Hey Cut To You friends! Erica back with you today to share a summer time layout using the Good Time Summer Fine cut file!

For my summer 12×12 layout I cut out the Good Time Summer Fine cut file with some American Crafts White Textured cardstock! I backed the file with 6×8 pattern papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection! I love all the bright summery colors in this collection and the florals are so pretty!

Once the file was backed I added foam adhesive all over the back of the cut file to give it some dimension. I pulled out another piece of white textured cardstock and wanted to added some blue splatter to the background. I used 2 inks from Catherine Pooler that are that perfect summer blue! Cummerbundand Daydream worked great together and remind me of water behind the cut file.

Once the background was dry I trimmed it down to 11.50×11.50 and matted it onto a piece of 12×12 pattern paper from the Sunkissed collection. I am using two photos from our recent camping trip that I snapped while we were taking a break from swimming. 

I matted them using 6×8 papers from the Sunkissed collection and nestled them into each side of the cut file. I used ephemera and puffy stickers to embellish around the page and pulled out some epoxy flair from the Scrappin Happy Studio shop
