Hi, there! and Wow! I cannot believe that this is my last post as a designer for The Paper Variety challenge blog. This was my first opportunity on a designing group and I am always thankful to Abby and Suzy to believe in me, when I had zero experience in design teams. I hope you have applied or will apply pretty soon (DT call is due this friday). Abby and Suzy are very professional, responsible and great persons to work with.
The challenge for this week is seasonal, it is all about summer! Honestly, it was a little difficult to me, since many of my summer pictures are travel or sports related, or I had them scrapped already. I cheated a little bit at this challenge since these photos were taken on the thanksgiving weekend, but hey!!! where I live is summer everyday! And to my side, I used this fabulous summer collection from Cosmo Cricket, Salt Air.
It could not be more perfect, summer theme with vintage fall colors!!
More than a collection of photos ranging from June to August, the challenge is to scrap some photos of what summer represents like fun activities like travel, vacations, pool and the beach.
I used the fabulous June 2011 Trio kit from 3 Scrappy Boys and a Pencil Lines sketch.
Here, there are some close-ups!
Love the Maya Road chipboard and Cosmo Cricket buttons.
The alphabet is from Sassafras Lass and Jillibean Soup.
The wood veneer butterfly is from Studio Calico and the star is from Bella BLVD Family Dynamix.
The bracket shaped chipboard is from GCD Studios and was misted with Studio Calico mist in blue grass. The label is a fussy cut from one the Cosmo Cricket patterned papers.
The cloud has white glitter over glossy accents. The rainbow was created with Stickles. The mint cloud was misted with Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I misted yellow mist to the sun border, then applied golden stickles. The sun middle chipboard was covered with patterned paper. I applied white craft ink to the white cloud, then Zing clear embossing powder.
