"lazy days of summer"

We ALL love Summer. Whether we are relaxing by the pool or taking the kids to the water park or my favorite "The Beach".

Hope you love this layout.

I made this layout using "Life's A Beach". The paper is My Minds Eye Surf's Up.

The turtle was cut at 2" inked and pop dotted.

The lifeguard stand was cut at 5". I cut the image and words first and then cut also at 5" just the chair in white and brown. I offset the orange paper just a bit so you could see it. I inked with Orange Marmalade by Tim Holtz. Then of course using my white pen I spruced it up a little. The sun was cut at 3".

I then cut the hibiscus in a border at 3" and cut the individual flowers at 2 1/2 in all 3 colors and inked with Walnut Stain. Using a pop dot also. And of course my white pen.

I just love this. I cut the sand castle at 2 1/2" and the pail at 1" For the sand pile I just tore a small piece of tan cardstock and embossed with Swiss Dots and inked

Ok-These guys are soo cute. These were cute at 3" and 2 1/2" with 2 layers and embossed with tiny bubbles and inked with the Orange Marmalade with a few white dots and a brown dot for the eye and a few pop dots.

The photo mats can be cut anyway you would like them. The dimensions are as follows: Left side of layout-Journal Box 3 1/2x2 3/8, 3 3/4x 2 3/4 & 4x3. Right side of layout-2 of them at 4 1/2x 5 3/8,4 1/2 x5 3/4 & 4x4 1/2.

Fun on July 4th

I have a giveaway. Become a follower and leave a comment here for your chance to win. It is that easy.

I have to say this was such a fun layout.

I made this 2 page layout with "Independence Day". The paper I used was from Die Cuts With A View-Summer Dreams Premium stack. I used my Cutterped zigzag blade to make the edges. I inked everything with Tim Holtz-Brick.
In doing this page I cut the rocket at 3inches inking the blast and used stickles to make it shine.

The frames for the rocket is 2 3/4, 2 7/8 and 3inches. Using my blue marker to dot the edges.
The frames for the hat are 3, 3 1/4 and 3 1/2. I embossed the hat with the houndstooth cuttlebug folder and inked adges. I also used stickles around all the edges.

The firetruck was cut at 2 1/2 . I inked edges and used Signo Uniball pen to add detail. I also used pop dots to give it a little dimention.

The I LOVE USA was cut at 3 in all three colors. Since there is not a shadow for this I offset each color enough to see all colors and cuttlebugged the top layer with Swiss Dots.

I did the same with the 4th of July as it has no shadow. I cut at 5 inches in all 3 colors and used the Uniball pen to add detail. Again using pop dots and stickles.

I cut the banner at the top at 1 1/2 using the ink and Uniball pen. Added a little ribbon and buttons to it and enjoy.

The frame for the pictures for page 1 are as follows: 3 7/8 x 4 1/4 &6 x 6 1/2.
The frame for the picture for page 2 are as follows:
Base of hat-3, 3 1/4, 3 1/2
Base of rocket- 2 3/4, 2 7/8, 3
Journal box-3 3/4 x 4
Btw-The wagon was cut at 2 3/4

OK-THE PRIZE WILL BE A Tipsy for your Gypsy.  I will draw 1 name on Tuesday, June 8th.  See picture below
