Ahhh, Summer

I have never been more ready for Summer than I am this year. I am looking forward to the long days of relaxing by the pool. Summer was the inspiration behind this Wednesday Layout.

Just stop by the store and purchase the papers, ribbons and buttons I used to make this layout and you will get a copy of the instructions and the free element.

The free elements for this layout are the title and subtitle.

I stamped both using acrylic stamps and fired brick Distress ink.

Here are the instructions for the layout:

You will need one sheet of each: Whipped Cream, Frozen Strawberries, Cup of Sour Cream, Anejo Cheese and brown cardstock. One package Jenni Bowlin red buttons, small brads, 1 yd of the red ribbon and the brown ribbon.

Cut strawberry paper into two 6x12 pieces for the top of the background. Add 12” strip of brown ribbon to the bottom ½” of the strawberry paper. Cut two 12x1½ “ strips of red dotted paper and adhere over top of the ribbon leaving about 3/8” of the brown ribbon peaking out of the top. Cut two 12x5¼ ” pieces of the brown cardstock. Adhere it to the bottom of the red dotted paper leaving 1” of the dotted paper showing above the brown.

Cut the green paper into a 12x8 ½ rectangle and attach to the left side of the layout coming slightly over the center line. Cut the Whipped Cream paper into a 10½ x7½ rectangle and use a 1½ “circle punch to create the decorative effect in the corner, or trace the pattern provided and cut. Adhere in the center of the green paper with the plain kraft paper side showing. Cut another rectangle out of the green paper 6 ¼ x 3 and trim off two of the corners to make a tag, or use the Tim Holts Tag & Bookplates L Die like I did. Add red ribbon to the tag and add to layout in the lower left corner. Cut two more pieces out of the red dotted paper, 3 ½ x 4 ¼ and 8 ¼ x 2. Use them to mat the title pieces that I have provided and add to layout. Add buttons to layout using Wonder Tape. Cut a little ¾ x 1 ¼ “ rectangle, cut off two corners to create a mini tag. Add mini brad and message to tag. Add three photos 3 ¼ x 4.
