I started my page by cutting one of The Cut Shoppe’s fun cut files: “Summertime Circles” from white cardstock. I grabbed all the little pieces of paper I had saved from the last time I used the Here Comes The Sun collection and used these the adhere behind the letters “Summer Fun”.
Next I also adhered some patterned paper behind the sun and it’s rays. I matted my photo on to two 3×4 journaling cards; one with gold stripes and with gold hearts. Now I added lots of embellishments, like the hot air balloon, the sentiment, the hearts and the clouds die-cuts on the right side of my photo:
And the fabulous flair button and the word sticker on the other side of the photo:
The flamingo and heart die-cuts came next, just like the word sticker and the date stamp:
Now I had finished the circle I had to decide what to use for the background. First I tried white on white, but that was way too white for me! So I selected four of my 8″x 8″ patterned papers and cut them to 6″x 6″ minus 1 cm and adhered them to the white cardstock background. Next I glued the circle on top, machine stitched the lot and added a black doodled line along the side of the circle and I was done!
And this is the digital cut file from The Cut Shoppe I used: Summertime Circles
I really love the result! Hope you do too!
