The Sweet Days Of Summer ~ Jackie's Creations

I am excited and a little sad about this post. First, I am excited about the fabulous products in my DT Kit this month! The rubons and papers from Fancy Pants Summer Soiree Collection are gorgeous! But I am a little sad that this is my last post as a Design Team Member for Posh Designs Scrapbook Store. I will still be around the interactive community though and of course I will be reading the blog to get awesome tips, and hear all the new fabulous products coming into the store! I want to thank Nini for this awesome opportunity, it has been amazing! And trust me if you ever get a chance to design for Nini you will love it, she is an awesome boss! And she puts together cool kits!

Now onto today projects! This is a layout of my Daughter and her two best friends. First off, I distressed a brown piece of cardstock, then cropped a super cute patterned piece of paper from this month's DT kit. I also used a border punch to punch along the bottom and top of the paper. I then added two strips of different patterned paper and added a paper clip on top.

Next, I added the word "Summer" using the fun fuzzy alpha stickers from Making Memories Felt Alpha Stickers as you can tell from previous posts I have used these stickers on numerous projects! A single package can go a long way, they are worth every penny! I then added rubons which are also from the Fancy Pants Summer Soiree line and a gorgeous flower from Prima Flower Power - Blush Posies! Followed by a cute little journaling card that also came in the cute paper pack from this month's kit.

I used the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Tiny Attacher to attach my ribbon, and the little quote to a piece of ribbon for a cute little embellishment for my photo! YES, the staples are that tiny.... it is my favourite new tool! If you don't own one, you have to pick one up while you are shopping it is so cool! I then finished off the layout by adding a few buttons!

Now for this next layout, I used a plain piece of yellow cardstock as my base piece of paper. I then inked the edges of a clear 12 x 12 Transparency Overlay also from the Summer Soiree kit. I then used my Crop A Dile to puch holes along the entire right side of my layout and added knots of ribbon.

I then used a border punch to punch along my photo and then matted it on an orange piece of cardstock, I added it to my layout along with a little strip of ribbon and a little quote. I also left the bottom side of my photo unglued so it can double as a pocket to hide my journaling card!

And to finish off my layout I filled in the sun on the overlay with buttons, and also added little beads to a couple of the flourishes!

I hope you enjoyed todays projects. And once again thank you Nini for being so kind and letting me be part of your fabulous team! I will see you all around the Interactive Community!

Happy Scrapping!
