The first project focused on the I Love Big Books mini kit. This kit was so much fun to work with and if you are an avid reader, its perfect for you.
I really loved the ombre library cards and used them for the background for this spread in my summer mini. I then printed off cover images of all of the books I have read so far this summer and layered them on top.
I added in some of the stamps and then stamped part of my title using the new Walter alpha stamp set. I did outline the stamps using the Dalton alpha set because it coordinates perfectly. The ink I used on the Summer title was an ombre ink from the Recollections brand and I love how that ombre ties in with the cards.
My second project focused on the Tastes Like Summer stamp set. I loved this stamp set because it covered so many tasty parts of summer. If you love to hit up the fruit stand or the farmers markets this stamp set is for you.
Fashion ink set. I love how the color paired so well with my cardstock. It gave it just enough oomph to keep it from being too boring.
To finish off the spread I added in some more of the phrases that came in the stamp set, I mean Live Juicy, so cute! I then layered some cards that came in the Studio Calico Pool Party Documenter kit with my photo of our farm stand purchase. The strawberry card as well as the rubber strawberry were the perfect accents for this story.
There was also another really cool alpha set called Everett and I cannot wait to use this one. I have never seen anything like it and can't wait to find the perfect layout or project to use it on.
I have also heard that the pre-orders of all of the new Holiday sets should be shipping at the end of next week so if you haven't checked them out, now is the time. I'm so in love with all of these cute holiday city stamps and of course the Thanksgiving planner stamps because Thanksgiving is my favorite meal, I mean who doesn't love stuffing.
I hope you have a great week and I'll see you soon!
