Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! We still have a few more weeks of Summer adventures left but I couldn’t wait to start documenting some of our photos from this Summer with the Elizabeth Collection from Felicity Jane! This collection is full of so many fun elements and beautiful colors that will be great for documenting all of your Summer memories. Check out my process video at the end of the post to see the full process for this today’s layout.
In June, my boys and I flew up to Idaho to see my mom for a few days...we didn’t get many photos because we were so busy and having way too much fun! I did get a few shots of the boys playing on the lake at Eagle Island State Park and thought they’d work perfect with the beachy vibe of the Elizabeth Collection.
I wanted to maintain the soft, muted vibe of the collection so I edited the photos to match and then matted them on some Felicity Jane patterned papers to bring in a little more color.
I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple but brought in some interest by using a variety of textures. I cut strips of the scalloped patterned paper and turned them to look like waves. I have a variety of decorative stitches on my sewing machine so I used a wave like stitch and some silver thread to add detail in between the strips of paper. A couple of Elizabeth | Chipboard Shapes and I got the beach vibe I was going for.
For the title, “Idaho Summer”, I embossed one of the stamp sentiments onto some black paper, trimmed it into a banner shape, and mixed it with some of the Elizabeth | Chipboard Alpha Stickers. A chipboard umbrella and lemon die cut piece help bring attention to the title on the busy background.
I wanted to keep the top of the layout pretty simple since there was so much going on towards the bottom so I just added on of the Elizabeth | Layered Stickers.
Journaling tags in a pocket are starting to become a signature for me in my scrapbooking layouts and this one wasn’t any different. I typed out my journaling on some white paper and then used a tag die to cut out my journaling as well as the front of the tag from some polka dot paper. I finished it off with a scrap of pink fabric that was lying on my desk. When adhering down my photos, I only added adhesive to three sides of the photo so there would be a secret pocket to tuck the tag into.
That’s it! Pretty simple but I love all of the fun, textured details on this layout. You can see the full process in the video below and don’t forget to head on over to the shop and grab the Elizabeth Collection for all of your Summer projects!
Until next time!
