summer of 69 layouts: the rest

First, I wanted to let you know I'm guest posting at Scrap Rendezvous today about my Project Life process. You can even read it in French if you'd like!

Here on my blog I'm sharing some layouts from my August Studio Calico kit. I was finally able to use up an entire kit except for a few scraps and embellishments by making 13 layouts! This kit was absolutely beautiful with the most lovely colors. They were almost a little too lovely for a mom of two boys, but I ended up making some layouts about my own childhood, my niece, and even a butterfly with all the girlyness of this kit. :)

I did make a few boy layouts. For this one about basketball, I cut out the chevron from a paper in the Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection. You can see some other boyish layouts in this post


I love this porch where the cousins frequently hang out at their grandparents' house.



I used this border punchto create the orange scallops at the bottom of the porch layout and the yellow scalloped layer at the top of this next one about my niece.



These two are from my childhood... one from a birthday party and one with a photo of me and my dog.





And lastly, a layout about a butterfly I captured this summer. The colors of the kit perfectly complemented the photo.



Now I'm ready to get started on the September kit that just arrived. Lucky for me, I'm going to a crop this weekend so I should have plenty of time to put it to good use. :)
