Summer Lovin' TN Setup

Summer Lovin' TN Setup

Hello everyone, welcome back to the Simple Stories blog! Leah here and I've got my TN all set up for summer with the Hello Summer collection and I'm excited to share it with you today. I am loving the bright colors and super fun patterns and icons in this line – they were perfect for brightening up my TN setup for July.

It's been awhile since I went a little heavier on my TN pocket décor. Maybe it's the season, but I was feeling the urge to make my setup more fun this month, even if it means my front pockets will be less functional for now. Although, all the extra die cuts and decorative pieces will be great to pull and use when decorating my lists and planner layouts throughout the month.

The patterned papers from the Hello Summer line truly give me all the good summer vibes! I cut some of my favorites down to the size of the TN inserts and wrapped them around the existing notebook covers so that all the inserts would coordinate together. For the front cover, I added some extra layers and die cuts for more interest and dimension. How cute is the little chipboard flamingo sticker?

I love how this TN pocket bookmark/sticker holder project turned out! The base of it is the 12x12 "Just Chillin" patterned paper. I took the similar flamingo patterned paper from the 6x8 paper pad and cut out a piece to create the pocket. Cutting around the head and necks of the flamingo gave the pocket a fun extra touch. I fussy cut all the flowers from the 12x12 "Paradise Found" paper and stapled one of the pieces at the top of this pocket for decoration, but also to hold the stickers more securely in the pocket so they will stay in place if my TN is turned upside down.

Overall, I am loving everything about the Hello Summer collection and can't wait to keep using it in my TN all summer long. Have you picked up this collection yet? The Simple Stories blog and social media channels are loaded with inspiration using this line right now, if you haven't seen enough to make you love it already! Until next time creatives, happy crafting!
