Sharing a layout - Summer is Calling

Here's a quick look at a layout I made last week...

I started with a white textured cardstock background which is something I rarely do. Idk why it looks blue in this pic - grr! This pic focuses on the title block that I arranged in the top left corner. I layered strips of paper, a PL style cut-apart card and some other embellishments to create a cohesive space.

Here's the same section but a little bit lower on the page.

At the bottom of the page I arranged strips of paper horizontally to provide a bit of interest on the page and to pick up on the patterns and colors I'd introduced in my title block. I also added an embellishment sticker to some of the white space in the photo on the right.

Here's a look at the finished layout. I'm thrilled that I managed to fit three almost full size pics on a single layout. Winning! Notice that I don't have any journaling on this page. It's because I don't know the story of the day. Really, I just liked the pics and wanted to play with some fun product. It's Kelsey's story, not mine. I could have called and gotten her information about the evening and recorded it here for her, but that really wasn't the purpose of this page. Sometimes, I just like to make a page with pretty stuff and not have a big story to tell. And that's okay.

Were you crafty this weekend? I wasn't, and I can already tell that I'm missing it. Looks like I'll have to try to find a way to fit in some crafty time at some point this week before I leave for Mexico. I know; I know it's hard to feel sorry for me. Haha! Peace out!


  1. I made a layout on Friday and edited some pictures so I could get prints made up. But I feel like I didn't get much done. And weekend days go by about four times as fast as weekdays -- someone should look into that. :-)

  2. I love this!!!!!!!! One of my faves you've done. :)
