More Simple Stories - "I {heart} Summer" inspiration - with Linda Eggleton

A big hello there everyone....happy Friday to you all!
I am back today to share some more inspiration using Simple Stories "I {heart} Summer" collection, which is such a bright & cheery one - perfect for all those summer/holiday/vacation pics!
First up I have a layout...
"Kioloa Beach Fun"
(Based on 1st Jan Stuck?! sketch)
I've used a variety of papers, stickers, brads & flair badges from the collection & will go into more detail with my close up a full list of products used, with links, is at the bottom of my post.
Pics are from our 1 week getaway over Christmas down the south coast at a little place called Kioloa.
My dog Oscar had a ball....his first time ever going to the beach! :)

Here you can see my main cluster of Green Tara flowers & one of the Simple Stories flair alpha stickers from the Expressions cardstock stickers for my title, which I've outlined in a black journal pen.

Here I've cut a few tags from the Newsprint side of the Yellow Boardwalk/Newsprint PP....with a few stickers added on top and also some twine tied onto the ends of the tags.

Here are a few of the brads from the Decorative Brads pack....and you can also see some of my stamping on the Teal Boardwalk paper, using Kaisercraft crackle stamp.

I've used some of the leftover pieces of the 2Crafty Circular Panel from last month's kit....adding them either side of my cluster & journaling (I have more journaling on the back of my layout as well)

And here you can see a bit of a close up of the template work on the background.
Just some modelling paste spread onto The Crafters Workshop "Paint Lids" template....very easily done & I love the effect :)
Ok, my 2nd share is a really simple card.
No fuss, no mess....just simple layering of a few papers for this one, with a few added brads.
Thanks so much for dropping by today....
Take care & happy scrapping!!  xx
