I am so thrilled to be with you today to share some of what I have created with the amazing Fun in the Sun collection. Hi, my name is Wendy, and I love to document our everyday with pretty papers! For me, as a mom of 6 (and yes we homeschool), I want to document everything, but I have to be quick about my creating.
My first project came together as soon as I poured out the die-cut pieces, they just begged to be grouped together and displayed with some fun summer pictures!
I worked on my center frame first as that was my “title” piece for the frame. I did add/rearrange a few pieces, but mainly I stayed with my original design and I added in a little sand for a fun summer look.
I love how the puffy stickers work so well with the die-cuts as the splashes were the same size.
And one last frame featuring beach time.
I have found that the 3×4 cards that are made for Project Life style scrapping fit my style perfectly, they give me a quick title or saying and they are a lot of fun to layer.
I began by gathering my favorite 3×4 cards, a cute photo, die-cuts to match, and paper. As you can see, I almost always go with my first impression and tweak that design.
Once my basic page is established (or my photo block as I usually refer to) I begin adding in areas of interest, usually with fun clusters. I also like to dress up my 3×4 cards to add interest.
My last layout was created from my leftovers. Once I begin cutting into my patterned paper I like to cut the leftovers into 3×4 and 4×6 pieces to allow me to create quickly with lots of layers like I enjoy.
Summer Chill Out
I started layering a few fun papers with the colors I wanted to bring into my page to match my photos creating my photo block. Then came the embellishing of the page, to add interest, and to further establish my theme.
And some title work… You can see in these details that I added some vellum, cut files, and sewing all in white for texture/interest, without taking from my page.
Thanks so much for a chance to share with you today, I hope you’ve enjoyed and will take some time to document your everyday!
