August is such a bittersweet month for me. Summer is almost over. The days go by quickly as I try to soak up the last of the summer sun and fun. But yet I look forward to the anticipation of the fresh start of a new school year and the coming autumn months. I have yet to download this summer’s photos from my camera, but Creative Memories Slice of Summer Collection was perfect for scrapping some photos from last summer.
You can make a variety of pages with the bright colors, fun patterns and stickers. The papers have summer prints on one side and neutral solid patterns on the backsides. The pages below were inspired by ideas that I found on Pinterest.
I embellished the page above with a variety of stickers and also borders from our new Scallop Burst Border Punch and Sprout Border Maker Cartridge. The sweet bird was punched with our new Outdoor Adventure Quartet Punch. I cut the yellow circles with our Custom Cutting System and Circles Patterns, and used Foam Squares to pop the bird, flower stickers and the banner sticker in the top corner.
For this page, I again cut yellow circles with our Custom Cutting System and Circle Patterns and outlined my sun with a border punched from the Scallop Burst Border Punch. Use your scissors to snip in-between each scallop in order to shape the border into a semi-circle. Use Foam Squares to give the stickers some dimension – including the wave sticker across the bottom. Finish the page with some pen detailing for extra definition.
For my last page, I cut a variety of waves using our 12″ Decorative Trimmer on both the wave and swell sides. The cute fish were punched with our Outdoor Adventure Quartet Punch and adhered with Foam Squares. The title is a Slice of Summer Variety Mat. Pen detailing really made a difference on this page.
The Slice of Summer Paper Pack also contains sheets of the cutest watermelon and popsicle/ice cream cone patterns! Watch for more pages that I’ll be sharing soon!
You may purchase any of the materials and/or tools that I used on my Creative Memories website.
Thanks for Visiting and Happy Scrapping!
