Here is the layout for my July scrapbook club. We meet this Saturday and will complete this two page layout and crop until midnight. I wanted to use the same color scheme I used for the card club here. This is the Level 2 Boom-Di-Ada paper pack, which is very bright and cheery. Since it is summer and the colors are so bright, I wanted to make a summer layout. The two mats I have for this layout are for a 5 x 7 photo and a 4 x 6 photo. Club members will be able to make whatever size mat they need for their pics.
These layout ideas on from CTMH's Reflections book (pages used are listed in the recipe below). I think this is my favorite scrapbook program they sell right now. I love combining the one page ideas with each other. This book gives you cutting dimensions and different photo options. If you don't have any of their scrapbook programs, this is the one I suggest to buy.
Here is a close up for the first page title. I used various fonts from CTMH's chipboard letters. I like combining different fonts for "fun" titles. The paper flowers are the perfect color for this layout. I punched out a hollyhock flower to add to the middle with a sunflower brad. I sponged the chipboard with sunny yellow and then sponged the edge in sunflower ink. Don't ya just love ric rac?
Here is a close up for the second page title. I didn't have a sun stamp, so I improvised. I used the flowers from the Gratitude stamp set and layered them with pop dots. Love it! See the photo mat? I got this idea from the Reflections book (CTMH). They cut a bunch of paper and tucked it behind the photo mat to frame the picture. This was so easy and adds a great frame for a special picture.
