Back To School Count Down (Pink Paislee)

Summer is winding down and school is around the corner.  We have been busy purchasing our new supplies and being sure we have everything we need for the 1st day of school!  My son is excited to go back and ready to start his first year of middle school but we still have some summer fun happening so to help us all keep track of how many days we have until school starts I made this cute count down display!

I picked this little easel up at craft store a while back and it was perfect for this project. I went strait for the Switchboard Collection from Pink Paislee for this project and I just loved how the chipboard poloroid frame worked out!  I put that on with pop dots on the side an the bottom, leaving the top open.  This would allow me to add a photo to this later on - maybe the first day of school photo!

Multi Photos > Summertime School (Pink Paislee)

I tend to be  1 or 2 photo per layout scrapbooker but there are times I want to include more and today I am going to share a unique way to do this!  Take a look at this layout I made with the Hello Sunshine Collection from Pink Paislee!

I know, it looks like only one photo but wait!  I used little transparency pockets for each photo and then stacked them so they would flip open like a book!

Each of these photos are from one of our many summer activities - no need to let their brains turn to mush while school is out!

Lovely Cards! (Scrapbook Circle)

WOW!  That is the word that sums up the newest Island Paradise Kit from Scrapbook Circle!   This kit is bursting with bold and vibrant colors and such a unique mix of papers and embellishments!  Today I have combined the Island Paradise kit and the Bungalow Add-on to make a few cards!

SC Card 1

This first card showcases how a little can go a long way!  Because the colors and patterns of the paper are bold they work wonderfully in small doses.  Here I cut out a few pennants and sewed them on to the card and added one of the cork sentiments!  I love using my sewing machine on my cards!

SC Card 2

This second card is a little stronger with a mix of patterns colors and shapes!  I am excited to brighten someones day with these cards!

Hello Summer (Pink Paislee)

I am head over heals into the new Solstice Collection from Pink Paislee this month and I just can't put it down!  I am using this new collection to document one of my families favorite things to do in the summer - read in the hammock!  I just love the feeling of swinging back an forth on a warm summer day while taking in a good book or magazine!

HelloSummer@SaraZenger@PinkPaislee, #pinkpaislee, #diy, #Scrapbook, #solsitce

I wanted a simple style to this layout so that the focus was drawn into the black and white photo.  I just love the colors in the collection, they are soft but then when you and the pop of gold accents they really stand out!

I just can't get enough Solstice, especially those little little gold foam shapes!
