Sandcastle Layout

Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Hey friends! I have a new layout to share today - my very first using my brand new Go the Scenic Route collection and the Sandcastle cut file from my 20 Days of Summer Cut Files!
 I received some samples of Go the Scenic Route in the mail last week, although no 12x12 papers or a few of the embellishments, but I just couldn't wait to play even without the entire collection! I began by die cutting my Sandcastle cut file from white cardstock and then backed it with Go the Scenic Route papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad and the Boxed Cards since I don't have the 12x12 Papers yet :)
 On a piece of kraft cardstock I splashed watered down white acrylic paint and let it dry. I adhered the cut file on top using foam squares to create dimension and shadows. I tucked two 3x4" photos into the top of the sandcastle. I only took these photos at the beginning of July - I had this sandcastle cut file designed already and when the kids starting building a sandcastle I was like HOLD UP! PICTURE TIME! I HAVE TO SCRAP THIS lol.
To embellish I added three of the Puffy Word Stickers color-on-color so the blue "HAPPY" in a blue space, the pink "PLAY" is in a pink section, and the yellow "FUN" is in the yellow "sand" at the bottom. I finished the title with Chipboard Stickers so all together it's "SUNSHINE, FUN, AND HAPPINESS".
I sprinkled a few colorful Chipboard Sticker dots across the bottom, added a "happy" heart Chipboard Sticker and red geotag Chipboard Sticker at the top, and wrote journaling on the right edge along with the date stamped below. I'm finally learning to stamp the dates as I create the layout to save myself so much time searching for the dates in a year or so when I finally put this layout in a scrapbook! To finish, I placed a strip of colorful Washi Tape across the top edge.
 I hope you are excited about my new Go the Scenic Route collection which starts shipping to stores in a few weeks and are inspired to purchase my 20 Days of Summer Cut Files to document your summer memories! Have a great rest of the week!
