Crate Paper Poolside

Hello and welcome! Today I am sharing a summer-themed layout with you using Crate Paper's new Poolside collection as well as the fabulous wood veneer heart frame from Maggie Holmes' Craft Market collection. I thought it would be a great compliment to my "summer love" title.

I started by adhering the heart frame to a piece of patterned paper with wet adhesive. After it was dry, I trimmed around the edges and adhered the heart to a piece of black and white striped paper from Poolside. I set to work embellishing the different spaces in the frame, first with the gold sequin 'Love" -- what a great embellishment to use as a title!

I had this picture of my son which I am just in love with. I added a gold clip and used foam adhesive to adhere the picture to the layout. I kept my journaling simple with a few typed strips.

I love how this layout turned out -- lots of color, texture and dimension -- my favorite! Have you been mixing and matching Crate Paper's collections?

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. Have a great one!
