Summer Fun | Simple Stories | Sunkissed Collection

Thursday 27 May 2021


Hi everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Simple Stories and I’m using the Sunkissed Collection which is bright and happy summery collection.

I particularly love yellow so was drawn to the yellow paper in the collection that have loopy lines all over it. I trimmed this down, distressed the edges and stuck it to a white background.

I decided to go with a circle theme for this layout and used the SN@P! Circle Photo Crops to cut down my photos. I also used a smaller Circle Crop to trim the 2” squares from one of the cut-apart sheets into circles too. I cut more circles from patterned papers from the 6x8” paper pad and I cut white circles too.

I made some cute rosettes too. I cut strips of the diagonal striped paper 12” long but varying widths (1.5”, 1” and ¾” and scored every ¼”. I concertina folded the strips, glued the ends together and flattened into rosette shapes which I secured on the back with a punched white circle.

I arranged my photos, rosettes and all those beautiful patterned paper circles onto my bright yellow background and added a sun from the Foam Stickers and a title. I made the title from the word ‘summer’ from the Foam Stickers, and ‘fun’ from the alphabet stickers within the Sunkissed Sticker Book.

I stuck some circle stickers from the Sticker Book onto white card and punched them out with circle punches so that I had some little circles to dot around the layout and use as embellishments. Sticking them onto cardstock first makes them more sturdy, particularly so that I could raise them on foam pads.

I added more Foam Stickers: phrases and cute hearts. I added a few of the adorable Puffy Stickers too and then dotted enamel dots in between my circles.

I finished off with a few white paint splatters!

This layout turned out so fun and bright! I love the end result and it was a pleasure to create with the Sunkissed collection. Roll on summer here in the UK so that I can use it for our upcoming summer adventures!

Happy scrapping
