Welcome to Lori Whitlock's Summer Blog Hop! The design team members will be featuring projects with a summer theme. I chose to create a layout using Echo Park's A Perfect Summer collection created by Lori Whitlock. I just love it's fun colors and cute graphics.
Every summer we go to Florida to visit our family, and last year was Garrett's first time to get into the water. He loved it! Not afraid and just as happy as he could be. I can't wait to see how he likes it this year now that he will be turning two when we are there.
I love the technique of cutting the title out two times in different colored paper. It's a great way to get a title to stand out. When you are adhering the shape down, just be sure to offset the top layer a bit to create the shadow effect.
Here is a little closeup of the border that I cut out. It wasn't quite long enough to stretch across my 12x12 paper, so I copied and pasted a second one right next to the first so that their lines touched and then welded them together. It worked great!
This cute beach umbrella was the perfect shape for my beach layout! The diecut actually comes in pieces though and since I had it on a busy background, I decided to create a mat for it. I think that I might just have to create a tutorial on how I did that. It's so easy.
