Pink Paislee Hometown Summer

I've been working with this new Hometown Summer line by Pink Paislee this week and I can't even tell you how much it's making me long for summer. I love the bright colors and fun icons in this line. It was perfect for scrapping these pictures from last summer.

I remember that it was the first time that all 3 of the kids were brave enough to jump into the pool. And they did that over and over and over. It's amazing how they never get tired of it. Naturally, it comes with the screaming "look at me, look at me, take my picture." So I knew I had to get the story down on a page.
I was inspired by a home decor piece I spotted on that had a jumble of letters falling all over a frame. I used the same concept to make my title a little more interesting.

I like how the letters are literally “jumping in” to the page. I used white embroidery floss to add a bounce line and a place to ground the title. I placed the letter stickers on pop dots so that they would stand out from the busy red background.
I cut up the wave patterned paper to make a wide border for my page. I added several overlapping layers and inked the edges with a light brown stamp pad for dimension.

This was such a fun, bright page to make. Summertime memories and pages are my favorite things to scrap. I look forward to the coming season.

I just finished editing my first video and will be posting it on Monday. Hope you like it!


  1. Cute layout, I like how the photos look like they are jumping in also.

  2. That's really funny, I didn't even notice the placement of the photos!

  3. I seriously can't wait to get this line. It's my only MUST HAVE left on my CHA list :) But it's coming to mama :) Your layout is just fantastic!

  4. Such a fabulous layout! So fun. That title and those waves are adorable!

  5. Love the way you put the title. Great line
