Hot Days and Cool Treats!
Hi everyone! Summer is almost here- yay! I am so looking forward to hot days, pool time and sweet treats and the new Retro Summer collection from Simple Stories is going to be the perfect way to scrapbook all of it! This collection is all about fun, yum and happy! It’s also International Scrapbook Day and Simple Stories is celebrating with an Instagram Hop. Make sure to head over there next! (You may want to change the wording… and add the link!)
I wanted to show all of the fun and bright papers in this collection in one glance so, taking inspiration from my fellow team members, Becki and Dorymar, I cut down the cover of a Teal Sn@p Flipbook and created the album to be vertical! I also resized the inside pocket pages and combined those with decoratively edged patterned papers to give the album all of these wonderful staggered pages!
The pages alternate between pocket inserts and colorful patterned pages from the collection! All of them are decked out with the super charming embellishments and icons along with the cheerful sentiments! I also added in some of the Summer Color Vibe Cardstock which coordinates beautifully!
All of the ice cream icons look yummy enough to eat whether they are stickers, chipboard or foam and add such a delightful element to the pages! Tucked in with these goodies are the bright enamel dots and self adhesive brads! 
There are also some interactive pages too! Two are shown in this photo but there are a few more in this super cute and chunky album! There is a walk-through video on my YouTube channel so you can see all of them in detail!
