Banner Trio | Pool Party | Nicole Bingaman

Hi there! Nicole here and I am back sharing another project using a fun summer themed cut file, Pool Party. I thought the cute little unicorn floatie would perfect to pair with some photos from a pool party we had for my son’s birthday.

I started my process by inking an entire sheet of white textured cardstock with three colors of blue ink and a wave border stencil. I also sprinkled some water all over to give it more texture and play into the water themes.

I cut the main Pool Party digital cut file out with textured white cardstock. I also cut out two of the banner pieces from the Banner Trio cut file.

Both banner pieces I backed with paper scraps in tone on tone designs. I found some older summer papers and used those to back the floatie image and the title piece to bring in some fun and vibrant colors.

After I back cut files I like to stash dive for stickers and die cuts that I tuck here and there to bring more layers and dimension to the cut files that are mostly just paper. I think this just give more interest and it’s fun to look through supplies for fun pieces to use up.

I finished the layout with computer printed journal strips popped up with foam strips and made sure to remember to stamp the date so this layout is ready to go into my 2020 album.

I have a process video linked below sharing how I created the layout and would love for you to check it out.
