Live in the Sunshine...

Hi!  It's Lisa here today to share a new and bright layout with you today!  I love when Vanessa sends us surprises from the store (thanks Vanessa!), and one of the surprises in my last DT kit was a pack of the I Heart Summer Pocket Pages by Simple Stories.  I have never really used pockets before on my layouts, but I was intrigued and determined to do so.  As I kept looking them over I thought why use pockets in the traditional form?  Instead I chose to use mine as my title and backdrop for my photo.  I LOVE the results.  Let me share a few more details on how this layout came together...

Here are the products I have used (missing the white embossing paste):

I began this layout by creating some texture with a stencil and Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste :

I also added a few spritz of blue.  I then adhered my pocket, photo and Jillibean Soup placemat:

I then finished my layout with embellishments such as: Chic Tags Cloud 9 Acetate Shapes, Sequins, Washi Tape, and Market Street Enamel Dots:

  • Use your xyron machine(s) to adhere acetate accents.
  • Find unconventional uses for your supplies like I've done with my pocket.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
