Cosmo Cricket 'Salt Air'

Have you seen Cosmos Cricket's 'Salt Air' line in the store.  What a fun line to use for summer water pictures; at the beach, on holidays, or in the tub. 
I picked up 4 patterned papers; 2 Deckchairs for my background and 1 Fish tales for matting and extras and 1 Border piece.

I love that they're all double sided.  To get my stripy border I cut a 3" strip from my background, flipped it over and attached it back on using a strip from the Border sheet to hide the join. 

The border strips are perfect for making rosette flowers.  I see rosettes everwhere so I decided to give them a go.  I used a 6" length the width of whichever border strip I chose and folded them back and forth in about 1/4" increments. So easy! I punched little circles and distressed them for the centers and added a Kaiser jewel. 

I used another of the Border strips for my journaling bits. I just tore each piece out and stacked them on top of each other before writing out my story.

I like to tuck tags behind my photos as an embellishment. These ones are outlined in black ink and then I scattered a few buttons.
I think my favourite rosette is the bright coloured stripy one.
I tucked a couple of Prima's pink hydrangeas below the rosettes and title sticker (Jolees) and scattered some Kaiser jewels around it all. I even put a few on my photos.
And here's the finished layout.  I used more of the Border strips to ground my photos.  The alphabet letters are from another Cosmo Cricket line I had in my stash.

Don't you love the pink flip flops?  Those are Jolee's stickers.

July Kit Class

Join me on Wednesday, July 27th at 7pm and get all those summer memories scrapbooked. It hasn't been that nice out this summer but my family has managed to make some great memories and we still have a couple more weeks to go! We will be using 100 Days of Summer by Simple Stories. I have created 6 two page layouts and one single pager. Kit includes instructions for one two pager to be completed in class and then tips and pictures to complete the other additional layouts. In the past, we have been able to complete 3 or 4 of these layouts in class. Wow, you should be able to get caught up with this opportunity. You also have the creative freedom to change all titles and embellishments. This package is available as a kit or offered as a class. It is $35.00 for members and $40.00 for non members. To complete the additional layouts you will need craft paper, coordinating cardstock and some chipboard letters.
