We are in the mood to splash and splash around here but the weather is not cooperating! The pool is open and the kid has his bathing suit ready. Instead of getting fun photos for this year, I reverted back to last year and a fun day we had with friends at the beach. The Poolside Collection is not just for pools! I have used it for 2 different beach layouts and could keep going!
You can see here that I topped the patterned paper with a FREE cut file from Paper Issues. I used the Wheel from the Seas The Day File. I backed some of the openings with the 6×6 paper pad, but I ended up covering most of that.
If you look close, I used Nuvo clear to add detail to my splashes of water. I used it on all of the water pieces and in the center of the flowers. It may not translate well here, but in real life, it looks super cool.
So, if you don’t have any pool photos, grab out those beach photos and get to documenting!
Hi there crafty friends,
Zsoka here with you today sharing a new layout I’ve made for Fancy Pants Designs.
I’ve used the Poolside collection with a little bit of The Bright Side on this one.
I chose this adorable Crab cut file from Paige Evans (Silhouette ID: #267053) and cut it from textured white card stock. Then I backed it with patterned papers from both collections and adhered it on the background paper (from The Bright Side collection).
I kind of put the photo in the crab’s claws but now that I’m looking at the close-up I notice it came out on the left side. Oh well, you get the idea :). For my title I used a die cut, Fun in the Sun, which perfectly fits my photo! Because apparently at that age eating sand is fun, ha! I also tucked that adorable smiling sun die cut behind the title and adhered another phrase die cut on the photo. Oh, and of course I had to use a rubber charm clip! How cute is that flamingo float?!
There is a patterned paper in the Poolside collection that has these big monstera leaves on it and I felt the need to fussy cut some! There’s also some in the ephemera pack. It’s totally random but I tucked these leaves in between the crab’s leg haha! Random or not, I like the way it looks :).
On one side I created a flower cluster, again, totally random, but I love flowers so it’s all good!
On the other side I created another cluster with some summer icons like flip flops, snorkelling mask and a swim ring. To create a dimensional look I used foam adhesive in many places.
This layout came together very quickly, it’s quite possibly the quickest layout I have ever made! But I still like how it turned out, I hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by today, have an amazing day!
I am on a mission to document one of the funnest days last summer. We went to the beach with friends and had the best time. It was warm but overcast so the photos are fantastic from that day. I believe, if there were a contest, this photo would receive ‘photo of the day!’
For my layout, I used Poolside. Totally workable for a beach layout!!
I dug in my stash for some coordinating cardstock, I really wanted to use the wave paper but wanted a border.
In the photo above, you can see the small shark fins. I used a small punch and the sheet of paper from the 6×6 paper pad. The details in the 6×6 are a much smaller scale, which was perfect for collecting shark fins for this layout.
You can see that I inserted the title through the blue pool float. I think you can still make out the title and it helps draw your eye to the sentiment.
I hope you are having as much fun with this collection as I am. Oh, I did dig out some buttons from Wish Season and a flair from Making Waves. I think I have mentioned this before, but most of the Fancy Pants collections I have, can really be mixed and match nicely.
