Hey y’all Courtney here and I’m sharing the layout that I created using the super adorable Sunshine and Blue Skies collection. Every piece of this collection is absolutely cute from the normal summer icons to the trendy floats and people. The colors and prints are what really drew me into it though. Here is a look of what I created and I hope it inspires you to scrap some summer layouts!
So the main papers I used for this layout came from the 6x8 paper pad and I also used two sheets from the collection pack for my main layout. The main background page is Sunkissed then it’s backed with On Holiday.
I used my silhouette to create my large title and cut it in white then I used the 6x8 pad to back it. You can use any font that you like and just add an offset to it. I used a different patterned paper for each letter. Did I tell you that I am in love with all of these patterns? This was the best way for me to not have to choose which one I went with, and there is still a ton that I didn’t use on this layout!
I spaced my cut file out so that I could add three photos and three clusters to stick with that rule of thirds. Each photo is cut down to 2 ¾ by 3 ¾ so that could back them with the wood grain printed 3x4 elements. This allowed me to have some more neutral going on. Each photo also had a little piece of branding strip cut down layered with gold glitter washi, a phrase sticker, a cute icon, and an enamel dot. This technique is a go to for me when I do pocket pages also. It just adds just the right amount for me. All of those elements came from the 4x6 sticker sheets.
I created three clusters that I thought went well with the photos and the theme I was going with. This layout is created with pictures from my four year olds first beach trip. I used both the bits and pieces and pool people bits and pieces to create the look that I wanted. A few of the elements are popped with foam to help them stand out a little more.
I finished the layout with a few more word phrases at the bottom and sprinkled some enamel dots throughout.
Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to see how you use this collection!
