get pictures documented!

I Love You- All the Things!

For Paper Issues current issue, Chip off the old Block, this layout of my sister and I came to mind. 
I used lots of sentiments from Elle's Studio. I scattered little bits from Paper Issues Swag Bag.
The Cut Shoppe has this "all the things" cut file. Sister time makes us cherish all the things as we catch up on life!

Toes In The Sand

The new free cut files at the Paper Issues store are beach/summer themed and worked fab with our CA trip pics.
I used Danielle's LO from PI's Facebook group Scraplift Sunday as a sketch to complete this page with mainly Fancy Pants Summer Sun collection.
The toes in the sand cut file was enlarged from a PL size card quote. 
I layered Fancy Pants papers and added Evalicious puffy stickers, Studio Calico sequins, Chic Tags flair, Fancy Pants cork arrows, and an acrylic word from a Felicity Jane kit. Gold paint splatters and I called it done! Forgot to stamp the date, so I added that post picture taking! Happy summer adventures!

A grid design is a great way to showcase several pictures without overwhelming the page. I created this LO back in March for PI's online Scrap event and realized I never blogged it. Our family adores our time at Disney parks so this is a snapshot of a day at Disney World in March doing #allthethings ! 
I wanted to use wood veneer numbers to correspond to the vellum journaling at the  bottom of the page.
The fun #allthethings cut files are from The Cut Shoppe. I watercolored it to coordinate with the Amy Tangerine papers. The grid of circles can be found on Kim Watson's blog. Here's to hoping all the things are magical in your world today!

You are the X to my O

The HipKit Club Facebook group had a free XO circular cut file by Ashley Horton of The Cut Shoppe. I altered it to just cut the outer circle of XO's. For Paper Issues June Scrap and Chat, this layout was created to fit the SCRAP categories. I used red thread to make the gray toned papers pop. 
I chose a playful title as these park pictures of our family tic tac toe games fit the sentiment.
Studio Calico had the circle die cut to coordinate with the patterned paper in my O's. Sometimes things just work out great in how you can utilize them! I added  India ink and enamel dots to finish it off.

Hello Summer Love at the Beach

Fancy Pants has such fun summer collections. I mixed them together using the side A and B of them. 
It was fun to use a cut file from The Cut Shoppe for the Summer Love and cut out BEACH separately and pop the A for the connecting title work. 
I added stitching and a Jillibean Soup Hello sticker to add to the title and tie in the colors.
The texture on Fancy Pants new collections is incredible. I used a few gel pens to add journaling and a few items from Felicity Jane kits at the top. Summer fun almost always includes water and flowers in bloom! I'm linking up to Paper Issues blog for Seas the Day.
