Hello Summer / CREATE Magazine

It's the weekend....woo hoo!!  I have another layout to share with you today.  This was my second layout published in the July 2015 issue of Scrapbook Generation's CREATE Magazine.  I was assigned to create a Summer-themed layout, and those are right up my alley :)

I used the gorgeous Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection for this.  I started off with some turquoise acrylic paint on the background and a messy scribbly circle die cut from the Silhouette Store.  I used gelatos to color it yellow.  I used several of the Summer Vibes Project Life cards for my layers and title.  I also added in some blue tissue paper from my stash.  It matched perfectly!

Here's a close up look at the layers.  This beautiful collection is one of my favorites, and all the colors just look amazing together.  I added in some stickers and a brad here as well.  I used a fun chipboard frame over the photo and used pop dots to raise up that cute camera beside it.

I love creating banners with my triangle punch, and I did that here.  I stitched it all down and then added those cute sunglasses.  I think I used three different color threads on this page.

Here's another look at that scribbly cut file.  I love the messy look of it!  It made it easier for me to stitch in a circle...because I can never stitch in a perfect circle...haha.  I even stitched through that chipboard frame.  They're pretty thin, so it wasn't a problem.

And one more close up of the top...I applied the blue acrylic paint with a foam brush so it wouldn't go on too thick.  I wanted the texture of the cardstock to show through here.

And that's it!  You can still visit the CREATE website HERE and download FREE copies of the magazine!  So much inspiration in there!

Thanks for stopping by!
