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!
