Summer Lovin'

Keeping in with the sunshiney weather we are lucky to be experiencing here in the UK (okay, fingers crossed I haven't just jinxed it), I am sharing a couple of pages I created for A Trip Down Memory Lane gallery in May, these two are using the beautiful Rusted Sun collection by Fancy Pants.

For this first one, I cut apart the glitter transparency title and used it across both sides of the main photo - this not only frames the focal photo but also adds movement across the page. I doodled scalloped edges on the background cardstock and cut around for an extra whimsical touch.

Patterned paper - Fancy Pants
Glittered transparency - Fancy Pants
Cardstock - Bazzill
Chipboard alphabet - American Crafts
Pen - American Crafts
Stamps - Art Warehouse (circle sentiment), journal block unknown
Stamping Ink - Stazon
Other - stick on pearls
Font - Fineliner script

I stamped a circle sentiment to frame the 'a' section of the title to add interest and cover up unwanted white space in the photo.

This next page is a simple design but with lots of added layered embellishments for interest. I stamped the bracket shaped journal blocks direct onto the background cardstock by masking the areas around them and also each other. The oversized photo corners are created by cutting up a VERY old leather frame.

Patterned paper - Fancy Pants
Label Stickers - October Afternoon
Word Tickets - Tim Holtz
Letter Stickers - Adornit
Phrase Sticker and rub-on - K&Co
Leather scalloped frame - Making Memories
Stamping Ink - Stazon
Stamp - unknown
Border punch - Fiskars
Others - buttons and brads

I added interest to the centre of the sun by embellishing with buttons and brads (the large green concho framing the largest button is another very old embellishment, by Scrapworks).

I'm off now to take advantage of said sunshine by getting as much laundry as possible outside drying! Hope you have a much more fun day planned :)
