Digital Designs with Michelle Flynn

Hi, friends! Today I’m on the blog sharing how I used the awesome July 2022 Digitals in the summer album I’m currently making. Did you know that digitals are FREE when you are a monthly subscriber?  It really doesn’t get better than that! My favorite part about digitals is that you can use them over and over again as well as change them in any way you are inspired to! They are fabulous for traditional layouts but they are also amazing in smaller-sized projects as well. I was inspired to use them in this TN-sized notebook I’m working on so let’s get started!  

Supplies | July 2022 Kit, July 2022 Cut Files, July 2022 Print and Cut Labels, Star Notes Die Cuts, Everyday Label Puffy Stickers, Magical Memories Tab Stamp

The July 2022 Cut Files are so awesome and I thought it would be fun to use it as a title on a bookmark-sized pocket tag in front of a full-size photo. I selected the pretty sky blue butterfly design paper using the Adventure Paper Stack. I cropped the paper and adhered the sheets together leaving the inside middle space free from adhesive.  

I downloaded the cut file to my Cricut Explore and selected the light blue grid design sheet from the Paper Stack. I cut the digital “summer” title sizing it at 1.6 x 7.5 inches. I used the outline of the title cut file for the front-facing side and adhered it while adding a sweet sentiment using the Everyday Label Puffy Stickers.  

I used the fun July 2022 Print and Cut Labels along with some lined paper from the Adventure Paper Stack to create a mini bookmark for journaling. I wanted it to be interactive and peek out from the bookmark pocket tag. I adhered another puffy and now it was time for the opposite side!

I followed the same process for the opposite side using the negative from the “summer” letters. I used dimensional adhesive to give it extra dimension when it’s laying on top of the full-size photo of my grandson. I added another sweet sentiment like the opposite side using the Everyday Label Puffy Stickers. I trimmed a photo of my grandson around the tiny circle print and cut a label for the backside of the mini bookmark tag and added another label and puffy to wrap it up.  

For my full-sized photo of our sweet little guy, I adhered a blue die cut using the Star Notes Die Cuts. I just love Elle’s die cuts for layering sentiments! I attached the blue heart from the  July 2022 Kit and again added one of my favorites from this release, the Everyday Label Puffy Stickers. I finished it up with a stamped sentiment using the Magical Memories Tab Stamp.  

I love how you can see the top of the mini bookmark journaling tag peeking out using the July 2022 Print and Cut Labels. It’s almost like an invitation to read the notes, and I just love how fun and bold that “summer” title is! I hope you’ll share your inspiration using this month’s digitals, which are just so fun to add to your memorykeeping projects!
