August Creative Kit Inspiration by Izzy Anderson

Design Team member Izzy Anderson is featuring our August Creative Kit today with some looks at how she used the kit's brag cards on her projects!


Hello, everyone!  I'm here to share a closer look at how I used some of the kit elements on this summer layout.

I took this photo of my son on what we consider the first day of summer. Of course, that's the day after the school year ends. We always do something particularly summer-y on that day. It usually involves water and ice cream! On this day, we hit the pool and had a frosty later that afternoon. 

I needed a spot for my journaling and wasn't sure where to put in on the page. I decided to type out a sentence or two and tuck it in vertically alongside my photo. Even though it's very short, it covers the basics of Who, What, Where, Why and When. Well, not who. But I have only one kid so I know who is in the photo!

The kit I used featured the Summer Sun collection from Fancy Pants Designs and included this cute set of cards. 

I used several of these cards on the layouts I made with this kit. On this particular layout, I used the three circled in yellow. 

The card with the orange strip circled at the bottom is the vertical Take Note card seen above. It was the perfect landing spot for the die cut that reads: Another Day in Paradise

The card that says Travel: I tucked that card under the top of my photo.  I used the Hello Summer card at the top of my layout, and layered a few die cuts on top. 

Here's a look at the layout with the cards circled. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week!
