Wonderful Day

Goodmorning lovely viewers,

Sunny and warm days are on it’s way as summer soon will land here in Holland! Oh and how I am in need of some sunshine because I have to say I am not such a fan of winter {although the layouts made with winter pictures are wonderful} So for my 8×8 layout I used “Vintage Summer Basics”and one sheet of “Vintage Spring Basics” to get in the mood ;-). As I am also part of the Cheery Lynn Designs DT I am allowed to pick beautiful dies every month and on this layout I used two new ones that I just got last Saturday.


Why a 8×8 layout you may wonder, well that will be because they take less space in my scrap room and they are a little faster  to make {little pieces of art I always say like ATC’s} But also because everything I have to make for Cheery Lynn Designs we have to ship to them for trade show’s like CHA and then it will not take up all of their booth space.



On this layout I added a bunch of layers behind the picture and lifted them up with foam tape as I also did for the 1933 sheet from the “Vintage Summer Basics” collection. If you do that you will get more depth on your layouts. What got me inspired to make this layout well I have to say it was this months mood board that went life on the blog last Monday although I already made a layout inspired by the mood board I totally could not help myself and created another one 🙂
