Crown Your European Memories With This UK Scrapbook Layout

England + Scotland + Wales + Northern Ireland = The brilliant United Kingdom!

But even more than just listing the names of what consists of this island nation off the northwestern coast of mainland Europe, it’s important to note the incredible history, culture and scenery that makes it a top tourist destination. The London Eye, Cardiff and Edinburgh Castles, Giant’s Causeway, centuries-old universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Pubs full of pints, fish and chips, bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie. Iconic red telephone booths and double-decker buses. The birthplace of William Shakespeare and The Beatles. And so much more that it’ll make you say “Blimey!”

Shoot for the Stars With These DIY Summer Scrapbook Cards

It’s no secret that there is a plethora of activities to do during a sweltering summer’s day (after slathering on the sunscreen, of course!) — pool days with friends, making sidewalk chalk art, playing beach volleyball, weekends at the lake and boating, family cookouts, yard games and more. We try to soak up as much sunshine as possible during these warm-weather months, but the outdoor fun doesn’t need to end when the sun goes down! The longer evenings call for after-dark fun like sitting around a crackling bonfire and toasting s’mores, camping in the backyard, chasing fireflies and stargazing. These nighttime wonders can light up unforgettable memories, and even more so when you use the layered glitters stickers from the Sunrays for Days Buy-It-All Bundle. (And they’re ONLY available in this bundle while supplies last!)

Dance in the moonlight (and then straight to your craft room!) with these DIY summer scrapbook cards!
