My husband and boys recently returned from their annual fishing trip to Canada;
quite the jaunt for some guys from Texas, but they literally catch hundreds
of fish and look forward to the trip months in advance. I sent my old point & shoot
camera with them as was thrilled at some of the
scrapbook-page-worthy photos that they captured!
While thumbing through the 12 x 12 papers, the ombre side B of the
Maui Patterned Paper caught my eye and reminded me of water as it gets deeper.
I cut the paper down to 11 x 11 and centered it onto a sheet of white cardstock
before machine stitching around the edge. Next, I decided on the journal card,
“The time of our lives”, and used a 3.5″ circle die to cut it out.
I stayed with the circle theme and proceeded to cut a large, yellow mat from the
Trunk Bay Patterned Paper; I used a 9″ plate as the template. Next,
I used the remainder of the journal card pattern to cut out smaller 1.5″ circles.
For the title, I cut apart the “Hello Summer” Puffy Sticker and attached
it around the contour of the round journal card.
I placed the smaller circles in a fashion to resemble bubbles and accented
with several shapes from the Gold Foam Shapes. Finally, I used a ruler and
thin-tipped black pen to draw on lines for journaling at the bottom. I love the
versatility of the “Solstice” Collection and how you can fashion it around any
Summer activities whether it be a trip to the beach, camping or a fishing trip to Canada :)
