Good Vibes | Step-By-Step Tutorial | My Creative Scrapbook

Hello friends! I've got another step-by-step for one of the layouts I created for My Creative Scrapbook. Today's layout was made using the August Creative kit, featuring the Sunkissed collection from Simple Stories. I scrapped a photo of my youngest and one of his friends on the beach:

Isn't this summer photo just perfect for this collection?! 

Here's a quick step-by-step of how this page came together, starting with a photo of all the supplies I thought I might use:

The sheet with all the tags really stood out for me, so I thought I would go with that one:

I cut out 5 tags to create a horizontal row on my page:

Below the tags I wanted a bit of blue paint and achieved this by transferring the blue paint with a piece of plastic on to my white background cardstock:

Next I placed the tags on top of the part with the blue paint: 

I threaded a piece of twine throught the holes of the tags and machine stitched them all to the background cardstock:

I placed the matted photo on top of the tags and embellished around it: die-cuts on the right side of the photo, the chipboard banner above the tags, a chipboard title below the photo, etc.:

Last but not least I added a bit of handwritten journaling and stamped the date! Hope you like it!! 
Here are a few close-ups of the finished page:

Here's a photo of the August Creative Kit:

New August kits from @MyCreativeScrapbook & a large photo layout

Hello everyone! It's August and that means the new kits from the kit club My Creative Scrapbook have been revealed! This month I got the Creative kit filled with the Sunkissed collection from Simple Stories! I adore this collection so was very happy!! 

Here's the first layout I created with it:

I love using large photos on my scrapbook pages and decided on using one for this page. The waves on the right side of the photo are part of a free subscriber cut file and was cut with my Silhouette. 

I added loads of die-cuts on the right side of the photo as well. 

Loving the result! 

Here's a quick look at the Creative kit:
