Summer Visit | A Scrapbook Layout

Happy Thursday! Where has this week gotten off to? Has it gone by fast for you? I actually had a few quiet days to catch up from the craziness that was last week. I had some time to work on current and future projects. It feels nice to get a bit ahead.

Today I have a layout to share. These are photos from a night out with my nephews a few weeks ago. My sister-in-law called one day to say they would be coming through Tennessee on their way home from a road trip and wanted to stop and stay for a day. It was unexpected, but I get so little time with these guys, I’ll take whatever time I can get!

An Unplanned Summer Visit

I had more photos that I wanted to use than space allowed for on the sketch. I ended up creating some 4×6 canvases in Photoshop Elements, divided the space into clipping masks and then dropped in all the photos I needed. I printed them out on 4×6 photos – no cutting or matting necessary!

I love that this collection includes a variety of journaling cards and 4×6 elements that can just be cut out. It makes the page come together so quickly. And the alphabet sticker sheet has a variety of sizes and colors in the letters so it’s easy to create an interesting title. I added additional detail with some buttons and crochet thread and called it done!

I have several of these Simple Stories collections. One day, I’d like to put them together with my large collection of divided page protectors. These collections have elements that perfectly coordinate with many of the different page protectors from We R Memory Keepers.

If you’ve been on the fence about using these collection because you don’t have any of the divided page protectors, don’t worry about it. As you can see, these elements are great for standard layouts too! All supplies are linked in the thumbnails below:

Thanks for stopping by today!

  3. What a fun summer layout – I really like all the colors in it. And what a fun surprise to have an unexpected visit! Last year my nephew called one day and wanted to stay overnight (the next night!) & go to the Armed Forces Bowl here in Dallas – of course, we made arrangements for it so we could visit with him & enjoy my 3-year-old great-nephew. (As an added bonus, he got us tickets to the game too!) It was totally unexpected, but such a fun quick visit. So glad you got to enjoy a day with your nephews.

  13. Oh this is a great two-page spread. So colorful and interesting to look at. I see you have a badge for Nic and May’s class, but it looks to me like you could teach them a thing or two.
