Happy Saturday crafty friends!
I am so happy to share some inspiration today for this week's 3-to-inspire challenge.
Here are the items on today's list:
1. large tag
3. patterned paper
I decided to do this challenge in my Sea Glass Life Crafted Album (one of my favorite colors). I wanted to record this fun family picnic picture from a few years ago. I also used papers, ephemera, and stickers from the June add-on kit.
This layout starts with the white textured paper from the add-on kit. Next, I cut the word fun vertically on my electric cutting machine into the white cardstock. I knew backing the cut-out word with patterned papers would be a great way to include the beautifully colored papers.
Here is the list of patterned paper I used:
- Brave & Bold "It's Electric" by Amy Tangerine from the add-on kit.
- Garden Party "Happy Growing" by Maggie Holmes from the add-on kit.
- Yellow striped paper from the Peachy Keen paper pad by Fancy Pants Designs.
Next, I took my 4x8 tag and covered it with the same yellow stripe patterned paper. I placed my photo on the tag. I added fun, summery ephemera and puffy stickers from the Simple Stories Sunkissed collection that come along with the add-on kit. I also included labels from the Citrus Twist Kits Butterfly and Tags ephemera pack to my cluster.
Just under the cluster, I added my typed journaling. I used the "Story" word stamp from the Storytelling Stamp Set to complete this cluster.
Last, I add fun touches to each side. I had to include a butterfly from the Butterfly and Tags ephemera pack. I add the sunglasses, sun, and pinwheel ephemera from the Sunkissed ephemera pack. I couldn't resist all the little foam hearts from the Sunkissed foam sticker sheet.
I really enjoyed getting a chance to play with all the fun pieces in the June add-on kit this month. I hope you are inspired!
