Scrapbooking Sweet Summer

Hey there, it's Jody here at Floppy Eared Farm.  I have a fun and colorful scrapbook layout to share. 

First, I looked through my photos. Of course these two with ice cream were too adorable to pass up. Then I remembered the free cut file from Paper Issues and knew these would be perfect. I also grabbed the new July 2018 Hip Kit Club main and embellishment kits.  They are filled with exclusive products and the colors are beautiful.

As long as I can remember I always back my photos.  I think a nice soft color frame is a great first step to get the page rolling. I ended up using some of the packaging from the exculsive products as a frame.

I played around with the pictures and cut files, then decided a grid-ish layout will do.

I grabbed the amazing Distress oxides in 4 colors and applied the ink in four sections using the packaging technique. So easy, ink some packaging, spritz with water, then pat the packaging on to the paper.

I added one more frame around the pictures using one of the exclusive papers. I also used foam sheets to add dimension to my pictures. For a large area like the photo, the foam sheets give great coverage, so affordable and one side already has adhesive on it!

I felt like the right side of the page had too much white. So I tore some of the white card stock off and backed the area with a coordinating paper. I love a good ruffled up edge so I put my handy distresser tool to work.

I added embellishments, some tread, a piece of washi tape, and used an adorable exclusive acrylic word and alphas for my title. 

To wrap it up, I added the date in blue ink and highlighted around the tops of the ice creams so they would be more recognizable. I love how it came out. I think scrapbooking in chronological order makes the most sense. But, they are your memories scrap them however you would like! Just get them off your camera and phone! 

Thank you for stopping by.
