Happiness Comes In Waves: Summer Scrapbook Layout

Sunshine, tan lines. Sweet treats, beating the heat. Grillin’ time and chillin’ vibes. No matter the rhyme or reason, summer is pretty cool (like an awesome pair of sunglasses or a dip in a pool, ocean or lake). So wave in your happiness and happenings after a day out in perfect weather with this summer scrapbook layout!

Summer-themed layout idea with overlapping decorative square mats, two photos of kids at the beach, journaling and stickers.

To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of tangerine starfish paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Fold a piece of stripe skies paper in half diagonally. Using scissors, cut along the fold. Adhere one-half of the stripe skies paper on the layout as shown.

Step 3: Trim a 1/2″ L-shape from the remaining triangle stripe skies paper. Cut apart diagonally and adhere pieces on the top and bottom of the layout. Adhere a suns border sticker along the seam at the top and a wavy border sticker along the seam at the bottom.

Step 3: Cut seven 2-1/8” squares with White Solid Cardstock. Cut apart the summer grid paper and adhere five of the shapes (2” squares) on the white mats. Cut two more 2” squares with designer paper and mount on the remaining white mats. Adhere as shown on the diagonal seam.

Step 4: Cut a 7-1/4” x 2” strip with white sand dots paper. Adhere to the layout as shown.

Step 5: Cut two 4” x 5-1/2” photo mats with Purple Ice Solid Cardstock. Crop one photo to 5-1/4” x 3-3/4” and another to 3-3/4” x 5-1/4”. Mount on the mats and adhere to the layout.

Step 6: Add stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 7: Journal as desired.
