Right now it is a mere 98 degrees here in Minnesota. It’s not always cold here. We do get the heat occasionally, and with that comes the humidity, and then the “feels like” temperature goes up even more.
With there being 10,000 lakes here usually the place to cool off is in the lake. However, for Advisor Beth Thomander and her family of Nova Scotia Canada, cooling off means a jump in the pool. That just sounds refreshing right about now.
How do you beat the heat?
Beth was gracious enough to let me use these photos when creating this layout. Isn’t her son a cutie? …and Beth—-she is just a cutie herself. These photos were perfect for the layout idea I had in mind. My favorite was layering the wave border stickers to make them look dimensional, and the Scallop Burst Border Punch just reminds me of bright beautiful bursts of sunshine!
Take a peek……
To create this layout, you will need:
- Slice of Summer Paper Pack
- Slice of Summer Stickers
- White and Black Cardstock
- Scallop Burst Border Punch
- Tape Runner and Foam Squares
- Black Dual-tip Pen
- 12″ Straight Trimmer
Step 1: Use the Black cardstock as the base for this layout.
Step 2: Cut a piece of White Cardstock to measure 11” x 11”. Adhere to the top of the Black Cardstock.
Step 3: Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper to measure 10-1/2” x 5-1/2”. Adhere to the top of the White Cardstock.
Step 4: Cut 7 pieces from different pieces of patterned paper to measure 1-1/2” x 5”. Adhere to the lower half of the White Cardstock.
Step 5: Punch a border from the Scallop Burst Border Punch with the light blue paper. Adhere to the top edge of the patterned papers.
Step 6: Cut 2 pieces from the pink paper to measure 3-1/2” x 4-1/2”. Adhere at slight angles to the top of the yellow paper.
Step 7: Adhere stickers to the layout, using Foam Squares on some to add dimension.
Step 8: Adhere photos, and journal as desired.
Step 9: Doodle around the outer edges of the yellow paper
