A Slice Above The Rest: Sweet Summer Scrapbook Layout

A quintessential and sweet summertime staple — the hydrating watermelon! Watermelon is a treat, any way you slice it. Go to a farmers’ market during the warmer-weather months and you’ll find baskets and tables filled with the oval or spherical fruit (FYI, it’s part of the gourd family!) with a dark green, smooth rind and juicy reddish-pink pulp. And when it comes to summer picnics, BBQs, pool parties and campground meals, this delicious fruit always seems to be at the ready to consume and enjoy. Well, if you’re willing to take a bite into you next summer scrapbook project, then take a look at this sweet beauty!

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use the beach towel stripes designer paper as the base of the layout.

Step 2: Cut a piece of the watermelon seeds designer paper to measure 12″ x 9-1/2″. Adhere to the layout.

Step 3: Using the inside edge of the medium Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern with the Red Blade, cut a circle from the pineapple grid designer paper.

Step 4: Cut a piece of pineapple grid designer paper to measure 2″ x 6″. Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut several pieces at different widths/angles. Adhere behind the circle to create the sunshine “rays.” Adhere to the layout. Trim any excess using a scissors.

Step 5: Cut photo mats from starry night designer paper to measure: 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and 3-3/4″ x 4-1/4″.
