For those with a green thumb, summertime means one thing – gardening season. Many people like to grow flowers, shrubs and their own food or go out and pick fresh produce; some do it for the health benefits, others for affordability and some because they just enjoy the process! No matter what your reason is, if you enjoy gardening and picking fresh produce as much as you like you enjoy scrapbooking and being crafty, we’ve got two fun ways to combine the two hobbies! Blog contributor Kristin lays out two different produce-related projects that she likes taking on after she harvests the fruits of her labor, including a unique canning decoration and a beautiful berry picking project, which would also make a great gardening scrapbook layout. Check them out!
Have you had a great summer full of fun memories and want to make a summer scrapbook that does them justice? As we enter the end of July, now is the perfect time to look back at some of the past scrapbook layouts for summer that we’ve created and do a #ThrowbackThursday to re-create them! We’ve got one for you today that you’ll love… it’s a Slice of Summer layout that was featured on the blog last August, and this time we’ve created it using Sun-Kissed! So, as the sun continues to beat down and make the outdoors feel like the inside of an oven, now might be a great time to keep cool in your craft room and revisit the layout to make one (or a few!) for all of the summer memories you’ve made in 2018.
