“Summer Memories” by Gerry van Gent

Hello Crafty Friends!

Happy 1st of June! I don’t know about you but I am already in a summer mood. Especially working with our latest Sand and Sea collection makes that feeling even stronger. And of course, for my blog post today I prepared for you a layout (on an A4 canvas panel) featuring this absolutely gorgeous Sand and Sea collection. I placed my photo among the sea-world patterns which you will find in the collection. I am also featuring the brand new layered embellishments from the collection. These 3 dimensional stickers are so fabulous – a must have for sure!

To create the background I matched two pattern papers – “Beach this way” and “Tangled”

From “In the bluff” pattern paper I cut out the patterns and decorated the photo with them.

The layered embellishments sheet includes 26 epoxy coated bubbles which are so awesome to use.

Even though there are two cute sea horses stickers in the layered embellishments package I decided to do my favourite part and fussy cut a sea horse from the pattern paper (“Tangled”).

Look how happy and adorable the clownfish is…my kids were very happy to see “Nemo” next to their photo 🙂

That starfish is to die for!
