Have you printed your summer photos yet? Although we may be enjoying some beautiful fall colors and weather, I have some summer scrapbook layouts to share with you. I originally created these layouts for Creative Life Scrapbooking.
Each of the layout photos below was shared to our Creative Life Scrapbooking Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest accounts. Make sure to like and follow us to see the incredible layouts that our 7 designers share each week!
I used the Sweet Summer Collection and coordinating cardstocks to create my first two layouts. Look on the packaging of our Creative Memories paper packs to see a list of coordinating cardstock colors! I also used the Custom Cutting System and the 12-Inch Trimmer with the Scallop and Perforating Blades to create my ice cream cones.
For my second layout, I used the Custom Cutting System to create my POOL letters. I used the Custom Cutting System and the Rubber Duck Punch to create my fun floaty. I also used the Original Border Maker System with the Double Rickrack Chain Border Maker Cartridge on both layouts.
For step-by-step instructions to create these layouts, please see the Shop in our Creative Life Scrapbooking website.
For my next layout, I used some older papers and stickers. And I used the Firecracker Punch (that is currently on sale in the Last Chance section of the Creative Memories website) and the retired Double Star Punch to create some fun quilt-inspirated squares for my Fourth of July layout. I love the fun pattern that these pieces created!
For my last layout, I created a large chunky border of fun flowers. I used shades of red and yellow to match my photos, but it would look great done in other colors too! I used the Custom Cutting System, Leafy Vine Border Punch, Black Sans Serif ABC/123 Letter Stickers, and papers from some of our tonal paper packs. Don’t forget the faux pen stitching on this one – it really adds a lot!

While you’re at our website, you might also consider joining the Creative Life Scrapbooking team for our November 3rd PJ Party Virtual Crop. We’ll be sharing 7 double-page layouts that are versatile so you can use your stash and use the layouts for many different types of photographs. These are exclusive layouts that we won’t share elsewhere, and each layout features a technique or unique feature. We’ll record the live Zoom sessions so they can be viewed at your leisure.
