Hi everyone! Tara here (@secretbees_studio) with a sweet summer mini scrapbook made with the bright and fun Summer Lovin’ collection! I took one look at all of the adorable paper patterns and embellishments and knew it was perfect for some summertime photos of my kids in their younger days! This collection is full of bright, happy colors and so many super cute images and it's perfect for documenting your summer adventures whether its sitting on a gorgeous beach somewhere or in a kiddie pool in your own backyard!
The cover of the album is a large sun shape in a cheery yellow gingham that is layered with more of the vibrant patterned papers along with some of the delightful summertime Puffy Stickers, Enamel Dots, Bits and Pieces and Chipboard. I added in a larger piece of polka dot acetate to add some strength and visual interest to the cover. Since this is such a new collection, there was not a cut file for the sun shape, so I created my own using my Silhouette Cameo.
The inside is just as fun as the cover too! I cut the pages into slightly larger circles and covered them with the dazzling array of paper designs and then heaped on the joyful embellishments and sentiments! Some of the pages just have photos added but there are pockets and frames too, plus a few clever, interactive pages as well! In all, there are twelve pages loaded with all of the charm and loveliness of this collection!
There are three interactive pages in the album. One is on the inside cover and the circles fan out to reveal photos. The other two are circle pages that fold out for additional room for photos or journaling! One page is closed with a chipboard element and the other an embellished tag. Adding extra room this way allows for more pictures and my fave, more embellishing!
This super cute collection will definitely get you excited for the coming Summer and I hope it inspires lots of summertime crafting!
