I started with a sheet of white Bazzill cardstock and to the top and bottom of the page I stuck wide strips of the Summer Bouquet (B Side) paper. The branding strips on the papers in this collection have cute words and patterns on them and so I added three of them to the layout as well as narrow strips of bright pink cardstock.
I cut the word 'Summer' from white cardstock using a cut file from the Silhouette Studio and backed this with papers from the collection. The cut file was then stuck to the layout with 3D foam underneath to add dimension.
Two 2x3 photos of my daughter playing with the hosepipe in the sunshine were matted on white cardstock and stuck to the right side of the layout, with 3D foam underneath.
I fussy cut some flowers from the Summer Bouquet paper and used these as embelishments.
Using a circle punch I punched the words 'Smile Big' from the Hello Summer paper, matted this on a circle of white cardstock and added it to the layout. Two die cut birds from the Simple Stories Oh Happy Day Bits and Pieces were added.
I completed the layout by adding the word 'Fun' using some very old foam Thickers from my stash and journalling strips printed on white cardstock on my computer.
I hope you like this layout and feel inspired to scrap those summer photos. There are lots of gorgeous supplies in the shop and I'll be back again soon with another layout.
