Lazy Summer Days

Hello Everyone

Today I'm going to share my Lazy Summer Days Layout with you all.
I love this collection from Graphic 45. I have always love the sea and way it’s always changing, one of my dreams is to retire to a house by the sea with an old rocking chair on a veranda and loose days just watching it.  So when I saw this collection, lot of ideas jumped into my head.  I have made a few different projects with this collection. This one is a layout for my daughter Kate. I chose the papers I wanted to work with and some matching cardstocks. I used “by the sea” for a frame around my page and cut the middle of it out. I matted it onto a piece of  Cajun cardstock and used foam tape to build it up. I used “Set Sail” for the foundation of my layout and added the frame on top.  I used the middle bit I had cut out when I did the frame from my “by the sea” paper, matted it onto some black cardstock and adhered it to my layout in the middle of my frame. I added some borders to the top and bottom of my page.
I used a second sheet of “by the sea” to cut out some of the images that Graphic 45 are so famous for. I added them to my frame with foam tape to build them up. I added some charms, flowers and ribbons to fill it all in a bit more. I found a photo of Kate taken at the beach and matted it. A chipboard quote was all I needed to add to finish the page.  The beautiful images and colours in this Graphic 45 “By the Sea” collection work so well together. the perfect collection for anyone lucky enough to live by the sea, or had holidays by the sea or like us, just visit from time to time and dream!

 I taught this layout at the 2015 Brisbane Scrapbooking & Papercraft Expo and it was enjoyed by all. Graphic 45 are kindly sharing it on their blog and I though I would share it with you too. Graphic 45's blog is always worth having a look at, click here to see their blog.

I have in fact been organized enough to make this layout into a kit which is available for purchase on the website of Seriously Scrapbooking if you would like to make the page.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
