Hello friends and welcome! I have a fun, new layout to share with you today using the Hello Sunshine cut file.
The weather in Texas is finally warm enough for a nice, relaxing day at the pool. My grandkids were so excited to finally go swimming and I was happy to snap some pool-side photos!
I am using Simple Stories Vintage Coastal collection for this layout. I cut the file on some textured white cardstock and backed it with one of the patterned papers from the collection. My background is very busy, so I went with a bright coral pattern for the sun and a lighter color for the the words. I also added some foam adhesive to the cut file to give it some dimension so it stood apart from the busy background. Lastly, I used a watercolor brush marker to add a little watercolor detail to the letters in the title and sun.
This collection has a lot of collage-type elements and so I decided to really play off of that design and use it to create two big clusters of embellishments on either side of the title and photo. I layered lots of stickers from the 12.x 12 sticker sheet and used foam adhesive to lift some of the elements and left some stuck flat to the page. I really think this “ collage feel” adds a lot of interest to the design.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope this layout gives you some warm, summer vibes and a little inspiration! Be sure to stop by the Cut to You blog and check out all the great summer themed cut files!
