Sunshine Kisses & Summer Wishes By Dorymar Perez!
Hello, Simple Stories fans, It’s Dorymar Perez today and I’m super excited to share with you this Album. When I saw the Summer Farmhouse Collection, I was thrilled with the colors, patterns, and graphics. This is one of my favorite collections this year. One of the things I liked most about this collection is the Red, I love red, after all it is my favorite color.
I knew that a bright red binder was the perfect combination with the collection. So, I used the Summer Farmhouse 6x8 Paper pad to decorate the cover of my Snap Album. I used a few different snap cards to create the layers and the title of my album and then, I fussy cut the big bunch of flowers included in one of the 6x8 papers to decorate the left side of my album. I then added a dimensional adhesive on the back of my pieces to add dimension.
For the first page, I used one of the snap dividers and folded it at 4” to create an open side flap. To decorate it, I used the gorgeous washi tape of the collection and created the title with the new red foam alphas.
For my first layout I used one of my favorite papers of this collection, I love how the colorful flowers stand out on the light blue background. I highlighted the page by adding layers from papers of the collection and created a small cluster on the right side of my photo mat, then I added the title which is included in the bits and pieces. I love how the red stands out in the yellow gingham paper.
I love to add folding elements in my albums for extra space and interest. For the page above, I used a piece from one of the original page dividers of the snap to create an open flap and combined it with the die cuts, letters, and chipboards. I added a red and white baker twine to give it a personal touch.
The die cuts of this collection have an important role because they are highlighted in any of the patterns. This is the perfect collection to document your summer photos. Have you ever seen a truck as cute as this one?
To create the big pocket, I reduced one on the 6x8 paper from the paper pad to 6.75” and made a diagonal cut. Then I fussy cut the I love summer heart from one of the 4x4 journaling cards to decorate it. Inside the pocket, I added one tag and one card which was decorated with the beautiful patterned papers of the collection.
I love the colors in this collection!! That touch of navy blue between the yellow, red and sky blue gives it an amazing look!
Pockets and flaps = more space and a lot of pictures! YAY!
Inside I had a lot of fun with this collection. The striking colors and beautiful goodies of the collection really highlight each of the spaces in this project.
Definitely this is the perfect collection for this summer, in it you will be able to document your outdoor activities with your family and friends. I hope my project inspires you to use the beautiful Summer Farmhouse Collection.
Thanks for stopping by today!
