Summer Is Full Of Happiness
Hello everyone ! It's Mindi here with you today. I am going to be sharing some summer themed pocket pages using the new Sunshine & Happiness collection. With it's gorgeous colors and all things summer it is simply perfect.
It's very typical for me to leave my title cards fairly simple as i did with this one. I ended up adding some chipboard pieces for some added depth, that is what I love about them, and the summer banner plus the dates below. I went with a mostly white card that way it didn't add to the busyness of the spread.
Last summer we went to visit my parents for a couple of weeks. These pages span a whole week of that trip. I ended up staying with my usual weekly schedule all through out the summer with some event/theme based spreads thrown in. During our stay we visited a city pool with some of my family. The pool had a water slide that previously Noah had been too short to participate. This year when we went over to the measuring stick to check his height. The joy that came over his face when he realized he was tall enough almost made me cry. He was so excited to slide down that slide over and over again. The @ journaling card was a great choice for our pool journaling. I spelled out Pool with the letter stickers and then added the label sticker on the bottom.
My mom is famous for her parties and get togethers. Ever since I can remember we have had parties in the backyard. A few years ago she put up what she calls " Party Lights " around the deck. We had a family get together one night and I snapped a picture of the lights. I added a little bit of journaling onto the photo before printing and then finished it off with some stickers.
The colors in this collection are great. I used green here and there to compliment the green in my photos. Usually I am not a green fan but it worked for this spread. I also added pops of the dark pink color to tie in with the pink in my photos. I love that it draws your eye to the color.
Since I added in lots of photos to my spread I needed a space for more journaling. I had this idea to add the chipboard letters onto the 4x6 journaling card that had the word summer on it already. I added a few of the chipboard letters onto it with my stapler for a fun look.
I used a variety of different embellishments for this journaling card about my visit to a local soda shop. This technique is something that is so easy to do. Don't be afraid to get those bits and pieces out and play around to make a custom journaling card of your own.
There is nothing better than white space on a photo to add some journaling and embellishments. It makes me all types of giddy. I added my journaling to the top of the photo on the left before figuring out what else I wanted to add to the photo. The story about the photo reminded me of summer joy. I went with adding the word JOY to the top of the journaling.
I have really enjoying reliving a few of our summer memories from last year while putting these pages together. I wish you all a fabulous rest of your summer and thank you for visiting the blog today. Now go out and get those summer memories scrapped.
