The basic umbrella was invented more than 4,000 years ago and its early use has links back to Egypt, China and Greece, protecting people from the sun’s powerful rays and to provide shade.

Even today, people use umbrellas or parasols to provide a bit of cooling relief during summertime (not just a rainy day item!). Well, if you want to cast some shade on your next creations, then take a look at these summer scrapbook ideas — we forecast a 100% chance of having a great time making them!Continue reading Keep Cool With These Summer Scrapbook Projects

A quintessential and sweet summertime staple — the hydrating watermelon! Watermelon is a treat, any way you slice it.

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!Continue reading A Slice Above The Rest: Sweet Summer Scrapbook Layout
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!)
