I have a layout to share with you today using the April SP Kit. I had a lot of fun making this one because I pulled out a tool I haven’t been using very much -my electronic die cutter (Cricut).
All the papers & embellishments used are from the A Perfect Summer collection from Echo Park. This collection was part of the April SP monthly kit.
I also used a stamp from the Summer Fun Sentiments mini set for one of the tags next to the photo. I just stamped it on a strip of patterned paper from the kit. I stamped it using the new Ocean Waves Premium Chalk Ink Pad. It matched the papers really well.
In addition to what came with the monthly kit, I used the following other items from the same Echo Park collection: Decorative brad, chipboard shapes, and an Orange/Teal solid paper. All of these additions are available in the SP Store now.
The sun, pail/bucket, and beach ball were all die cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge. Sun @ 3inches, pail/bucket @ 3.5inches, and beach ball @ 2inches.
To cut out the shapes I used a mixture of patterned papers and cardstocks. The one cool thing I did was I cut the sand layer out using WHITE cardstock and then I inked up the shape using our new Sandcastle Chalk Ink Pad. I just LOVE THIS COLOR! It is the perfect sandy color. I also added a little bit of doodling along the sandy layer with a white gel pen.
Here are some close-ups:
I really liked how this layout turned out overall. This collection is one of my fave summery collections that I have used. Maybe I love it so much because I am ready for summer 🙂
Anyhoo. . . That’s all for today! I will catch you tomorrow with another Sunday Scoop. I will have some good things to talk about for this Sunday Scoop so stay tuned! Have a great one!
