A Summer Layout Tutorial by Izzy Anderson

Izzy Anderson is featuring our May Creative Kit today with a look at her design elements on her adorable layout!


The water themed papers and icons from the May Creative Kit were perfect for this layout about my son learning to surf. I used a sheet of blue patterned paper as my backdrop and created waves on top with kraft paper. 

I handcut the waves. Nothing fancy, then stitched them down, creating a pocket in the bottom wave for my photos. 

I tucked a series of photos in the wave pocket and stitched them in place. Then I added a title and a few embellishments to the bottom wave. 

At the top of the layout, I created a cluster of stickers on a journaling card to balance the page. On the left, I added a shipping tag with a bit of strip journaling. 

Here's another look at the full layout:
