We've had tons of rain here in Ohio this summer...more than I can remember there ever being. It would be hard NOT to fall in love with the Summer Vibes collection, but all of it's cheeriness were just what I needed on another rainy afternoon!
Determined to fill the back of the pocket page that I used for last month's post, I sat at my desk and began sorting through the cards in the Sn@p! set. This set is a bit different in that there are a couple of die cuts and envelopes, all sized to fit into a 3x4 pocket. The camera and 'Summertime' die cuts went straight into my 'must use these' pile and I was off and running.
I paired a 4x4 photo of my daughter and I with a 3x4 card in the top left pocket...I love how it changes up the look of the page so I never feel 'repetitive'. The bonus transparency overlays in the collection pack are all 4x6, so I just laid it over the photo and trimmed it down. The camera die cut didn't need much help being cute, lol...I just added the 'sun kissed' photo sticker in the center of the lens to add some yellow. :)
Reinforcing my mantra that 'it's ok to just let pretty paper do it's thing inside a pocket', the bottom left corner pocket is one of my favorite cards/prints in the set and simply got a few of the photo stickers placed in the center-ish...I stitched around and around to highlight the phrases. I love the collage-y feel of that card!!
Originally I was thinking about placing the 'summertime' die cut in the pocket by itself, but liked it a bit better with some of the driftwood pattern behind it. Again, random stitching and a few enamel dots were enough to jazz it up. The 2x12 pocket along the right side was cut from the Sun Kissed patterned paper...a few stamped phrases + stickers + the 'summer' title sticker and I was done!
I find that I keep sifting through all of the Sn@p! cards from this collection...so many great patterns + phrases to use on just about any project :)
