Sweet Summer Memories...

Hey there!
Happy Hip Hop Thursday!!
SUMMER has FINALLY arrived here...
and JUNE is almost OVER... LOL
I thought I better document our June activities
before I forgot what we did the past month...
I decided to make a quick little mini album that I can store or show off easily.
I am a huge fan of mini albums and LOVE to create them.
( I have a whole basket full in my kitchen for peeps to peruse
when they are here and we are cooking or visiting.)

I used the GORGEOUS JULY Kit of the Month
{Better Together}
Here is a SNEAK PEEK for you...
{I used the sentiment on one of my pages below}
and the newly released ADORABLE kit
 Sweet Summer Memories by Simple Stories

I printed all my photos in wallet size.
The pages are approx. 3X4 inches.
Some pages are paper, some cardstock and some chipboard.
I added stamped sentiments and images, printed quotes,
photos, fabric and ribbon tabs, & epoxy stickers.
I also did some machine sewing around the edges after distressing.
I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole in the corner of each page,
and threaded them on a blue ring. Easy Peasy!
If you click on my collage, it should pop up in a new window
so you can see the little pages in detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I think this kit is SOOOO ADORABLE..
so I decided to use my Challenge Card
for a LAYOUT...
Life is what you make it...
8X8 layout
featuring stamps from Unity Kit Time for Travel

 I stamped the little circle sentiments...
then punched them out and adhered to my layout
with foam mounting tape for a 3D effect.
The circles fit PERFECTLY in the bottlecaps on my Tim Holtz paper...
 let the good times roll... I added the month and year with a simple date stamp..
 loving those alpha stamps in the June KOM... perfect for titles!
I alternated the circle sentiments with some clear epoxy sentiment stickers.
