Hello there! It’s Mendi here today with a quick and simple summer themed layout using more of my favorite Fun In The Sun collection!
I created my visual triangle groupings using the adorable die-cuts and layered stickers from the line. I like to reduce the white outlines when possible around my cuts so I chose to fussy cut them a bit with my scissors.
My title was made easy by one of the great titles provided in the Chips pack. I paired it with some flip-flops from the layered sticker pack which I dressed up with some punched flowers and enamel dots.
For the third corner of my visual triangle I turned to We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board. Not only does this fun tool create large banners, but it can make them as small as one inch wide for your cards and scrapbook pages! Isn’t that cool? For mine I thought it would be fun to add a pair of die-cut sunglasses “hanging” from the line. To add some more dimension to coated the lenses with Glossy Accents. I love the detail this gives them in person.
I thought I would share some close up photos of how I used the newest punch board to make my banners. For the flag style, I cut my paper strip to 1-inch wide and set it down on the board using the 6.5″ guideline in the board.
I closed the magnetic lid and inserted the blade into the channel and cut from one outer edge to the center and then from the other outer edge to the center.
For the Pennant style banner I used the second end, lining it up at the 1.5 inch mark.
I then repeated the same process, starting at the top right corner and then down again for the top left corner.
In just a matter of seconds I had little banner pieces that look like these that were made to perfectly match my layout. 🙂
Before I go, I have a quick card to share using a few scraps I had leftover from the collection. The card’s sentiment serves as sort of a pep talk for myself today. It is with a very heavy heart I have made the decision to step down from the Pebbles team in the coming year. I am sooo thankful to everyone at Pebbles for taking a chance on me and allowing me to work with this amazing company over the past year. I just love the Pebbles family & all their darling products so it’s really hard to say goodbye… I hope you will stop by my blog as I share some news about the next exciting chapter of my life. 😉
