I wanted to share my Summer Of '69 layouts with you guys. It's bittersweet because it is my very last gallery ever at SC.
I had a wonderful time creating this month and when I was done I felt like everything was so meaningful and special to me.
That's a great feeling,right? I will miss contributing every month!
And Then There Was Joy
Some of the accents in the kit came in a little glassline envelope. I punched the envelope with my Stampin Up heart punch and used the hearts to circle the sweet photo.The rest of it is pretty self explanatory. Simple and sweet. :)
One Tough Princess
This one is all about how I believe it is possible to have tough, spunky,strong princesses.I hand cut the little banner from patterned paper.
The blue strip at the bottom is MME washi tape, which I LOVE.
Out and About
I really wanted to document the wonderful girfriends I had in Savannah,so I did a page about our girls night out. Lots of fun accents here (including that MME washi again) and the title work is playful, to match the theme. I can't get enough of these sweet butterflies. I think they are so ethereal and pretty.
True and Pure
I wanted this one to feel romantic and sweet, hence the florals,ribbons,and laces.
I cut the center out of a doily and used it to frame the photo on the left. The black and white photo is not very good quality (blurry iPhone pic) and I wanted to "pretty it up" with a doily frame.
I adore these little dipped confetti tags in the kit and I used them right up.
This was a great kit for me to go out with. Very "me" and this layout confirms that.
I wanted to acknowledge that this was my last month at SC so I made a layout thanking SC (the members,actually) for my time there.
I made a collage of past favorite SC kit layouts,printed it,and "framed it" with October Afternooon washi tape.
A handcut flower, some simple title work and journaling around the frame complete the page.
This one was emotional for me in the end, and I didn't expect that.
Splash mini album (click on any photo to make it larger)
I am not usually a mini person,but I really wanted to put all the photos in one album. I cut a piece of chipboard into 4x4 pieces. Each instagram is 3x3.
The cover is embossed using Aqua Zing and the SC chevron stamp.
This is VERY simple, I am not a mini expert. Washi and October afternoon label and phrase stickers and that's it.
So...there it is. The end of an era. Thanks for everything, SC. :)
