I loved creating with this month's kit, it has loads of goodies from the Simple Stories "Summer Days" collection and a few things from the Photo Play "Summer Bucket List" collection in it! And I was definitely in the mood to create summery pages!! Check out the kit contents.
I feel like there is a pattern happening with my MCS DT pages, my first share is once again the third page that I created! There is sort of a method to that though. I have committed to doing two process videos a month for the team, so I try to do that first, just in case something goes wrong with a video or layout. That way I can always make another if need be.
I really wanted to use this bold orange dotted paper prominently on a layout, it was just so juicy and happy looking! I decided to make it my background, but added in a bit of white cardstock to keep the page from being too overwhelming.
I added in narrow strips of striped paper to each side of the cardstock panel and some stitching, too.
I used this chipboard banner along with the alpha stickers from the kit to create my title. I embellished my title with some machine stitching and a few phrase stickers, plus this little camera sticker.
My journaling was written on a tag that I hand cut from a cut apart card, and reads "Kayaking to a little island and lunching on a rock is a new summer fav!" I tell you this kid never went kayaking without a couple of sandwiches in tow, last summer!
This sun element is a combination of a fussy cut piece with a die cut embellishment layered over top of it. I sandwiched craft foam in the centre to give it a little pop.
I used three embellishment clusters around my photo, but also added a small one on the top right of my layout. Once I had everything arranged on my page how I liked it I added some teal Gelatos and Distress Crayon to the white cardstock to make it a little less stark and slightly more reminiscent of water.
