Creative Scrapbook Layout: Summer Fun

Yet another scrapbook layout...I told you that I was on a roll.  This came together fairly fast and I can't wait to add some summery pictures to it.  

Side note: I clearly need to be separated from my new Tim Holtz Distress Ink or at least get more colors - I think I have used it on EVERY single project that I have done since purchasing it.  :)  

Materials Used:
  • 12 x 12 base - DCWV Cardstock Pack
  • Accent Strip trimmed to 4 1/2 x 12" - K and Company "Amy Butler Belle" Pad (bought at Joann's for $4.95 last week! I do realize that this kind of goes against my no new paper or Cricut carts until my birthday...oh well.)
  • 2 Photo Mats - 4 3/4 x 4 3/4, 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 & 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • "Summer" cut at 2" from Winter Woodland (welded using Gypsy)
  • "fun" cut at 2" from Cursive 101 (welded using Gypsy)
  • Sand cut at 2.63" from Paper Doll Dress-Up
  • Paper Doll & Outfit cut at 4.71" from Paper Doll Dress Up
  • Sun cut at 4" from Create a Critter
  • Crab cut at 2" from Create a Critter
  • Sandcastle cut at 2" from Create a Critter
  • Starfish cut at 2" from Create a Critter
  • Clam Shell (light pink) cut at 1 1/4" from Create a Critter
  • Conch Shell (dark pink) cut at 3 1/2" from Paper Doll Dress-Up
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap
  • Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - White
  • Shells and Starfish embossed using Swiss Dots folder & Cuttlebug
