Capturing Summer with Jamie Leija

Hiya, it’s Jamie! This month’s kit plus the Sunny Days collection, just begs to be used for your summer memories! I put together this fun page highlighting my favorite summer pastimes.

ES-SummerPastimes01Products used: Sunny Days 12×12 Paper Collection, Sunny Days 6×6 Paper Stack, Sunny Days Stamp, Sunny Days Bits & Pieces, Sunny Days Puffy Stickers, Sunny Days Word Labels
July 2016 Cut File, July 2016 Monthly Kit, Favorite Acrylic, Stars Acrylic, and Letters & Numbers – Pink.


The “Favorite” acrylic was the starting point for the page. So combining it with the summer, I got to my favorite summer pastimes: reading, relaxing by the pool, sipping iced tea, scrapbooking and also just resting and hanging out! With the craziness of the beginning of the year, I wanted to make sure this summer was filled with plenty of resting and recharging activities. I included photos of my summer reading stack and the family relaxing by the pool.

I love a good pie chart and there were so many available this month, from the journaling tag to the acrylic pieces to the cut file. I opted for the cut file and backed it with paper from the 12×12 Paper Collection and 6×6 paper stack.

To highlight the five activities, I used the label stamp from the Sunny Days stamp set, cut them out and placed them around the page. I also added a few acrylic stars and tags from the monthly kit to finish the page.

It’s a fun page that I think captures this season of my life! Now back to my summer of scrapbooking, reading and relaxing! I hope you get time for some of that too!
