Dapper Dog Days of Summer with Kat Benjamin

Happy Friday, friends! It’s Kat here, and I am so excited to share a new layout that I recently created with the July kit and extras. I love how bright and summery this kit is, so I knew it would be perfect for documenting a photo of my dog, Moose, all ready for summer:

I began by cutting the July 2022 Cut Files first. I knew I wanted a sun in my background, since I was highlighting my pup’s summer look. I misted around the file while it was still on the adhesive mat and let it dry there. I’ve always found this keeps the cardstock from getting wrinkled as the mist dries.  I also cut out the “summer” die cut file from a piece of black adhesive cardstock and backed it with the striped paper from the Adventure Paper Stack.  

I then picked out some of my favorite 3 x 4-inch tags from the kit to add on either side of my photo. I also cut the green “life is good” tag from the July 2022 Kit down a bit to add it as a tab at the top of my cluster.

I finished the layout by adding my title along the bottom of my photo and then sprinkled around a variety of stars using the Star Notes Die Cuts and the Puffy Star Stickers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to share your July 2022 monthly kit and add-ons creations with us on social media using the #EllesStudio hashtag!
