Hooray for a new month! The schools are out here and summer is now in full swing- when it isn't raining here in Houston! The JOT mood board for this month is full of bright, summery colors and icons.
I chose a photo of Lizzy (from her first summer!) asleep in the shade after a swim to document with the pinks, greens and blacks from the mood board. It seemed like the perfect choice since she was wearing a pink hat and laying on a green towel.
"Summer Snooze" Supplies | Cardstock: Bazzill | Patterned Paper: American Crafts (pink stripe, black polka dot) Crate Paper (red & pink geometric, black on white polka dot), Studio Calico (green arrow), My Mind's Eye (green solid), Basic Grey (green ticket), Chickaniddy Crafts (pink & red arrow) | Embellishments: Pink Paislee (black alphas), American Crafts (pink alphas, camera sticker), Crate Paper ('e' die-cut, green date label, butterfly, pink frame), Simple Stories (black heart sticker, enamel dots), Elle's Studio (watermelon card- sneak of the June kit!), Fancy Pants (flair button)
I rummaged through my stash searching for products with bright pinks, reds, greens and black. Having a color scheme in mind made the process so much faster for me.
To create the scalloped piece on the left side of the layout, I first found a piece of scalloped patterned paper from an old Studio Calico kit and used it as a template to add my own circles, punched from patterned paper, on top.
Once all of my patterned paper was down, it was a quick process to embellish and finish the layout. I like using a mix of cardstock and chipboard elements, along with hard embellishments, like enamel dots, to give some variety to the page.
