Graphic 45 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition



Hi all! I've had the St. Tropez collection by Prima Marketing in my stash for some time now and I've been itching to use it! I love the elements in this gorgeous collection. Initially, I was attracted to the blue! But after giving this collection a closer look, I fell in love with the sentiments and patterns. It's beautiful!



For this layout I used several cut-apart papers to mat the photos. I cut the sentimental strips from the cut-apart sheets to use for my journaling.


Once the pieces were all cut, I started moving them around the layout until I was happy with the placement. I kept adding layer after layer until I was happy.


I cut the crabby out from the cut-apart sheet and mounted it to the photo using foam squares to make them pop off the page.


Isn't this little guy the cutest? :)


I used Graphic45's cling stamp to create a fun journaling block for the layout. I carefully stamped over top of the "beach" sentiment and cut the image out using scissors. Then I adhered it to the layout as shown. I just love cutting shapes from patterned papers to make them work for me and having stamps around really helps stretch my supplies!



Here are some close-ups of the completed layout. I am pleased with how this summer layout turned out. Lots of layers, but still clean and simple.


To complete the layout, I used a ruler and a black marker to draw a 1/4" border around the layout. I added a few faux stitching photo corners around the photos to pull the photos and cluster of embellishments together.



Supplies: Prima Marketing Patterned Paper, die cuts, Metal star, Graphic45 Cling Stamp, Doodlebug Design Jewels

Before I go, I would like to share this simple mini album I created using Jillibean Soup's cut-apart sheets and stickers! I love how tiny and simple this mini looks. I wanted to create a mini showcasing my 8 year old's personality and I think I captured him perfectly.





Thanks for visiting today!
