Summer Life with Guest Becki Adams

Today we’re welcoming guest Becki Adams back to the blog to share a fun, summer layout that brings a ton of color and pattern to her album, not to mention some special memories! Let’s take a look at Becki’s gorgeous layout!

Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! I’m Becki Adams, here to share with you a fun layout that I created with the June kit and add-ons. I had SO much fun creating with these new products to create this fun, summer-themed layout. 

Supplies | June 2022 Kit, Cerulean Blue Cardstock Label Stickers, Summer Cardstock Stickers, The Best Paper Stack, Pocket Tabbed Metal Dies

When I opened the box of Elle’s Studio goodies, one of the first things I fell in love with was the The Best Paper Stack and the Summer Cardstock Stickers. I wanted to use a LOT of these products on a layout. 

The first thing I did was to cut several strips of patterned paper at various widths and lengths. I wanted to create a colorful patterned paper along the top and bottom of the layout. When I had the strips in place, I stitched down the center of each strip with my sewing machine and white thread. 

In the center of the layout, I cut out three tabbed pocket cards with the Pocket Tabbed Metal Dies. Then I adhered a photo that is slightly smaller than 3 x 4-inches in the center of each card. Below the photo in the middle and the photo on the right, I created my title using the Summer Cardstock Stickers. I wanted the yellow tile stickers to have a white border to coordinate with the rest of the title, so I simply placed those stickers on a scrap of white cardstock and adhered the white cardstock to the background. The “life is good” portion of the title was adhered with foam adhesive.

To finish the layout, I added a few starfish stickers from the Summer Cardstock Stickers. I am so happy with how this layout came together and you can watch my process in the video below!

I’m so grateful to Meghann and Elle for having me create with these gorgeous products! I had so much fun and I’m so happy to have these products to help me to tell the story of our summer. I am excited to see what you’re creating with the June 2022 kits and add-ons. Happy crafting, my friends!
