Gossamer Blue August Inspiration Blog Hop

Good morning! Today I'm taking part in the August Inspiration Blog Hop with other designers at Gossamer Blue. The August kits were some of my favorites in awhile because they had a summer theme! Summertime is by far when we are outside doing all kinds of activities! The girls still like playing in a little pool on our deck although they are almost too big for it now. Nevertheless, they like to lounge around in it and relax! ;) A little different from their baby days where I was watching their every move in the pool.

My goal for this layout was to add a lot of color to match their new red swimsuits. 

One of my favorite embellishments to work with lately are frames and these kits had quite an assortment. I built a row of them (backed with patterned paper) and embellished with flair, brads and more.

August Gossamer Blue Kits!

Good morning! Today, I have a couple of layouts to share that showcase the August Gossamer Blue kits! I adore any summer themed products so I went a little crazy buying extra add-ons this month. I can't resist brightly colored papers and embellishments! For this layout, I was able to document a fishing adventure with grandpa from last summer.

The patterned paper stripes help out some pops of color and I love that little "splish splash" fish flair. 

Next, I already have the 4th of July on a layout! I chose some of my favorite photos from the parade this year and printed our family photo larger to help it stand out.

 I pieced together red and blue stripes and then added some great red and blue embellishments from the kits - frames, brads, enamel stars and dots and stickers.
